New Michael Imperioli Drama in Development at HBO

Potential Series Loosely Based on Imperioli's Experiences as a Practicing Buddhist

Former “The Sopranos” star Michael Imperioli has teamed with Alex Berg (“Barry”)  to develop a scripted series that is loosely based on Imperioli’s experiences as a practicing Buddhist. The potential series is described as “a meta blend of fact and fiction.” Imperioli will write with Berg, with Amy Solomon as an executive producer.

Imperioli is best known for his Emmy Award-winning role as Christopher Moltisanti on the HBO mob drama “The Sopranos,” for which he was nominated for five Emmys and two Golden Globes, winning the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama in 2004. More recently, Imperioli had a small role in Regina King’s film “One Night in Miami,” playing famed boxing trainer Angelo Dundee.

His other credits include “The Last Full Measure,” “Goodfellas,” “Cabaret Maxime” and “Summer of Sam.” On the TV side, he recently starred in NBC’s “Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector” and played New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Showtime’s “Escape From Dannemora.”
