Suburra is first fully-Italian production for Netflix.
The new television series Suburra, set in Rome, will become the first fully-Italian production on Netflix when it launches on 6 October.
The ten-part series is a spin-off of Stefano Sollima's 2015 film Suburra, inspired by the novel of the same name by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini.
The storyline, which has echoes of Rome's Mafia Capitale case, follows the murky collaboration between criminals, politicians and property speculators, all looking for their cut in a luxury real-estate development in the Ostia district along the capital's coastline.
The series, described by reviewers as "fast-paced" and "brutal", will be available with English subtitles in 190 countries.
