Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Chazz Palminteri, Valuetainment announced that the series “Mafia States of America” will be released in the fall. According to the trailer, Patrick Bet-David’s interviews with Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, Michael, Franzese, and Rudy Giuliani, are all real. “This is not a movie. There is no script…this is the real Cosa Nostra.”
Patrick Bet-David, the founder of Valuetainment, has a knack for getting even the most tight-lipped people to open up. His cutting-edge interviews with Mobsters have been viewed more than 100 million times on YouTube. Two years ago, he proposed an idea that seemed impossible: get two of the most notorious Made Men of the Mafia, Sammy “the Bull” Gravano and Michael Franzese to sit down, face-to-face, for several days.
If that wasn’t enough, he also wanted to hear the reaction from the man who prosecuted them, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The idea seemed as preposterous as it was unrealistic. The Mafia, also known as La Cosa Nostra, is built on secrecy and is characterized by the code “Omertà.” Gravano and Franzese had secrets they would take to their graves.
Patrick Bet-David had other ideas.
After two years of intense negotiations, Bet-David convinced both men to agree to a sit-down. One of the conditions was that the location could not be revealed. With heavy security, and with only Bet-David between them, the notorious Mobsters squared off. There were accusations, threats, and even a few laughs. By the end, Bet-David got both men to reveal details of the Mafia that have never been discussed.
