Opening Introduction (narrated by Ray Liotta, who narrated the entire series):

At the beginning of the 20th century, Chicago is one of the most corrupt places in America. But in the heart of the city, a young gangster from Brooklyn rises to the top. Al Capone. In less than a decade, the ruthless gangster will create an empire, pulling in millions, eliminating all rivals, and transforming the Chicago Mafia into the most successful criminal syndicate in the country, known as the Outfit. Capone lays the foundation for a new generation of mobsters who build a city of sin, face-off with a political dynasty, and cement the Chicago Mafia’s place in history.

The first trailer, released in June 2016, promoted the “8-part premiere event” and a July 11, 2016 release date. It featured the tagline, “They built Las Vegas, but they owned Chicago.”[2]
