The Finellis is my life’s work. After a 100-production stage career of over 30 years, and after filming over 90 national- and international film, tv, and commercial projects, I have dedicated myself to bringing the story of Tony and the rest of the Finelli family to the world.

What a joy to see that the unique qualities of this timeless “underdog” story (SitCom + Live Music + Animation) are being rewarded with prizes before it has ever been broadcast. “The Finellis” won 1st runner-up in the category of “Best Television Series” at the 2019 Mediterranean Film Festival in Cannes. I am also extremely proud to announce that at the 2019 NYC TV Festival “The Finellis” was the winner of two major prizes — Best TV Series and Best Director for our wonderful director, Joris Hermans

I am so proud of this show, our cast and crew and I cannot wait until “The Finellis” will be able to be screened all over the world.

Thank you all for taking this journey with me! Mark Janicello
