Flipped: A Mobster Tells All takes viewers inside the lives of the country’s most ruthless gangsters who testified against their friends and “families” in an effort to escape life in prison – or certain death. In each hour-long episode, we’ll meet one former mobster – living in constant fear — as he recounts his brutal life of crime – the drug dealing, loan-sharking, the shakedowns, the murders — and how he was finally cornered by the Feds. What convinced him to turn? Was it the fear of a life sentence? A threat against him or his family by his former associates? He’ll tell us his story first-hand.
