One of the most infamous drug lords in history, Griselda Blanco is frequently mentioned with Pablo

Escobar, Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, Al Capone, and El Chapo on lists of the top drug lords.

Her tale will be told in this limited series, although it’s unknown how well it will reflect actual events.

The series’ official logline is as follows:

GRISELDA chronicles the real life of savvy and ambitious Colombian business woman, Griselda Blanco, who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. A devoted mother, Blanco’s lethal blend of charm and unsuspecting savagery helped her expertly navigate between family and business leading her to become widely known as the “Black Widow”.

An fantastic introduction to the series was created by The Independent, detailing the drug queen’s rule

throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and up to her untimely demise in 2012.

We have already seen Griselda appear on our TVs. In the 2018 television film Cocaine Godmother: The

Griselda Blanco Story, Catherine Zeta-Jones portrayed the role.

Filming reportedly started on January 24th, 2022, and was initially expected to end on June 30th,

according to many production listings.

The television show is being shot in two well-known cities: Miami, Florida, and Los Angeles, California,

where some of the scenes are being shot. The production reportedly started shooting in Los Angeles the
