Internationally, the series premiered in Australia on Showcase on August 4, 2016.[60] German TV channel DMAX has been showing the series since June 14, 2017.[61]

The series is also available on Netflix. Netflix owns First Run rights to the show.

Inspiration[edit]

Pérez-Reverte, author of the novel, has stated that a great source of inspiration was Mexican narcocorridos (drug ballads),[62] country-polka songs that tell the stories about real life Mexican drug lords.

One of the real-life characters who inspired the novel is Sandra Ávila Beltrán,[63][64][65][66] known as the "Queen of the Pacific", famous for being one of the first female drug traffickers to reach the level of "boss" in the Mexican cartels, a place usually reserved for men.[67]
