Griselda, a new drama on Netflix, will show Sofia Vergara in a whole new light. Griselda Blanco, a Colombian entrepreneur turned drug boss known as “The Godmother” of Miami, Florida’s criminal underworld in the 1970s, is the real-life inspiration for the six-part limited series.
We have faith in this project because it was developed by the same team that brought us Narcos and Painkiller. Here is all the information you need about Griselda, a Netflix original series, including the cast, when it will be released, and more.
Griselda Netflix Release Date
On January 24, 2024, Griselda will be available to watch on Netflix. Andrés Baiz, who has worked with Eric Newman on Narcos, also acts as showrunner and directs each of the six hour-long episodes.
“Griselda leapt out at me as a fascinating character from the earliest days of my research for what became Narcos,” Newman tells Netflix. “Griselda presented the ideal opportunity and the biggest challenge in my lifelong quest to humanize complex individuals, even those who have been stigmatized as evil.”
Below you can check the complete trailer for Griselda, which dropped today:
In an interview with Netflix, director Andrés Baiz discussed the period setting and how it allowed them to be playful and imaginative with the world-building. He mentioned that Miami in the 1970s and 1980s provided that possibility. I drew inspiration for my own distinctive tone from the score, the set designs, the costumes, and the architecture; it’s a little weird, vivacious, seductive, and unorthodox.
Guess who’s joining the Griselda cast?
A list of the Griselda cast members, along with the roles they perform, follows below:
- Sophia Vergara as Griselda Blanco
- Alberto Guerra as Dario
- Vanessa Ferlito as Isabel
- Alberto Ammann as Alberto Bravo
- Christian Tappan as Arturo
- Diego Trujillo as German Panesso
- Paulina Davila as Carmen
- Gabriel Sloyer as Diaz
- Juliana Aidén Martinez as June
- Martin Rodriguez as Rivi
- José Zúñiga as Amilcar
- Maximiliano Hernández as Papo Mejia
- Julieth Restrepo as Marta Ochoa
Whenever Vergara sets her mind to something, I have no doubt that she will succeed at it; this is something that Eric Newman said about her performance as Griselda.
It was completely out of character for her to do, but the fact that she is a single mother like Griselda—who came to the United States from Colombia with nothing and built an empire—made her an ideal choice for the part. People have this preconceived notion of Sofia as a stunning and talented comedy actress, but that’s far from the truth.
