The highly-provocative dramatic series from Mexico about the country’s illegal drug trade, and the first Mexican series about drug legalization, Estado de Gracia (State of Grace), will make its world premiere on Monday, June 4, 2012, exclusively on Cinelatino in the U.S. Estado de Gracia is a political suspense thriller that presents a realistic portrait of the drug trafficking crisis in Mexico, shedding light on the network of money, power and corruption that fuels the ongoing drug trade. The 13-episode series set in Mexico City, centers on a local congresswoman who proposes a law to legalize drugs in an effort to dismantle the powerful drug cartels and end the narco-related violence. Facing powerful enemies, the congresswoman—played by esteemed Mexican actress Karina Gidi—watches all aspects of her life come apart after proposing this controversial legislation. “We knew we had to acquire this series right away. Drug violence is a reality in Mexico, and no other Mexican series has dared broach the topics of drug violence and legalization in such an honest and realistic way,” said Ricardo De León, director of Programming for Cinelatino. “Estado de Gracia is one of the best-written, most cutting edge series to come out of Mexico, and we’re proud to give our U.S. viewers access to it before it airs anywhere else in the world,” said Jim M. McNamara, chairman of Cinelatino. The series was directed by the highly-acclaimed, Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Carlos Bolado and features top quality production values and a strong cast of top Mexican talent, including Karina Gidi (Abel; Gitanas) and Daniel Martínez (Ella y el Candidato; El Infierno; Como No Te Voy a Querer), among others.
