Mafiosa, full title Mafiosa, le clan was a French crime drama television series, which premiered on Canal+ on December 6, 2006. The series was created by Hugues Pagan.

The popular series extended for four more seasons added for 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. The 2014 series was renamed Mafiosa - L'ultime saison (Mafiosa - the last season). Each season of the series comprised 8 episodes for a total of 40 episodes.

The producer for the series was Nicole Collet with Serge Moati as assistant producer. Various directors for the seasons included Louis Choquette (season 1), Éric Rochant (seasons 2 and 3), Pierre Leccia (seasons 4 and 5).


By the will of her murdered uncle, the Corsican mafia boss François Paoli, the clan's lawyer, Sandra Paoli (Hélène Fillières), suddenly finds herself the head of the clan. Backed up by her brother, Jean-Michel Paoli, she learns how to assert herself in a very violent world and becomes a respected, but also hated, woman in a world of men, murder and criminality.

According to several media sources, the character Sandra is an adaptation of the current life of the Corsican widow Sandra Casanova-Germani whose brother Jean-Luc Germani is the most wanted man in France.[1] The series contains violence and political schemes.
