The program is a co-production from Fox 21 Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions. It co-stars Verónica Falcón, Justina Machado, Peter Gadiot, Hemky Madera and Gerardo Taracena.

"Queen of the South tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. In the process, she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug-trafficking ring that has her on the run," the network said in press notes.
