"An engrossing drama." -Tim Grierson, TheWrap.com

"For those who like mafia shows and the sort of anti-hero dramas that have become the stock in trade of "peak TV", this is another excellent entry."-Brian Moylan, TheGuardian.com

"'Gomorrah' is riveting from the first to twelfth episodes, with engaging characters and a plot to keep audiences tuning in week after week."- Truby Chiavello, Primo Magazine

Two all new episodes of the acclaimed Italian crime series "Gomorrah" air Wednesday, September 7 at 10/9C. Leading in to the episodes, SundanceTV will present fan-favorite action thriller, "Die Hard," at 7:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. C. The film stars Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia.

"Gomorrah," Italy's most popular television series of all time, is based on the best-selling book by journalist Roberto Saviano. The novel has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and inspired the film Gomorrah, which won the 2008 Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. SundanceTV acquired seasons one and two from The Weinstein Company.

Each week, SundanceTV will feature two back-to-back episodes of the twelve installment season. In Part 3, "The Roar of the Lioness," Imma must take care of the family business. She convinces Genny to go on a mission to the clan's drug-trafficking sources in Honduras, while Ciro is sent to negotiate a truce with Conte.

Set in the suburbs of Naples, the series focuses on the inside story of the Camorra, the fierce Neapolitan crime organization, told through the eyes of Ciro Di Marzio (Marco D'Amore), the right hand of the clan's godfather, Pietro Savastano (Fortunato Cerlino). Produced by Sky Atlantic, Cattleya and Fandango in association with La7 and Beta Film, "Gomorrah" is written by Stefano Bises and directed by Stefano Sollima, Francesca Comencini and Claudio Cupellini. The series was developed for television by Giovanni Bianconi, Stefano Bises, Leonardo Fasoli, Ludovica Rampoldi and Roberto Saviano.
