Pasión Prohibida is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by United States-based television network Telemundo Television Studios, Miami. It is a remake of the Turkish telenovela Aşk-ı Memnu by Ece Yörenç and Melek Gençoğlu. It has been adapted from Halit Ziya Uşaklıgil's novel Aşk-ı Memnu, published in 1900, but takes place in the modern-day Miami, instead of the novel's late 19th century setting. Jencarlos Canela and Mónica Spear starred as the protagonists. Telemundo announced that the novel was going to continue, but the chances run out, because the star of the show, Monica Spear, was murdered.
