Catch Bobby Moresco's Newest hit TV series Monday March 5 on NBC!!


NBC's newest and most talked about drama The Black Donnelly's aired Monday February 26th, following the hit drama Heroes. NBC was so excited about the mid-season drama that it premiered it a week earlier than planned. In creating the new drama for NBC, Academy Award winners Paul Haggis and longtime IMTA colleague Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby) developed a story of four brothers involved in organized crime in New York that is loosely based on both Moresco’s and Haggis's backgrounds.

The pilot episode, which can currently be viewed on the Bravo channel, centers around one brother’s plan to help another out of a gambling debt by stealing a truckload designer shirts. This plan backfires, forcing the two to kidnap a local mob boss's nephew. When the boss’s right-hand-man decides to take the matters into his own hands, the most clever of the brothers has to choose between fighting for his family and life as an honest man.
What a great preview/interview with Bobby here!

Amanda Moresco, a veteran of IMTA has written two scripts for The Black Donnellys. The titles of her episodes are “All of Us Are in the Gutter” and “Wasn’t That Enough?”. Amanda is no stranger to working with her father. She was First Assistant Director on Crash and had a small role in last year’s feature 10th and Wolf which was written and directed by Bobby. Amanda also wrote the script for A Modern Day Twain Story: The Prince and The Pauper an updated retelling of the Mark Twain classic that stars twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse from Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Bobby acted as Executive Producer for this project.

For nearly 15 years, Bobby has been conducting acting workshops and looking for new talent at IMTA conventions with his manager, Al Onorato, while Amanda has worked with IMTA behind the scenes. IMTA congratulates them both and wishes them continued success! Catch the next episode of this new drama Monday March 5 on NBC!!!
