After AMC says goodbye to Don Draper and the 1960s, the network will welcome an earlier American era to the small screen. Narrated by Ray Liotta, The Making of the Mob: New York will delve into and reenact the rise of notorious gangsters like Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, along with their Five Families.
Mob is AMC’s first “docu-drama,” or a documentary-style series that uses archival footage, cinematic visual effects, and interviews with former city mayors, historians, and actors who have brought the Mafia to life on screen. (Think Boardwalk Empire, but with a dash of Ken Burns.) Each episode will also be paired with the airing of a classic mobster film, including The Godfather trilogy and Goodfellas.
