A new mafia-focused TV series is on its way from the creators of some of entertainment’s most iconic depictions of organized crime.
Terence Winter and Nicholas Pileggi are teaming up to executive produce the project. Winter served as a writer and producer for both The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire, while Pileggi co-wrote Goodfellas and Casino with director Martin Scorsese (and wrote the books both films are based on – Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family and Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas respectively). Pileggi also executive produced Scorsese’s The Irishman – and Winter wrote the screenplay for another Scorsese feature, The Wolf of Wall Street.
The series will be produced by Showtime and Imagine Television Studios, with Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey also executive producing.
While no plot details have been released yet, it’s thought that the series will be based on Pileggi’s detailed chronology of organized crime in the US, with the mafia’s First Family as the central focus.
The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire are available to stream on HBO Max now with a 7 day free trial. You can also catch The Irishman on Netflix with a 30 day free trial.
