A dramatization of the lives of Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Siegel and composite character Michael Lasker, forces to be reckoned with in organized crime during the Prohibition era. NBC hoped that this ambitious mob drama would capitalize on the popularity of `The Godfather' films, but viewers weren't buying and the series was gone in three months.
