          Get a look into the mind of the man who pulled off one of the greatest cons in history in the primetime miniseries "Madoff," airing February 3 & 4, 2016 at 8/7c on the ABC Television Network. Academy Award-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss stars as Bernie Madoff, with Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Blythe Danner as his wife, Ruth. "Madoff" will follow the prodigious rise and abrupt demise of the former investment advisor and the subsequent fallout with his family, associates and investors.
 
         Madoff's Ponzi scheme is considered to be the largest financial scam in United States history, but the impact was global. Losing billions of dollars for clients worldwide, including philanthropic foundations, celebrities, and retirement portfolios, the story of the fall of three-time NASDAQ Chair Bernie Madoff dominated headlines in 2008-2009. The miniseries explores the complicated family dynamics within the Madoff clan and exposes the motivations and mechanics behind the monumental fraud.
 


          "Madoff" also stars Tom Lipinski as Mark Madoff, Danny Defarrari as Andrew Madoff, Peter Scolari as Peter Madoff, Erin Cummings as Eleanor Squillari, Michael Rispoli as Frank DiPascali and Frank Whaley as Harry Markopolos. The miniseries also features Charles Grodin and Lewis Black.
