Investigation Discovery's I MARRIED A MOBSTER provides an insider's perspective into the reality of New York mafia families from the first-person point-of-view of the Mrs. I MARRIED A MOBSTER sits down with women and family members who lived the fast-paced lifestyle on the inside of organized crime. Each woman shares the wild ride from how her relationship blossomed to the realities of living the high life and her family's eventual downfall as authorities locked up her loved ones, and maybe even her.

The series is paired with the second-season debut of Investigation Discovery's hit series WHO THE (BLEEP) DID I MARRY?

Linda Schiro, a beautiful Brooklyn teen, finds herself in a love triangle with two made men. Both want her for their own despite each already having a wife, so it's up to the Colombo crime family to name the better man. Greg Scarpa, one of the most feared mafia enforcers, takes home the prize, and as the couple's relationship blossoms, they live a life of romance, danger, mystery, and trust.

Meet the Famas

Wednesday, August 3 at 10:30 PM ET

After marrying Barbara, a gal from his Brooklyn neighborhood, Joe Fama aspires to get out of his blue-collar gig and into the high-stakes game of organized crime and gambling. Their luck becomes fleeting when Joe begins dealing drugs to cover mounting debts. Barbara and their daughter, Toni, turn a blind eye while enjoying the extravagant lifestyle Joe provides for them, until Toni develops a cocaine habit and Federal Agents make a house call.

Additional episodes yet to be scheduled include:

Daddy's Little Girl

Like her mother Linda Schiro, anyone who crosses Greg Scarpa's darling daughter, "Little" Linda Scarpa, will have to answer to the Grim Reaper himself. A Colombo captain and one of the most feared hit men in modern mafia history, Greg's eye is constantly trained on Linda and anyone who dares to harm her. However, danger does not elude Linda and she is drawn into the crossfire of the Colombo family war. The body count hits close to home as Greg realizes there are forces stronger than a father's love.

Working Mom

Most mafia wives turn a blind eye while enjoying the spoils of their husbands' illicit activities. One Staten Island wife, however, couldn't settle for being a mere accessory. Not only did Andrea Giovino closely follow the risky behavior of her mob husband, John Fogerty, but she literally may have blood on her hands. With the FBI knocking at her door, Andrea must decide whether to give herself up or turn her back on the mafia at risk of death.

Love Hurts

Through Staten Island mob daughters like herself, Love Majewski meets Chris Paciello, a member of the Bonanno crime family, as well as Ray Merolle's "The Untouchables," the car-theft operation that inspired "Gone in 60 Seconds." When Chris grows abusive, Love asks for Ray's protection, becoming at once his personal property and accomplice to theft. Chris moves to Miami, but is eventually arrested for murdering a porn king's wife, while Ray is convicted of more than 100 counts back in Staten Island. This leaves Love to live her life in limbo, trying to date normal guys but never fully escaping the FBI's radar.

No Way Out

Angela Calvacante grew up in Howard Beach, NY, where wise guys and trouble lurk around every corner. Despite relocating to nearby Maspeth to escape her mob ties, she soon falls for Sal, the son of Nick "The Baron" Bonina of the high-ranking Luchese crime family. She can't believe the past has caught up with her, but Sal becomes violent and corners her with an offer she can't refuse: his hand in marriage. When Angela attempts to break free from the family's iron grip, the domestic dispute erupts.
