Anthony LaPaglia (Riviera, Without a Trace) and KimCoates (Sons of Anarchy) star in a gritty new thriller based on the true story of notorious Mafia boss, Vito Rizzuto. Written by Simon Barry (Van Helsing, Continuum) and Michael Konyves (Barney's Version), this suspenseful six-part series is directed by Alain Desrochers (Security, Nitro Rush).Before Vito Rizzuto was jailed for the murders of three Bonanno crime family members in 2006, he ruled the Port of Montreal -the northern gateway to America's drugs market. A master diplomat, he won the respect of rival Mafia clans and street gangs. Ably supported by his first lieutenant Declan (Coates), his criminal business thrived on his turf, his family prospered and his empire grew until he found himself behind bars. This hard-hitting new drama follows the incredible story of his incarceration and release. Languishing in prison, Rizzuto (LaPaglia) watches on helplessly as the burgeoning criminal empire he built slowly begins to crumble and his family and closest friends are mysteriously murdered one by one. Desperate to fight back, Rizzuto can't wait for his release and when he finally walks free, an epic Shakespearean revenge plays out, which devastating consequences for everyone involved. Telling the story of one of North America's most infamous underworld figures, Bad Blood is inspired by organised crime experts Peter Edwards and Antonio Nicaso's bestselling book, "Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto's Last War".
