Star acquires telenovelas 'Blue An Angel', 'Runaway Love' from RCTV

MUMBAI: A guardian angel sent to earth to protect a girl! A woman and man trying to escape their suffocating existence!

These are the themes of two telenovela formats that have been acquired by Star India from Venezuelan media company RCTV International.

Speaking to, RCTV International GM and V-P Jose Escalante confirmed the news that two shows Runaway Love and Blue An Angel have been sold to Star. Sources in Star India stated that the two shows are a part of the slew of formats that the broadcaster has acquired recently at events like MipTV.

Runaway Love deals with a poor book salesman accidentally meeting a wealthy woman on the same day they decide to buy their wedding rings.

What follows is a story of passion and danger. The woman imagined that she would have a safe life as she is engaged to the son of a very rich man. Their adventures begin when they are incriminated in the robbery of a jewelry store. They see being together as an opportunity to escape from their stifled lives. Things get complicated further when the woman's father joins in the chase.

Blue An Angel, meanwhile, deals with a guardian angel who is sent to Earth to protect a young girl named April. Blue has little discipline and has a penchant for getting into trouble. He also admires the beauty of women. However, before he goes to earth his teacher warns him not to get involved with any mortal.

He takes this advice until he meets April, an English language teacher at an orphanage. April's grandfather is the orphanage's benefactor.
