The saga of a Chicago police detective's efforts to stop a young hood's ruthless rise in the ranks of organized crime.
The character of Ray Luca (Anthony Denison) is based upon Chicago mobster Tony "The Ant" Spilotro. Spilotro also inspired Joe Pesci's character of Nicky Santoro in Casino (1995). By the same token, Andrew "Dice" Clay's character of Max Goldman, and Robert De Niro's character of Sam "Ace" Rothstien in Casino (1995), are both based upon Spilotro's partner, Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal.
Lt. Mike Torello:
Hey you. You hurt anybody else, when this is over, I'm gonna find what you love the most and I'm gonna kill it. Your mother, your father, your dog... don't matter what it is, it's dead.
Throughout the filming of the series in Chicago, if you pay attention, you can see modern cars, billboards, etc. in the background of this series which takes place in the 1960s.
