The novel by the famous writer and journalist has inspired this television production that will soon be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

The production based on real events tells the story of the kidnappings of a group of prominent Colombian figures, such as journalists Beatriz Villamizar, Diana Turbay, Azucena Liévano and Francisco Santos Calderón, the sister of the former Secretary General of the Presidency, Marina Montoya, politician and publicist Maruja Pachón, among others, in the 1990s.

These kidnappings were and executed planned by Pablo Escobar, and were carried out by the group of criminals who called themselves 'The Extraditables' and who also made up the Medellín Cartel.

The kidnappings were committed as part of a plan to intimidate and extort Colombian President César Gaviria, and to stop any type of agreement with the U.S. to extradite Colombian drug traffickers.

All these events, such as the fatal outcome for Turbay and Montoya, were recounted in Gabriel García Márquez's bestseller, Noticia de un secuestro (News of a kidnapping), considered one of the best books from the Colombian Nobel Prize winner.

The cast of News of a Kidnapping is made up of Cristina Umaña, Juan Pablo Raba, Majida Issa, Julieth Restrepo, Constanza Duque and Carmen Gómez — as seen in the trailer that was released by Prime Video this week.

The miniseries will air six one-hour episodes, and will premiere on Aug. 12.

News of a Kidnapping is directed by the Chilean director Andrés Wood, who is known for his part in the films Violeta Went to Heaven (2011), and the historical drama Machuca (2004).

Wood is also part of the executive production team, accompanied by María Elena Wood, Matías Cardone, Macarena Cardone, Patricio Pereira, Lourdes Díaz, Stuart Ford, Cristina Garza, and Gabriel García Márquez's own son, Rodrigo García, who is a director and screenwriter.

This is not the first Colombian production to appear in the Amazon Prime Video catalog, which includes El Niño de Medellín (about the life of singer J Balvin), the comedy Primate, and Mi Selección Colombia, which tells the story of passion between Colombians and football.
