Trimark seals ‘Don’ vid deal

Trimark has acquired “Mario Puzo’s the Last Don” for domestic homevideo distribution, excluding pay-per-view and video-on-demand.

The homevid version will feature additional scenes containing nudity and violence deemed too graphic for TV.

The three-parter, which recently aired on CBS, scored victories in households for all three of its installments, and averaged a 15.9 rating/25 share, making it the second-highest-rated miniseries of the 1996-97 season.

Puzo’s novel remained on the New York Times bestseller list for nine weeks this spring.

The mob saga stars Danny Aiello, Joe Mantegna, Daryl Hannah, Jason Gedrick, Penelope Ann Miller, k.d. lang and Kirstie Alley. It was directed by Graeme Clifford.
