Unrecognizable Sofia Vergara in the trailer for the crime series “Griselda”

The 51-year-old Colombian native portrayed her famous compatriot, the godmother of the drug cartel.

Netflix has released a trailer for the mini-series Griselda. The plot is built around Griselda Blanco, a real woman who, in the 70s and 80s. managed to put together a multi-million dollar drug cartel in Miami. In the role of the famous compatriot, Vergara looks completely different than she did in the breakthrough project “Modern Family” (2009 – 2020).

"Griselda is a rise-and-fall story like no one has ever seen before," series creator Eric Newman told Netflix. “It’s exciting, emotional, funny, frightening and tragic at the same time. Griselda is an anti-heroine of the highest order, with contradictions that belie her inner essence.”

The project also stars Alberto Guerra, Martin Rodriguez, Orlando Pineda, singer Carol G and others. “Griselda” will be available for viewing on Netflix on January 25th.
