September 20, 2013


TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Frank D'Angelo is set to share some intimate conversations with several of the best-known legends of the movie industry in the new TV series, "Grand Legacy". These in-depth interviews, produced and hosted by Frank, are rare treats for viewers to get to see their favourites discuss their careers and the roles that made them famous, as well as discuss intimate topics never before revealed.

The first in the "Grand Legacy" series airs at 1AM tonight (Friday Sept. 20, 2013) on CHCH TV in Ontario and on CITY TV in Montreal featuring legendary Oscar nominated actor Robert Loggia. Frank spent two days at the Loggia home in California, where Robert discussed his acting career and many aspects of his personal life in intimate conversations with Frank - including one memorable sequence cooking together in Robert's kitchen.

It's been a busy summer for Frank D'Angelo as his first movie production Real Gangsters, a star-filled mob film, opened. The film continues to receive accolades; most recently it won four awards at the 'Action on Film International Film Festival' in Pasadena, California including Best Teleplay, Best Screenplay, Best Soundtrack and Best Picture. During the summer, the film also won Best Canadian Movie at the Italian Contemporary Film Festival in Toronto. And this weekend, Real Gangsters is nominated for 5 awards at the Movieville International Film Festival in Sarasota, Florida including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Cinematography. With the great response Real Gangsters has been receiving, film and television distributors have expressed keen interest and a distribution deal is in the works with a major distributor.

Real Gangsters has been a great accomplishment for first time movie maker Frank D'Angelo who not only produced and directed the film, but also wrote the story, and starred in the film along with a cast of seasoned actors. Frank also wrote the soundtrack and performs most of the music in the film. The soundtrack has also received a great response from radio stations across the USA with the single "Dreamer" from the soundtrack making it to the top 40 list and was the most increased and most added song on the MediaBase and AC Music Charts over the past few weeks.

In addition to the success of "Dreamer", the club mix of D'Angelo's "Break It Down", the third single from his Give Me One More Moment CD, has locked in 'double digits' and had a very impressive 'most added' action this week in all U.S. radio markets; it looks like it will continue to get stronger in the coming weeks as radio programmers continue to give it a thumbs up.

Fans of legendary movies and great music alike will find some great times ahead with Frank D'Angelo as this one-man tour-de-force continues to bring his personal style to the Canadian entertainment industry.
