Two-time Emmy Award-winning executive producer/writer David Mills (ER, NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life on the Street) has created the gritty new series Kingpin. In this stylized drama, the struggles and machinations of a powerful Mexican drug-trafficking family are displayed in graphic detail as they face challenges from both the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and from the dangerous underworld in which they reside.

Yancey Arias stars as Stanford-educated Miguel Cadena, a savvy businessman who has risen to the threshold of supremacy in his family’s illegal drug cartel as power begins to pass from one generation to the next. Behind the opulent façade of the Cadenas’ lifestyle of private jets, yachts and villas stands a massive drug-dealing operation that produces immense quantities of illegal narcotics despite the ongoing family infighting.

Episode One

As the family leader Tio Jorge deteriorates in exile, the next generation of a powerful drug cartel family strategizes to take over ‘La Corporacion’, a multi-million dollar business.
