Moderator: Marcela Isaza, Entertainment Reporter, Associated Press

Proving to be Telemundo’s most successful “Super Series” in its revamping of the traditional telenovela format, La Reina del Sur, according to Telemundo Entertainment EVP Ronald Day, has “helped redefine Hispanic media and set a new standard in our content offering,” cultivating a tremendous fan base, and paving the way for an equally popular English-language version, Queen of the South. Adapted from the novel by Arturo Pérez-Revente, the series follows the tumultuous and dangerous life of Teresa Mendoza, a Mexican woman who rises to the top as the most powerful drug trafficker in Spain and then finds it difficult to leave this world behind after assuming a new identity under the Witness Protection program. Kate del Castillo, who has developed her own fervid following for her performance as the complex and conflicted Teresa, will appear with fellow cast members Isabella Sierra (Sofia Dantes) and Alejandro Calva (César Güemes), and executive producer Marcos Santana to discuss the relevancy of their show and what to expect in its much-anticipated third season. The panel will be conducted in both Spanish and English.
