Une série financée par Rogers Media sur le crime organisé à Montréal. Bad Blood raconte la montée et la chute de Vito Rizzuto comme chef de la mafia sicilienne à Montréal. Alain Desrochers produit la série mais il s'agit essentiellement d'une production Torontoise, filmée à Montréal et Sudbury exclusivement en anglais et dont la promotion se fait principalement dans le Canada anglais. La série de six épisodes débute sur CityTV le 21 septembre à 20hrs.
"Bad Blood is a story of family, loyalty, deceit, power, greed and ultimately revenge. Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto is a criminal anomaly – the only man to bring peace among the disparate wings of the Montreal crime world who would serve as a de facto CEO while ensuring a lucrative payday for all. When Rizzuto is suddenly arrested and extradited to Colorado’s Supermax Prison for the 1981 murders of three Bonanno crime family members, the powerful empire he built begins to crumble. Rizzuto watches helplessly as his family and friends are killed one by one. Upon his release from prison in October 2012, a Shakespearean-level revenge tale unfolds, leading to the brutal murders of his closest companions, and ultimately, to the death of Rizzuto himself."
Globe and Mail, "Montreal mafia series Bad Blood is bloody good"

Finally the huge crappy industrial building on the southeast side of Jarry and Viau is either going down or it'll be part of a large redevelopment!! The block is completely fenced in and the walls are being stripped and all the insides are being gutted..Let's hope for the first 20+ storey tower for the east end...the project belongs to the very deep pocketed Saputo clan and their associates.
