Cement Heads - Netflix
When the lights turn on and the cameras start rolling at WJL Equities, a large family-owned construction company, the employees can't quite get the hang of being in front of the camera. "Does somebody want to say action?" confused company owner Billy Lougheed asks the production crew on the first day of filming. While the team has mastered the highly competitive world of New York's concrete construction business, they're not quite equipped to be reality stars. The cameras and crew throw a wrench into the already chaotic lives of the Lougheeds as they follow the everyday antics around the family business.

Cement Heads - Cement shoes - Netflix
Cement shoes or Chicago overcoat is a largely fictional method of execution and/or body disposal, usually associated with criminals such as the Mafia or gangs. It involves weighting down the victim, who may be dead or alive, with concrete and throwing them into the water in the hope the body will never be found. In the US, the term has become tongue-in-cheek for a threat of death by criminals. Only one real-life case is confirmed. Cement shoes involve first binding, incapacitating or killing the victim and then placing each foot into a bucket or box, which is then filled with wet concrete. Typically in movies and novels the victim is still alive as they watch the concrete harden, heightening the torture and drama. After the concrete sets, the living victim/corpse is thrown into a river, lake or the ocean. A similar term is cement overcoat or sleep[ing] with the fishes. Although called “cement”, it is technically concrete which is a mixture of cement powder, water, and sand or gravel.
