This season of “Mob Wives” has one new breakout star–Angela “Big Ang” Raiola. VH1 has seen how popular Big Ang has become and is set to give her her own television show.
According to the press release, the 10-episode show, also called “Big Ang,” has been developed by Jennifer Graziano in conjunction with Electus, The Weinstein Company and Left/Right and is set to premiere this summer.
“‘Big Ang’ will give viewers a glimpse into the life of one of reality TV’s most over-the-top and loveable characters. We’ll tag along as she hangs out with her family and friends, spends time at her increasingly popular Staten Island bar, The Drunken Monkey, and even hangs out with – ‘da wise guys.’ And yes her longtime friends from the original “Mob Wives” series will visit from time to time as will her loveable canine sidekick Lil’ Louis,” states the press release.
“I’ve known Big Ang since I was a kid and can always remember thinking, ‘this woman is a star!’” said Graziano of JustJenn Productions. “It gives me great pleasure to be in the position to show the world what I have always seen in her. Big Ang was on my mind for ‘Mob Wives’ from the start – I believe she was a great addition for season 2 and will be an even bigger force to reckon with on her own show! Watch out America… it’s Big Ang!”
