¿Dónde Está Elisa? (In English: Where is Elisa?) is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by the United States-based television network Telemundo. This mystery is a remake of Chilean telenovela ¿Dónde Está Elisa? produced by TVN in 2009.This telenovela was sold to 90 countries around the world.
Telemundo began airing DEE on March 8, 2010 and will likely air the serial from Monday to Friday over about 26 weeks during the 2010 season. As with most of its other telenovelas, the network broadcasts English subtitles as closed captions on CC3. Telenovelas are somewhat like soap operas, but telenovelas have a definite ending, typically lasting less than one year.
Based on the successful book "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (Swedish: Män som hatar kvinnor, also known as Men Who Hate Women in English), a 2009 Swedish film adaptation of the novel of the same name by the late Swedish author/journalist Stieg Larsson and then adapted by Pablo Illanes, who wrote the Chilean version that preceded that of Telemundo. Illanes says that the inspiration of the story comes from the book and the real life drama of British native Madeleine McCann in Portugal. The list of suspects is long, and it includes family members, fellow students, and friends of the teenager who went to the same places that she used to go to before disappearing.
The first sneak peek of the production was shown on Tuesday January 13, 2010. The series was produced in Miami Florida.
The filming started on 27 January and ended in May, 2010.
Starting from 26 of July the series shared the 1 hour time slot with another Telemundo's telenovela La Diosa Coronada. The last episode of this series was aired on Tuesday August 10, 2010.
The lives of the Altamira family are changed forever. Their lives are engulfed by the events in the disappearance of Elisa (Vanessa Pose), the oldest daughter of Mariano Altamira (Gabriel Porras) and Dana Riggs Altamira (Sonya Smith), a white woman of part-Hispanic and part-non-Hispanic ancestry.
Once she disappears, we begin to learn the secrets of every member of the family and friends; the paranoias start, histories from the past, themes that were supposed to be buried. Then the recriminations among family members start.
In the midst of family conflicts many suspects come to light, among them family members (Elisa's parents, uncles, cousins) fellow students, former and present Altamira employees, as well as friends that used to go to the same places that Elisa would frequent. Eventually, one of them will emerges as the kidnapper....
Despite the continual efforts to find Elisa, a more prominent theme is the disintegration of the Altamira clan. In the initial episode they look like one big happy clan, but there are many problems beneath that surface which come to light. A major theme of the story is the consequences of hypocrisy.
