A&E is making an offer you can’t refuse: an eight-episode reality series entitled Godfather of Pittsburgh.

Centering around Italian-American gentleman’s club and restaurant owner Vince Isoldi and a family that includes his wife Carla, sons Adolfo, Enzo and Romeo, and six brothers and sisters who “rely on him for everything,” including jobs and houses, the series – according to the network – “follows Vince as he balances his family life while trying to walk the ‘straight and narrow’ and still succeed in business.”

The 60-minute episodes also finds Isoldi getting counsel from his father-in-law Junior Williams, known as the “Numbers King” of Pittsburgh, “now out of jail for racketeering,” A&E states.

The series will focus on family drama including Isoldi’s relationship with his brother-in-law Sam, who “has been ostracized from the family for crossing Vince” and his sister (and Sam’s wife) Rosa, who the network says “is now a point of contention for the whole family.”

Produced by Renegade 83 in association with Brookline Ice Films and Grainey Pictures for A&E Network, Godfather of Pittsburgh debuts November 10 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Mario Signore , Dan Partland, Colin Keith Gray, Timothy Flattery and Megan Raney-Aarons serve as exec producers for Renegade 83, while Brad Abramson, Fred Grinstein and Evan Lerner work the same roles for A&E.
