Synopsis/Details: 

Vampires of the North End is a dark romantic comedy, thriller, set in Boston's little Italy neighborhood.

The story opens with a bizarre murder on Salem St. A serial killer is killing off the residents of the neighborhood putting his own sick twist on “The Great Molasses Flood of 1919”. The Molasses Killer is draining the blood from his victims and filling their bodies with molasses. The serial killer is planning 21 killings in the hood.
James is the only daughter of the Mancini’s. She is also the only member of the family that is not aware she’s a vampire. Before her 21st birthday, she must complete her first kill. She is starting her career as a social worker for child services.

In the pilot episode we get to know the Mancini family. The Mancini’s have lived in Boston’s North End for hundreds of years. Leslie Mancini is the head vampire of the house hold. He runs a gelato shop called: 88 Flavors & Counting. All of the flavors are named after people. Leslie is the biggest Red Sox fan in Boston. He wears Red Sox branded clothing all year long.

Beni Mancini is the mother vampire, eternally going through menopause. She is a real estate broker/investor who specializes in flipping “zombie houses”.
Willy Mancini is the brother vampire who aspires to make it big as a movie director. He is working on his first low budget zombie movie called: “Freedom Trail Zombies”. His friends Loto, Parvankin, and Jedda are the actors in his movie.

I believe this would appeal to a wide range audience. This is not your traditional vampire series.. I think it would have the same appeal as “Stranger Things” with the right cast. I first wrote this as a feature script. I have a treatment for the TV Pilot available.
