Description

Silvio Berlusconi was a charismatic multi-millionaire real-estate mogul who upended the Italian political order and hypnotized an entire nation. He was one of the longest-serving prime ministers of one of the world’s wealthiest countries, until he was brought down by three powerful women - and two words: “Bunga Bunga.” From Wondery, the makers of Dirty John and The Shrink Next Door, and hosted by comedian Whitney Cummings, “Bunga Bunga” is an eight part series on the incredible true story of the rise and fall of Silvio Berlusconi, told with Whitney’s signature wit and style.

It’s been five years since Silvio’s first term in office ended, and he’s ready for a comeback. While Silvio creates his own glossy brochure to tell voters of his idyllic life, a late-night talk show host is pulling back the curtain. He wants to answer a question that has been dogging Silvio his entire career: “Silvio, where did you get all this money?!” The answer causes a sensation. (Hint: it involves the Mafia.) But is this revelation enough to stop Silvio from winning a second time?

In his first term in office as Prime Minister, Silvio is promising Italy a fresh start. But the voters aren’t so sure. Silvio finds that governing isn’t easy. In fact, it puts a target on his back, and a dogged new prosecutor named Ilda “the Red” is taking aim.
