Making of The Mob: New York is a special event miniseries chronicling the historical roots of the original Five Families, that will follow the rise of Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and other notorious gangsters from their beginnings as a neighborhood gang of teenagers to becoming the murderous entrepreneurs and bootleggers who turned the Mafia into an American institution.

As the boss of the Luciano family for twenty years, Frank Costello wielded immense power while taking an understated approach to business. Costello preferred discussion and deal-making to confrontation and score-settling. Intelligent and engaging, he cultivated close relationships within entities that could impede the smooth operation of mob business: the police department, the judiciary, the district attorney’s office, and most importantly, Tammany Hall, home of New York’s Democratic political machine. Dispensing bribes and favors as he saw fit, Costello bought protection, influence and smooth operations for himself and his colleagues, who dubbed him “Prime Minister of the Underworld.”
