Netflix will showcase a biographical account of Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and her infamous meeting with most wanted drug lord Joaquín – El Chapo – Guzmán on October 20. This three-part series will tell Kate’s side of the story with the help of never-seen-before footage.
The series is produced by 25/7 Productions and Kate del Castillo Productions. The executive producers include David Broome, Yong Yam and Kate. The director of the series is Carlos Armella.
Kate had propositioned to meet EL Chapo on Twitter. Eventually, the drug lord was interviewed by Kate and actor Sean Penn. This association led Kate to be investigated for possibly receiving illicit funds from the drug czar after the interview, and she got a “detain and interrogate” from Mexican authorities.
