"Narcos" Gets A Third Set Of Showrunners

24 December 2015 6:18 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jose Padilha and Eric Newman are set to take over as showrunners on the second season of Netflix's Pablo Escobar drug empire series "Narcos".

This marks the third change of showrunners for the series. Chris Brancato and then Adam Fierro served in that capacity during the first season. Brancato left before the series debut due to a deal which has seen him take over ABC's upcoming biblical drama "Of Kings and Prophets".

Wagner Moura stars in "Narcos" which traces the story of the Medellin Cartel, once the world's most ambitious and violent trafficking organization. Season Two will screen sometime next year.

Narcos Showrunner Steps Down; Will He Lose His Free Netflix Subscription?

23 December 2015 1:13 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Narcos showrunner Adam Fierro stepped down after apparently completing his contractual requirements for season two of the show. He had replaced season-one showrunner Chris Brancato, who departed earlier this year. Is there something in the Narcos production office bottled water? Or are these guys all leaving to follow their true dream of being drug kingpins? A The Shield and The Walking Dead alum, Fierro was initially hired because Netflix wanted the show to take a new creative direction in season two. Guess there will be a third creative direction! Here's to hoping it's just as great. Narcos recently landed two Golden Globes nominations, for best drama series and for best actor, Wagner Moura. »

Netflix Renews 'Narcos' For Season 2

3 September 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While critics have mostly been kind to Netflix's "Narcos," our own Erik McClanahan was far less enthused in the series. In particular, he had issues with the Pov of the narrative, which tells the story of Pablo Escobar through the eyes of a DEA agent, and it wasn't helped by the atrocious voiceover given to that character (in fact, it's so bad, I couldn't bring myself watch any more after the first episode). But Netflix has the faith, because they've ordered up more. THR reports that "Narcos" has been renewed for season two. The creative team will get a slight switcheroo with Adam Fierro ("The Shield") stepping in as showrunner for Chris Brancato ("Hannibal"), and the writers room is being put together for the next wave of episodes.

Narcos Renewed For A Second Season By Netflix

3 September 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It only hit Netflix last Friday, but the online streaming service has already renewed Narcos for a second season. As a result, it can be added to the long list of successful original dramas that they’ve produced; House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Marco Polo, Bloodline, Sense8, Daredevil, and a number of others have all received renewals from Netflix in recent years as well as serious awards attention.

The second season of the drug trafficking drama revolving around Pablo Escobar and the DEA agents who set out to take him down doesn’t have a premiere date just yet, but common sense says it will return around the same time next year. Adam Fierro will serve as the new showrunner, as Chris Brancato has left to work on Kings and Prophets for ABC. Fierro has plenty of experience in TV though, as he’s previously worked on shows like 24, Dexter, »

Netflix has given a second season to “Narcos,” the drug-fueled period drama about Colombia’s cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel.

The series, which is created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, stars Wagner Moura as Escobar and Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal as the DEA agents on his trail and offers a dueling perspective of the drug trade business of the 1980s. Produced by Gaumont International Television, Season 1’s 10 episodes premiered Aug. 28 on Netflix. Exec producers are Jose Padilha, Eric Newman, Bancato, Miro and Bernard.

During Netflix’s Television Critics Association press day in July, Newman said they had originally considered doing the project as a movie but then decided a TV format would allow for more time to show the complexities of “not just the bad guys, but the good guys.”

‘American Crime’ Creator John Ridley Tunes Into Early Days Working in TV

1 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Ridley, the creator of ABC’s “American Crime,” won an Oscar two years ago for “12 Years a Slave.” But TV came first for the writer-producer, whose got his start on NBC sitcom “Rhythm & Blues” in 1992. His initial mention in Variety came in 1995, as co-producer of “The John Larroquette Show.”

What was “Larroquette like?

I was there for one season, and it was groundbreaking for me. It was the first time I had a deal. I worked with Mitch Hurwitz, a writer-showrunner who has one of the most creative minds around. “Larroquette” was a challenging show. It was about a recovering alcoholic, set in a bus terminal, with a cast that was black, white, Hispanic. I was also working with (exec producers) Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas; their legacy in this business is close to unrivaled.

What did you learn?

I learned from Mitch’s work ethic. Plus he »
