Apple TV+ has announced the series order for new Spanish-language crime drama series called “Las Azules” from International Emmy Award winner Fernando Rovzar and starring Bárbara Mori and an entirely Hispanic cast and crew.

The journey of Mexico’s first female police officer is coming to Apple TV+
Situated in the 1970s, “Las Azules” plot revolves around Maria (played Bárbara Mori), a housewife who finally hears her calling and joins the Mexican police forces. Although hired as a distraction to reduce public pressure for not containing rampant serial murders, Maria teams with three other passionate female officers to capture the horrendous serial killer.
Set in 1970 and inspired by true events, “Las Azules” tells the story of four women who defy the ultra-conservative norms of the time and join Mexico’s first female police force, only to discover that their squad is a publicity stunt to distract the media from a brutal serial killer.
As the body count grows, María, whose determination to catch the killer becomes an obsession, Gabina, an aspiring officer, Ángeles, 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.
It will join other foreign language titles on Apple TV+ like Korean Pachinko, “Tehran” and Dr. Brain, and the upcoming Spanish-language thriller “Now & Then,” which will debut on May 20.
