Crime drug stories with female protagonists have to be the most badass genre. Series like Queen of the South have won viewers’ hearts despite having such tragic endings. Another crime story with almost the same plot is the Griselda series, a show based on the real-life stories of Griselda Blanco, the crime lord and a woman who built one of the biggest drug empires in history. She got so famous, earning her the Black Widow title. The upcoming show will feature Sophia Vergara, the model, and actress playing the series’ protagonist. Here is everything we know about the upcoming show.

Griselda Season 1 Plot: What should fans expect?
Griselda Blanco is among the highest-ranking lords in the crime industry. Her name has appeared in the high and mighty list and even compared to some of the biggest crime lords to go down in history, like Pablo Escobar, Osiel Cardenas, Al Capone, and El Chapo. With her series coming to the screen, it is unclear whether the show will stick closely to her real-life stories or be tweaked. According to the logline released by Netflix, the upcoming show follows the life of Griselda, a mom who has managed to create the biggest crime cartels in history. Her lethal combination soon enough gains her recognition, and she is termed the Black Widow.
