"THE CAPONES" REALITY SERIES COMING TO REELZ IN FALL 2013

(Albuquerque, NM) Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - ReelzChannel - TV About Movies(R) today announced that ten episodes of the reality docuseries The Capones will premiere in fall 2013. The spirit of the infamous gangster Al Capone still lives on in Chicago in the form of his drama-filled, lasagna-loving dysfunctional family, the Capones. Direct descendants of Al Capone himself are living a true mashup of the American Dream. With a notorious bloodline and larger-than-life personalities, this workplace docuseries follows the goodfellas as they run the family Italian restaurant and try to keep peace at the Capone mansion with the extended family all living under one roof. The Capones is produced by Asylum Entertainment. Steve Michaels and Jonathan Koch from Asylum Entertainment serve as executive producers. Cara and Curtis Leopardo of Bonnie & Clyde Media also serve as executive producers on the project.

"We're excited to take viewers deep in to the heart and craziness of the modern Capone family business," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel. "In addition to family and food, The Capones cast also love movies and they will give our viewers their personal movie recommendations in surprising and fun behind the scenes interviews."

America's fascination for Italian culture in movies is undeniable. From The Godfather trilogy to the comedic turn of My Cousin Vinny to an intimate look at an Italian family and business in Moonstruck. In this spirit, Reelz debuts The Capones to show viewers life inside the Capone family in a reality series unlike anything on television.

Each episode follows Dom Capone "The Boss" as he runs this unkempt crew at his Italian eatery with an iron fist. The only one who keeps this loud-mouthed and fiery boss in check is his mother, Dawn. As co-owner of the restaurant with her son, Dawn is the meddling mother who gets involved in everyone's business, whether they like it or not.

Surrounding Dom and Dawn Capone are an unusual cast of characters even by reality show standards. Dom's current girlfriend "The Princess" and ex-girlfriend "Madness Cherry Lips", two crazy aunts and the unemployed friend "Sausage", drunken cousins, a pathological liar, flirty waitresses, an eccentric uncle "Toupee Lou", an Irishman, and of course, the neighborhood troublemakers "Meatball" and "Bart" and that just includes the staff. However dysfunctional this cast of characters can get, they always end the week with the traditional Sunday dinner where the drama is always spicier than the pepperoni.

Despite all the arguing, yelling, jealousy and manipulation, the passion and love that holds this family together runs deep. No matter what happens, they always stick together and know that family comes first no matter what.
