Following a first installment that profiled the history of organized crime in New York, AMC moves west to the Windy City to chronicle the rise and fall of iconic gangster Al Capone. The eight-episode docudrama begins by charting Capone's early days before his move to Chicago, where a bootlegging battle among gangs prompts Capone to challenge his rivals. As he consolidates power, he achieves legendary status for his ruthless tactics and over-the-top lifestyle that attracts the wrath of President Herbert Hoover. The series features interviews with historians, authors, actors, law enforcement personnel and family members, including actors Vincent Pastore and Michael Madsen, New York Times best-selling author and Al Capone expert Jonathan Eig, and former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.

It revolves around Abe Woodhull, a young farmer torn between loyalty to his Tory background and respect for those who fight for the Patriot cause. Living on British-occupied Long Island, Abe joins a group of his childhood friends to form what becomes known as the Culper Ring, a spy network charged with sniffing out British military strategy. Under the direction of Gen. Washington, Abe and his fellow agents help turn the war to the Continentals' favor, and their daring efforts ultimately serve as the foundation for modern espionage.
