Marking yet another addition to Netflix’s already impressive stable of compelling and original content, we bring you the trailer for Narcos. Set for release on August 28, Narcos chronicles the rise of notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the U.S. Government’s extensive efforts to bring his reign of terror to an end. At the height of his power, it’s been estimated that Escobar’s cartel was earning upwards of $60 million a day.
The trailer looks pretty cool and further underscores Netflix’s ongoing commitment towards delivering some of the best original programming on the market today.
Below is the trailer, in all its glory.
The show’s official description reads as follows:
“The Medellin cartel – the most violent, ruthless and wealthy criminal organization in the history of modern crime. And the one man who lorded over them all… Pablo Escobar.
NARCOS is the true story of the U.S. and Colombian efforts to battle the Medellin cartel during the cocaine-fueled drug wars of the 1980’s. Multi-layered and multi-faceted, NARCOS depicts a brutal world where lines are blurred and little is black and white. The Netflix original series, starring Wagner Moura, Boyd Holbrook, and Pedro Pascal, premieres August 28, 2015.”
