“Imagine you were born in a poor family in a poor country, and by the time you were 28 years old you have so much money you can’t even count it.” And so begins the first full trailer for the Netflix drama series Narcos, which chronicles the true stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the efforts of law enforcement to meet them head-on.
The series reunites Elite Squad director-producer José Padilha with actor Wagner Moura. Padilha created and exec produces Narcos and Wagner stars as Pablo Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. Cast also features Juan Pablo Raba, Joanna Christie, Stephanie Sigman, Manolo Cardona, André Mattos, Luis Guzman and Ana de la Reguera.
Eric Newman, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard and Chris Brancato also serve as exec producers. Narcos is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix. Check out the trailer above.
