"NOTHING PERSONAL is one of nine new series ID is launching in the first quarter of 2011.

"The premiere episode of NOTHING PERSONAL tells the story of Larry 'Champagne' Carrozza," according to an ID press release.

"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.
