Rules of Deception was a telenovela planned for the American television network MyNetworkTV. Twentieth Television was developing this limited-run serial, based on the 1999 Caracol TV series La Guerra de Las Rosas. The unproduced series is also known in singular tense, as Rule of Deception. Guy Busick was head writer. This amorous tale involved Mia and Emily, two beautiful best friends who find their relationship shattered by unexpected events. They are each seduced by the same handsome man, named Richard. One tyst was for love, but the other was for money. Richard falls for the poor girl, Mia, yet he dreams of becoming a rich playboy. When the wealthy Emily discovers the duplicity, she frames Mia into signing documents that eventually get her thrown into prison. Once Mia is released, she uncovers the conspiracy and seeks revenge against those ruined her life. Originally, Fox developed Rules for syndication under the "Desire" umbrella title. MyNetworkTV then planned to air 65 hourlong episodes on weekdays, with a recap on Saturdays. It was to be filmed at Stu Segall Productions in San Diego. The show was set to premiere on June 5, 2007, but production was postponed. MyNetworkTV's March 1, 2007 announcement that it stopped developing scripted content spelled an end for both the series and the network's slate of telenovelas.
