“As a true crime fan, I was immediately captivated when I heard the story surrounding the homicide of Juan Guerrero Chapa. Not only did it take place close to my hometown in Texas, but it was also a story unlike anything I’ve ever heard,” Selena said in a press release. “I am excited to partner with Univision and really pull back the layers of his double life.”
Mi Vecino, El Cartel, as well as Univision’s global streaming platform, is set to launch in 2022.
