Narcos is currently the number one show on Netflix, based on global consumer demand. New style guides and creative materials based n the first three seasons of the hit show are now available for use by licensees and retailers.

“Both traditional licensing and direct to retail collaboration opportunities are now available.”

Gayle Goldsmith of Lisle Licensing, added: “Narcos is a top ranked show with so many different layers of story. The new creative direction is fantastic and positions the brand as aspirational lifestyle for the 18 and over consumer demographic, providing edgy artwork, which can take the brand in a number of new directions.
