It’s becoming increasingly common for filmmakers and actors to jump between TV and film — even Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson are doing it these days. And yet TV hasn’t quite shed its reputation as film’s less glamorous sibling.
Case in point: It’s still kind of surprising to hear Anne Hathaway, a young Oscar winner at the height of her career, is headed to the small screen.

Narcos is the Netflix series that tells the bloody story of Pablo Escobar, the Medellin cartel, and the law agents who sought to control the flow of cocaine and money in and out of Escobar’s organization.
