The Sopranos was an American drama series by director / writer David Chase about the Italian-American mafia in New Jersey. Lead roles are played by James Gandolfini, Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco, among others.
This series is about the daily life of mafia boss Tony Soprano. Not only the violent mafia environment, family and love troubles also play a major role in the series.
That combination and the clever dialogues make the Sopranos a series that is hardly comparable to any other television series or film. The series has been awarded many times in the United States, has been broadcast there since 1999 by the pay channel HBO and in the Netherlands by the VARA (Netherlands 3). In Flanders, the series is broadcast by Canvas.
