Kingpin premiered on NBC on February 2, 2003. This gritty, realistic drama spotlights America's war against a brutal, family-run narcotics cartel as heroic Drug Enforcement Agency operatives square off against charismatic drug chieftain Miguel Cadena. Also in the show are Miguel's cold-blooded, drug- trafficking brother; his ruthless, power-hungry wife; a plastic surgeon and the cartel's key distribution link; and a take-charge D.E.A. special agent. The ongoing fight never allows its undercover warriors to know who is friend, foe -- or family -- and stealthy infiltration and betrayal is the only universal constant.
