Sky Atlantic has released the first trailer for their new foreign-language drama Gomorrah, which is set to premiere on Monday August 4th at 9pm.
Based on the Robert Saviano book, Gomorrah is the inside story of fierce Neapolitan crime organisation the Camorra, as seen through the eyes of Ciro (Marco D’Amore), the obedient and self-confident right-hand man of the clan’s godfather whose loyalty is tested to its limits. The series was shot on location in and around Naples, Barcelona, Milan & Ferrara and directed by Stefano Sollima.
The drama is the first foreign language series that Sky Atlantic has acquired, after they laid the groundwork with bi-lingual drama The Tunnel, which was a co-production with French broadcaster Canal+. The series is produced for Sky Italia, the satcaster that BSkyB just acquired in a move to create a pan European broadcaster.
