Netflix announced this week it’s new series “Narcos” based on the life of Pablo Escobar
This new series will be directed by Brazilian director Jose Padhilla (recently did Robocop), and promises to be something completely different that has been done before about Escobar. So far Netflix has ordered one season of 10 episodes and is supposed to debut on 2015.
The life of Pablo Escobar and his involvement in the Cocaine Business in the 80’s and 90’s is still being used for TV and Film projects even 20 years after his death. Last Year John Leguizamo played the role of Escobar in the movie “The King of Cocaine”. This film still has no official release date. “Paradise Lost” is another movie that will come out this year about Pablo Escobar and will be played by Benicio Del Toro. Last year “El Patron Del Mal” was a huge success in Colombia and Latin America, it was a soap opera and despite some initial controversy ended up being a huge success. It was aired in the US by Telemundo.

For some reason the life of Escobar fascinates lots of people. There is something that attracts viewers to the “Bandido” way of life. All recent projects about Pablo Escobar and the Drug World have been a financial Success.
Pablo Escobar was killed in December 1993 by the Colombian military. And it is said that the war between Colombia and the Medellin Cartel cost at least 4000 individual lives.
