Investigation Discovery Examines the Dark Deeds of Hired Hit Men in NOTHING PERSONAL

- Steve Schirripa Guides Audiences through the Passion-Driven Business of Professional Murder with Six Unique Tales of Blood Lust -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 27, 2011 -- The motive in murder-for-hire plots may vary from case to case, but for the hired hit man it's always business as usual. Plunge into the sinister undertaking of contract killings in NOTHING PERSONAL, Investigation Discovery's new series about mafia disloyalties, romantic infidelities, stale friendships and the trio of characters at their center: the conniving "client," the professional murderer, and the victim who never saw it coming. NOTHING PERSONAL premieres as a six-part series on Wednesday, March 9 at 10 PM ET on Investigation Discovery.

Each one-hour episode is hosted by true crime aficionado Steve Schirripa, whose mobster character Bobby Baccalieri was famously whacked on The Sopranos. Schirripa, who grew up on the fringes of the mob, had schoolmates who became hit men or, unfortunately, succumbed to the work of hit men. Seamlessly woven into the presentation of each story, Schirripa's commentary exposes viewers to an insider's view of the business of crime. Why did the victims have contracts on their lives? Who wanted them dead? And how did the hit men carry out their gruesome assignments? ID's audiences will meet the key players in each story and experience every side of the tale before learning how their relationships fatefully resulted in murder-for-hire.

"With the addition of Steve Schirripa as NOTHING PERSONAL's charismatic host, ID continues to strengthen its roster of well recognized and credible on-air talent presenting the network's dynamic storytelling," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "In fact, NOTHING PERSONAL is one of nine new series we are launching in the first quarter of 2011, all of which are expanding the scope of programming for ID, America's fastest growing network."

The premiere episode of NOTHING PERSONAL tells the story of Larry 'Champagne' Carrozza. With a penchant for expensive bubbly, Carrozza is a flashy young gangster who, after years of service to the Colombo crime family, thinks it's high time he gets promoted. However, it doesn't help his situation when Carrozza starts dating the beautiful daughter of one of the bosses. Eager to prove his loyalty, Carrozza joins notorious hit man 'Big Sal' Miciotta for a routine errand in Brooklyn. The ambitious 30-year-old figures the family is finally taking him seriously. They are. But they don't see him as an asset � they consider him a liability. Featuring an exclusive interview with 'Big Sal,' this episode of NOTHING PERSONAL reveals how the hit was conducted, as told by Miciotta himself, the man who pulled the trigger. Unraveling a story of adultery, drugs, and high-power crime, this is the story of why Champagne got popped.

NOTHING PERSONAL also covers romantic relationships that go bad, leaving one partner on the wrong end of a deadly plot. One of the more bizarre is the story of Mary Ellen Samuels, who hires a hit man to take out her husband. However, when her hit man starts stepping out of line, she doesn't go to the local business bureau; she hires another hit man to snuff out the first one. Ripe with twists and turns, each episode of NOTHING PERSONAL traces the motivation and planning, which leads people to resorting to murder-for-hire.

NOTHING PERSONAL is a Cineflix (NP) Inc. Production for Investigation Discovery with Simon Lloyd and Steve Schirripa as executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Diana Sperrazza is executive producer, Sara Kozak is vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
