"There's great expectations with this new tele-series. We've been able to combine a great story with an exceptional cast and an impeccable direction," emphasized Juan Carlos Sosa, EVP of Operations of Venevision Studios. The executive producer of Ruta 35, Cristina Palacio, expressed the same confidence in the success of the project: "My experience in producing tele-series along with Venevision Studios' know-how and modern production facilities in Miami is a valuable combination that surely will be reflected on screen for audiences to appreciate." Alberto Ciurana, president of Programming and Content for Univision Communications, Inc., added: "We are pleased to once again work with our partners at Venevision Productions on this great production. With an internationally renowned cast, state of the art technology and under the direction of celebrated producer Cristina Palacio, we will continue to deliver the best alternative programming in the U.S. to our audience." The production will feature three distinct production units that will operate simultaneously to develop this tele-series, which will be produced mostly on-location, in other words, the majority of scenes will be filmed throughout the city of Miami and its surrounding areas. Ruta 35, La Válvula de Escape is narrated by Dylan Wilkins (Zeus Mendoza), an American federal agent of ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement), who has worked with a number of informants throughout his 20-year career, and always ended up getting involved in their lives. Throughout this tele-series, viewers will see how these stories are related and interact in the complexity of this 'escape route.' The informants' lives, as well of life of the main character, drastically change over the years.
