Networks have been increasing their efforts for accurate representation, meaningful storytelling and the tackling of modern social issues. Univision is no exception. One of my first published pieces on MediaVillage back in 2017 was a review for Univision’s La Doble Vida de Estela Carrillo, which tackled immigration, racism and gun violence, with its opening scene depicting a hate and bigotry-motivated shooting at a community center for Hispanic youths, which, now more than ever, resonates with audiences across the country. Other Univision series have gone on to tackle female empowerment and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements in La Bella Y Las Bestias, and LGBTQ+ representation in Mi Marido Tiene Familia and its history-making spin-off El Corazón Nunca Se Equivoca. Telecast Monday-Friday, the network’s latest drama, Sin Miedo a La Verdad (No Fear of Truth), follows the same tradition of tackling social issues in the network’s new procedural.
