Pablo Escobar’s brother has demanded that Netflix allows him to review the upcoming season of the popular Netflix series “Narcos” which details the infamous Colombian drug lord’s rise to become the most influential cocaine trafficker in history.

According to TMZ, Roberto Escobar wrote a letter to Netflix demanding that they let him review season 2 before it is released to the public. Escobar, also known as “El Osito,” who was an accountant for the Medellín cartel, sent what he referred to as a “formal, friendly request” to evaluate the show “solely on an informational basis.”

Pablo Escobar’s older brother alleges that the first season was filled with multiple lies and inaccuracies that his brother would not approve of, according to the Daily Mail.

In a statement released by Escobar, Inc., Roberto said, “It is depicting me, my life, my family, and my brother … I think nobody else in the world is alive to determine the validity of the materials, but me.”

TMZ reported that the letter was written at an undisclosed location in Colombia and was stamped with the Escobar family seal.

Roberto Escobar established Escobar, Inc. back in 2015 to register successor-in-interest rights to Pablo and the Escobar name in California, which ironically is the same year that “Narcos” premiered on Netflix.

In an interview with Variety, Escobar, Inc.’s CEO, Olof K. Gustafsson, said that they tried to get in touch with Netflix before the first season was released, but did not get any response.

Gustafsson said: “I think it is important that they recognize Roberto Escobar’s wishes to review the show they are putting out, ensuring the family and viewers of an accurate portrayal of Pablo and Roberto.”
