Sony TV to Produce 'Donnie Brasco'-Inspired Series

According to The Hollywood Reporter, production has begun on El Dandy, a Donnie Brasco-inspired crime drama from Sony Pictures Television and Televisa.

A Spanish-language series, El Dandy is slated to air in the United States on the Univision network UniMas and across multiple networks in Mexico.

Based on the Oscar-nominated 1997 crime drama Donnie Brasco, in which an FBI agent goes undercover in the mob, the gangster series follows a police officer who infiltrates a Mexican drug ring. The show will star Alfonso Herrera (The Perfect Dictatorship) and Damian Alcazar (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian).

El Dandy is just part of a multiyear deal for Sony and Televisa to co-produce twelve drama series, which includes Senorita Polvora, premiering on TNT and UniMas later this year.

El Dandy has no known release date.
