Studio: Paramount
Genre: Documentary, Television, Biographies, Political & Social Issues, Crime, Capers, Cops, Crime TV, Gangsters, Crime TV

Ving Rhames narrates this documentary series that explores the lives of nine African-American criminal masterminds and their rise to power. With an eye toward the facts, and the impact on communities, AMERICAN GANGSTER offers an unromantic, yet always fascinating, look at these complicated individuals. Among those examined here are Crip co-founder "Tookie" Williams, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and convicted killer; L.A. crack kingpin Ricky Ross, and his connection to the Iran-Contras scandal; and jewel thieves Troy and Dino Smith, who scored the biggest heist in San Francisco history. Collected here are all six episodes of the fascinating first season.
