Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Staten Island, New York - Nov 01, 2016 - New multigenerational drama The Fifth Borough from Stanulis Productions is filming on Staten Island. It symbolizes family. All kinds of families. You’re born into some, invited into others. Nick’s daughter is diagnosed with a brain tumor he needs money. Lots of it! On Staten Island, you may think you don’t have options but you always have family.
Families aren’t always about blood. But they are about Trust. Secrets. Loyalty. Family traditions supply rules and history to be passed down. Those old habits stick and die hard. So do enemies. Blood will flow!
Headlining the largely based New York cast is Staten Island local Steve Stanulis (The Networker, The Deuce) as Nico (Nick) Lehoux whose family is turned upside down when his daughter Skylar is diagnosed with a brain tumor. Turning to “Family” friends for fast cash.
The Island Family business is run by Angelo (Vincent Pastore/ The Sopranos). Angelo’s nephews are Sonny (Jeremy Luke/ Sully) and Charlie (Joseph Russo/ Jersey Boys) who are friends with Nick. They’re an informal crew along with Finn (Vincent Young/ 90210) and Mark (Wass Stevens/ Public Morals). Francesco, (Richard Grieco/ 22 Jump Street) displeased cousin, returning from California finds his seat has been filled, the pot starts to stir.
Nick left this life before, now is returning and never thought he had to do this again! Thankfully and happily married to Sophia, (Samantha Scaffidi/The Networker) with two children, Sophia works as an Assistant District Attorney and Nick’s illegal activities can no way be exposed.
There’s a wealth of drama and an amazing supporting cast, highlighting female roles and a host of local NY actors. Directed by John Bianco (Daredevil & The Sopranos). Source :
