O.G. follows Louis (Jeffrey Wright), once the head of a prominent prison gang, in the final weeks of his 24-year sentence. His impending release is upended when he takes new arrival Beecher (Theothus Carter), who is being courted by gang leadership, under his wing. Coming to grips with the indelibility of his crime and the challenge of reentering society, Louis finds his freedom hanging in the balance as he struggles to save Beecher.
Groundbreaking in being filmed at an actual prison, with many of the men incarcerated there cast in acting roles, O.G. takes an intimate and unflinching look at the journey of one man at the precipice of freedom.

Lakeshore Records‘ release of Narcos: A Netflix Original Series, Soundtrack By Pedro Bromfman is #1 on iTunes Brazil! Featuring score by Los Angeles-based Brazilian composer Pedro Bromfman, his music has been described as “mesmerizingly” by veteran film music critic Daniel Schweiger (read the interview at Film Music Magazine). We couldn’t be more pleased for Pedro and team Narcos!
Functioning as a history lesson as well as a compelling drama, “Narcos” has a “Goodfellas” vibe, inasmuch as it offers a heavily narrated, first-person account of the rise of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, and the DEA’s attempts to thwart him. Detailing cocaine’s rise as a Colombian cash crop and its rapid spread into the U.S. in the late 1980s, the sparely told project weaves together a taut, gripping narrative, in stark contrast with the flatness of its characters and color scheme. –Variety
