Mob Town hosted its official LA premiere at The Los Angeles Film School and hit theaters nationwide and VOD on Friday, December 13th, 2019. The feature film stars David Arquette, P.J. Byrne, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Jennifer Esposito and Robert Davi, among many others. Directed and produced by Danny A. Abeckaser, written by Jon Carlo and Joe Gilford. Distributed by Saban Films.
“Mob Town” is inspired by an ill-fated Mafia summit meeting in 1957 in the small town of Apalachin, New York. State Trooper Edgar Croswell, (Arquette), became suspicious that mobsters were gathering at the rural estate of Joseph Barbara (Abeckaser). Croswell called in reinforcements and set up a roadblock. The mobsters, including prominent New York bosses Vito Genovese, Carlo Gambino, Joe Profaci and Joe Bonanno panicked, trying to flee the scene. The event revealed once and for all that the Mafia existed in America, forcing once-skeptical FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to ramp up his agency’s efforts to fight organized crime.
