‘Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami’ is an upcoming Netflix documentary series that focuses on two of the biggest drug lords hailing from Miami, Florida. Cuban exiles Augusto “Willie” Falcon and Salvador “Sal” Magluta were ordinary human beings and powerboat racers who turned into celebrities after starting a drug cartel that would go on to become the police’s biggest nightmare.

The duo worked recklessly and established a drug empire that operated in the entire nation. While working, they imported and distributed over 75 tons of cocaine into the US in the 1980s and made over $2B. Even after four decades, the case of the ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ is still one of the largest drug cases in the nation’s history. The upcoming series further expands the list of documentaries featuring on the streaming platform. Other projects such as ‘Shiny_Flakes: The Teenage Drug Lord’ and ‘The Business of Drugs’ also performed quite well for the streaming giant. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming documentary series.

Plot

“Fifteen years after the release of his cult classic film comes director Billy Corben’s ‘Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami’, a six-part saga on the South Florida traffickers indicted in one of the largest drug cases in U.S. history. Alleged to be the chief U.S. distributors for two of Colombia’s biggest cartels, Cuban exiles Augusto “Willy” Falcon and Salvador “Sal” Magluta were accused of smuggling over 75 tons of cocaine into the U.S. in the 1980s. The high school friends built a reputed $2 billion empire that made Willy and Sal, aka “Los Muchachos,” two of Miami’s biggest celebrities. While law enforcement plotted their takedown, the world champion powerboat racers managed to skillfully outrun and outmaneuver prosecution for decades before the chase finally came to an end. Featuring colorful interviews with those closest to them, their defense team, and the Feds tasked with taking them down, the series paints a vivid portrait of the last of Miami’s “cocaine cowboys".”

Cast

The upcoming documentary will feature interviews with people closely associated with Augusto and Magluta. The defense team that represented them during the trial will also be a part of the cast and the federal agents who caught them will also be revealing all the details about the case.

Creators

The film is being helmed by Billy Corben, who is known for directing projects such as ‘The Tanning of America’, ‘Screwball’, ‘Dawg Fight’, and ‘537 Votes’. He is also serving as the executive producer on the series.
