An innovative look at the life of fictional Mafia Capo Tony Soprano, this serial is presented largely first person, but additional perspective is conveyed by the intimate conversations Tony has with his psychotherapist. We see Tony at work, at home, and in therapy. Moments of black comedy intersperse this aggressive, adult drama, with adult language, and extreme violence.

Did You Know?
Series creator David Chase
was a longtime fan of Steven Van Zandt
's music, and had always wanted to write a role for him. When Chase saw Van Zandt induct The Rascals
into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he invited him to audition for Tony Soprano, even though he had never acted before. Van Zandt did not want to take a role away from a real actor, so Chase wrote the role of Silvio Dante for him. The Rascals
' performance footage ended up being featured in season one, episode seven, "Down Neck". See more
Many of the characters are shown traveling relatively to areas throughout the NYC/NJ area in minutes which are actually very far distances from one another.
The Satriale's Pork Store location for example is in Kearny, NJ which is roughly 25 miles from Tony Soprano's West Caldwell home. And Bada-Bing!, the family's alternate headquarters is roughly 15 miles away, although it would take 40 minutes to get there on a good day. See more
