Pablo Escobar Trailer: “Escobar, El Patrón del Mal”

Pablo Escobar's family grave in Itagui

Tonight at 9 PM on Canal Caracol, a new TV series entitled “Escobar, El Patrón del Mal” begins.

The series will chronicle the life of Pablo Escobar, as adapted from the book, “La Parábola de Pablo” by Alonso Salazar, former Mayor of Medellin, Colombia.

Given Escobar’s penchant for drugs, money, sex, and violence, this should be one heck of a series. And I can’t imagine Hollywood could create a more authentic adaptation.

According to show notes, the series features 1,300 actors, and was filmed in 450 locations, including:  Medellin, Bogota, the Atlantic Coast, and Miami.

Would you watch the show if it were available in English subtitles?
