About the Show
"La Ley de Zapata" follows the small but powerful, and predominantly Mexican-American, Zapata County Sheriff’s Department, led by Sheriff Alonso López and Chief Deputy Raymundo Del Bosque. Their brave team of deputies puts their lives on the line every day to protect Zapata, a border town like no other in the state of Texas. Located 200 miles south of San Antonio, it's nicknamed the "gateway to the Rio Grande." With unprecedented access, each one-hour episode takes viewers on an up-close-and-personal journey alongside the team as they combat thieves and drug smugglers, reckless drivers and human traffickers. Crime never stops here, but these brave officers of the law are determined to fight for justice and keep their hometown safe.
