The Real Criminal Who Inspired Johnny Depp's Character In The Movie 'Blow' Set For Reality TV
George Jacob Jung was Johnny Depp’s real-life cocaine-dealing inspiration for the movie “Blow” and he is still locked up in prison.  But Jung is in talks with a TV show interested in doing a special on his life behind bars.

Sources close to Jung say that producers from the National Geographic Channel show “Locked Up Abroad” have reached out to the infamous coke kingpin in the hopes of featuring him on a documentary-style special on his “experiences surrounding imprisonment and release.”

Jung, who’s still serving time in LaTuna Prison in Texas for drug smuggling, was initially turned off by the idea – but now, we’re told, he’s had a change of heart and wants to do it.

“Locked Up Abroad” succesfully ran a similar movie-inspired episode last year which featuring the real-life Henry Hill who inspired the mob classic “Goodfellas.”

Jung’s business partners are slated to meet up with producers as soon as next week.
