Created by CHRIS BRANCATO, CARLO BERNARD, DOUG MIRO Starring WAGNER MOURA, BOYD HOLBROOK, PEDRO PASCAL (Netflix) September
Netflix has made an
impact with its original series including House Of Cards, Bloodline and Narcos, an ambitious drama based on the exploits of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar and the DEA agents on his trail. While leading man Wagner Moura describes the first season as an epic portrayal of the drugs trade, he says there’s a shift in tone for Season 2. “It’s more focused on the characters and how a guy like Pablo, that we are used to seeing so powerful in the first season, what is the breaking point of a guy like that?” says Moura. “So we’re going to see him in situations that we never saw him in – emotional situations. It’s basically about Pablo on the run, but not only focused on Pablo’s journey.” With 10 new episodes ready to go, it’s a crime series designed for binge viewing.
