Nothing Personal is one of nine new series launching on ID in the first quarter of 2011.

The new one-hour series about mafia disloyalties, romantic infidelities and more premieres on March 9 at 10 p.m. ET.

The first episode tells the story of Larry ‘Champagne’ Carrozza, a young gangster who had a hit put on him, with an exclusive interview with notorious hit man ‘Big Sal’ Miciotta, the man who pulled the trigger.

Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery, said in a statement:  “Cleaning Up has all the hallmarks of a great character-based docu-series while staying true to ID’s mission of superb storytelling.”

He also described the series as a “genre-stretching.”

The concept was developed by Matt Ogens (Confessions of a Superhero), who will executive produce with New Wave’s Barry Katz and Brian Volk-Weiss.
