“Lexington Kentucky blueblood Drew Thornton turns his back on a life of privilege to embrace the dark side, turning from cop to international drug smuggler, flying planeloads of cocaine into America from South America.”
“But one day, he mysteriously falls to his death in a Knoxville, Tennessee driveway with his huge bag of cocaine, armed to the teeth and wearing a pair of…Gucci loafers? How this modern-day Icarus and his fancy shoes have become forever connected to the cocaine bear is the legend behind Cocaine Bear: The True Story.”

Meanwhile, the horror comedy is available on Digital and Peacock Now:
The documentary takes a deep dive into the odd circumstances that inspired the blockbuster Hollywood film Cocaine Bear over 60 minutes. The documentary chronicles the life of Kentucky aristocrat Drew Thornton and the notorious drug run that indelibly linked him to a cocaine-addled bear in Georgia.
The documentary includes interviews with key players, such as the former sheriff who arrived on the scene quickly and the special agent whose squad stumbled upon The Cocaine Bear.
In the blockbuster film Cocaine Bear, a bear goes on a rampage after a massive bag of cocaine falls from the sky into the North Georgia forests and is consumed by the animal. It’s based on a true story that involves drug cartels, murder, mayhem, and a Lexington, Kentucky, blueblood named Drew Thornton, and while it may sound fantastical, it’s based on actual events.
After a life of affluence, Thornton abandons it to become a drug smuggler who brings tons of cocaine into the United States from South America via plane. But then one day, he is found dead in a Knoxville, Tennessee driveway, a massive bag of cocaine in one hand, a gun in the other, and a pair of…Gucci loafers on his feet.
Cocaine Bear: The Real Story tells the legend of how a modern-day Icarus and his flashy footwear became inextricably linked to the cocaine bear.
