Synopsis
This film, dealing with the life and family of a syndicate boss (played by actor/director Sam Wanamaker), emerged as an off-beat pilot to a prospective series -- TV's first dealing exclusively with organized crime from the syndicate's point of view. Ted Danson, later to find stardom on "Cheers", is the family's oldest son who has been informing to the police in exchange for protection, and David Morse, who would go on to bigger things on "St. Elsewhere", is one of his brothers, a bank vice president trying to separate himself from the family's business. Most unusual casting was Ray Milland's as an ailing Mafia chieftain.
