NEW YORK (AP) - Mob daughter and author Victoria Gotti, described as a cross between Carmela Soprano and Danielle Steele, will be the subject of a new TV series on the A&E Network.
The cable channel said Wednesday it was beginning production on "Growing Up Gotti," a new TV series featuring the daughter of the late mob boss John Gotti.
Victoria Gotti and her three sons "will form the unpredictable, sometimes humorous and often startling centerpiece to the series," A&E said.
"We are thrilled to get this unbelievable access to the intimate life of a very public person and that of her family," said Robert Debitetto, A&E's senior vice president of programming.
No air date has been given for the series.
