Those who lived it and those who tried to kill it reveal in eye-opening detail the world of the U.S. Mafia. Former mobsters -- some speaking on camera for the first time -- informants and FBI agents expose the empire of the deadly, corrupt and unforgiving crime ring that gripped America for decades. Each episode examines a pivotal time frame that began in the 1970s and led to the present, and each makes use of recently declassified files, first-person accounts and archival clips, relating a roller coaster of violence, loyalty and wealth. Mobsters talk about the true meaning of La Cosa Nostra and what tricks they used to stay alive, while law enforcement officials offer rare details of dangerous undercover operations, highlighted by an in-depth interview with FBI legend Joe Pistone, whose five-year infiltration of the Bonanno crime family changed the mob forever.

As an executive producer on "The Shield" and the creator of "Sons of Anarchy," Kurt Sutter has spent a good part of his adulthood writing about fictitious anti-heroes, the kind of guys he became fascinated with while relentlessly watching TV as a kid. "We all love the guys in black," he says. Spearheaded by Sutter's insight, "Outlaw Empires" presents stories of real American outlaws -- gangs and families who have ruled the streets with a heavy hand and without sympathy. Each hourlong episode tells the complete history of a notorious crime ring, from the Crips in Los Angeles to biker gangs to the Italian Mafia and the Aryan Brotherhood, replete with commentary from members who lived the outlaw life.
