ABOUT QUEEN OF THE SOUTH:
QUEEN OF THE SOUTH tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. In the process, she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run.
Starring Alice Braga (“City of God”) as Teresa, the original drama series is based on the global best-selling novel “La Reina Del Sur,” by internationally-acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. The literary page-turner also yielded one of the most popular super series of all time for USA’s sister network, Telemundo.

Guest stars include Joaquim de Almeida (“Our Brand is Crisis”), Jon Ecker (“Narcos”) and James Martinez (“Breaking Bad”).
The drama is executive produced by David T. Friendly (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “Courage Under Fire”), along with M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller (“The Final Girls”). Scott Rosenbaum (“Gang Related”) will serve as showrunner. The pilot was written by Fortin and Miller, directed by Charlotte Sieling and executive produced by Pancho Mansfield (“Damien”).
