NEW YORK, NY – April 10, 2015 – AMC announced today that “The
Making of The Mob: New York” will premiere on Monday, June 15th at 10:00
p.m. ET/PT, and be narrated by Emmy® Award-winning actor Ray Liotta.
Kicking off “Mob Mondays,” the eight-part series begins in 1905 and spans
over 50 years to trace the rise of Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky,
Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and other notorious gangsters from their
beginnings as a neighborhood gang of teenagers to murderous
entrepreneurs and bootleggers who organized the criminal underworld,  
turning the Mafia into an American institution.  The premiere will air following
a 25th Anniversary feature presentation of 1990s Oscar®-winning film
Goodfellas (Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci) at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. “The
Making of The Mob: New York” is executive produced by Emmy® Award-
winning Stephen David Entertainment (“The World Wars,” “The Men Who
Built America”).

"Narrating ‘The Making of The Mob: New York’ is a thrill for me because I'm
fascinated, like many, by the rich, untold history of these men and their strong
ties to each other,” said Liotta. “Stephen David is a skilled storyteller and I'm
happy to lend my voice to this series."

Utilizing an immersive blend of dramatic scenes, archival footage and
groundbreaking VFX, “The Making of The Mob: New York” is AMC’s first
ever docu-drama featuring exclusive interviews with notable names including
former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Meyer Lansky II, Chazz Palminteri, Drea

Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman and noted author and historian

As part of AMC’s “Mob Mondays,” AMC will extend the Mafia theme by
