In six episodes 4 Blocks tells a story about friendship and family, betrayal and guilt in the milieu of an Arabic clan in Berlin-Neukölln. At its center is Ali Hamady, who wants to leave the criminal business and his "four blocks" for his wife's and daughter's sake. But when his brother in law is arrested after a raid, he stumbles into a downward spiral of crime, intrigue and betrayal, he can't seem to escape.Written by

There is European talent base that has been putting together quality true crime serial drama with like 6-10 episodes a season. THey come out sporadically and the US producer see them for the competiation they are, so the releases are hard to find, but worth it when you do. This reminds me of the Italian contemporary mob series Gomorrha and some less gritty cop based stuff like Witness and Marcela. The point is, like this show, they are well done, and well worth watching for US audiences who have been getting spoon fed crap on cable TV and a dare say the dinosaur that is "network tv'. If you like true crime, ganster family drama, give this a try.
