Godfather of Harlem (EPIX) -- S: Forest Whitaker, Giancarlo Esposito, Vincent D'Onofrio -- 9/29/19



Written and executive produced by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein (Narcos), the ten-episode series will star Oscar® winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) who will also executive produce through his company Significant Productions. Godfather of Harlem is inspired by the story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker), who in the early 1960s returned from ten years in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control. During the brutal battle, he forms an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X – catching Malcolm’s political rise in the crosshairs of social upheaval and a mob war that threatens to tear the city apart. Godfather Of Harlem is a collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement during one of the most tumultuous times in American history. The series also stars Vincent D’Onofrio (Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Daredevil), Ilfenesh Hadera (She’s Gotta Have It, Baywatch), Nigél Thatch (Selma, American Dreams), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), Lucy Fry (Bright, Vampire Academy), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes at Night, Mudbound) and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy.










This looks awesome and premieres in a few weeks on EPIX. Great cast. I have EPIX Now and I look forward to seeing this.

Is this the same character that Denzel played in American Gangster? Too lazy to Google

He's playing the same character Laurence Fishburne played in Hoodlum, but an older version.
