American Justice: Pizza Connection
An international scandal involving drugs, murder, and one of the most powerful Mafia families in the world wraps up in A&E's American Justice: Pizza Connection. It all began with the killing of crime boss Carmine Galanta in a New York restaurant. His death cleared the way for mobsters from Sicily to take over the city's high-profit heroine trade. Before long, the operation spread all across the country with money being laundered through pizza shops and strip malls. As federal agencies carried out a five-year investigation, they discovered that the multi-billion-dollar ring was led by Gaetano Badalamenti and involved Mafia in Switzerland, Turkey, Italy, and Brazil. When the government finally had enough evidence to arrest the men, they were able to try 21 defendants. The evidence for conviction was overwhelming and included a hundred thousand phone calls, hundreds of videos, and thousands of financial records. Now famous personality Donnie Brasco was a star witness. A&E takes viewers into the courtroom for a closer look at the people behind the Mafia trial of the century. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
