Storytelling Assignment Two: Serial Protagonism

I am trying to catch up while I have time/fast internet, so fairly quickly after assignment one I have assignment 2.  (Unit 2 was not very exciting, but I understand the difference between German soap operas and Columbian telenovelas now.)

This is one where you’re supposed to guess who I am describing–if you know the show, it should be obvious rather quickly.
