Hear the story behind Netflix’s ‘Narcos’

'A Conversation on Narcos' will take you inside the real-life story that inspired Netflix series 'Narcos'.

Following sold-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney last year, US DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena will return to Australia in 2019 for A Conversation on Narcos.

The evening of conversation will see the pair take audience members through their instrumental role in the takedown of Pablo Escobar and the Cali cartel.

The actions of Pena and Murphy were the inspiration for the hugely popular Netflix crime series Narcos, which tells the story of Colombia’s infamous drug cartels and Pablo Escobar’s fight to maintain his position as the most powerful player.

Agents Pena and Murphy will speak about the rise and fall of the Medellin Cartel and the role they played in bringing down its notorious leader. Including exclusive stories and images not seen in the series, this unique event gives Narcos fans, and those interested in Pablo Escobar, the opportunity to hear first-hand from the two men who were key in his capture in 1993.

Ahead of their trip Down Under, Agent Steve Murphy says, “Are you a NARCOS fan?  Do you know what’s fact and what’s fiction?  Join Javier and I as we return to Australia and New Zealand to tell the true story about Pablo Escobar.  We’ll answer questions about Pablo, the Cali Cartel (from season 3), Kiki Camarena (from season 4), the making of NARCOS, and even our personal lives.”
