The Lifetime movie Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story will debut on January 20 at 8 PM.

Film star Catherine Zeta-Jones stars as drug lord Griselda Blanco, a pioneer in the Miami-based cocaine trade, who at the age of 17 made her way to the U.S. with a fake passport and her first husband Carlos. Living in Queens with her three sons, she became enticed by the money the drug world offered, and quickly became embroiled with local drug runners. Griselda masterminded the use of beautiful women, the elderly and children as the mules and created false-bottom suitcases to smuggle cocaine from Colombia. With money rolling in, her sons abandoned school and entered the family business instead.

A move to Miami would further expand her empire, and lead to the death of her second husband Alberto (Juan Pablo Espinosa), giving the rise to her nickname, The Black Widow. Her willingness to use violence against her Miami competitors, led her rivals to make repeated unsuccessful attempts to kill her. In order to protect her youngest son with third husband Dario, she moved to California where she was later arrested by the DEA and sentenced to a decade in jail. The case against her collapsed and upon her release, she was deported to Colombia, where she was ultimately gunned down in 2012.

Here is a trailer for Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story:
