Bang Bang Baby is a 10 episode TV Series filmed in Italy, commissioned to stream on Prime Video in Italian Language with English Subtitles. The first five episodes of Bang Bang Baby will be released on April 28 on Prime Video. The second half of the series will be released on May 19.


"Bang Bang Baby" is a TV Series created by Andrea di Stefano, and directed by Michele Alhaique (ep. 1-4, 7-8), Margherita Ferri (ep. 5-6), and Giuseppe Bonito (ep. 9-10). Loosely based on a true story about Marisa Merico (learn more about her from the 2015 documentary "Lady 'Ndrangheta"). The TV Series attempts to be a mash-up of crime genre, dark comedy and teen-family drama, creating something unique, a "teeny dark crime family dramedy?", or a humorous look at a young woman’s coming-of-age/origin story.

Bang Bang Baby should not be confused with the 2014 Sci-Fi/Musical Movie about a teenage girl in a 1960's small town that dreams of becoming a singer, which has the same name this TV Series, which is about a teenage girl in a 1980's (roughly 1986) small town in Northern Italy, that dreams of becoming a member of the Calabrian Mafia in Milan, Italy, specifically the ‘Ndrangheta affiliate, where many woman have key roles. Young Alice wants to become a "made woman", just like her dear ol' Dad. If she ever decides that she wants out, it will probably be too late…

Arianna Becheroni plays Alice, a shy, insecure, but carefree 16 year old girl in a small Italian town, who spends her time watching American TV and films. Alice discovers the big family secret, her father, whom she hasn’t seen in over ten years, because she thought he was dead, is very much alive. Obsessed with meeting her dad and winning his approval, Alice leaves home and travels down the path to a life in the Mafia and crime. Alice uses her imagination and love of the music, TV and pop culture of the 80's in an attempt to traverse the cruel and ruthless, criminal underworld of blood, drugs, and Eggplant Parmigiana to become the Mafia's youngest member.


Adriano Giannini plays Santo Barone, Alice's father, who is one of the most powerful and dangerous bosses of the ‘Ndrangheta.


Lucia Mascino plays Gabriella Gianmatteo, Alice's mother.

2S01.E02: The Barones
Alice recalls her childhood with her father's family as if it was one of those happy American sitcom families… but was it?

S01.E03: A bionic heart
Just like in the Bionic Woman, Alice dreams she’s getting an iron heart. Is that very heart the same as her father’s? Alice helps her father and he promises to help her face the shock of what she’s done for him. Nereo Ferraù and his cousin Assunta make a surprising discovery that puts Santo in a difficult position while simultaneously investigating the Damerino’s disappearance.

S01.E04: Destiny's tricks
We are what we are, everyone must follow their destiny. Lassie’s destiny is to come home. Suspecting foul play in the disappearance of the Damerino, the ‘ndrangheta decides to verify Santo’s alibi. Santo once again asks for help from his daughter. Meanwhile, a sweet Collie named Lassie makes a macabre discovery…

S01.E05: Game Over
Sometimes Alice’s life resembles Pacman’s. The main goal of both is to run and save themselves.
