Television show producer, JD, is looking for reality pizza stars...
If you know of anyone who fits the bill as a pizza making family who is a "really fun and friendly bunch and one that's totally "New York", you can contact J.D.
This is how stars are made!
I was lucky enough to stumble onto your directory this morning and thought I'd reach out about a project that I'm working on. Since you seem to have quite the working knowledge of all things pizza, I thought you might be able to help!
I'm looking for a family-owned and operated NYC/NJ pizzeria for a new TV project that I'm casting, and I thought you might have a couple favorites or maybe some recommendations of local pizza joints that might fit the bill.
We're looking for a really fun and friendly bunch and one that's totally "New York". Does anything come to mind? I'm attaching a press release that outlines the specifics, and I'd love to hear if you
have any ideas!
Thanks a ton,
Here's the Press Release:
Now casting: Owners and employees of family-owned pizzerias in NY/NJ area
New York, NY - NYC-based talent and casting agency, Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment, is seeking family owned and -operated pizzerias/Italian restaurants to be featured in a new docu-series in the vein of TLC's Cake Boss.
This series will give America an inside look at the daily events that take place in a classic NYC-area pizzeria. Participants should have dynamic personalities as well as a strong sense of family and fun. Pizzerias/restaurants should have a family feel and be run by a humorous and expressive group of characters.
If you've always thought your family could have its own show, or know one that should, this is the chance!To nominate your family, family-owned restaurant or favorite family-run pizzeria, send us an email to
and tell us about your restaurant and/or family.
