Netflix has released an extended first look at Sofia Vergara in her dramatic debut playing the role of Griselda Blanco in the 6-episode limited series, GRISELDA. Vergara is also Co-Creator and Executive Producer alongside Eric Newman (Narcos) and Director, Andrés Baiz. The series will debut in January 2024 on Netflix.
‘As a Colombian immigrant and single mother who came to America and built an empire, Sofía shares that personal aspect of this character and her passion for telling her story was undeniably the driving force behind this project. What will really surprise viewers is how she encompasses this complete darkness in her performance— a far cry from the beloved comedic star she’s known as. Finding her way to that place was her great challenge on this show, and seeing the successful transformation was a privilege.Co-Creator and Executive Producer, Eric Newman
