BY David Hinckley NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Saturday, January 10, 2015, 2:16 PM Daily News The new AMC docudrama ‘Making of the Mob’ will track the rise of the New York mob and its most prominent members, including Charles (Lucky) Luciano (pictured). PASADENA – Only months after they rode into the TV sunset on “Boardwalk Empire,” the superstars of New York criminal history will return in a muscular new AMC series called “Making of the Mob: New York.” Welcome back, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, Frank Costello and pals. The eight-part production will debut this summer, AMC president Charlie Collier said here Saturday, and will be a hi-tech mix of scripted drama, documentary footage and cutting-edge special effects. There will be commentary from descendants of several subjects, as well as actors like Joe Mantegna and Drea de Matteo. It is produced by Steven David, who has made his name through sprawling, big-story hybrid productions like “The Men Who Made America” and the upcoming “Sons of Liberty.” The story tracks the rise of the New York mob, starting in 1905 and continuing through the rise of the Five Families organized by Luciano. It finishes some 50 years later, by which time their organization had been called “the biggest criminal enterprise in American history” by foes like New York District Attorney Thomas Dewey.
