Sean Penn & El Chapo Doc to Air on REELZ


ALBUQUERQUE: REELZ has lined up the original documentary special El Chapo & Sean Penn: Bungle in the Jungle for a March premiere.

Airing on March 10 at 9 p.m., El Chapo & Sean Penn: Bungle in the Jungle offers a behind-the-scenes look inside the famed meeting among Academy Award-winning actor Sean Penn, actress Kate Del Castillo and the infamous drug lord Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, known as “El Chapo.” The drug lord agreed to meet Penn in the remote mountains of Sinaloa, Mexico, granting the first and only interview since his escape from Mexico’s top-security prison.
