Fernando Rovzar Preps New Apple TV+ Crime Drama


Apple TV+ has ordered the new Spanish-language crime drama Las Azules, based on the true stories of Mexico’s first female police force.

The series comes from International Emmy Award-winning showrunner and director Fernando Rovzar (Monarca, Sr. Ávila) and Pablo Aramendi (José José, Tijuana, Los Elegidos). Emmy Award nominee Wendy Riss (Yellowstone, Genius, The Killing), Erica Sanchez Su (Monarca, La Venganza de Las Juanas, Paramédicos) and International Emmy Award winner Billy Rovzar (Monarca, Control Z, Sr. Ávila) serve as executive producers.

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. 

The series, currently in preproduction in Mexico City, will feature an entirely Hispanic cast and crew, led by Ariel Award nominee Bárbara Mori (La Negociadora, El Complot Mongol, La Mujer De Mi Hermano).
