Noticias Telemundo to Air EN LA SOMBRA DEL NARCO, 5/26
Noticias Telemundo presents "En la Sombra del Narco," a special program airing on Telemundo Monday, May 26 at 7PM/6C and on mun2 Tuesday, May 27 at 8PM/7C. Led by "Noticiero Telemundo" anchors María Celeste Arrarás and José Díaz-Balart, the in-depth report explores the routes Mexican cartels use to transport illegal drugs from their points of origin to the streets of US cities and suburbs.
Telemundo will present an exclusive interview with Juan Diego Espinoza, alias "El Tigre," a drug trafficker linked to Arturo Beltrán Leyva and romantically involved with the "Queen of the Pacific." The network's reporters gained privileged access to the seedy underworlds of Reynosa, Torreón in Mexico and cities in the United States to reveal the scope of the cartels' operations, the tactics and strategies law enforcement authorities have developed in response, and the effects of organized crime on ordinary citizens' lives.
"En la Sombra del Narco" was produced with the participation of the Noticias Telemundo team on both sides of the border. The special report offers an in-depth investigation into the current state of the illegal drug business, explores the phenomenon of the popular "narco-novela" genre, and analyzes how fiction compares to the reality of the problem of drug trafficking. "En la Sombra del Narco" also presents a behind-the-scenes look at the new Telemundo production "El Señor de los Cielos 2," including an interview with superstar Rafael Amaya.
