Escobar’s Brother Asks To Review “Narcos”

Pablo Escobar’s brother has asked Netflix to allow him to review the second season of the drug war drama “Narcos,” before its release in September. The critically acclaimed series depicts the rise and fall of the late drug lord (played by Wagner Moura), as well as the efforts made by law enforcement officials to take him down. It was nominated for two Golden Globes, including best drama series. Netflix was initially supposed to debut the second season of Narcos in August but it has since been pushed back to September. On Tuesday, Pablo’s brother, Roberto, submitted what he called a “formal, friendly request” to view the second season, “solely on an informational basis”, per a statement released by Escobar Inc, a private holding company founded by Roberto, Olof K Gustafsson and Daniel D Reitberg.

“It is depicting me, my life, my family and my brother,” the statement read. “I think nobody else in the world is alive to determine the validity of the materials, but me.”

In 2015, the year Narcos premiered on Netflix, Roberto, through Escobar Inc, registered successor-in-interest rights to Pablo and the Escobar family name in California.
