Plot Synopsis

KINGPIN is a two-hour documentary series that chronicles some of the most well-known names in the world of crime, and reveals how they began as unknown thugs and transformed into globally notorious kings of crime. Using archival footage and photographs and first-person interviews with experts, each episode focuses one of these four criminals:

Whitey Bulger (March 11, 2018): In the 1970s, the Boston underworld is in chaos. Dozens of Irish neighborhood gangs have spent decades brawling over turf, creating a power vacuum. But one Machiavellian foot soldier will scheme and kill his way through the ranks to become the most famous gangster in Boston history, leaving a unified Boston Irish Mob and the longest manhunt in U.S. history in his wake.

Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman (March 18, 2018): In the 1990s, three violent cartels battle for control of the Mexican drug world. But one brutally ambitious Narco will rise above the rest to create one unified cartel, and become the most powerful criminal in Mexico's history.
