Documentary, Crime / TV-Series (2020)
Five Mafia families ruled New York with a bloody fist in the 1970s and ’80s, until a group of federal agents tried the unthinkable: taking them down.
Fear City, which comes from the producers of another Netflix true crime doc, Don’t F**k With Cats, tells the story of the New York Mafia’s “Five Families” — Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese and Luccese — and the FBI investigation to bring them down.
Netflix describes the three-part series as “the inside story of the rise and fall of New York’s most powerful Mafia families and the end of the golden era of the Mob. With the full might of the FBI and an army of undercover agents, witness the bugging, the investigation, and the era-defining conclusion of the historic Mafia Commission Trial that changed everything.”
Storyline: Families; Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese, Luccese
