Netflix drops ‘Griselda’ trailer and premiere date: Sofia Vergara takes dramatic turn ‘as you’ve never seen her before’ [WATCH]

Netflix has dropped its first teaser trailer for “Griselda,” a new limited series starring Sofia Vergara in her first dramatic role. The Emmy nominee also serves as an executive producer alongside “Narcos” and “Narcos: Mexico” creators Eric Newman and Andrés Baiz (who also directs all six episodes). “Griselda” will debut globally on Netflix on January 25, 2024. Watch the trailer below.

According to the streamer, “‘Griselda’ is inspired by the life of the savvy and ambitious Colombian, Griselda Blanco, who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. In the 1970s-80s Miami, Blanco’s lethal blend of unsuspected savagery and charm helped her expertly navigate between business and family, leading her to become widely known as ‘the Godmother.'”
