McMafia, an eight-part series set in the international world of organised crime will screen in Australia on Amazon.
The drama, produced for the BBC and AMC, is created by Hossein Amini (47 Ronin, Wings of a Dove) and James Watkins (Black Mirror, Bastille Day), inspired by the book of the same title by Misha Glenny.
It tells the story of Alex Godman (James Norton), an English-raised son of Russian exiles with a mafia history, who has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of that criminal past. As he starts building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend Rebecca (Juliet Rylance), his family’s past murderously returns to threaten them.
An airdate is yet to be announced.
