U.S. net ReelzChannel has set a fall premiere date for The Capones (pictured), a reality docu-series featuring the “drama-filled, lasagna-loving” direct descendants of notorious Prohibition-era gangster Al Capone.

The 10-episode series is produced by Asylum Entertainment. Reelz bills the show as a workplace docu-series, which “follows the goodfellas as they run the family Italian restaurant and try to keep peace at the Capone mansion with the extended family all living under one roof.

“The spirit of the infamous gangster Al Capone still lives on in Chicago in the form of his drama-filled, lasagna-loving dysfunctional family, the Capones.”

Steve Michaels and Jonathan Koch from Asylum serve as exec producers, as do Cara and Curtis Leopardo of Bonnie & Clyde Media.

“We’re excited to take viewers deep in to the heart and craziness of the modern Capone family business,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel.

“In addition to family and food, The Capones cast also love movies and they will give our viewers their personal movie recommendations in surprising and fun behind the scenes interviews.”
