Griselda Series


Griselda Series

Inspired by true events, the series is set in Miami during the '70s and '80s cocaine boom and follows 'Griselda' and her right-hand man and enforcer 'Rivi' (Rodríguez) who together became an unsuspecting lethal blend of savagery and charm, creating one of the largest drug empires, achieving power, wealth, and respect while eliciting unmatched fear. Unlike the typical cliched Narcos hitman stereotype of a cold and brooding thug, Rodríguez's character 'Rivi' is charismatic, sexy, and full of intrigue. His reverence and respect for Griselda, as well as other women he encounters, makes him an instantly likeable character, and provides a stark contrast to the patriarchal tendencies that we typically tend to see displayed by the most powerful men in these types of shows.

 

While he is someone whose goals exist seemingly completely divorced from the struggle for power and money, he is nonetheless intimidating and deadly. The character 'Rivi' is based on the real person Rivi Ayala, who is also the only person from within Griselda's intimate circle that is still alive today. Executive produced and starring Vergara, the series also stars Vanessa Ferlito, Alberto Guerra, Christian Tappan, and singer Karol G, and is set to premiere on Netflix on January 25th, 2024.

 

Review: Although it doesn't directly follow on incredible series Narcos and Narcos Mexico, Griselda staring Sofia Vergaras is a short series that sheds light on the dark and dangerous world of Narcotics.  Great mini series!
