Background and casting processEdit

Producer Nathalie Lartilleux's plans for a new telenovela were revealed in the spring of 2015. Goto confirmed in an interview that Un camino hacia el destino is not a remake of La hija del jardinero. Instead, it is based on some elements from the original telenovela.[2] Casting for the telenovela began in late October 2015 where Paulina Goto auditioned for the lead role of "Luisa Fernanda". Goto took violin lessons for her role before production began on the program.[10][11] Her casting in the telenovela was announced days later on November 6, 2015. Argentine actor, Horacio Pancheri, was later cast in the lead male role. Eugenia Cauduro and René Strickler were both confirmed for the telenovela in mid-November.[12][13] The opening theme song of the telenovela is performed by Paulina Goto.[14]

FilmingEdit

Production on the telenovela began on November 23, 2015 on location in Villa Victoria, a town located outside Mexico City. Additional scenes are filmed in Mexico City and at Televisa San Ángel. The cast also filmed several scenes in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in mid-February 2016.[15][14][16]

PromotionEdit

On January 19, 2016, a private press event for the telenovela was held at Televisa San Ángel. A trailer featuring new scenes was also presented, and the principal cast and crew members were officially introduced to the media. Goto played the violin with an orchestra and sang the telenovela's theme song, "Mi camino eres tú". The event was streamed live on the telenovela's official website.[17]

BroadcastEdit

The series premiered on January 25, 2016, in Mexico on El Canal de las Estrellas and currently airs weeknights.[18] On February 23, 2016, it began airing weeknights in United States on Univision.
