Before filming began, Marcos Santana, president of NBC Universal Telemundo Global Studios and showrunner of “La reina del sur” sent his thanks for the Peruvian hospitality to the project and the team.
“NBC Universal Telemundo Global Studios, with the participation of Tondero as a local producer, wants to convey its gratitude to the Peruvian people for making us feel at home, for their hospitality and warmth,” he said.
“It has been a great experience for the entire production team to record in one of the most beautiful places in the world such as Cusco, as well as cosmopolitan Lima,” he added.
Santana stressed that “producing this series requires a complex production plan, which implies a tight schedule to achieve said filming plan on time, saving uncontrollable factors such as the weather and the situation of the pandemic.”
“In the production team, between cast and technicians, we have more than a hundred people who permanently comply with the sanitary control and everything that the biosafety protocol implies. Afterwards to Peru, we will be filming in other countries, so that we must be extremely careful with the health of our protagonist, actors and technical and production team, as well as taking care of all local participants and the general public, “he commented.
