Cocaine was practically unknown in the United States in the early 1970s. By 1986, the drug had made such inroads into American society that the First Lady appeared on TV to tell everyone to "Just say no" to drugs. What happened in between? Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura), the richest criminal in history, whose hundreds of billions of dollars were almost entirely made building the cocaine trade in America. NARCOS chronicles just how that happened, outlining in intricate detail how Escobar and his compatriots in the Medellin Cartel turned a small smuggling business into a billion dollar operation. Meanwhile, intrepid DEA agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) stalks Escobar from afar. Escobar will be brought down, all right, as history tells us -- but it's going to take a lot more out of Murphy, U.S. law enforcement, and Escobar himself than anyone ever planned.
