Stick around to find out more about these two thrilling documentaries that will certainly heightened your sixth sense!

Here are the two new documentaries premiering on HBO GO this July:

1. Traffickers: The Golden Triangle 

(HBO GO exposes the secretive epicenter of illicit drug production inside the Golden Triangle.)

The documentary series premieres exclusively on HBO GO from July 23 and follows the rise and demise of three infamous drug kingpins in Thailand, Myanmar and Laos.

The three-part hour-long documentary series is the first documentary that lifts the lid on the hidden world of drug production in the Golden Triangle and dives into this mysterious secretive criminal underbelly revealing tales of some of the most infamous drug lords in the region. It unravels how ‘the Opium King’, ‘The Mekong River Pirate’ and ‘The Playboy Drug Lord’ exploited drugs, war and violence to claw their way to the top. With exclusive interviews from members of their own inner circles, drug enforcement agents, and victims’ families, as well as never-before-seen archive footage and immersive recreations, TRAFFICKERS: INSIDE THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE brings to life the crimes and busts that brought these drug kingpins to their knees. 

2.Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes 

(Six-Part Series Brings To Life Ronan Farrow’s Hit Podcast Exposing The Powers That Tried To Silence Survivors And Journalists Behind Hollywood’s Unforgettable Story)

This six-part, half-hour documentary series, debuts with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, July 13 at 9am exclusively on HBO and HBO GO. Two new episodes will air back-to-back every subsequent Monday at the same time. The documentary series directed by Emmy® winners Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s “Carrie Fisher: Wishful Drinking”) brings to life Ronan Farrow’s intimate, revealing interviews with whistleblowers, journalists, private investigators and other sources, conducted for the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist’s podcast and bestselling book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and A Conspiracy to Protect Predators”.

The series expands on the podcast and the book, with never-before-seen footage and new insights into this culture-shaking story, enhanced by Bailey and Barbato’s creative weaving of additional sound and imagery from documents, audio tapes, photos, archive footage and striking illustrations. With fresh perspectives and detail — not just on the harrowing effort to expose one powerful predator, but on the systems that help cover up terrible crimes to this day — there are revelations in this series that may surprise even those familiar with the reporting.
