American Gypsies

About the Show

From Executive Producer Ralph Macchio and Stick Figure Productions

For over a thousand years, Romani, or Gypsy people, have remained hidden from view ... until now. National Geographic Channel's brand-new series American Gypsies gives an intimate portrayal of the Johnses, a family steeped in honor, living by their own rules and traditions, and trying to capture their version of the American dream. Over nine episodes, cameras document their effort to preserve age-old Gypsy customs amid the vices of New York City, while upholding their family’s power in the community and expanding their psychic shop empire.
