Rise of New York Mafia from 1905 to 1960

The rise of Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel
and other notorious gangsters.

As noted in January, AMC announced today that “The Making of The Mob: New York” will premiere on Monday, June 15th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, and be narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Ray Liotta.

Kicking off “Mob Mondays,” the eight-part series begins in 1905 and spans over 50 years to trace the rise of Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and other notorious gangsters from their beginnings as a neighborhood gang of teenagers to murderous entrepreneurs and bootleggers who organized the criminal underworld,  turning the Mafia into an American institution.


The premiere will air following a 25th Anniversary feature presentation of 1990s Oscar-winning film Goodfellas (Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci) at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. “The Making of The Mob: New York” is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning Stephen David Entertainment (“The World Wars,” “The Men Who Built America”).

“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.”



Utilizing an immersive blend of dramatic scenes, archival footage and groundbreaking VFX, “The Making of The Mob: New York” is AMC’s first ever docu-drama featuring exclusive interviews with notable names including former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Meyer Lansky II, Chazz Palminteri, Drea de Matteo, Joe Mantegna, Frankie Valli, Mob attorney and former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman and noted author and historian David Pietrusza, among many others.

As part of AMC’s “Mob Mondays,” AMC will extend the Mafia theme by partnering each episode of “The Making of The Mob: New York” with a lead-in from their extensive library of iconic mobster films.  Long the cornerstones of the popular annual “Mob Week” programming event on AMC, lead-in titles will include The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Goodfellas, American Gangster, Donnie Brasco, Scarface, Casino and Carlito’s Way.

  3. We had Lucky & Meyer, and you guys on the other side of the pond had the Kray Brothers!!! The Kray Brothers wouldn't have lasted one day in NYC or Montreal.

  5. And? Not quite sure where that came from is this a willy waving competition? ...You now have feckless wonders like Scarfo Jr. How you can compare lucky and lansky to the krays is fairly comical considering the differences in the way or working and the era's in which they both were operating at their peak, I suggest you go and do a bit of indepth reading on a subject before you form an opinion.... If you were to have any admiration for these kinds of people you'd have to pick up on the fact that the krays still did their own dirty work until the end, probably why they ended up being so successful and their downfall. If you think there is no OC in the UK simply because you don't hear about it in the media then you are very much mistaken, the UK media doesn't report it and the met refuse to acknowledge the problem they have combating it.The clerkenwell syndicate is still operating very profitably and under the radar.

  6. THERE WILL BE NO MORE MENTION OF SOME NOBODY ON A MESSAGE BOARD. I DON'T CARE WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT ME. FRANKLY I AM BEGINNING TO THINK SOME COMMENTS ARE HERE ARE FAKE AND THAT I'VE BEEN "HAD" BY GIVING SOME OF YOU THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. VENI, VIDI, VICE.... I AM TOO TIRED TO READ INTO EACH AND EVERY COMMENT BUT I AM AWARE OF CERTAIN POTENTIAL THINGS. LIKE PEOPLE MENTIONING A CERTAIN FICTIOUS ENTITY OVER AND OVER AGAIN, TELLING ME WHAT A JERK HE IS. I KNOW HE IS A JERK, WHOEVER HE IS. I AM SAYING IT NOW. NO MORE MENTION OF THAT GUY. AND IF YOU'VE BEEN WASTING, OH I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY HOURS OF YOUR LIFE POSTING FRAUDULENT COMMENTS AS A JOKE AMONG TWO OR THREE PEOPLE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STOP WASTING YOUR TIME.

  7. No kidding. All you did was show interest in the topic and this guy wants to redo the war of 1812? Frankly I'd love to know more about the Krays and the great train robbery and all that...... God knows Arden and Peter grant operated like gangsters and managed the biggest acts in the world in the process.... but I'm a hard core Anglophile.....

  10. You're right but it bothers me when someone claims that someone else posted personal info of a young woman who is with one of my sources and friends....

  11. Hoo boy! Fightin' words for sure! Haven't you ever heard the battle of New Orleans by Johnny Horton?

    Seriously though, I can think of one transatlantic mob story...when my favorite guitar player Steve Marriott from humble pie wanted his back royalties and his mob affiliated manager dee Anthony wouldn't give them to him, Steve had a sit down with John Gotti and maybe even Neil Dellacroce. When Steve left that meeting it was clear he wouldn't get crap....
