Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos will horrify viewers with gruesome scenes when it starts this week.
The dramatic three-part Channel 4 series delves deep into the South American crime scene with shocking access to the violent cartles.
Ex-Special Forces soldier Jason Fox is risking his life to meet the kind of gangsters he used to take down for a living.
The SAS: Who Dares Wins star used to hunt down drugs lords but this time will be unarmed and at their mercy.
The shocking new documentary, which airs on Thursday night, is certainly not for the squeamish as viewers will see dismembered corpses and child assasins.
Travelling on the gangs’ home turf, "Foxy", seeks to understand how the billion-dollar cartels operate and how they continue to evade the law.
He meets some unsavoury characters, from underworld kingpins to their foot soldiers who enforce their decrees.
The former Special Forces soldier is also introduced to the drug producers and traffickers throughout Mexico, Colombia and Peru.
In the first episode alone there’s more than enough to keep you awake at night.
Fox visits one of the most dangerous places in the world, Mexico, where drug violence has caused the disappearance of 200,000 people since 2006.
His life is literally in the hands of the fearsome Sinaloa Cartel as he travels into the Golden triangle to meet one of their security chiefs.
Jason meets a former child hit-man, known as Wolf boy, who was sent to cartel assassin training camps at the age of 12.
Wolf boy assassinated more than 30 people for the cartel, before finally turning himself into the police when he realised they had decided to kill him.
Then, while on patrol with a CSI investigator, they witness the shocking aftermath of a man that even horrifies experienced Jason.
The dismembered body of a man killed in a turf war is laid out in the street as a warning to others.
In episode two Foxy travels to Colombia to meet a trafficker preparing to paddle £10 million worth of cocaine in a canoe to a waiting container ship.
He also meets Popeye, close friend and chief assassin for Pablo Escobar, who personally killed 257 people to help the famous drug lord build his empire.
