The first season of the series, originally aired in Chile on HBO Latinoamérica last year. Award-winning Chilean director and producer Pablo Larrain and Venezuelan director Jonathan Jakubowicz directed the first season of Prófugos that will debut today in North America for the first time.

Synopsis: PRÓFUGOS is the story of a failed drug trafficking operation that started on the border between Bolivia and Chile, the four men who met to carry it out and the real actors behind the business. A complex web of ambitions, interests and corruption move the threads of this story, where no one is who they appear to be, everyone hides a past and human wretchedness unites them in the imperious need to flee without knowing who and what they are fleeing from.
