DESCRIPTION:
(from ReelzChannel's press release, January 2016) When Hollywood wants a jarring story about high-profile criminals, fictional tales are never as juicy as the true stories of the most notorious criminals brought to justice by the U.S. government. Take the example of Demetrius and Terry Flenory who founded the nefarious, multi-million dollar organization Black Mafia Family (BMF) with ties to the entertainment industry via BMF Entertainment which backed rappers including Young Jeezy. More recently, the story of the Black Mafia Family has attracted rapper and actor 50 Cent who is developing a movie based on the shady organization's history. Then there's Cheng Chui Ping (Sister Ping) whose story received big-screen treatment in 2014's Revenge of the Green Dragons which was executive produced by Hollywood heavyweight Martin Scorsese. The movie tells the true story of the Snakeheads, an international human smuggling gang, and features a character based on renowned smuggler Sister Ping. From thugs to lethal beauties, outlaws to kingpins, each episode profiles these gangsters and reveals their ominous motives and the circumstances that eventually led to their downfall. The premiere episode on Tuesday, January 19 features a storyline that reads like a movie script for a blockbuster crime thriller. James Spencer Springette, known as "Jimmy the Juice", went from selling juice to tourists on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to distributing thousands of kilos of cocaine into the United States. Find out how he found himself on the FBI's top ten list of most wanted fugitives right next to Osama bin Laden. Gangsters: America's Most Evil is produced by Asylum Entertainment.
