Mafia Life Chris reality show

Is the network funding your pilot or is the production company or you and your family paying the budget of the pilot (please tell me you're not paying out of pocket)? I don't know if you're misspeaking again, but by the time this goes to pilot, a network should own the idea and then after the pilot is shot, the network would decide if they are going to finance the other episodes. When you said they'll "purchase" the pilot after it's shot, you got me scared, this sounds like one of those Dateline NBC segments about the parents paying tens of thousands of dollars to get their kid a talent agent who never does anything and all they wind up with is a bunch of shitty pictures. Don't go using your own money to shoot this, if someone is telling you to do that, walk away.
The pilot must be purchased, as per the contract they signed (they dont need to air it though if they dont like it). The network is paying our production company to do the production. Once the pilot is produced, they will decide to purchase more eps with it or not. Things are looking good.

As far as I've ever heard networks really only buy an entire season of a reality show before a pilot is shot when it's a competition show or a show with an elimination type element and those are ordered that way from the same small group of known production companies for the most part.

Also be careful with all your ancillary rights. You have a magazine and all these other businesses, make sure that what ever this production company and network do that they don't wind up getting a piece of that action also. You need to find out how to split the profits of any merchandise that comes out of the show with them, but they shouldn't get a piece of what you've already created. If you didn't want to smash your head against a wall at least once while going over your contract with the network as they try and get a chunk of the future profits from what you're already doing, you probably weren't reading the fine print of your contract close enough.
We are very happy with what we got. Took 7 months of back and forth before they shot the sizzle reel, and I tipped Ron and Fez off. All prints were read, and revised multiple times. You seem like you know what your talking about. Thanks for caring, or for the free advise. It's all good. I personally have so many things started before these guys met me, that I will watch them soar. The situation got nothing on me.

And please don't let them make you look like a bunch of dumb ignorant Italians like every other reality show focused on Italians does. I hate to say it, but I don't think there is a show if that's not the slant.
Since you seem to know your stuff. You also know that you have not much choice in this. We will do what we really do, and be true to ourselves, and they will do what they do, and edit to make a show entertaining. We get what we got, and in the end we will use that to brand what we want to brand.

I am happy people felt interested enough in what we do to make a show about it for whatever reason. I been dealing with the likes of you assholes for years, I do not expect no different when a massive audience gets to see me :)

A few of you guys know me personally, and some deeper then others. I can give a shit about haters. The buzz created from hate is alot more valuable to what I do. When people hate, tons of non-vocal fans inquire, and find what i do. And, getting a 'reaction' is exactly what makes me who I am. This social media-online branding business is not new to me. I truly do not give a fuck what anyone thinks about me. The audience that digs my stuff gets reached either way, and the fans get what they want. The other ones can not watch, or go to my websites, or watch to hate, and draw me some advertising money with thier unique hits.

I will take whatever the network does with what we do, and make sure I brand who i am, and what i do. Like it or not.

Worst case scenario. This network fails us. We will sell this fucker to another one.
Worser case scenario... another one doesn't want it either.

Another half a year... no Mob Candy Reality Show.

Call me Petey Pessimist, but I don't think this is happening.

MLC has moved on, since no network wanted his show, he has decided to start his own network. He's currently negotiating with Direct TV, DishNetwork, Comcast, Time Warner, etc... to carry the new Mob TV Channel and its going to be all exclusive content produced my MLC himself.

This is going to be bigger than HBO!

Come now Dave. He has a Jersey Shore castoff. That buzz'll carry him for at least the first three years.

Hell yea! Mob Candy TV is already bigger than MTV and they haven't even aired an hour of programming yet

MLC is already in talks to launch a spin off network to constantly report on the latest turns from Mafia Life the game - kind of like CNN Headline News & The Weather Channel but 24 hours a day updates from Mafia Life.

This is going to be huge!

You haters are all going to look like fools

I only heard him on the show for a couple minutes the other day, what's the latest update, is Angelina now on his show? Is that it?

Update!!!

It was the E! network they were pitching... specifically Whoopi Goldberg's production company or somethingorother.

And it looks like I was dead right when I called this one...

Let's be realistic here... there is no way in Hell the "Mob Candy Reality Show" could ever pull off a 'They're laughing with us, not at us.' and the harder they tried to be 'legit', the more ridiculous they'd be. The reason all of the 'ignorant Italian' reality shows go with the 'goof on us' angle, is because that's really the only appeal these people have... their buffoonery.

I doubt that even MLC is delusional enough to think that the Mob Candy Reality Show could ever make it to air with so much as a crumb of it's pride and dignity left intact.
MLC hinted today at the fact that he "Stood his ground", and refused to be made to look redigulous! and that's what got his pitch rejected.

So... here comes SIZZLE REEL Take 3! Third time's a charm, right!? Yeah... probably not.

But, get this! This time it's going to be "A sizzle reel with a twist!!!!!!"

Twist?

Begin the speculations...

The only way MLC can make it sizzle would require an accelerant and an open flame.

attempted murder? now honestly, what is that?
is it legal for a garbage man to burn garbage without a permit?

"a permit?! look who yer talkin to eh? fuhgeddabouddit!"

Where you getting 3rd?

This time around, it will be my 2nd sizzle reel.

WTF is up with the negative cunty bullshit. I am working my tail off to do my best. It's not the end of the world if it fails to sell to 1 network.

And if you fucking listened correctly, I said that E requested a completed product by Jan 1st, and the production company PASSED because they were spending too much time on whoopi's 'sister act on broadway'. In no way did I say we lost our 'stand my ground' battle. E was buying as is!

get your facts right mother fucker.

All the best,

MLC

You are trying to push a contrived concept that has been done to death. You are pushing a facebook game that has been done already and better than your concept. You can work your tail off and that's all well and good but you are flinging another turd onto an already massive pile of shit. Good thing your avatar is a bib because you sound like a baby. (Oh snap!) All that being said, Good Luck, Bro.

Oh, I apologize... the score so far is 1 sizzle reel, and 1 pilot presentation.

We shot a 'sizzle reel'. Which we shopped around. A Pilot "presentation' is being filmed this winter. The production company lawyers and the network lawyers were held up for a bit, but we are back on track.
So here comes The Mob Candy Reality Show Sizzle Reel 2: Electric Guidoloo.

WTF is up with the negative cunty bullshit.
It's what I do. It's my thing.

I am working my tail off to do my best.
We know you are, and that makes it even more:rotf: when you...

You mean "was not buying as is", right?

Take luck. You'll need it.

Oh... and congratulations on getting Mafialife on facebook. Welcome to three years ago, Mr. Alsoran.

Your shot! Mob related shows, especially reality shows are making a huge come back. From I married a mobster, to mob wives NY, and Mob wives Chicago + alot more. The goal was to push for it to make air while its making a comeback.

Im not forcing you to like the fucking shows. But 2.5 mil viewers for season 2 mob wives cannot be disputed. Sorry!

That game stood alone with no decent comp for 3 years. It still makes millions from people who love mob games, but have no other option. Thanks for the luck.

How will that compare to the 2.5 people outside of your family who bother to watch YOUR show or play the horrible facebook game?

Seriously, you should realize you just aren't that good at this schtick.

You don't think that the fact that it is a ZYNGA game and that they cross advertise in all of their other games has anything to do with it?

They make a LOT of different games with similar concepts so that they can get as many players as possible overall.

You on the other hand are a one trick pony and the trick isn't even as good as the one done by people who do a ton of other things.

I put that there because Im sure you didnt know what that word meant. Your defense just proves that you are trying to shovel more horseshit onto this "huge comeback" nonsense and win the lottery. Again, Good Luck, Bro.
