Sold. Gotta call Verizon on the way home tonight and see if they can do anything about my internet connection.3. Narcos
Coming from Gaumont International Television, Narcos is a drama series that will chronicle the life and death of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. While there hasn’t been a ton of information on Narcos since it was announced in February 2013, there also hasn’t been any news that would suggest Netflix is planning to abandon the project.
Brazilian-born Jose Padilha, who is the director behind the upcoming RoboCop reboot for Sony (NYSE:SNE) and MGM, is set to oversee and direct the thirteen-episode first season, which is based on his idea. Also involved with Narcos are writers Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Sorcerer’s Apprentice), while Eric Newman (Children of Men) is serving as executive producer.
