The life of the Mexican drug kingpin is being brought to television screens in a drama co-produced by Netflix and Univision.

While the real Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is locked up in a cold, tiny cell in New York, his career as a drug lord apparently over, his fictional counterpart is free and in top form in Colombia, where the Univision network and Netflix are filming a television series about his life.

These beautiful women are drug cartels’ favorite killers

MEXICO CITY – When the body of Joselyn Niño was discovered hacked to pieces and crammed into an ice cooler on the U.S.-Mexico border in 2015, the ongoing war between the drug cartels’ most secretive and efficient killers took a turn for the worse.
