Amazon’s Antwerp Diamond Heist Series to Debut in October
“Everybody Loves Diamonds” is an eight-part drama detailing the execution of one of the largest thefts in history.
One of the biggest heists in history, the caper took place on Feb. 15, 2003 when a team of Italian thieves, led by Leonardo Notarbartolo, broke into and looted the underground vault at the Antwerp Diamond Centre.
The thieves made off with more than $100 million in diamonds, cash, and jewelry.
The new show on the heist, called “Everybody Loves Diamonds,” follows Notarbartolo (played by Italian actor Kim Rossi Stuart) and his team of thieves.
Over the course of eight episodes, the limited series will detail the meticulous planning that went into the heist as well as the execution, which involved successfully skirting some of the tightest security in the world.
When announcing production of the series in 2020, Amazon described it as a “heist series with comedy implications.”
Everybody Loves Diamonds also stars Anna Foglietta, Gian Marco Tognazzi, Carlotta Antonelli and Leonardo Lidi, with English actors Rupert Everett (Julia Roberts’ editor and friend in “My Best Friend’s Wedding”) and Malcolm McDowell (“A Clockwork Orange”).
It was directed by Gianluca Maria Tavarelli and produced by Wildside, which is part of Fremantle, producer of such series as “My Brilliant Friend,” “Deadliest Catch,” and “The X Factor.”
It will begin streaming on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories on Oct. 13.
It’s been featured on The History Channel, including as the first episode of the first season of “History’s Greatest Heists,” with Pierce Brosnan narrating.
Once upon a time, J.J. Abrams was said to be producing a movie about the notorious theft, though it never came to fruition.
There’s also a book about it, “Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History” by Scott Andrew Selby and Greg Campbell, and it was featured in the first episode of the Audible podcast “Heist With Michael Caine.”
