With Barroeta on the case, the bar for ensuring Hispanic content is a force to be reckoned with continues to rise. A production pioneer with more than two decades of industry experience, she launched the groundbreaking superseries “Malverde: El Santo Patron,” which traces the life journey of Mexico’s legendary folk hero and marks Telemundo’s first foray in the period drama genre. And in the midst of the pandemic, she wrapped production on two other buzzy series, “La Suerte de Loli” and “Buscando a Frida,” and co-produced the second season of “La Reina del Sur,” which has amassed an audience of more than 12.5 million viewers.
