My friend author Nick Pileggi helped me as much as he could, in spite of his agent, in making this film. He had agreed to sit for an interview, but got called off by his agent and his new TV show, Vegas. He asked to view it. He said about the film, “In Gangland Wire, Gary Jenkins tells the story in a way only an insider could. He captures the tragicomic aspects of this true crime tale, told by the players themselves through excerpts of the wiretaps and interviews of law enforcement and other eyewitnesses to the events.”
And the attached photo is F.B.I. agents Leone Flossi, Shea Airey and Bill Ouseley taking Nick Civella to be booked for a gambling conspiracy charge.
