On Discovery’s newest series, “Mobster Confessions,” real-life gangsters look back at their lives of crime as mafia informants come out of hiding to tell their stories.
In Zap2it‘s exclusive sneak peek of the six-part show, mobster Billy Cutolo Jr. talks about how he got into the mafia by following in his father’s footsteps. His father was the underboss of the Columbo crime family, known as “Wild Bill” Cutolo.
Cutolo Jr. says his dad didn’t want him to get into the family business. After he graduated from community college, he says, “I’d never seen my father so proud. It was a side of him I didn’t see very often.”
Although he was the first person in the family to graduate from college, Cutolo Jr. says he told his dad he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and join the mafia. A week later, he was working his way up the ranks.
“Mobster Confessions” premieres Monday, June 25 at 9 p.m. on Discovery. Check out a sneak peek below:
