Netflix's GRISELDA Atlanta Screening Hosted by Mona Scott-Young

Updated: Jan 24

On Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at iPic Atlanta Theater Mona Scott-Young hosted a special screening of Netflix's new limited series, GRISELDA, starring Sofia Vergara. The series premieres on January 25.

The intimate screening included special guests: Eva Marcille, Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris, Kirk and Rasheeda Frost, and more.

Mona Scott-Young shared with guests episode 1, and spoke on the power of Sofia's performance in the series, and what it means to be a BOSS (La Jefa), "I think watching this series, you will see we are all pushing our own kind of product...but what she [Griselda] also had was determination and passion and commitment to what it was she was doing. And she did it against all odds. And she did it in a world that was dominated by men. "

"In watching this series, there was a lot I could relate to. In watching this woman's struggle and Sofia Vergara who not only produces the series, but also stars in it and does an amazing job. That's another element I could relate to. Strong women doing what they do best."

Following the screening, guests attended a private reception at Rumi's Kitchen.


GRISELDA is inspired by the life of the savvy and ambitious Griselda Blanco, who created one of the most profitable cartels in history. In 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." Starring and executive produced by Sofia Vergara, the dramatic limited series GRISELDA is created by NARCOS and NARCOS: MEXICO showrunner Eric Newman, who comes to the title alongside NARCOS director Andrés Baiz, who directs all six episodes. The series is co-created by Doug Miro, Ingrid Escajeda & Carlo Bernard and Executive Produced by Newman, Miro, Escajeda, Bernard, along with Vergara and Luis Balaguer with Latin World Entertainment. In addition to Vergara, the series stars Alberto Guerra, Christian Tappan, Martín Rodríguez, Juliana Aidén Martinez, Vanessa Ferlito and, making her on screen debut, Carolina Giraldo (a.k.a Karol G).
