Piscopo, HBO pact for Jersey mini

'Bloomfield' named for thesp's hometown

Joe Piscopo and Avellino Entertainment have pacted with HBO to develop a historical miniseries, “Bloomfield Avenue.”

Mini is named for the thoroughfare from Newark (Piscopo’s hometown) to affluent communities in Essex County, N.J.

In the early development stages, “Bloomfield Avenue” is based on the true life stories of Italian immigrants, starting in the 1920s, running through the 1968 riots and concluding with today’s revitalization of Newark.

Piscopo founded Newark-based Avellino Entertainment with partners Sol Feldman and Mark Berson.
