Described as a show within a show, it follows the adventures of Carmela Bovino, who came to America courtesy of 'some American television network vice-weasel, who was vacationing in Sicily with his hmmm...not his wife, put it that way.

Because life (and your diet) will never be the same. It’s a recipe for love, si amore, every Wednesday night 9:00pm EST, 3:00am Palermo time, on The Espresso Hour.

* Viewer warning: not for impressionable young children or older people that stupid or too sensitive to take his stuff literally.

Ultra-chic Madison Avenue isn’t known for its high crime rate, but try telling that to Detectives Joe Rocco and his sexy partner Lynn Bennett. They seem to run into it everyday, from attempted bank robberies by a former school friend, the rich and famous caught shoplifting at Bloomingdales, domestic squabbles of the over-privileged, nude tourists, identity and/or hot-dog thieves, and everything in between. The two very street-smart and stylish detectives are all over it, “because we passed the police test, so it’s our job” says the hardened Queens-born Rocco. “We break the chops that require breakin’ in order to keep the neighborhood and the rich prima donnas happy and quiet,“ he adds. Since zip code 10065 houses the most powerful and wealthiest sleazeballs who waddle about flashing their Amex Black (or is it Purple now?) Card, they don’t tolerate ‘ugliness’ or things that make them frown and cause wrinkles. The two detectives, part of the newly formed ACU (All Types of Crime Unit), could both pass for a Hollywood power couple themselves, with Rocco and Bennett sporting a wardrobe that would make many socialites jealous.
Yes, crime will be a laughing matter (at least with some of these nuts) and shooting on a street near you (with cameras, not guns...or maybe guns). Check your local listings.
