This week on The Little Radio Show we talk about the new USA network’s show “Queen of the South.” It’s an American adaptation of the internationally-renowned Spanish-language telenovela “La Reina del Sur,” which was produced by Telemundo and starred Kate del Castillo. It’s also based on the book that started it all, authored by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
The USA version will star Alice Braga as Teresa Mendoza. Supporting cast includes Justina Machado, Peter Gadiot, Hemky Madera, and Gerardo Taracena. Here’s a trailer for your enjoyment.
Of course, it wouldn’t be “The Little Radio Show” if we didn’t veer off topic a little. This week we discuss the status of Latinos in entertainment and why we don’t see enough roles for and by Latinos on TV and Film.
