Netflix will screen The Day I Met El Chapo a biographical account of Mexican actress, Kate del Castillo’s meeting with one of the world’s most notorious drug lords and a Hollywood star (presumably Sean Penn, although the release does not detail).
The three-part series tells her side of the story using never-before-seen footage.
“As an actress I’ve been given the opportunity to portray fascinating fictional characters, roles I am very proud of. Now I get the chance to tell my story, my reality, my truth. This project will dive into how it began, why I pursued accepting the rights to the life story of one of the most controversial narco figures and what happened after,” said del Castillo.
“I was extremely excited to delve into the craziest ‘life imitating art’ saga I’ve ever heard, a story wrapped around a core of complex social and political issues. I’m honored that Kate gave me the opportunity to tell her truth,” said David Broome, series creator and executive producer.
Friday October 20 on Netflix.
