Banshee (Max & Prime Video Add-On)

Complicating matters is the fact that Banshee is riddled by corruption, with an Amish overlord, Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), brutally building a local empire of drugs, gambling, and graft.
Peaky Blinders (Netflix)
Synopsis: Peaky Blinders is an epic gangster family saga that begins in 1919 in the lawless slum neighbourhoods of post war Birmingham.

Communists don’t just dream of revolution – they are planning for it and the Government is expecting it. As Churchill mobilizes his Special Branch forces, illegal bookmakers make fortunes in speak-easy betting shops and traumatised infantrymen drink away their shell-shock in riotous ale houses. There is still a gentler city at the fringes, where gypsies and canal boatmen deal horses and tell fortunes but sitting at the top of this industrial jungle are the extended Shelby family, whose many brothers, cousins and uncles, make up the fiercest gang of all, the ‘Peaky Blinders’. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, the Peaky Blinders make their money from illegal track betting, protection and robbery. Their boss Tommy is the most ruthless brother of them all, but his leadership is about to be put to the test.
