Plot Synopsis

Throughout the 1970s and '80s, the Five Families of the New York mafia -- Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese and Luccese -- held a powerful, and seemingly insurmountable, grip on the city. This three-part docuseries details the story of the history-making organized crime investigation and prosecution case brought against New York's most formidable mob bosses. Through interviews with dozens of law enforcement officials, ex-mafia associates and others, FEAR CITY: NEW YORK VS. THE MAFIA sheds light on how the mafia's control of unions, high-rise construction and other industries netted billions for organized crime. Previously unheard surveillance recordings, news footage and archival material alongside new interviews and reenactments paint a shocking and captivating portrait of this "Golden Era of the Mob." Netflix released all three episodes of FEAR CITY: NEW YORK VS. THE MAFIA on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
