See EPIX’s ‘Godfather of Harlem’ Cast in Our TCA Studio (PHOTOS)
The series, which is written and executive produced by Narcos‘ Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein, features an all-star cast including Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker, Giancarlo Esposito and Vincent D’Onofrio. Arriving this fall, the 10-episode drama centers on the story of the infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker) who in the early ’60s returned to Harlem after a 10-year prison stint only to find his neighborhood out of order.
In order to reclaim what’s his, Bumpy will have to battle the now-ruling Italian mob made up of the Genovese crime family. During this time, Bumpy forges a bond with preacher Malcolm X. The show brings together the two elements of the criminal world and civil rights movement.
In celebration, the stars appeared at the Television Critics Association Summer 2019 Press Tour where they stopped by the TV Insider portrait studio. Click through the gallery above to see the cast’s gorgeous photos.
