Univision today announced the launch of a weekly “El Chapo” aftershow, “El Chapo Ilimitado” (El Chapo Unlimited), with AT&T serving as the presenting sponsor. Univision’s first live after-show will serve as a forum for fans to discuss new episodes of Univision’s boundary-breaking original series “El Chapo,” which explores the life story of one of the world’s most notorious criminals: Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán. “El Chapo Ilimitado,” hosted by beloved Univision personalities Lourdes Stephen and Carlos Calderón, will be streamed via Facebook Live on Univision’s Facebook page Sunday evenings at 10 p.m. immediately following the premiere of new episodes.
Each week, the 20-minute Facebook Live after-show will recap and dissect some of the most talked about moments of the episode and get fan reaction. Viewers will have the chance to learn about the making of the series through interviews with the show’s producers, directors, and actors as well as through special behind-the-scenes footage. Additionally, each week “El Chapo Ilimitado” will give viewers an exclusive first-look at the following week’s episode. Watch the exclusive extended trailer here.
