L’immortale (The Immortal) is a spin-off from Sky Atlantic’s Gomorrah, which is loosely based on Italian writer and Napolitano Roberto Saviano’s nonfiction book Gomorrah (March 2006), an investigative tome that under-covered in detail the workings of the criminal organisation, Camorra of Naples. The book led to a play then a film (both in 2008), then to a TV series (2014), co-created by Savino. The TV series bears no resemblance to the book, film, or the play.

My Brilliant Friend - The Story of A New Name, is the follow on to HBO, RAI and TIMvision’s critically acclaimed TV Series, My Brilliant Friend, created by Italian director Saverio Costanzo, (Hungry Hearts, The Solitude of Prime Numbers) based on Elena Ferrante’s four-book series entitled the Neapolitan Novels.
