Cast to work on a mob-themed Series
in a Lead role as the Stepfather

TV Series outline: A young Colombian man wants to get involved with his Stepfather's Italian Mafia business.
SERIES PREMIERE

A young Colombian man wants to get involved with his stepfather's Italian Mafia business. Along the way Stepfather has to cut ties with old Italian connections because of not following through with orders to kill Colombian Stepson for job botched up, including murder of a "made man" within the Italian clan.

The Stepfather becomes mentor for the Stepsons, Anthony (and Marvin reluctantly). The three combine forces and grow a drug empire with connections to other criminal organizations from around the world. They become "big players" in the Canadian criminal underworld while warding off hostile threats from Stepfather's old Italian affiliations.

THE STEPSON; Blood is not thicker than water, is the classic story of family connections, love & betrayal in the criminal underworld and the ruthless lengths the key players go through to maintain their status and power in it.

FACEBOOK: SON OF A DON


SYNOPSIS - It’s 1956 – the peak of Mafioso involvement with Professional Boxing… So, what would happen when two separate, Mafia-born, boxing managers put the fix on two different fighters in the same match? You’ll get the wildest, most outrageously unique fight of all time. The story’s main character, Gino Morella, is the loyal son of an elderly Mafia Don – Renato Morella. When the elderly Don is hospitalized after an altercation with an angry ‘organ grinder’s monkey’, his son, Gino, must ensure the outcome of the match or else watch the family’s finances end up in ruins. Of course, every match has a winner and a loser. Naturally, the Mafia team who is on the losing end of the match demands restitution. This is a whacky, action-packed story loaded with many unpredictable surprises. This ‘black comedy’ is a wonderful blending of ‘nasty’ and ‘fun’…
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ORIGINS OF THE NAME "GINO MORELLA"
I plan on turning into an Indy Feature OR a web series. I'd be playing the lead character Gino Morella. Originally Markus came up with the name for the character and called him "Tony Morella" but I thought that was too much like "Tony Soprano" and wanted to distance myself from Sopranos and create an original character. I liked "Morella" for the last name and we decided to keep it. I selected the name "Gino" in honour of my father who passed away in 2004. Named the character after my father. So this explains the origins of the name, GINO MORELLA.
