Drug baron drama
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.
