Netflix’s newest drama series Narcos, starring Game Of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal, will debut globally on Friday August 28th, the streaming giant announced today.
Created by José Padilha, Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine. The drama series is produced by Gaumont International Television and stars Wagner Moura, Boyd Holbrook, Pedro Pascal, Juan Pablo Raba, Joanna Christie, Stephanie Sigman, Manolo Cardona, André Mattos, Luis Guzman, Ana de la Reguera.
Speaking at the time that Narcos was first picked up straight-to-series back in April 2014, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said: “Jose and Wagner together created one of the most sophisticated and chilling portraits of criminality and official corruption ever in their Elite Squad movies. Their version of the Escobar saga will be like nothing ever seen before.”
