Bravo Media jets off to the cultural mecca of Latin America when new docu-series Mexican Dynasties. Full of the unexpected – fashion, unique restaurants, and museums aplenty – Mexico City is a tastemaker’s dream. Three family dynasties – the Allendes, the Bessudos and the Madrazos – whose fortunes stem from the entertainment, beverage and luxury car industries, respectively, offer a glimpse into the multilayered, complex culture found in Mexico.
Connected to each other through a string of personal and professional relationships going back decades, these families have Mexico City and all of its offerings in the palms of their hands. With both humor and heart, they challenge stereotypes, raise a few eyebrows and proudly showcase their over-the-top lifestyles. And in a world where the bonds of family know no bounds, they prove that blood is always thicker than tequila.
The Allendes, the Bessudos and the Madrazos perfectly embody the hallmarks of their Mexican culture, one that is outrageously fun, traditional and forward-thinking. Family is at the root of all their successful pursuits, but a bond this tight breeds both exhilarating highs and challenging lows. Megastar and 80s heartthrob Fernando Allende and his devoted wife of 30 years, Mari Allende, struggle to cope with the fact that their sons Elan and Adan Allende are not as close as they once were, which drives a wedge within the family. With Elan and his wife Jenny Allende busy raising their two young children and flourishing in their music careers, Adan is left to make a name for himself in the industry solo. As the brothers vie to fill their famous father’s shoes, tensions between Mari and her outspoken daughter-in-law come to a head.
