About “The Many Saints of Newark”:

The Sopranos is getting a prequel. Ending in 2007, “The Sopranos” made HBO a household name. The show won 21 Primetime Emmys and five Golden Globes. David Chase, “The Sopranos” creator, showrunner, writer and producer is leading the movie. He wrote the script with Lawrence Konner, a Sopranos staff writer.

The Many Saints of Newark is set amid the 1967 Newark riots, which Livia was seen watching live on television during a flashback in the episode “Down Neck”.

There were over a hundred race riots across America in what was dubbed “The Long Hot Summer of 1967”, as tensions boiled over as African Americans continued to face discrimination. In Newark, the start for the riot was one that still shocks the city today is the beating of a black man by police.

“That was a time when the African-Americans and the Italians of Newark were at each other’s throats,” Deadline notes, “and among the gangsters of each group, those conflicts became especially lethal.”
