Telemundo is set to premiere it's brand new telenovela "La Querida Del Centauro" in their "Super Series" time slot. As you know, this hour is reserved for highly action-packed stories that always keeps us at the edge of our seats like "El Señor De Los Cielos" and "Señora Acero." This new production follows the story of Yolanda (Ludwika Paleta), an attractive and intelligent recluse. While in jail, she becomes the mistress of one of Mexico’s most notorious drug traffickers, Benedictino García (Humberto Zurita), alias “El Centauro.”

Though this relationship gives Yolanda a lot of power while she is in prison, it becomes her worst nightmare once she is released thanks to the intervention of Gerardo (Michel Brown), a detective committed to the fight against drug trafficking. With El Centauro a fugitive, Gerardo decides to use Yolanda as bait in an operation to track down his hideout. Episode 1 airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT on Telemundo and these are 10 more reasons you must watch this new series:

1. Ludwika Paleta's Return: The last time we saw Ludwika Paleta it was in a guest-starring role at the beginning of "Abismo De Pasión," which was back in 2012. Before that she was in "Los Exitosos Pérez" that aired on MundoFOX and which she co-starred alongside Jaime Camil. This role is completely different from what we've seen of her in the past. She's tough, she's rude and she's bad ass and we can't wait to see her.

2. Humberto Zurita Stars: Just the presence of Zurita elevates the quality of any production. The seasoned actor knows his craft and completely submerges himself in every role that he portrays. He was ruthless in "La Reina Del Sur" and "Ladrón De Corazones" and now he will play a criminal that escapes from jail.

3. "El Chapo" Ties: Rumor has it that this series is loosely based on "El Chapo's" first escape. With his recent arrest all over the news, it is great timing.

4. Action-Packed: As you know, all of Telemundo's "Super Series" are always action-packed. They are fast-paced and something is always happening. We like this format as you feel like the story lines move along instead of just filler episode after episode.

5. New Producers: Although Telemundo has co-produced with Sony and Teleset before, this is the first time that they are all involved in a production completely shot in Mexico. New blood is always good to give a new take on story telling and provide a new vision.

6. Michel Brown: How did we forget to mention that the lovable Michel Brown is in this series? Remember him on "Pasión de Gavilanes" and "Amores De Mercado?" It was in 2007's "Madre Luna" that Brown made his last appearance on a Telemundo production and after so many years, he's finally back looking better than ever.

7. Irene Azuela Double Duty: She is a stellar actress and she has a special appearance in "La Querida Del Centauro." What's funny is that she is the leading lady of Univision's "El Hotel De Los Secretos," which will premiere 2 weeks later at the same time. It'll be fun to see how both of her characters compare.

8. Stellar Cast: The supporting cast is unbelievable and it includes: Andrea Marti ("Las Bravo"), Ricardo Polanco ("Club De Cuevos"), Vadhir Derbez ("Gossip Girl Acapulco"), Alexandra De La Mora ("La Patrona"), Rodolfo Blanco ("Capadocia"), Ignacio Guadalupe ("Mentir Para Vivir") and many more.

9. High Production Values: Another great thing about the "Super Series" format is that they are shot like if they were films. Production has been going on for months to take care of all the details. Everything is highly rehearsed and the quality audiences will see on tv is comparable to the best in the world.

10. New Franchise: With "La Querida Del Centauro" there are rumors that it can become a new franchise for Telemundo just like "El Señor De Los Cielos" and "Señora Acero." If audiences really find it interesting and compelling, we are sure this can go on for a couple of seasons. Let's just hope it's not another flop like "Camelia, La Texana" which was godawful-boring.

"La Querida Del Centauro" will air Monday through Friday at 10pm ET/PT on Telemundo. Will you be watching with us?
