Netflix’s new dramatic series Narcos will debut on August 28, 2015 at 12:01am PT with all 10 episodes available at that time for binge-watching. The streaming service revealed the release date with a 15 second teaser featuring the show’s tagline: “There’s No Business Like Blow Business.”

Narcos was created by José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) who also executive produces along with Chris Brancato (Hannibal), Eric Newman (Children of Men), Doug Miro, and Carlos Bernard.

The Plot: Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine.

Brazilian actor Wagner Moura (Elite Squad, Elysium) is Pablo Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. The series also features Juan Pablo Raba, Joanna Christie, Stephanie Sigman, Manolo Cardona, André Mattos, Luis Guzman, and Ana de la Reguera.
