AMC Mafia Docu-Drama to Debut This Summer

NEW YORK: AMC has announced a June 15 premiere for The Making of The Mob: New York, an eight-part docu-drama narrated by Emmy winner Ray Liotta.

Kicking off the network’s Mob Mondays, the special spans more than 50 years to trace the rise of the notorious gangsters who turned the Mafia into an American institution. AMC will also extend the Mafia theme by partnering each episode of the series with a lead-in from their extensive library of iconic mobster films such as The Godfather, The Godfather Part II and Goodfellas. Entertainment One handles international distribution for the series, which is executive produced by Stephen David.

“Narrating The Making of The Mob: New York is a thrill for me because I’m fascinated, like many, by the rich, untold history of these men and their strong ties to each other,” said Liotta. “Stephen David is a skilled storyteller and I’m happy to lend my voice to this series.”
