Some news- So excited about this next chapter as the Chief White House Correspondent for @ABC. I may be the first Latina for an English language network to hold this title, but mark my words, I wont be the last. ❤️

Go Cecilia! So well deserved. @ABC is lucky to have you. Congrats, my friend.

@MarianaVZ To be clear, that gun is a tribute to Che, right? I hope nobody's trying to claim it belonged to him. Anyone can create a trophy.

Haha. Yes. Def not Che’s gun. You see many of these throughout Latin America.

@MarianaVZ was there a time you thought you weren’t going to make it out of a certain situation alive to tell your story?

Mmm lots of sketchy moments for sure. But none that made me think it was all over. It’s key to stay calm and positive at all times. Seriously makes all the difference.

Of all the gangsters that have been on #TraffickedwithMarianavanZeller, @MarianaVZ is the MOST gangster of all! #nervesofsteel

Ha! And probably the only one who thinks Phil Collins is the king.

@MarianaVZ In today’s media environment where we question everything we see, good question, but if you have followed @MarianaVZ career, you would know that she’s legit. She’s the one of the last truth telling reporters we have on American TV if not one of the best of all time.

Appreciate ur comment. But know there are incredible journalists around who risk way more. Many of whom I’ve had privilege of working w/. Especially now when media being attacked at home and journos killed abroad. Would add that local journos are the unsung heroes of our industry

@Explain_Podcast @MarianaVZ @hulu I apologize if this has been asked and answered but have there been situations where something changed at the last second which made it too dangerous and your team had to bail? Absolutely love the show!

Mos def :-) Many.

@MarianaVZ Anyone give you trouble for all those drone shots? Flying one near the US-Mexico border seems like you'd need permission. Any chance of a behind the scenes episode or directors commentary style podcast? Can't wait for season two.

No trouble but many areas where we can’t fly drone. And we didn’t.

@MarianaVZ It is a good show and educational but I can’t help but feel a lot of it is staged.

It would certainly make our lives much easier. But thankfully it is not. We spend months, sometimes even years gaining access to these worlds. Plus, I have the best team. Tenacity, determination and a sense of purpose can lead you a long, long way.

@MarianaVZ ¡Me quito el sombrero ante ti, eres excelente y muy valiente para inmiscuirte entre tanta gente "mala" del narcotráfico!

Muchas gracias 🎩

@MarianaVZ i just have to say I have absolutely loved watching your show on Nat Geo. You are the bravest woman. I spend almost the whole show afraid for you. I also appreciate your kindness and down to earthness you have. Keep up with amazing work you do. Thanks for all you do!!!

Thank you so much 😊

@MarianaVZ But you’re not away from home the entire time? You go back & forth?

That time includes pre production and post production. Which is why we’re able to work on several episodes at the same time. 😁

@MarianaVZ You are SO BRAVE! The stuff that you do is SO dangerous! I love watching Trafficked and look forward to the second season.

Please take extra care and stay extra safe!

Much love! You're the GOAT!

Question: How long does it take to film a typical episode?

Each episode takes about 5 to 6 months from start to finish.

@MarianaVZ how do you get so many drone shots? Like when parking to meet blonde? Or getting on a boat to meet the gun runners? It seems like a drone would freak people out.

Some are done after the meetings
