Articles for Brotherhood Season 2

While some people choose to see a more traditional action-crime television drama, the residents of Providence, Rhode Island opt for Brotherhood, which is also the setting of this Showtime series. Created by Blake Masters, Brotherhood, which stared its second season on September 30, is about the organized crime and politics in Rhode Island.  It revolves around the Irish-American Caffee family, particularly local politician Tommy Caffee (Jason Clarke) and his brother Michael (Jason Isaacs) who is deeply involved in the neighborhood‘s Irish mob.  Despite their differences, the brothers share a strange sense of moral cooperation.  Set on The Hill, a fictional Irish neighborhood located between Broadway and Westminister Street in Providence, Rhode Island, which has large a mix of Italian and Irish background, the series has now established itself a solid following with nearly all the residents of The Renaissance City.  Read more »
