Netflix first announced the development of a crime drama miniseries based on the life of Griselda Blanco in 2021. In addition to her starring role, Sofia Vergara is also an executive producer of the show. Director Andrés Baiz, who helms the project, revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that Vergara saw this opportunity as a chance to reinvent herself and step out of her comfort zone.

I can’t wait!” and “She’s getting her Emmy.”
