A&E deals pair of ‘Kings’

Hunter will helm Pileggi script

Donnie Wahlberg and Jason Gedrick will topline the A&E original movie “Kings of South Beach.”

Two-hour is based on true story of nightclub impresario Chris Paciello, who revived the South Beach scene with aid of the mob.

Feature scribe Nick Pileggi (“Goodfellas”) wrote the script, which will be directed by Tim Hunter (“Cold Case”).

“Kings” is one of three pictures A&E put into production last month (Daily Variety, April 17). Others include the romantic comedy “Wedding March,” starring John Stamos as a gay event planner, and disaster movie “Wildfires,” about a firefighter battling a blaze in Yellowstone National Park.

Production on “Kings” begins this month in Puerto Rico. Grosso-Jacobson Communications produces in association with Sony Pictures TV.

Wahlberg and Gedrick starred together in NBC’s “Boomtown.” Wahlberg’s credits include “Saw II,” “The Sixth Sense” and HBO’s “Band of Brothers.” Gedrick stars in the upcoming NBC series “Windfall.”
