Attention, binge-watchers and crime-drama aficionados! The Netflix gods have blessed us once again, this time with a high-octane limited series starring none other than Sofía Vergara as the infamous Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco. Known as “The Godmother,” Blanco’s empire—rooted in cocaine trade from Colombia to Miami—flourished in the ’70s and ’80s before her eventual downfall in 2012 when she was killed by police.
Netflix just dropped the first teaser trailer for Griselda, masterminded by the genius duo behind Narcos, Eric Newman and Andrés Baiz. The teaser gives us a sneak peek of Vergara in all her commanding glory, portraying the titular character who navigates a world dominated by men. If the clip is anything to go by, get ready for a suspense-filled, roller-coaster journey that delves into the intricate world of drug trade, male-dominated oppression, and calculated strategy.
In a recent press statement, Andrés Baiz—the man in the director’s chair—shed light on the complexity of Blanco’s character. “When we meet Griselda, she is a woman overrun by the male-dominated world around her. Yet, she uses this very oppression as a weapon of terror. The duality of her persona is absolutely intriguing,” said Baiz, adding that Sofía Vergara’s fierce portrayal captures the very essence of Griselda Blanco.
