And it should be in Spanish!!!


A mini series would be great but even more time consuming for her. If they get great directors/writers this could really be an amazing project for her.

And no to Spanish, especially on HBO...

A mini series would be perfect, there's definitely enough content. Would probably interfere with SOB though

Watching Cocaine Cowboys 2 and seeing what a crazy evil bitch she was gets me so excited for this role. Really hope she kills it.


I don’t know. I think it will be more successful if it is in Spanish tbh. I don’t think Griselda spoke English... It would be very lame is Griselda speaks English in the movie IMO.

One of the reasons Narcos is so successful, is because it is (mostly) in Spanish. And “Babel” was also a very successful movie.

The question is: is Jennifer’s Spanish good enough? She will be alright, right? Maybe she should hang out with Sofia Vergara more often, so she could develop a Colombian accent lol.

Jen has never been really good with accent but with a Lot of work she might pull it off Griselda eventually learned English but if she also play the young Griselda that part should probably be in Spanish and then she should have a strong accent. I remember her saying that she wish she could do a movie all in Spanish but that that she didn't speak it well enough.

has HBO ever done a movie/tv show who was partly in Spanish ?

For the director I don't expect a big name more someone that worked a lot with Terrence Winter since he's not only the writer but also the executive producers, so looking at imdb you have Allen Coulter who directed episodes on all the shows he wrote, Vinyl, Broadwalk Empire and the Soprano + a couple of movies, but getting a good latino director would be great.

If they can't do a miniseries it should be a 2 parts movie .

Well then Jenny can brake down more barriers and have some Spanish content on HBO lol. I would assume they would have to throw in some Spanish in there with Griselda being Hispanic - but I doubt it will but mostly in Spanish. I assume the one Catherine did was in English, no?

Yeah, Lifetime's Cocaine Godmother is in English:



According to Lifetime, Griselda made her way to the U.S., at the age of 17. :interesting

But according to Wikipedia Griselda (born on 15 February 1943) moved to NYC in the 1970s.

Is Lifetime trying to rewrite history? :coffee

CZJ's accent reminds me of when Gina Gershon went full on Count Dracula while playing Donatella in her Versace Lifetime movie.

then it's possible, she'll need months of practice tho, if her accent isn't perfect in her songs not sure she can pull it iff for a movie
