Univision Story House announced that a series around the Mexican drug lord, aptly titled El Chapo, will make its highly-anticipated debut on Univision Network in April 2017. This is the first collaboration between Univision Story House and Netflix.

The announcement comes a few days after the extradition of El Chapo to the United States, where the Sinaloa cartel leader faces a 17-count indictment. 

"This series pulls back the curtain on one of the most capitvating criminals of our time by combining the world-class repoting and insights from Univision News' investigative team with an outstanding team of talented storytellers and producers," said Camila Jiménez Villa, Fusion Media Group President and Chief Content Officer said in a press release. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Netflix to share this boundary-breaking new series with a global audience."
