The upcoming new original Pantaya series Señorita 89 will explore the dark nature behind beauty pageants in which women are essentially manufactured to win the crown. Produced by SPENCER director Pablo Larrain and Juan de Diol Larrain, the new trailer presents a sinister tale set around the 1989’s Miss Mexico beauty pageant.
The first two episodes of Señorita 89 will premiere exclusively through the Spanish streaming service Pantaya on February 27th in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Señorita is a sophisticated dramatic thriller from visionary Lucia Puenzo (La Jauria) is set in the glamour of 80's Mexico.
