UniMás Network is to premiere the series Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán: El Varón de la Droga this autumn.

Univision's new drama series is based on the life of one of the world’s most powerful drug dealers, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, who has already been captured three times and whose escape from a maximum security prison in Mexico six months ago became news worldwide.

Written by Andrés López López, a former Colombian drug-dealer and writer of blockbusters like El Cartel de los Sapos and El Señor de los Cielos, the new series will show audiences a different and unofficial view of the inner workings and politics of the drug trafficking world.

“The Chapo Guzmán story has been one of the most captivating stories this past year and we are thrilled to bring an inside look into his world to our audiences,” said Alberto Ciurana, president, programming and content, Univision Communications Inc. “Our team has been hard at work the past several months developing a story that takes our audiences deep inside the world of one of the most feared outlaws of all time.”
