Season one of the exciting Italian TV series about the Neapolitan crime organization is coming to America!
Shot in Naples and “ugly in a good way”, the TV adaptation of Roberto Saviano’s book and Matteo Garrone’s award-winning film is Italy’s most popular TV show ever.
Naples’ major crime boss, Don Pietro Savastano orders his guys to kill a rival boss, and after a suicide mission to enemy headquarters produces more casualties than seem prudent, all hell breaks loose.
Vengeance, brutality, lawlessness plus the authenticity from Saviano’s expert technical advising combine to create great TV for anyone who loves crime shows, Mafia stories, or just Italy in general.
Gomorrah has all the appeal of shows like The Sopranos, but “Gomorrah is more realistic”, says journalist and author Beppe Severgnini. “The criminals aren’t glorified; there are no lovable monsters like Tony Soprano. Its story lines are fictional, but they draw on current events. With stunning camerawork, fast-paced tempos and well-written dialogue that rolls out in accurately rendered Neapolitan Italian, it is proof, if proof were needed, that Italians can turn out first-rate television.”
