Netflix has released the first full trailer for its new original series, Narcos.
The show, which is released next month, chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the infamous drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict.
Its gritty storytelling details the many, often-conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world’s most valuable commodities.
Wagner Moura (Elite Squad) stars as Pablo Escobar, alongside Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. The series also features performances by Colombia’s Juan Pablo Raba (El corazón del océano), British theater star Joanna Christie (Once), Mexican sensation Stephanie Sigman (also seen later this year in the next Bond installment, Spectre), and beloved Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights).
The series marks the reunion of Moura with Elite Squad’s José Padilha, who created the show and will serve as an Executive Producer alongside Eric Newman (Children of Men), Doug Miro and Carlos Bernard (Sorcerer’s Apprentice) and Chris Brancato (Hannibal).
All 10 episodes of Narcos will premiere at 8.01am on Friday 28th August in all Netflix territories.
