  BBC Sells Controversial Russian Mob Drama ‘McMafia’ to Russia (EXCLUSIVE) BBC Studios has managed to sell Russian mob drama “McMafia” to Russia itself, despite objections from Russian authorities to the series when it aired in Britain and amid worsening relations between the two countries over the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal.The series, which centers on a global crime ring run out of Russia, was broadcast on the BBC in the U.K. and AMC in the U.S., and will go out in Russia on the country’s free-TV channel Friday. Starring James Norton, who had a major role in the BBC’s adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” “McMafia” was also picked up internationally by Amazon for its streaming service.

There's a brief moment during the series where we catch a glimpse of the physical torment inflicted by the corset in numerous red scars across Sara's torso, and now Fanning has revealed that off-screen she collapsed during her first fitting because of how tight it was.

"It was a completely easy way in to the character Sara and the time period. I've worn a corset for other roles and but I'm always so shocked about how it changes everything – about the way you sit, walk, move, breathe. How much you can eat, how much you can't. It's tight."

Fanning's audacious Sara – who is forced to tolerate the indecent behaviour of her male colleagues on a daily basis – lends her police detective aspirations to help progressive child psychologist Dr Kreizler [Daniel Brühl] solve a spate of gruesome child murders.

Stop asking Rooney to be an angel, pleads Allardyce

  Stop asking Rooney to be an angel, pleads Allardyce Everton manager Sam Allardyce insists Wayne Rooney should be allowed to show his frustrations.Wayne Rooney is being asked to be an "angel" by a "politically correct world", according to Sam Allardyce, who has no issue with the Everton man's reaction to being substituted against Liverpool.

The three characters are fictional, but there are real-life figures depicted in the series, including Theodore Roosevelt and JP Morgan.

Meanwhile, Fanning added that the corset was another restriction put in place for women of that time, worn to keep up a certain appearance.

"As a female, it was another thing you couldn't do for yourself," the actress continued. "You had to wear these elaborate costumes to keep up this facade of what women were supposed to be – you couldn't even take them off on your own at the end of the day."

"Kreizler is an outcast from society because his ideas are new, and progressive, and I think he and Sara have that in common – she's doing the same thing, being female [in a an all-male workplace] and society in general, they were always the outcast because they had so many restrictions and boundaries.
