The incredible true story of Charles Cosby and Griselda Blanco is now well-known, thanks to the documentary Cocaine Cowboys. Now, this same remarkable tale is being re-told in an even more compelling way with the documentary The Black Widow.

Charles Cosby was a cocaine dealer living on the streets of Oakland, California. His life was changed forever when he wrote a fan letter to Griselda Blanco – the infamous “Cocaine Godmother” serving time in a nearby federal prison. Six months later, Cosby had gone from struggling drug dealer to multi-millionaire businessman as head of Blanco’s multi-million dollar cocaine operation.

Blanco – dubbed “The Black Widow” due to her tendency to dispose of men when she was done with them – ensured that Cosby was faithful to her. Unfortunately for him, he quickly realised that he had bitten off more than he could chew.

This gritty and shocking story follows Cosby’s journey from street hustler to boss of one of the largest drug operations in history, and his turbulent and ultimately fatal relationship with the powerful Blanco. It is an astonishing tale that will leave you shook up in every way imaginable and questioning if there are any limits once money and power get involved.
