The Bronx Is Burning (2007)

John Turturro as "Billy Martin"

Adapted from Joseph Mahler's non-fiction best seller ``Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bronx Is Burning,'' this eight-part miniseries chronicles New York's turbulent year of 1977, during which the New York Yankees clinched their first World Series Championship under the ownership of George Steinbrenner. That triumph, however, played out against the melodrama of the Son of Sam murders, a traumatic blackout and a bitter mayoral election.

When the network decides to bring in a more telegenic contestant, the WASP-ish Charles Van Doren (Ralph Fiennes), Stempel takes aim at the show, announcing that the game is rigged. Congressional investigator Dick Goodwin (Rob Morrow) is brought in to examine the claim that winners were given the answers. Goodwin wrote the book on which this true story is based.
