Netflix Sets Premiere Date For Mexican TV Series ‘INGOBERNABLE’
Netflix has announced that the first season of its Mexican original series INGOBERNABLE starring Kate Del Castillo and Erik Hayser as the First Lady and President of Mexico, will premiere on March 24 at 12:01AM CT.
Del Castillo, a key player in the real-life saga of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, stars as First Lady Emilia Urquiza, a woman who has big plans to improve conditions for the country through her commitment to fighting for peace. She is a woman with a strong personality, conviction and clear ideas that make her capable of doing anything. As Emilia starts to lose faith in her husband, President Diego Nava, she finds herself at a crossroad where she will need to find a way to deal with a great challenge and uncover the truth. The presidential couple will be joined by their two children Maria Nava Urquiza (Alicia Jaziz) and Emiliano Nava Urquiza (Alessio Valentini).
Also starring Erendira Ibarra, Luis Roberto Guzmán, Fernando Luján, Marina de Tavira, Marco Antonio Treviño, María del Carmen Farías, Aida López, Alberto Guerra Ramos, Harold Torres, Maxi Iglesias, Alvaro Guerrero, Diego Cadavid, Tamara Mazarrasa Lopez, Marianna Burelli, Hernan del Riego, Jeirmarie Osorio Rivera, Mitzi Mabel Cadena, and Pablo Astiazarán.
The series was originally set to shoot in Mexico, but those plans changed and production moved to the US. Del Castillo also told ABC News that last year she was afraid to go to Mexico for fear of being arrested and prosecuted after she had come under scrutiny from the Mexican government over her connection to notorious Mexican drug lord El Chapo, which led to her and actor Sean Penn’s infamous secret meeting with El Chapo while he was on the run following his escape from a Mexican prison. However, El Chapo was re-captured and extradited to the US on January 2017 to face charges connected to leading one of the world’s most largest narcotics organizations.
