After nearly six months since launching an action-packed promo trailer, "Queen Of The South," starring Brazilian actress Alice Braga as Teresa Mendoza, is just around the corner! The highly anticipated English-language version of "La Reina del Sur" will make its debut at 10 p.m. ET on June 23rd in USA Network with 13 episodes in its first season.

"It's a great story," said Veronica Falcon to Latin Times, who portrays Camila Vargas in the show. "As every great story, it's filled with great characters. It's a story people would love to watch because of that," she said. The 49-year-old Mexican actress, best known for her work in "El Señor de los Cielos," said that the series touches many universal topics, such as love, hatred, revenge, power and corruption, but at the same time it has honor, loyalty, friendship and action.

SYNOPSIS: "Queen of the South" tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico.  In the process, she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run.  

Starring Alice Braga (“City of God”) as Teresa, the original drama series is based on the global best-selling novel “La Reina Del Sur,” by internationally-acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. The literary page-turner also yielded one of the most popular super series of all time for USA’s sister network, Telemundo.
