BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Cameras are rolling yet again in Buffalo. This time, we're home to a TV show pilot episode called "For Nothing" which will feature local and national celebrities.
"It's based on books of the same name...they're mafia genre. A lot of death, mayhem, and political intrigue," said book author and show creator Nicholas Denmon.
You'll see some familiar faces, like Buffalo Bills Offensive Lineman Jon Feliciano.
Feliciano says Denmon is a fan of his and asked to him to play "The Muscle" in his TV debut.
"On the field I'm out there with 10 other guys with a helmet on...out here I'm vulnerable, I haven't done this before, but I believe pushing yourself makes you grow as a person," said Feliciano.
He'll share the screen with the likes of Michael Madsen and Daniel Baldwin.
Most of the cast and crew have ties to Western New York. And the best part? It'll be all about the Queen City.
"It's my home, my family's from here. It's one of those places that I think in the national spotlight gets ignored a bit and for me it became a personal mission to make sure we filmed it there," said Denmon.
The opening sequence will feature WNY landmarks.
"Hopefully when you're watching these opening credits, you'll say 'wow I actually live here, I ate there, I walk by there," said Denmon.
They'll be shooting until the beginning of March. When filming is done, they'll pitch the show to networks and streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and HBO. They're anticipating major success.
