A real-life Narcos is coming to our screens soon.

Channel 4 have announced they'll be taking a real-life look behind the Netflix series and get to the real story.

The Real Life Narcos will document the War on Drugs against drug cartels in the 1980s and go to the frontline in Mexico, Peru and Colombia.

Digital Spy reports it'll be fronted by former Special Forces soldier Jason Fox, who "spent many years trying to bring down powerful figures in the Cartel during his active duty, but now he'll take a different approach in trying to understand what motivates Narcos to take part in such an illicit and illegal trade".

Jason says "Meeting the Narcos, unarmed, on their own turf was an incredible and sometimes terrifying experience – it opened my eyes even further to the power they hold and to some of the social and economic pressures which are constantly at play behind them."
 
No word yet on when it'll be out but we can't wait!
