TelevisaUnivision confirmed the exclusive launch of “Mujeres Asesinas” on ViX+, its new global subscription-based premium streaming service (SVOD) set to launch in July. Yalitza Aparicio, nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in 2019, will join renowned actresses to star in an episode of the psychological drama that began filming this month. “The new generations and fans of ‘Mujeres Asesinas’ will be able to enjoy a new version of this popular franchise. With a bold approach, the series tells each story from the point of view of those who lived through extreme situations that led them to commit murder,” said Vincenzo Gratteri, Senior Vice President of Development at ViX+. “We have top talent both in front of and behind the cameras who together have created a new take on the anthology that broke barriers and delighted audiences internationally.”

 "Mujeres Asesinas" is a production of Plétora Productions. The series will be directed by Pepe Castro, Carlos García Agraz, and Ana Lorena Pérez-Ríos under the executive production of Francisco Casasús, Rafael Cuadros, and Luis Luisillo Miguel. Written by renowned Spanish writer Alicia Luna, ViX+ presents eight original Mexican stories inspired by Marissa Grinstein's book "Mujeres Asesinas." The award-winning anthology that became one of the most popular series on Mexican television returns with fresh stories, a stellar cast, and prominent writers and directors. 

With stories inspired by real life, the protagonists of this series did not have simple, peaceful, or happy lives. They dealt with violent partners, manipulative fathers or mothers, hostile bosses, and humiliating situations. All of them tried to improve their lives and failed. Without the resources or psychological help, they reached the limit of their strength in tragic situations from which there was no way to escape and when jail or death was less terrifying than continuing to endure.

As part of the recently launched ViX, the first large-scale streaming service created specifically for the Spanish-speaking world, ViX+ will offer more than 10,000 hours of premium content, including more than 50 ViX+ Originals series and movies during in its first year. ViX is available for free on Apple iOS and tvOS, Android mobile devices and Android TV OS, Amazon Fire TV, Roku devices, Samsung smart TVs and online at vix.com.
