Telemundo will premiere the new political-drama, Preso No. 1, on Tuesday, July 30, at 10pm/9c.

Led by Erik Hayser, together with Arturo Peniche - in his return to Telemundo after more than a decade - Alejandra Ambrosi, Mariana Seoane, Alejandro de la Madrid and Angélica Celaya, the original series also includes special appearances by Damián Alcázar, Roberto Sosa, Luis Felipe Tovar and Emilio Guerrero.

The political-drama centers around Carmelo Alvarado (Hayser,) a man of humble origins and firm values who, thanks to his charisma and intelligence, ends up becoming the president of Mexico. Carmelo is falsely accused of a millionaire fraud that leads to his incarceration, causing a media frenzy and an uproar in the country. However, Carmelo will not go down without fighting back against the corrupt system behind this scheme and clearing his name for the sake of his country and his family.

A Telemundo Global Studios production, Preso No. 1 was co-developed with Keshet International (creators of the hit series Prisoners of War upon which Homeland is based). The series was written by Luis Felipe Ybarra, directed by Pitipol Ybarra, Javier Patron Fox and Javier Solas, with Marcos Santana, Mariana Iskandarani and Marcel Ferrer as executive producers for Telemundo with Dror Mishani and Shira Hadad, Avi Nir, Karni Ziv and Kelly Wright as executive producers for Keshet International.
