Plot Synopsis

MAFIA'S GREATEST HITS is a one-hour series that chronicles the tales of true crime about the Mafia, its related underworld, and the FBI agents who tried to stop them. Each 60-minute episode features a different person associated with gangs, including: mobster Charles 'Lucky' Luciano, who made a deal with the U.S. government during World War II; FBI agent Joseph Pistone, who went under cover to infiltrate the world of organized crime as Donnie Brasco; mobster Sam Giancana, who was associated with the Kennedys, Frank Sinatra and the CIA; Joe Colombo, who took on the FBI in the '70s with his Italian-American Civil Rights League campaigning against harassment; mobster John Gotti, who became the boss of the Gambino family by ordering the death of the group's former head; enforcer Tony 'The Ant' Spilotro, who left dozens of bodies in his wake as he protected the Chicago Outfit's interests in Vegas casinos; mobster Vito Genovese, who dealt with disloyalty ruthlessly and rose through the Mafia ranks; criminal Carmine Galante, who took the Mob into the world of heroin -- even when he was locked up in jail; financier Allen Dorfman, who used union pension funds to bankroll the Mafia; informant Joe Valachi, who was the first Mafia member to break the Mob's code of silence and turn public informer; Roy DeMeo and his crew, who were suspected of killing dozens of people and dismembering their bodies; and many more criminals, informants, and members of law enforcement. Two years after initially premiering on UK's Yesterday cable channel, AHC: American Heroes Channel aired the U.S premiere of this series on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT.
On Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, AHC: American Heroes Channel aired the U.S. premiere of the second season of MAFIA'S GREATEST HITS. The season opener features Arnold 'The Brain' Rothstein, who schooled the founders of the American Mafia in the ways of organized crime during the 1920s and set the model for running crime business. Infamous for fixing the 1919 World Series, he was the criminal genius behind a bootleg empire.
