In this U.S. exclusive clip of Italy’s most popular crime drama, we see exactly what happens when mob rivalry turns personal. Set in Naples, “Gomorrah” focuses on the connection – and clash – between organized crime and ordinary citizens. The show has come out strong in its first few episodes with themes of rivalry, revenge, family, money, drugs, and betrayal.
The hugely popular show, which originally aired internationally in 2014, seems to be picking up speed in the U.S. During Part 3, Ciro (Marco d’Amore) takes a boat ride with Conte (Marco Palvetti) in an attempt to “make things right,” but there’s no going back when you mess with Conte’s family. When the outing goes south in a hurry, it looks like not everyone is guaranteed to make it back to shore.
The series is based on Roberto Saviano’s 2006 bestseller of the same name. The book was later adapted for film and won the Grand Prix prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008. SundanceTV has since acquired the first two seasons of the show and has been airing back-to-back episodes in the U.S. each week, beginning on Aug. 24.
SundanceTV plans to continue showing back-to-back episodes every Wednesday until it makes it through all 12 episodes of the show’s first season. You can catch two more episodes of “Gomorrah,” including this one, “The Roar of the Lioness,” on SundanceTV tonight at 10pm, and if you missed the first four episodes you can find them at sundance.tv.
