A roundup

Sofia Vergara Griselda

Vergara is known for her comedic roles, but she is taking on a much more serious role in Griselda. She has said that she was drawn to the project because she wanted to portray a strong and complex woman.

Blanco was a real-life drug lord who was known for her ruthlessness and violence. She was also a mother, and Vergara said that she wanted to show the human side of Blanco as well.

The series is created by Eric Newman, Doug Miro, Ingrid Escajeda, and Carlo Bernard. Newman and Andrés Baiz, who directed every episode, are the creative minds behind the Netflix series Narcos and Narcos: Mexico.

The cast also includes Alberto Ammann, Diego Cadavid, Paulina Dávila, Gabriel Sloyer, Luis Guzmán, and Juan Pablo Raba. Griselda is sure to be a compelling and controversial series. It will be interesting to see how Vergara fares in her first leading dramatic role.
