"Making of the Mob: New York" is a TV miniseries on AMC that chronicles the historical roots of the original Five Families that led to the formation of the modern American Mafia.

The series will also feature interviews with historians, authors, actors, law enforcement personnel and family members, including actors Joe Mantegna and Drea de Matteo; Mob attorney and former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman; author David Pierusza, who is an expert on Lucky Luciano's criminal mentor Arnold Rothstein; and Meyer Lansky's grandson, Meyer Lansky II, among others.

The cast for the dramatic scenes includes Ian Bell as Meyer Lansky, John Stewart Jr. as Bugsy Siegel, Rich Graff as Lucky Luciano, Anthony DiCarlo as Frank Costello and Craig Rivela as Vito Genovese.

"Making of The Mob: New York" is produced by Emmy Award-winning Stephen David Entertainment ("The World Wars," "The Men Who Built America") and executive produced by Stephen David, with Eliot Goldberg and Marco Bresaz overseeing for the network.
