A location scout for the hit Netflix series, Nacros, has been found dead after he was shot multiple times while searching for filming locations in central Mexico.

Carlos Muñoz Portal was discovered in his car on Monday in the rural town of Temascalapa, an area believed to have one of the highest murder rates in the entire country.

The motive for the shooting is not yet know, though according to reports, police have said his car appeared to have been involved in some sort of chase.

A lack of witnesses mean Mexican authorities are struggling to piece together what little information they have.

The 37-year-old was an experienced location manager and had worked on a number of productions in Mexico including Man on Fire, Apocalypto and the latest Bond film, Spectre.

Netflix issued a brief statement, saying, "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family. The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."

Nacros season four sees the location move form Colombia to Mexico, though it is not yet know if the producers will continue to seek out Mexico locations.


Stop everything!

Netflix have just released the official trailer for the third season of drug cartel drama, Narcos.

Now that the hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA have turned their attention to the powerful Cali Cartel, led by its four kings.

Unlike Escobar, this cartel prefers to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions away from the headlines.

However, just as Gilberto, AKA the “boss of bosses”, announces his plans to walk away form the business, DEA agent, Javier Peña, enlists the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take it down.

The new season of Narcos opens a complex world of new figures including Franklin Jurado, the cartel’s money launderer who unknowingly puts his wife, Christina (Kerry Bishe) in mortal danger and David Rodriguez, Miguel’s oldest son, who is reluctant at first to take a leading role in the cartel structure.

All rules have changed for the narcos and their opponents, but the questions is – will they realise this before it's too late?

Narcos season three, premieres globally on Netflix on September 1. 


Well, it was certainly a birthday party to remember.

The infamous Noel Gallagher celebrated his 50th birthday last weekend, and it couldn't have been more star-studded.

The guitarist had a Narcos-themed bash (standard) and among the guests were Bono, Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Madonna, Stella McCarthey, David Walliams, and many, many more.

The music, the drinks, and the social media snaps were flowing all night long and it certainly seemed like everyone had a great time:


Sometimes, if we have a little too much to drink, we think we've seen in all. Major celebs in Coppers, aliens, and in this man's case, Pablo Escobar.

With Narcos in full flight on Netflix, and with every episode having gone up in one go, it's safe to say many people have binge-watched the latest series, and we can't help but think that's why this man called 999 claiming the former drug lord was in a nightclub with him.

Pablo died in 1993, so we sincerely doubt he was drinking a few pints in Manchester on an average Saturday night.

According to the Manchester Police, the man called multiple times in the space of a few short minutes.

Greater Manchester Police tweeted: "We suspect 1am 999 call Charles St from man claiming to be FBI, asking for help to detain Pablo Escobar in a nearby nightclub, was a hoax."

Lads, don't drink and dial.


*If you haven't seen the end of season one – spoiler alert*

Whether you've just started the second season or have binge-watched it already, Narcos has been one of the greatest TV shows to come out of Netflix.

The show follows Pablo Escobar, the Colombian druglord, and his rise and demise in the drug trafficking world.

Going into the second season, we see Escobar escape from jail which lands him and indeed, everyone around him, in hot water.

We're totally hooked here in Shemazing HQ!, so we were delighted to find out that it has just been renewed for a third and fourth season.

Hurrah! We won't have to say goodbye just yet.


If you – like us – were absolutely hooked on crime drama, Narcos, then you’ll be all too aware that season 2 of the smash-hit show is launching tomorrow.

Telling the story of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, Narcos has captured the imagination of millions, and the good folk at Netflix have treated eager fans to a sneak peek of what’s to come.

Trailed by the Colombian authorities, ol’ Pablo is on the run, and, frankly people, we’re on the edge of our seats.

If you’ve heard the hype but have yet to tune in, catch up on every episode from season 1 on Netflix right now, and then join us at the watercooler for an in-depth discussion, won’t you?

Check this one out, ladies.



Yes, yes and yes.

When Narcos first aired last year, we were totally hooked. It delved into the life of Pablo Escobar, the infamous druglord of the 1980s, and his rise and fall in the cocaine business.

It took on many angles, too – political, military, civilian – and how they were all effected by his power.

However, season 2 begins with Pablo escaping prison, and by the look of it, everyone is after him.

We have to say, it's pretty intense, but that doesn't mean we won't binge-watch all of the series when it hits Netflix on Spetember 2.

We. Can't. Wait. 



Narcos was one of them TV shows that you randomly started watching while bored one day on in Netflix. And then after binge-watching and being sucked into the show, it felt like there was a giant Narcos-sized hole left behind when it ended.

We've been there, but particularly with this series that gripped you from the very beginning.

Well, Hallelujah girls, because the season two teaser trailer has just landed, and even though it doesn't tell you much about the story (like nothing, at all), it does tell you when it's coming back to a Netflix screen near you.

In the video, you'll see Pablo Escobar looking very intense while staring down into the camera. Then three important dates pop up on the screen: 1/12/49 (the day he was born), 2/12/93 (the day he died) and 2/9/2016 (the day the series is coming back).

Have a look at the teaser here:



We are just a little over a month away from Netflix’s newest crime drama’s release and oh, are we excited or what!

Narcos is based on real-life Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura), when he was at the height of his power in the 1980s.

In the show’s first trailer we see DEA agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook aka Elizabeth Olsen’s ex-fiancé) as the policeman who is determined to bring the ‘King of Cocaine’ down.

Narcos tells the story of the most powerful man in Colombia who became responsible for approximately 80 percent of the world’s cocaine distribution and almost single-handedly turned Colombia into the murder capital of the world.

Game of Thrones fans will be glad to see a familiar face as Oberyn Martel (Pedro Pascal) plays Javier Peña, the Mexican DEA agent who helped to bring Escobar down.

And for any Entourage fans out there, we can promise you that this looks a WHOLE lot more promising than Vincent Chase’s Medellin
