About the show
The Making of the Mob is an American historical documentary television series that bowed on AMC in June 2015. It is produced by Stephen David Entertainment and AMC Studios, narrated by Ray Liotta and executive produced by Stephen David. The second season premiered on July 11, 2016.
The first 8-part installment of the program portrayed the rise of organized mob in New York and the city’s own brand of gangsters, specifically focusing on notorious Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Vito Genovese, Bugsy Siegel, Frank Costello and their associates who instilled fear and influenced political decisions in and around the city for decades. The second season transports the audience to Depression-era Chicago, revolving around Al Capone’s biography from his early days in New York and subsequent move to Chicago. The show relies heavily on dramatic reconstruction of events, and adds interviews with historians, politicians, police officers and family members.
Ratings and renewal potential
Season 1 was a huge ratings success for AMC last summer with a 1.57 overall viewer average and a 0.41 demo rating in 18-49. The 8-part current season has a very positive 8.6/10 IMDb score, and is broadcast with an average of approximately 0.8 million viewers per episode and a 0.2 demo rating. It is not immediately clear why the 2016 averages are that much lower, but even the current numbers are still reasonable and may very well warrant another installment. Stay tuned and we will let you know if AMC chooses to make another chapter centered on this mesmerizing period in American history.
