As part of its announcement of its new European original commissions for Disney+ Star, Disney has confirmed new mafia drama, The Good Mothers, from Brexit: The Uncivil War producer House Productions.

House Productions has teamed with Italian production company Wildside (We Are Who We Are) on the series.

The Good Mothers, offers a unique twist on the crime genre: this is the mafia seen entirely from the women’s perspectives. A Star Original for Disney+, the series is executive produced by Juliette Howell and Tessa Ross for House Productions (Brexit: The Uncivil War) and Mario Gianani and Lorenzo Gangarossa for Wildside, written by BAFTA Award-winning Stephen Butchard (Baghdad Central), and based on the gripping book by Foreign Press Association award-winning journalist Alex Perry.

The series follows the shocking true story of three women who were born into the most deadly and wealthy of the Italian mafia clans and how they worked with a courageous female prosecutor to bring it down. They must fight their own families for the right to survive and build a new future for their children.
