Soon after the successful release of Historias y testigos: Ã‚Â¡Ni una muerta mas! in the United States, the Mexican TV network Azteca started pre-production for a similar product which was later entitled "Tan Infinito como el Desierto" (As Infinite as the Desert). While critically acclaimed, "Historias y testigos: Ã‚Â¡Ni una muerta mas!" was appreciated for being an accurate dramatization based on real facts but with fictional characters, while TV Aztecas star-filled "Tan Infinito como el Desierto" was severely accused by Juarez government for infaming the city of Juarez, since the teleplay was supposedly based on poor and false research and included the names of real-life people.
