Starring Alice Braga, Queen of the South is based on the bestselling book La Reina del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. It tells the story of Teresa Mendoza (Braga), a woman who is forced to run from the Mexican cartel and seek refuge in America.
Burnett’s Kelly Anne is the on-again, off-again member of Teresa’s drug operation. Kelly Anne’s journey has seen her killing her abusive husband, turning informant with a Houdini-like dodging of a cartel hit, and a fall into cocaine addiction. Kelly Ann was last seen in the end of Season 4 finding sobriety and her way back into the Teresa’s operations in New Orleans.
David T. Friendly serves as executive producer of the series alongside executive producers and co-showrunners Dailyn Rodriguez and Ben Lobato.
Burnett’s credits include recurring roles on CSI: Cyber, Relationship Status and True Blood. She is repped by A3 Artists Agency, Archetype, and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher.
