"Narcos" (TV show) is an original drama series on Netflix that reunites the creators of the ultimate Brazilian cop action and political film, "Elite Squad": Brazil's top film star Wagner Moura ("Elysium") and acclaimed director José Padilha ("Robocop").

With Moura bringing back to life the charismatic trafficker and politician Pablo Escobar, the series is an all-new take on the amazing story of the Medellin Cartel, once the world's most ambitious and violent trafficking organization.

The series chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces — legal, political, police, military and civilian — that clash in an effort to control the world's most powerful commodity: cocaine.

The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook ("Gone Girl") and Pedro Pascal ("Game of Thrones") as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, 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"), Colombian actor Manolo Cardona ("Covert Affairs"), Brazil's renowned André Mattos ("Elite Squad"), beloved Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzmán ("Boogie Nights") and the stunning Ana de la Reguera ("Eastbound & Down," "Nacho Libre") from Mexico.

"Narcos" is produced by Gaumont International Television and is executive produced by Padilha, Eric Newman ("Children of Men"), the team of Doug Miro and Carlos Bernard ("Sorcerer's Apprentice"), and Chris Brancato ("Hannibal").
