A&E Network announced a special two-night event premiering an original “Biography” documentary “GOTTI: Godfather & Son” on June 9 and June 10. The story of father and son raised in the mob, John Gotti Jr. shares an intimate account of the rise and fall of the Gambino crime family and his last visit with his dying father, John Gotti Sr.
“The narrative spine of the documentary is never-before-seen segments from a 90-minute video of the last visit between a dying John Gotti Sr. and his son at the United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield, MO. It was during this meeting that John Gotti Jr., asked his father for his blessing to take the unprecedented steps of quitting what might have been one of the last of the major mafia dynasties,” says the A&E press release.
The four hour, two-part documentary gives viewers a first-hand look into the family’s story from John Gotti Jr. and other people who lived it as well, including some rare family photos in the Gotti archive. “GOTTI: Godfather & Son” will premiere on Saturday, June 9 at 10PM ET/PT and Sunday, June 10 at 9PM ET/PT on A&E.
