Sponsored by Universal Pictures’ ‘American Made

Sometimes, history does all the work for Hollywood screenwriters. Case in point: The upcoming biopic “American Made,” which tells the wild (and true) story of the infamous Barry Seal?—?a pilot, turned drug smuggler, turned undercover informant.

Seal is responsible for importing thousands of pounds of cocaine and marijuana into the United States via airstrips in Louisiana, Arkansas and Florida. Along the way, he teamed up with the notorious Ochoa brothers and Pablo Escobar to create one of the biggest drug cartels the world has ever seen. He eventually became the Medellín Cartel’s best-kept secret and arguably one of the most important drug smugglers in history. And that’s just the beginning.
