Michael is the youngest son of Griselda Blanco, the notorious Cocaine Godmother who ran the streets of Miami until her assassination in 2012. Blanco is rumored to have taken her first victim at just 11 years old and murdered close to 200 people. Despite his mother's bloody past, Michael is determined to create a new reputation for the Blanco name. After spending time in jail for drug-related crimes, he and his baby mama Marie started a lifestyle brand called Pure Blanco. Michael is trying to make legit money, but staying straight is hard for a man who is used to making $20K before breakfast.
Marie was no stranger to the cartel life before she met Michael. Her parents both went to prison when Marie was a child, but even with their stints in prison, her family disapproves of her relationship with Griselda Blanco's son. Marie has given up everything for the man she loves and is devoted to Pure Blanco despite the fact that Michael refuses to make her a legit business partner -- and maybe for good reason, as Marie has a few secrets in her past that may shock even the unflappable Michael.

Nicole is daddy's little princess and in return is given everything she ever wants, including multiple plastic surgery procedures, cars, shoes -- the list goes on. She's both fascinated by and ignorant of the cartel life. Despite growing up excessively wealthy, she has never felt the need to know how deep her family runs in the cartel. While she hasn't lost close family members to Miami's drug trade, she has fought her own personal battles; she overcame severe bullying and now tries to make other girls as confident as she is with two of her own "legit" businesses (a waist trainer line and an eyelash line). She knows she is hot stuff and isn't afraid to flaunt the confidence it took her years of surgery to get. In her own words, she's "the hottest thing walking right now -- you're welcome!"
