At San Michele, prison warden Bruno Testori lays down the law, maintaining order by imposing his own warped sense of justice on the inmates. However, a series of unexplained events rocks the foundation of his house of cards, leading Il Re to realise that this isn't his kingdom anymore. Luca Zingaretti stars in this hard-hitting Italian drama, and you can read on to find out how to watch The King online wherever you are in the world.
Great crisis brings great opportunity, and when bad things start happening to the biggest players in San Michele's corridors of power, Testori knows he'll have to move quickly to restore the status quo he's spilt so much blood to establish.
Will the dictator's iron fist be enough to quell the clamor triggered by the prison's newfound power vacuum?
Increasingly isolated just as the battle lines for the prison's drugs trade are drawn and uneasy truces between factions begin to waver, Testori takes his methods to new extremes in order to keep his seat at the head of the table.
But he's no longer the sharpest mind on the block, and it's not just the inmates he has to worry about. Read on as we detail how to watch The King online where you are.
