Subscribe To Godfather of Harlem



Subscribe To It is a column series highlighting television series and movies that should be talked about more.


Godfather of Harlem is an TV show that I don’t hear many people talk about. Now in its second season the series airs on premium cable station EPIX (Probably why many don’t talk about it). Anyway, the show stars Forrest Whitaker as legendary gangster Bumpy Johnson and his return to Harlem after a 10-year prison sentence. Upon his return to Harlem, he finds his neighborhood mostly ruled by the Italian mafia. Bumpy and his crew immediately work to regain control.
