Pablo Escobar’s brother submits formal request to Netflix to review new series of Narcos
Pablo Escobar’s brother, Roberto, has submitted a “formal, friendly request” to Netflix to review the second season of Narcos before it is released in September.
The critically acclaimed series depicts the late drug lord (played by Wagner Moura) at the height of his criminal activity as well as the authorities’ attempts to capture him.
The year that the first series was broadcast, Roberto registered successor-in-interest rights to Pablo and the Escobar family name in California. It is clear that the family name is beyond important to the Escobars and Roberto is attempting to protect that with this new query to Netflix.
Roberto’s letter, obtained by website TMZ, requests that the series is not shown without Roberto having the “rightful opportunity to review the material.” Roberto goes on to say that the first season of Narcos was full of “mistakes, lies and discrepancies”; he also hopes Netflix is not profiting from the show and that they should share the profits if so.
Netflix are yet to comment on the letter but as the second season of the show is set to air on 2nd September, they’d better get a move on if they don’t want to incur the wrath of the Escobar dynasty.
