Spanish-Language Telenovela ‘Camelia la Texana’ to Premiere on Netflix

The hit Spanish-language telenovela “Camelia la Texana” will premiere exclusively on Netflix.

Based on Los Tigres del Norte’s song “Contrabando y Traición,” the 70s-set drama follows a young, scorned woman from San Antonio (played by Mexican actress Sara Maldonado) who becomes the first queen of the drug cartels.

The show was developed by Campanario Entertainment and produced by Argos Television.

“It is a pleasure to be able to bring to our members in Mexico a hit TV series that has had such great success in the U.S., and that the Mexican public has been wanting to watch,” Jessica Rodriguez, VP of Content at Netflix, said in a press release. “For us, it is very important to continue to offer exclusive, innovative content that appeals to the interests of each country where we are present.”

The 60-episode series was created by Diego Ramón Bravo and directed by Carlos Bolado.
