Berlinale 2023: Giorgio Giampà scores ‘Star Original’ mafia series ‘The Good Mothers’

Set to premiere tomorrow (21 Feb) in competition at the BerlinaleSeries before coming out soon on Disney+!

This new Italian series The Good Mothers, offers a unique twist on the crime genre: this is the mafia seen entirely from the women’s perspectives. The series is a multifaceted, choral work that tells the true story of three women, raised within the fiercest and richest clans of ‘Ndrangheta. They decide to cooperate with a courageous magistrate working to destroy it from within. These women will then have to fight against their own families for the right to survive and build a new future for themselves and their children.

A Star Original for Disney+, the series is directed by BAFTA and Emmy nominee Julian Jarrold and Elisa Amoruso (Sirly, Chiara Ferragni: Unposted) and executive produced by Juliette Howell and Tessa Ross for House Productions (Brexit: The Uncivil War) and Mario Gianani and Lorenzo Gangarossa for Wildside, written by BAFTA Award-winning Stephen Butchard (Baghdad Central), and based on the gripping book by Foreign Press Association award-winning journalist Alex Perry.
