Netflix Acquire Comedic Documentary “The Legend of Cocaine Island”

Netflix has acquired the global streaming rights to the comedic documentary “The Legend of Cocaine Island” which will launch in 2019. The film, previously titled “White Tide: The Legend of Culebra”, follows a small-business owner and family man comes across the legend of a buried stash of cocaine worth $2 million hidden in the Caribbean. Having been wiped out during the Great Recession, he hatches a plan to retrieve the buried loot, using the talents of a band of colorful misfits. But without prior drug-running experience, trouble (and laughter) ensues.

Director Theo Love said “I grew up thinking documentaries had to be boring, stuffy, educational films but then I got my Netflix subscription. Netflix changed the game for docs in every way and we’re thrilled to add to their collection of true stories.”
