3 Must-Watch European Mafia Series

Celebrating the airing of the new Eurochannel exclusive series, Mafia Undercover, we have selected three mafia-themed European series that nobody should miss. These stories will make you crave for more action and productions of the genre!

Peaky Blinders

Primarily set in Birmingham, England in the aftermath of World War I, Peaky Blinders follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family. Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Dunkirk) plays Tommy Shelby, the gang's leader, and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Event Horizon) as Chester Campbell is a commissioned detective from Belfast who is tasked with suppressing the gang.

The series has won numerous awards, including a BAFTA Television Award for Best Drama Series, and has been extended for five seasons.

McMafia

Also a British series, McMafia is inspired by the book McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld (2008) by award-winning journalist, Misha Glenny. The series follows Alex Godman, the British-raised son of a Russian mafia boss living in London whose father is trying to escape from the world of organized crime.

McMafia became one of the most expensive TV series in the UK, with a budget of several million pounds per episode and filming locations that included London, Zagreb, Split, Opatija, Qatar, Mumbai, Prague, Cairo, Belgrade, Belize, Istanbul, Moscow, and Tel Aviv.

Gomorrah

Set in Naples, this Italian crime drama was created by the award-winning journalist and writer Roberto Saviano, based on his same-titled book. Gomorrah follows the story of Ciro di Marzio, a member of the Savastano clan, headed by Pietro Savastano, a high-ranking drug lord, whose goal is to safely traverse a dangerous world of crime even as he fights a savage civil war.

Praised by the audiences and critics around the world, the series has been renewed for a fourth season.
