The series, which is a spinoff of the streaming platform's successful series Narcos, will follow Guadalajara Cartel and their leader, real-life Mexican drug cartel boss Félix Gallardo, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, or DEA, during the 1980s in Mexico. (Narcos, which is based on drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, takes place from the '70s to the '90s in Colombia.)
In the newly released clip, viewers see Michael Peña, who plays DEA agent Enrique 'Kiki' Camarena, in a seemingly sticky situation as a bag is taken off his head in a sketchy room that looks like it's made for torturing people. "Begin," says Diego Luna's Gallardo. Afterward, a series of clips featuring fields, guns, and plenty of late '70s (a la Saturday Night Fever) is displayed on the screen. But the high-paced drama won't be all for naught. "What I'm doing here? I'm building an empire," Luna's Gallardo says in the clip.
The real life Gallardo, who's nicknamed The Godfather, was eventually arrested for kidnapping and murder and sentenced to 37 years in jail, which he is still serving at a maximum security prison in Mexico. But it's bound to be a helluva ride before viewers get there.
As the video's caption reads: "New country. New cartel. New empire." Narcos: Mexico is slated to arrive on Netflix on Nov. 16.
