The show had more than 20 million views in its first two weeks, and 10 million in its third week.

Vergara plays the titular role of Griselda Blanco, a notorious crime boss who was known as the “Cocaine Godmother” and ran a drug cartel between Colombia and the U.S. in the 1970s. The six-episode limited series is a fictionalized version of Blanco’s life. In addition to playing the lead role, Vergara was also an executive producer on the show.

It’s Vergara’s comeback role of sorts, after playing the much-loved Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s award-winning sitcom “Modern Family” for more than a decade. Vergara has been acting for over 30 years and is one of the highest-paid stars in the industry.

The 51-year-old actress has a net worth of about $180 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, thanks to her lucrative acting career and many business ventures, including a beauty brand, clothing line, endorsement deals, and more.
