Directed by Alejandro Bazzano, No te Puedes Esconder follows Monica (Blanca Soto), and her daughter Natalia (Samantha Siqueiros), as they flee Mexico to escape from their past, an abusive husband and a criminal network. After establishing new identities in Madrid under the U.S. Federal Witness Protection Program, they begin to rebuild their lives. Here, they will encounter a former policeman turned hitman, a photographer obsessed with death and a politician with forbidden relationships. All of them, unknowingly, are united by half-truths, which will expose their darker side as they cross paths, ultimately compromising their lives.
“When I first read the script, I was fascinated with the storyline, which is the real star of this series… I couldn’t stop reading, and was amazed to learn about the cast from Spain and México,” stated Blanca Soto. “The opportunity to play Monica, a strong resilient woman capable of doing the impossible for her family, is what I like most as an actress and as a human being. We need to show dark moments to see the transformation and beauty in it all. The aspirational aspect is the most important element audiences will relate to.”

“No te Puedes Esconder is a fantastic thriller that is going to captivate audiences, not just because of its high-quality production standards, but because of its stellar cast featuring some of the most talented actors today,” said Marcos Santana, President of Telemundo Global Studios. “We are delighted to have Blanca back on Telemundo and are proud to offer such an impactful and relevant limited series as we continue to set a new standard in Spanish-language story-telling.”
