I broke my 10 year long TV-fast on Monday. Yes , you read it right. We have donated both our TV sets to an orphanage in Vikramgarh 10 years ago. Since then, I had never watched any TV program...

Jane the Virgin (#JaneOnRomedy) is an American romantic comedy-drama television series which debuted in the US on 13 October 2014. The series is created by Jennie Snyder Urman and is a loose adaptation of the Venezuelan tele-novela series created by Perla Farias, originally known as Juana La Virgen.

Set in the Alpha-World city of Miami, located on the Atlantic coast of beautiful Southeastern Florida, the series details the surprising and unforeseen events that take place in the life of Jane Villanueva, whose family tradition and a vow to save her virginity until her marriage to a detective are shattered when the doctor mistakenly inseminates her artificially during a checkup. To make matters worse, the biological donor is a married man, a former playboy and cancer survivor who is not only the new owner of the hotel where Jane works, but was also her former teenage crush.

Jane The Virgina synopsis:



W
FI094_Jane the Virgin_1X2-c2c-01What happens when a young, devout woman discovers she has been accidentally, artificially inseminated?! Jane is a young, sweet, simple 23-year-old Latina, working at a hotel to finance her studies and saving herself for marriage. She has a boyfriend too -- Michael, a detective in the police force – and she dreams of a good life together, powered by her college education. Things seem to be on course for young Jane, until a visit to her doctor for a routine checkup finds her life turned violently upside down -- she is artificially inseminated by her doctor by accident!

Caught between her boyfriend Michael, who has no desire to raise another man's child, and Rafael, the owner of the sperm, whose battle with cancer means this is his only chance for a biological child, Jane is in a complete quandary! Petra, Rafael's wife, also wants the baby – but only to prolong her failing marriage while the pre-nuptial agreement is still in effect, where she would be able to acquire a huge amount of money. Petra, incidentally,  is also unfaithful to Rafael.

This is the exact spot between a rock and a hard place where the sweet and lovely Jane finds herself. And perplexed as she is, she is also torn between the views of her mother Xiomara, and grandmother Alba, who have their own differing opinions about what Jane should do.

The twists and turns and the curved balls Life keep throwing at Jane and how the sweet and protected young woman, surrounded by interesting characters, deals with them, form  the  premise of this engrossing, dramatic story.

The citation at its TV Program Of the Year Award win at the AFI Awards USA 2015 puts it succinctly indeed:Jane The Virgin delivers one of the year's most delightful surprises - a modern melodrama from the telenovela mold, with lively theatrics that elevate it into a class by itself. Immaculately adapted by Jennie Snyder Urman, this romantic comedy finds humor in a tiny, beating heart - and witnesses the birth of a star with Gina Rodriguez's wide-eyed performance.
