The BBC's new production on organized crime, 'McMafia', is based on the best-selling non-fiction film McMafia. The crime without borders, by the British journalist Misha Glenny. In the book, Glenny analyzes the global connections of organized crime and how they connect with political decisions.
The series is starring by Alex Godman (James Norton), an English son of Russian exiles with a mafia past with which he has dealt all his life. Despite all his attempts to escape the shadow of his father and to lead a normal life with his girlfriend Rebecca (Juliet Rylance), Alex must confront his past and deal with all kinds of mobsters.
Faye Marsay (Love Nina) and the acclaimed Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov ('Leviathan') as Dimitri, Alex's father, are also part of the cast of the series created by Hossein Amini ('Drive') and James Watkins ('The woman in black ').
The first episode of 'Mc Mafia' premiered in Spain last January, through Amazon Prime Video; the new episodes are broadcast through this platform on Wednesdays.
