The British Crime drama series debuts on SABC3
09:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Inspired by the insider interviews in Misha Glenny’s bestselling book and featuring a star-studded international cast, this fast-paced thriller exposes the connections behind a global network of organized crime. McMafia will be broadcast Thursdays 4th April at 21:30 on SABC 3.
For Alex Godman, the privileged British raised son of an exiled Russian mafia boss, family is everything - except when it comes to business. Having resisted his family’s dark ties to organised crime, Alex owns a legitimate City firm and is building a life with his ethically-driven girlfriend Rebecca. But when a deadly power struggle threatens the lives of those he loves, he’s forced to decide how far he’s prepared to go to protect them.
As Alex is drawn deeper into the crime world, this glamorous and gritty drama unravels a complex web of connections that joins up money launderers in Dubai, cyber criminals in India, Russian oligarchs in London and Bedouin smugglers in the Negev desert.
What starts out as a story of survival and revenge evolves into an epic tale of a man’s struggle against the lures of corruption.
