Whitey Bulger to become a character in a new TV series


Killer Bulger as he looks now

NOTORIOUS Irish mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger is to become a character in a new television series.

In August the gangster, who terrorised the people of Boston in the 1980s with his feared Irish “Winter Hill Gang”, was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of 11 murders.

Now he will become a central figure in a new series on America’s Fox channel, who are making a show based on the book Street Soldier: My Life As An Enforcer, by former boxer Eddie MacKenzie, a member of Bulger’s gang.

The story follows Mackenzie’s life as an enforcer for Whitey and details how he was able to extricate himself from Bulger’s gang without getting himself killed.

Bulger who was once on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list inspired Jack Nicholson’s character in 2006’s The Departed.

Meanwhile there is a Warner Bros. feature film in the works about his crime empire produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
