Two-time Emmy Award-winning executive producer/writer David Mills ("The Corner," "ER," and "NYPD Blue") has created NBC's gritty new series "Kingpin." In this stylized drama, the struggles and machinations of a powerful Mexican drug-trafficking family are displayed in graphic detail as they face challenges from both the United States Drug Enforcement Agency and from the dangerous underworld in which they reside.
A drug cartel leader and his family try to keep what is "rightfully" theirs.
Kingpin is an American crime drama television series which debuted on the NBC network in the U.S. and CTV in Canada on February 2, 2003 and lasted 6 episodes. NBC's answer to The Sopranos and also influenced by The Godfather, Macbeth and Traffik, the story was about a Mexican drug trafficker named Miguel Cadena and his family life. It was to be followed by a television series, but low ratings canceled those plans. Commercials for the mini-series on NBC featured the song "MÃ¡s" by the Mexican band Kinky.
