New Naples-Set Series ‘Bastards of Pizzofalcone’ Scores Record TV Ratings in Italy

7 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome – A new Naples-set TV crime series, “The Bastards of Pizzofalcone,” is scoring stellar ratings in Italy, grabbing more than one-fourth of the country’s regular viewing audience.

Directed by Carlo Carlei (“Fluke,” “Romeo & Juliet,”), one of the few Italian directors with Hollywood credentials, “Bastards” is based on a bestselling series of noir novels about a ragtag team of detectives. The show has a tenderness at its core that stands in sharp contrast to the gritty “Gomorrah,” Italy’s top TV export, though both are set in the atmospheric southern Italian port city which is also the backdrop of Elena Ferrante’s popular novels.

“Bastards” concluded its six-episode run Monday night, scoring a whopping 26.7% audience share on pubcaster Rai’s Rai 1 flagship station, with 6.9 million Italians tuning in. It averaged a 26% share throughout, despite strong competition from “Celebrity Survivor” on Mediaset, which on Monday pulled an 18.9% share.
