Netflix Announces Date And Releases First Look at ‘Narcos’
Netflix has announced that its much anticipated original series, Narcos, will premiere on Friday August 28th, exclusively for its subscribers around the world.
The streaming service accompanied the date announcement with a chilling teaser trailer and first look imagery, which can be seen and watched below.
Created and executive produced by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop), 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 a brutal, bloody conflict.
The drama details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine.
Acclaimed Brazilian actor Wanger Moura (Elite Squad, Elysium) plays the infamous Pablo Escobar, alongside Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as the real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena.
All ten episodes of Narcos will premiere on Friday, August 28th.
