The extended release from Netflix reads:
“Griselda chronicles the real-life of savvy and ambitious Colombian businesswoman Griselda Blanco, who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. A devoted mother, Blanco’s lethal blend of charm and unsuspecting savagery helped her expertly navigate between family and business leading her to become widely known as the Black Widow.”
While this has long been a passion project for Vergara, it won't be the first time that the life of Griselda Blanco will be translated to the big screen. Her story has previously been told by the 2017 film Cocaine Godmother, where she was portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lopez is also working on a project featuring Griselda Blanco called The Godmother, in partnership with STX Films.
The series has also added 10 new cast members including, Alberto Guerra (Narcos: Mexico), Vanessa Ferlito (NCIS: New Orleans), Alberto Ammann (Narcos), Christian Tappan (Snowfall), Diego Trujillo (Los Reyes), Paulina Dávila (Luis Miguel: The Series), Gabriel Sloyer (Power), José Zúñiga (Madam Secretary), Juliana Aidén Martinez (Prodigal Son) and Martin Rodriguez.
