AMC’s documentary series “The Making of the Mob” explores the history of organized crime in 20th century America. Narrated by actor Ray Liotta, the first season premiered last year and focused on organized crime in New York City and follows famous gangster Lucky Luciano and his rise through the ranks. The series combines interviews with celebrities and experts in the field, archival footage, and dramatic recreations of key events to present a clear-eyed, thorough depiction of history.
Though the first season garnered mixed reviews, “The Making of the Mob” returned to AMC on July 11th this year to examine Chicago organized crime and the rise and fall of Al Capone. Ahead of the season finale tonight, watch three exclusive clips below. The first features mob bosses meeting with Joeseph Kennedy who asks them to secure union vote for JFK’s presidential election; the second depicts Robert Kennedy talking about cracking down on gangsters in Chicago; and the third examines how the mob was implicated/affected by JFK’s death.
This is the second documentary series AMC has aired this year. The other one is “The American West,” executive produced by Robert Redford, which chronicles Western legends in the years immediately following The Civil War.
The season finale airs tonight at 10pm Eastern only on AMC.
