The Good Mothers UK release date and first trailer as new series comes to Disney+

The Good Mothers is on its way to Disney+ in the UK – here’s all you need to know.


The Good Mothers is a multi-layered narrative that follows the shocking true story of three women who were born into the deadliest of the Italian Mafia clans, and how they worked with a courageous female prosecutor to bring it down from the inside.

A teaser shares: “Based on a true story, The Good Mothers follows the story of Denise, daughter of Lea Garofalo, Maria Concetta Cacciola and Giuseppina Pesce, three women who dared to defy the ‘Ndrangheta mafia. To help them, prosecutor Anna Colace, having just arrived in Calabria, has an intuition: to be able to defeat the ‘Ndrangheta clans, you need to focus on the women.

“It is a strategy that brings with it great risk: The ‘Ndrangheta is famous and feared for its iron fist and insidious power. The Good Mothers follows Denise, Giuseppina and Maria Concetta in their attempt to free themselves from the criminal power and collaborate with the authorities.”
