So we got lift-off on this series which has gone from Happening to NOT and now back again.

It was originally scheduled to start on FOX Life in August but all that changed when the channel ended up Lifeless at the end of August.

Now it's been rescheduled to start on FOX instead, from 16 November, Mondays to Fridays.

It's going to air for a year, with the finale on 9 November 2021.

This is what it's about: 
Talk about a story for our times.

From Mzansi to Mexico. The story is the same.

Corrupt politicians with their evil, greedy fingers grabbing livelihoods that don't belong to them and a woman who's had enough.

This is the battle that faces Regina Bárcenas (Silvia Navarro) on the FOX novela The Candidate.

It premieres on Monday, 16 November at 15h05, with an omnibus on Sundays at 07h05.

Regina starts out as a politician's wife when her husband Alonso (Rafael Sánchez Navarro) decides to run for president.

The result: he exposes his sicko true colours, which are corrupt, wicked and perverse. He's willing to do anything to defeat his opponents.

What's been seen cannot be unseen.

And Regina sees it. She starts turning against him, changing from ally to enemy, with a weapon who goes by the name of Gerardo (Víctor González).

Regina had a relationship with Gerardo in college and they're reaquainted when Gerardo runs against Alfonso for the presidency.

Who's sexier? A corrupt Pig or someone who's honest?

Regina believes the latter obvs and soon becomes involved in politics as The Candidate herself, with Gerardo as her biggest fan.

Here's a first look at the teasers: The Candidate Teasers - August 2020
