Women in Blue is inspired by true stories of Mexico's first female police force. The show is set in 1971 and centers on four women who join the force, only to discover their squad is a publicity stunt to distract the media from a brutal serial killer.

"As the body count grows, María (Mori), whose determination to catch the killer becomes an obsession, Gabina (Amorita Rasgado), whose father is a renowned cop, Ángeles (Ximena Sariñana), a brilliant fingerprint analyst, and Valentina (Natalia Téllez), a young rebel, set up a secret investigation to achieve what no male officer has been able to do and bring the serial killer to justice," an official synopsis reads.

The all-Hispanic cast also includes Miguel Rodarte, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Christian Tappán and Horacio García Rojas.

Women in Blue is created by Fernando Rovzar and Pablo Aramendi, with Rovzar, Wendy Riss, Erica Sánchez Su, Sandra Solares and Billy Rovzar as executive producers.
