First broadcast in Italy in 1984, THE OCTOPUS was an international sensation, running 10 seasons for over 18 years. Filmed across three continents with the scope and sophistication of prestige cinema, this epic Mafia thriller tells the story of an age-old battle between the law and organized crime families, showing just what it costs to stand up against systemic injustice. Created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ennio de Concini (Divorce Italian Style) and director Damiano Damiani (A Bullet for the General), the series became a showcase for an outstanding international cast including Martin Balsam, Remo Girone, Angelo Infanti, Francisco Rabal, Bruno Cremer, and Luca Zingaretti. Featuring a defining score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone, THE OCTOPUS is truly a one-of-a-kind entry in TV history. This new edition of the complete series has been digitally remastered with updated English subtitles and a wealth of DVD extras, including interviews with cast and crew.
