Ingobernable is a Mexican political drama streaming television series starring Kate del Castillo that premiered on Netflix on 24 March 2017.[2][3] Del Castillo plays the fictional First Lady of Mexico, Emilia Urquiza, and Erik Hayser plays the fictional President of Mexico, Diego Nava. The presidential couple push for internal peace in their country, but this is made difficult as unforeseen challenges emerge, and a major scandal begins to develop. Alicia Jaziz, Alessio Valentini Padilla, Erendira Ibarra, and Álvaro Guerrero round out the cast playing the couple's daughter and son, the president's chief of staff, and the Secretary of the Interior, respectively.[4] Netflix renewed the series for a second season, which became available on its streaming service on 14 September 2018.[5]


The plot revolves around the murder of Mexico's president, Diego Nava Martinez (Erik Hayser). On the night of his death, he attacks his wife, Emilia Urquiza (Kate del Castillo), in an abusive rage. The two struggle, and Emilia is eventually knocked unconscious. She wakes up to find that Diego is dead, his bloody body cast off the balcony of their hotel room. A gun she aimed at him in the midst of their encounter is in her hand, even though she had left it in the bedroom. This leads her to believe that someone else came into the room to kill Diego, then set her up to take the fall. So, she flees from the police.
