Bad Blood (City) – Premieres 21st September
Mafia drama that’s based on the true story of Montreal mob boss Vito Rizzuto. Set in 2006, ten years after uniting the rival gangs in the area to create a drug distribution ring, the FBI are hunting down Vito for a murder he committed in 1981 while a rival group from New York are trying to break up Vitos syndicate.
As this is going on Vito puts into place the plan to legitimise his businesses and leave his son as the face to the soon-to-be legal empire. This goes awry when Vito is arrested, leaving a vacancy that his son places himself into leaving Vitos second-in-command a wee bit miffed.
As mob dramas go it sort of has a Sons of Anarchy feel to it all with the acting and dialogue, and while it goes along at a decent pace it doesn’t really do too much to make you want to keep watching.
