A Conversation on Narcos featuring the capturing of Pablo Escobar and The Cali Cartel with DEA Agents, Steve Murphy & Javier Pena who inspired the hit Netflix show.
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 the agents played in bringing down its notorious leader, 'The King of Cocaine’. The evening’s discussion will shed light on their input into the hit Netflix series, where they will reveal information which does not feature in the show, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Javier Pena joined The US DEA in 1984. It was four years later the retired Special Agent in Charge volunteered for an assignment in Bogota, Colombia. It was there that Pena and his partner Special Agent, Steve Murphy set out to bring down the drug cartel in Medellin and its leader Pablo Escobar.
