La Reina del Sur
- 2 Seasons
La Reina del Sur--the Queen of the South--is one of the most popular telenovelas eve produced. Shot on location in four countries and featuring an international cast, it tells the story of Teresa Mendoza, an ordinary young woman who becomes the head of an international drug cartel. The story opens in Sinaloa, Mexico, where Teresa is living a normal life, working at her job and hanging out with her friends. Everything changes when she meets El Guero, a handsome pilot who shows her what love is and sweeps her into a life of luxury. She knows he's involved in the drug trade, but she turns a blind eye. When El Guero disappears, Teresa is forced to fend for herself. The people who turned on him are coming for her now, and she doesn't know who she can trust. All she knows is that she has to run--and keep running. Teresa vows that she will not just survive, but triumph. She will outsmart her enemies and get revenge on the men who betrayed her lover. Teresa's adventures take her across the world, to glittering heights and spectacular lows. She goes to prison, she finds friends and allies, she once again knows love, loss and betrayal. Nothing stops her. But as tough as she gets, she always keeps her woman's heart. Teresa never forgets anyone who shows her kindness, and she never forgets her first love. Above all, she never forgets who she is: the frightened girl who became a queen.
