Netflix has dropped the trailer for Suburra: The Series, the first Italian series production for the streaming giant.
Set to capitalise on the buzz of Narco‘s third season, which we loved, Suburra will be delivering drama based on the real-life clashes that occurred between Italian organised crime, local gangs, the Church, government and real estate developers.
Italian production shingle Cattleya has previously delivered hit crime-drama outings such as Gomorrah and Romanzo Criminale (Crime Novel) to the screen. And as with Gomorrah, Suburra: The Series comes after a hit film of the same name. The show will also be based on the book of the same name by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini, although it will be set a few years prior to the film’s events.
It looks like a pretty classy production. If Narcos is anything to go by, there is no shortage of jaw-dropping plot developments that can be taken from real-life crime sagas. Netflix could have another hit here.
All 10 episodes of Suburra: The Series, which has a cast that includes Francesco Acquaroli, Alessandro Borghi, Adamo Dionisi, Giacomo Ferrara, Claudia Gerini, Filippo Nigro and Eduardo Valdarnini, will hit Netflix on October 6.
