Gomorrah: Season One Season 1, Ep 1
Gomorrah is a television crime drama series set in the suburbs of Naples focusing on the bloody feuding of organised crime syndicates operated by the Camorra. Unlike the Sicilian Mafia the Camorra crime families do not have a hierarchicial structure, instead they vie among themselves for control of the narcotic supply chain and for vital dealing territories in Naples. Set largely in the notorious Neapolitan suburb of Scampia (home to the catastrophic, yet brutally picturesque, social housing project the Vele di Scampia) Gomorrah is based on true-life events and is notable for the relentless pace of its compelling plot, rich character development, and complete lack of sympathetic protagonists. This last feature is no surprise to those familiar with the show's provenance. Roberto Saviano, who wrote the series' eponymous non-fiction polemic exposing the staggering depravity of the Camorra and their depressing reach into every corner of Italian society, has lived in hiding since the book's publication and is one of the series' executive producers.
