The podcast revealing the true story of Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco (played by Johnny Depp in the movies), released the first episode of the second season of their show Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco on Wednesday, April 28, 2021
From Jam Street Media, Actor Leo Rossi, and retired FBI Agent Joe Pistone team up for a season that dives deeper into the Donnie Brasco operation after the arrests were made.
“What a great experience it was doing season one of Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco,” Pistone stated, “In season two we will bring you unheard tape recordings between me and the gangsters I infiltrated in the mafia. My appreciation to all the fans of Deep Cover.”
Hosts Leo Rossi and Joe Pistone discuss “The Pizza Connection Trail” and “The Commission Trial”, the most expensive trial in New York City history where Pistone finally took the stand against the mafia men he spent nearly every day with for six years undercover.
They also sit down with former mob member Michael Franzese about his time overseas and the real reason why he finally left the FBI.
“Just when I think I know everything there is to know about Joe’s undercover work, he’ll pull a rabbit out of his ass and surprise me!” Rossi said. “I think the big difference between Joe and I is that I talk before I think and Joe thinks before he talks. That’s why he stayed alive in his undercover work.”
“These guys have something special that the fans have come to love. I am so grateful to get work with Joe and Leo,” said Matty Staudt, President of Jam Street Media.
