We are thrilled to have a chance to talk to Zach Calig, part of the creative team that brought you the hit Netflix Original Series, Narcos.  Skype was a little choppy the day we recorded, but the insights Zach gave us more than made up for the audio challenges.

We talk about the process of writing a show based on real life characters and events, how binge watching Narcos is like doing lines of cocaine, and what prompts the decisions to streamline historical events for an hourly serialized drama.   

Zach gives us a view on what it was like writing Episode 7 "You Will Cry Tears of Blood", the true impact of Pablo Escobar's Avianca bombing, the kidnapping of Diana Turbay and why we don't meet the Cali Cartel at the beginning of the story.

In addition, Zach gives us a preview of an upcoming project he's working on "Of Kings and Prophets" for ABC and his experience writing for Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales comic.

Zach can be reached on twitter @zachcalig
