"Paquita la del barrio” is a series inspired by the life and career of legendary Mexican singer, Francisca “Paquita” Viveros. The audience meets Paquita as a girl and witnesses her struggle to overcome poverty and countless failures and disappointments, until she finally achieves fame and success as a beloved songstress. Viewers will be captivated by the 70 episodes that tell her story and feature many of her hit “rancheras”.
Paquita is a strong, honest woman with a great sense of humor who has a love-hate relationship with men. She has been the victim of lying, cheating, impotent, spineless, cradle-rocking, swindling, and lazy men.
People she considered friends and family have also disappointed her at one point or another. Paquita consistently manages to overcome adversity; she is a survivor.
