Streaming giant Netflix is set to team with Univision on the new drama series “El Chapo” based on the life story of the notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

The Univision Story House-produced series will be available to Netflix subscribers in the U.S. after its first airing on UniMas in 2017, and will premiere exclusively on Netflix around the rest of the world.

This is not to be confused with History’s “#Cartel” which is also in the works and based on the infamous drug lord who has made headlines for his prison escape and clandestine meetings with Sean Penn and actress Kate del Castillo.
