Forget the Real Housewives, Mafia Wives debuts March 2011 on VH1.
The series involves a group of “four women who are struggling to make ends meet while their husbands or fathers spend time in jail for ‘Mob-related activities” and will contain a 10-episode run.
According to show co-producer Ben Silverman:
“TV is a character-based medium, and the women featured inside this show are so dynamic and interesting,” while adding, “Clearly it’s the world of ‘The Sopranos’ coming to life in a reality environment.”
Filming for the show begins next month, however no names have been dropped for the show at this time.
