The true story of Griselda Blanco from the creator of Narcos.
Created by Eric Newman (Narcos, Narcos: Mexico) and directed by Andrés Baiz, with Ingrid Escajeda as showrunner, this new six-episode 50-minute mini-series will chronicle the life of Griselda Blanco, a Colombian who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. A devoted mother, her deadly mix of charm and unsuspected savagery helped her navigate family and business for several years, earning her the nickname “Black Widow”. She burst onto the pop culture scene after her exploits were highlighted in the 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys and its sequel two years later by Billy Corben. She was portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the 2018 biopic Cocaine Godmother.
