Raised in a small town, Carla (Sara Cobo) is an intelligent, loyal, charismatic and ambitious 18-year-old who dreams big and achieves bigger. She launches herself into the big city and lands the job of a lifetime at the most popular celebrity gossip site in the city, Popland.us. There she quickly learns that VIP access and exclusive shots come at a price. Although the competitive world of the paparazzi puts Carla's career on thin ice, her persistence and determination never let her down.
Popland features both established and emerging talent from Latin America and the US, including Sara Cobo (Mexico), Jon Ecker (U.S.), Ricardo Abarca (Mexico) and Manuela Gonzalez (Colombia). The story was written by Argentinean writers Marcelo Camano (Vidas Robadas, El Capo, Montecristo) and Claudia Bono (Ninas Mal; teen comedy, Ensename a Vivir).
The show's music video for its catchy theme song 'Click', a reference to the sound of paparazzi cameras vying for the perfect shot, has been all the buzz leading up to the premier thanks to its eclectic trio of Latin super stars. 'Click's' roster of talent includes Mexican beauty Anahi formerly of RBD, Moderatto genius Bryan Amadeus, and the eccentric Ale Sergi of Miranda. The video is available on www.tr3s.com.
