A new Apple TV+ crime drama called “Las Azules” will take place in 1970 Mexico with an all-Hispanic cast and crew, starring Barbara Mori.
The new show is a 10-episode series based on true stories of Mexico’s first female police force. Ariel Award nominee Barbara Mori stars as Maria, a devoted wife who discovers her true calling when she joins the first female police force, and her entire belief system comes crashing down.
“Las Azules” is in pre-production so a release window hasn’t been provided for the series. It is created by International Emmy Award-winning Fernando Rovzar and Pablo Aramendi. Emmy Award nominee Wendy Riss, Erica Sanchez Su, and International Emmy Award winner Billy Rovzar are executive producers.
The story follows four women on the police force who discover their squad is a publicity stunt to distract the media from a brutal serial killer. Maria, whose determination to catch the killer becomes an obsession, Gabina, an aspiring officer, Angeles, a brilliant fingerprint analyst, and Valentina, a young rebel, set up a secret investigation to achieve what no other male officer has been able to do and bring the serial killer to justice.
