On Wednesday, December 18, 2019, Mob Mentality, the gripping new episodic TV crime series will screen its pilot episode “All In” before a packed theatre of over 300 ticket holders at New York’s SVA Theater.
The pilot episode follows Carmine “Car” Ponte Jr., played by actor Jack Spiegs, who is the son of a reputed Mobster sets out to rebuild his life after his release from Federal Prison, but a series of events derail his plans thrusting him into a life of crime. In the pilot, Carmine works as a high school psychologist by day while moonlighting as a criminal. Attendees will be treated to the first two episodes of the show as well as a reception with lite bites and a full open bar.
Mob Mentality was created, written and directed by Isis Djata, a Bronx native, law school graduate, and actress of West African descent. The show is produced by Locked & Loaded Films and Brave Artists. Djata is the owner and benefactor of both production companies, using $250K of her own personal savings (in addition to the show receiving an angel gift of $100,000) to get the job done. Isis set out to write the next Great American Mob Show in 2013 three months after escaping a near-death head-on collision with a drunk driver.
“I knew that it was going to work. It’s a good story. It’s a concept that hasn’t been done,” Isis says. “Viewers have never seen a character like Carmine who is a school psychologist by day and a criminal by night.” One fan has said: It’s the show mob enthusiasts have been waiting for!
The Mob Mentality Red Carpet Premiere will be hosted by award-winning multi-media journalist Selena Hill of Black Enterprise Magazine.
The show will be pitched to cable networks and streaming services beginning in February 2020.
