Product description

The Sopranos is one of the best drama series ever to appear in the US. The programme follows Tony Soprano, a mafia boss from New Jersey, as he juggles his life in the mob with his family relationships and his psychiatrist. The Sopranos: The Official Companion is a lavish, full colour accompaniment to the award-winning series. With full behind-the-scenes access to the cast and crew, the book tells the programme's development from the original idea to the televised series. The first two series are examined in full, and there is a complete guide to the stars and key figures involved in the production. The book includes exclusive interviews with many of the key figures involved in The Sopranos, as well as a wealth of unseen photographs and never-before-revealed details from the series' production. Written with the full co-operation of the producers, The Sopranos: The Official Companion is the ultimate guide to one of the finest TV series ever made.
