‘Narcos’ Director José Padilha Tackling Aryan Brotherhood In Prison Series ‘The Brand’

Mar 2, 2016

Deadline has learned that Narcos producer and director José Padilha (Robocop, Elite Squad) will tackle the Aryan Brotherhood in a prison dramatic series titles The Brand for Showtime, which he’ll co-write and direct.

The epic tale of the rise of prison gangs, particularly the Aryan Brotherhood, in the 1970s and 1980s, when mass incarceration resulting from the war on drugs caused the prison population to explode.

Written by Padliha and Alessandro Camon, The Brand is inspired by a 2004 article from David Grann for The New Yorker.

It sounds like season two of Narcos and even a possible Robocop sequel could be moving along without him.
