Catherine Zeta-Jones portrays Griselda Blanco, “queen of all king pins”, in the upcoming TV biopic Cocaine Godmother, set to premiere on January 20 at 8 p.m. ET, on Lifetime.
The film is based on the life of Griselda Blanco Restrepo, known as La Madrina, the Black Widow, the Cocaine Godmother and the Queen of Narco-Trafficking, who became the most notorious female Colombian drug lord and a
pioneer in the Miami-based cocaine drug trade and underworld during the 1970s and early 1980s.
The cast also includes Carlos Rodriguez, Juan Pablo Espinosa, and Raul Mendez.
“I’ve been in prison since the day I was born. I’m used to it. Trust no one, in this life.” – the Academy and Tony Award winner is heard saying in the trailer, that features her stashing her drugs into the underwear of several young beautiful women, creating false-bottom suitcases to smuggle cocaine from Colombia to the United States, shooting people with her own hand, and warning that nobody gets in her way and that nobody insults her family.
The song playing in the trailer is the 2016 single “Game of Survival” by Ruelle, that appears on the 2016 EP, “Madness”.
