SEASON TWO OF THE ACCLAIMED ITALIAN CRIME SERIES
"GOMORRAH" DEBUTS ON SUNDANCE TV WITH A TWO-HOUR PREMIERE
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26 AT 10/9C
SundanceTV will launch season two of the acclaimed Italian crime series, "GOMORRAH" on Wednesday, April 26 at 10/9C with two back-to-back episodes. Italy's most popular television series of all time, "GOMORRAH" is based on the best-selling book by journalist Roberto Saviano. The novel has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and inspired the film Gomorrah, which won the 2008 Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. In the first two episodes, "United States of Secondigliano/Exile" Ciro and Genny organize a meeting on neutral ground in Montenegro. Although the Savastano clan continues to stay divided, Ciro knows better than to underestimate them. Genny's old men organize a robbery, but when things go south, he is forced to sacrifice a portion of the Savastano turf and break his father's trust.
Based on the book by Roberto Saviano, "GOMORRAH" picks up moments after the end of the first season: Pietro has escaped from the prison van; Genny's boys have been downed in Conte's ambush; and Ciro has shot Genny. The era of the Savastano clan, which once reigned supreme over Naples, seems to be definitively over, and many compete for what was once the Savastano Empire. Only one thing is certain: the future will belong to the one who can tighten the bonds of power most forcefully. Produced by Sky Atlantic, Cattleya and Fandango in association with La7 and Beta Film, "GOMORRAH" is written by Stefano Bises and directed by Stefano Sollima, Francesca Comencini and Claudio Cupellini.
