"La piloto" is a Mexican telenovela created written by Jorg Hiller and Maria Cecilia Boenheim for Televisa. It's an original story and it started airing on American cable channel Univision on March 7, 2017. The main stars are Livia Brito and Juan Colucho. The show was renewed for a second season that started airing on June 8, 2018.
"La Piloto" tells the story of Yolanda, who achieves her lifelong dream of flying planes but winds up transporting drugs across Mexico, Colombia and Central America. John Lucio, her boyfriend and former flight instructor, betrays her to avoid going to prison. This fuels Yolanda’s thirst for revenge and, ultimately, motivates her to seek control of the drug-trafficking business.
Due to medical reasons, actress Macarena Achaga wasn't available for the second season of the telenovela. Her character was recast with actress Oka Giner.
