FORMER MOBSTERS GO SUBURBAN IN OXYGEN MEDIA'S NEW DOCU-COMEDY SERIES "UNPROTECTED" PREMIERING TUESDAY, APRIL 11 AT 9PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 23, 2017 - Going from a life of crime to life in the suburbs proves to be the ultimate challenge in Oxygen Media's quirky new half-hour docu-comedy series "Unprotected," premiering Tuesday, April 11 at 9pm ET/PT. The series follows the Cantarellas, a boisterous, old-school family that participated in the Federal Witness Protection Program after their testimony led to the conviction of one of the most powerful crime families in the country. Now out of the program and raising two teenagers in Scottsdale, Arizona, viewers will get an up-close and amusing glimpse into the lives of this New York family as they adapt to their unfamiliar suburban surroundings, try to shred old habits and stay true to themselves.

"'Unprotected' is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy series that reminds us that at the core of it all, it's all about family," said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development, Oxygen Media. "The Cantarella way may not always be the norm, but they're a delightful blend of clashing generations and over-the-top personalities. The pursuit of second chances will resonate with our audience, making everyone feel as if they're a part of the family."

In the series premiere, after being offended by a not-so-great Yelp review of the family car wash, Richard and Lauretta track down the culprit in an effort to get the review removed. Meanwhile, Toni and Richie Jr. make a commercial in hopes of turning the wash's reputation around. From running a legit family business to making new friends, the Cantarellas are putting their wayward past behind them and learning how to live life in the 'burbs.

Meet the Family:
Richard Cantarella
Lauretta Cantarella
Tracey Accardo
Paul Cantarella
Kim Cantarella
Toni Ann Cantarella
Richie Cantarella

"Unprotected" is produced by Propagate with Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens, Kevin Healey, Eric Kutner, Haylee Vance and Meredith Prunkard serving as Executive Producers.
