Golden Globe nominee Sonia Braga (“Aquarius”) has signed on to star in the ABC detective drama series “Las Reinas”.
The story centers around Detective Sonya De La Reina, who is forced to confront her past when a case compels her to reconnect with her estranged family – the most powerful criminal outfit in Miami run by her fierce grandmother Gabriella (Braga).
Thrust back into the world she thought she had left behind, Sonya must walk the murky line between the law and her family and question her true destiny as a De La Reina.
Chris Brancato (“Hannibal,” “Narcos”) serves as showrunner with Liz Friedlander (“Conviction,” “Stalker”) set to direct the pilot. Dean Georgaris will pen the script for the pilot and executive produce alongside Mark Gordon and Nicholas Pepper.
