History may have put in development the story of notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, without Kate del Castillo or Sean Penn, from Narcos co-creator co-creator Chris Brancato. But Fox News Channel boasted this afternoon it has Castillo, for a one-hour special airing this coming Saturday. Fox News Reporting: Beauty & the Beast – When Kate met Chapo will be hosted by Geraldo Rivera, who sits down with Mexican actress to discuss her relationship with Joaquin Guzman, better known as the head of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, “El Chapo.”
She goes in-depth on how the two became pen-pals in addition to the secret meeting they later had with Penn. Also during this special, Rivera reports on Chapo’s pending extradition to the United States, the drug lord’s fascination with Donald Trump, the role the Mexican government has played, as well as the potential impact his incarceration will have on the drug epidemic in the United States. Rivera also talks with former assistant special agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Special Operations Division for the Americas, Carl Pike. Saturday’s 8 PM ET/PT special will be repeated Sunday at 9 PM ET/PT.
