The also known as ‘The Black Widow’ was one of the leaders of the Medellin Cartel and godmother of Pablo Escobar.

The universe of narcoseries continues with new stories on Netflix, as now Griselda Blanco will be the star of the platform’s new production.

The series titled Griselda will delve into the life and tyranny of the also known as “The Black Widow”, one of Colombia’s most important drug traffickers and leader of the feared Medellin Cartel.

“La Gran Señora” was born on February 15, 1943 in Cartagena, Colombia, and received her main nickname because she was married on several occasions, but her partners always ended up dead.

Sofia Vergara will play Griselda, the woman who emerged from obscurity to become “the godmother” of the underworld. Inspired by the story of Griselda Blanco. Coming soon, only on Netflix.

One of the reasons why Griselda Blanco deserves a narcoseries, for which Netflix raised its hand, was because she was one of the most important traffickers of the 20th century, plus she established an entire cocaine trafficking network between Colombia and Miami, United States.

As one of the most important figures in drug trafficking, she involved Pablo Escobar in the drug business and became his godmother.

In 1985 she was captured by U.S. authorities; however, thanks to a technicality she was released after 20 years in prison, so she returned to Colombia, where she was shot to death by a motorcyclist on September 3, 2012.

Here the first photos of Sofia Vergara in ‘Griselda’ 👀, the story of the legendary ‘godmother’ of the cartel world coming to Netflix in January 2024.
