As Netflix’s first Italian original series, Suburra will hit the streaming platform a little later this year, with the official date for the show’s premiere revealed as October 6, 2017. The news was announced in a short video that also gives a first glimpse look into the series’ world, which you can see below:
The show looks to be a crime thriller like none other. Set in Rome, it describes how the Church, State and organised crime collide, blurring the lines between the legal and illicit as each hunt for power.
Three young men are at the heart of the story; Numero 8 (Alessandro Borghi), Spadino (Giacomo Ferrara) and Lele (Eduardo Valdarnini). Each have different backgrounds, goals and passions, but will be forced to work together if they’re to realise their deepest desires.
Directed by Michele Placido, Andrea Molaili and Giuseppe Capotondi, the show also stars Claudia Gerini as Sara Monaschi, Filippo Nigro as Amedeo Cinaglia, Francesco Acquaroli as Samurai and Adamo Dionisi as Manfredi Anacleti.
Based on the novel of the same name, but taking place several years before the events on those pages, Suburra will tell the story of 20 days of turmoil across 10 action-packed episodes.
Suburra officially hits Netflix on October 6, 2017.
