Who is in the cast of The Last Narc?
This new docuseries centres around special agent Hector Berrellez and his testimony, as he was given the task of finding out what happened to Kiki Camarena.
The series also features interviews with the DEA agent’s widow, Geneva, known as ‘Mika’, and three insiders for the Guadalajara Cartel – the Mexican drug cartel formed by Rafael Caro Quintero, Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo and Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo.
The insiders were corrupt policemen who were protecting the drug lords before they had a change of heart in order to understand what really happened to Camarena.
In the Narcos: Mexico series, Michael Peña takes on the role of the iconic DEA agent, but director Russell stressed the two interpretations were very different.
He told IndieWire: “This is a different undertaking. This is a very well-known, well-publicized case and what we’re contributing to it is astonishing true revelations that people have been wondering about for a very long time.”
Is there a trailer for The Last Narc?
Yes, Amazon Prime has treated viewers to a sneak peek of what is to come in the new docuseries, and the trailer is available to watch on the streaming platform’s website, and on YouTube.
At the start of the trailer Hector Berrellez is heard saying: “I remember being at a gym when all of a sudden news comes on the screen, I stop and say, ‘Oh my god, they’ve got Kiki’.”
Camarena’s widow, Mika, says in an emotional interview: “Kiki always wanted to do the right thing, at 18 he wanted to be an FBI agent. I remember the children coming home and I had to tell them he had been tortured.”
In never before seen interviews, acquaintances of the respected DEA agent say he was “one of the guys you would want on your team”, and he was “good at what he did”.
Viewers have the chance to see unprecedented material such as wedding photos, and pictures of Camarena as a young man.
Over some tense music, another interviewee is heard saying: “He inflicted tremendous pain on the cartel.”

Camarena was captured and tortured as he was about to uncover how US officials were protecting drug lords in Mexico.
The official synopsis for the trailer says: “In 1985, American DEA agent Enrique ‘Kiki’ Camarena was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by Mexico’s most notorious drug lords.
“Thirty-five years later, three former cartel insiders share unprecedented details. This is the story of Camarena, the drug cartel he infiltrated, and the narc who risked everything to discover the truth.”
Camarena had been transferred from California to Mexico to work on an assignment, and in Mexico, he discovered a huge marijuana plantation.
He was accused of tipping off agents about the plantation and he was abducted by corrupt Mexican policemen. He was tortured over a 30-hour period and his body was found near a ranch a month after he disappeared.

In the Narcos: Mexico series, Rafa (Tenoch Huerta) orders the kidnapping of Kiki, who is tortured by the cartel.
The DEA manages to hunt down Rafa, who had gone into hiding, and they are able to get more information about where their colleague is being hidden.
But the agents are too late and they find his body in a rural area. He had been kept awake with adrenaline so he could feel the pain.
In the second series of Narcos: Mexico Delgado, a physician who helped torture Kiki, is interrogated by the DEA who ask for more information about Camarena’s death.
Peña, who plays Camarena in the series, told Collider: “It was crazy, I had the job where I had to go to all these different places trying to chase the cartel.
“You see me with a bag over my head. It’s kind of eerie, it’s not a good feeling.”
The Last Narc airs on Amazon Prime on May 15.
