Netflix has unveiled the trailer for its drug cartel drama Narcos.

The series hails from creator/EP Jose Padilha and chronicles the real-life stories of the drug kingpins from the 1980s and law enforcement's efforts to bring them down by any means necessary.

The cast includes Brazil star Wagner Moura (Elysium) as Colombia’s legendary crime lord Pablo Escobar as well as Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as DEA agents. (Season one showrunner Chris Brancato, however, has departed and The Walking Dead alum Adam Fierro will take over in advance of a second-season renewal.)

Narcos premieres Aug. 28 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Watch the trailer, below.
