After the Woman of Steel season 2 ended last Friday, Telemundo has brought on more girl power to rule our TV screens again this December with the premiere of the channel’s new telenovela “The Queen of Miami”.
It premiered this Monday, 11 December at 10pm and stars Kate del Castillo (star of Queen of the South) as Anastasia Cardona, the widow of a famous drug lord whose mind has been morphed by the violence she’s seen.
The result: she teams up with two cocaine traffickers to take on a drug cartel. Kinda reminds you of the Woman of Steel, yeah?
Here’s a feel of what to expect, followed by the first teasers:
Miami was not born of its tourism, its beaches or its climate. It was born in a turbulent era that marked the destiny of an entire nation and made the Magic City the drug capital.
In this world of crime, violence and dangerous alliances, a betrayed woman rises as its ruthless queen. Anastasia Cardona will make of paradise a territory of her devises, her whims and her orders.
