Here’s a casting you wouldn’t expect. Deadline has reported that Sofia Vergara will take on the role of drug lord Griselda Blanco in an upcoming miniseries for Netflix simply titled Griselda. It’ll simply be titled Griselda and explore her life building one of the most profitable cartels in human history. She was infamously known as “Black Widow” as she balanced her criminal and family life.
Empire’s Ingrid Escajeda will act as showrunner, writer, and executive producer on the show. She’ll be joined by Eric Newman, Andrés Baiz, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro, who were the creative team behind the popular series Narcos. They, however, confirmed that there is no connection between the series.[UPDATING]
