About La Reina del Sur

About

A young woman from Mexico becomes southern Spain's most powerful drug trafficker. The Roberto Stopello-created series is based on a novel of the same name by author Arturo Perez-reverte. An English language remake was made for USA Network and was called Queen of the South.

Trivia

Telemundo was a co-producer on both seasons one and two. They worked in conjunction with Antena 3 network and RTI Producciones for the first, and with Netflix for the second. The $10 million budget for the show made it the second most expensive telenovela ever produced by Telemundo behind El Señor de los Cielos.
