Fiore Films Expands Relationship With Radar Pictures, Compelling Entertainment and Gotti Family for Development of Reality Series
Marc Fiore, Ted Field to Co-Produce Television Series Based on Three Gotti Grandchildren From "Growing Up Gotti"
NEW YORK, NY, Feb 17, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Fiore Films, an independent production company, today announced that it has expanded its relationship with producer Ted Field and his companies Radar Pictures and Compelling Entertainment to co-produce and develop a reality television series based on the lives of John Gotti's three grandchildren who were featured in the hit A&E series "Growing Up Gotti." Wayne Page, head of Compelling Entertainment, would also be a co-producer.
John, Carmine and Frank Agnello, the three sons of Victoria Gotti and Carmine Agnello and grandsons of John Gotti, were first introduced to the public in the hit A&E reality television series "Growing Up Gotti." Since then, the three brothers have become fixtures on the New York celebrity scene and had been fielding offers from producers in New York and Los Angeles prior to signing with Fiore Films.
"The boys have that special something that appeals to a very wide audience," said Marc Fiore, president and CEO of Fiore Films, LLC. "We will be working with them to create a series that brings out each of their unique personalities as well as give an insider's look into the lives of the latest generation of Gottis."
"GOTTI: In The Shadow of My Father," the eagerly anticipated feature film being produced by Fiore Films and Radar Pictures, is slated to begin filming on location in New York in early fall.
Fiore Films acquired life rights from John Gotti, Jr., the son of the late John Gotti, to the story of his life with his father. The deal marks the first time a member of the Gotti family has entered into an agreement to tell their story for a major motion picture. "GOTTI: In The Shadow of My Father" reveals the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who chose to leave that world behind and redeem himself. Never before has there been such an inside look at the life of the Gotti family and their world of danger, betrayal and redemption.
