Drug baron drama

The TV Guide - - DIg­i­tal Watch -

El Chapo is a new drama based on the life of ruth­less Mex­i­can drug baron Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guz­man. It stars Marco de la O (left) as the lead

and the story be­gins in the mid-80s when a young El Chapo is work­ing for a car­tel and must trans­port il­le­gal goods for Columbian drug lord Pablo Es­co­bar via a tun­nel be­tween Mex­ico and the US. The se­ries looks at how El Chapo made friends and en­e­mies, cre­ated his for­tune and man­aged to es­cape from

prison a cou­ple of times. For the record he is still alive but be­hind bars. The se­ries, which is in Span­ish with English sub­ti­tles, isn’t quite as good as Nar­cos, the Net­flix drama about Es­co­bar, but the moral of the story is more or less the same – crime does not pay. Streams on Net­flix.
