: : : The Sopranos - The Complete First Season

Story

With The Sopranos, writer-producer David Chase broke boldly from serial television conventions to create a richly layered, genre-bending program focusing on a modern Mafioso and both his families--the embattled criminal organization he headed, and his own dysfunctional family. For TV veteran Chase, whose career included important associations with critically lauded series, among them The Rockford Files, I'll Fly Away, and Northern Exposure, the new show's placement on HBO allowed him broader creative license, and The Sopranos took advantage of that context to create one of the boldest, most adult programs ever seen on American television. In its acclaimed first season, The Sopranos garnered more nominations for the 51st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards than any other program cited during that 1998-1999 season. Creator Chase received an award for outstanding writing for a drama series, and Edie Falco, cast as mob wife Carmela Soprano, was honored as outstanding lead actress in a drama series.
