Griselda, which debuted at #1 on Netflix’s Top 10 on English TV Chart, is the fictionalized dramatization inspired by the life of the savvy and ambitious Griselda Blanco, whom Pablo Escobar once said “The only man I was ever afraid of was a woman named Griselda Blanco.” Coined as “the Godmother,” Grisleda is played by Sofía Vergara. In this series, Griselda Blanco (Vergara) spent ten years as the brains behind her husband Alberto’s drug trafficking operation in Medellín and New York. When she escapes to Florida with her three sons, she uses that know-how to build a new life for her family with a ferocity that doesn’t always serve her well
