Recall that the TV series is based on real events that took place in America in the 60s.
10 years after Bumpy went to prison, huge changes took place in Harlem. Part of the streets is under the control of Italian mafiosi, while earlier these streets belonged only to Bumpy. Having fame among criminals and police, Johnson tries to restore order in his possessions, but almost immediately falls under the wrath of opponents.
His first and most desperate enemy is Vincent Gigante, nicknamed “The Chin”. The man behaves aggressively, he is not ready to give up his own territory and is constantly threatening to strike at Bumpy’s relatives. Seeing such a reaction from the enemy, Johnson decides to tighten his family’s security even more, but his wife is too obstinate to tolerate this.
Daughter Margaret, on the contrary, tries to support all her father’s undertakings, but thanks to her young age, it is difficult for her to divide the world into gray shades, as her parents do. Margaret sees only the good and the bad, black and white. In her opinion, the father does not do anything terrible, he is only haunted by terrible people. The girl adores parents and is always ready to help a bored father.
Bumpy understands that he has lost his former greatness, but the makings of a ruler still remain in him. He calls for joining him the politician Adam Clayton Powell, who was able to build a good career in the last 10 years. Another Bumpy supporter is a black preacher, whose popularity is growing at an incredible rate.

The factions are fighting for power, Bumpy is trying to once again take the place of head of Harlem, and Vincent is convinced that Johnson is too old to manage the whole city. Who can prove their superiority in this battle? Who can handle the huge share of New York in the teeth? When will the new murders end, so disturbing Bumpy’s wife?

- Vincent D’Onofrio was one of the last to join the crew. Having a colorful appearance, he often plays similar roles. The most memorable was his participation in the series “Daredevil“, where for several seasons he played a madly in love antagonist and the main enemy of Murdoch.
- For Demi Singleton, the role was debut. The girl had long dreamed of getting on a television screen, and participation in such a project only increased her chances of a successful career. The series has excellent ratings, so it is likely that other creators will notice the talent of the young actress.
- Guillermo Navarro became one of the directors of the series. He previously worked on the TV series “Narcos“, which focused on drugs and the most famous drug lord in the history of Pablo Escobar. The magnificent picture immediately pleased the audience, so Guillermo decided to take part in another project on drugs, banditry and crime.
- Every year Forest Whitaker has less and less desire to act in such projects, but his image does not allow getting rid of the selected cliche. The critical squint that the actor possesses makes him look like a bandit. Without even being in the image, Forest resembles a criminal authority who has long led a gang of criminals.
