In our July 27 Facebook Live session, Senior Investigator Deborah Bonello spoke with Gerardo Reyes, the vice president of the investigative unit at Univision, about film and television portrayals of organized crime in Mexico.

The conversation centered largely around the recent television series “El Chapo,” produced by Univision and Netflix, which draws its inspiration from the real-life Sinaloa Cartel kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. Bonello and Reyes discussed various issues raised in Bonello’s recent review of the series for InSight Crime, as well as other aspects of narcoculture and organized crime as portrayed in popular culture.
