Over/Under filming in Carroll Gardens back in August 2011
The plot of the series centered on Paul (played by Steven Pasquale), a day trader with a gambling problem, who gets fired from his job and moves to Brooklyn with his wife and child. There, he meets Marino (Anthony Carrigan), an expectant father. Together, the two start a high end bookie business.
The script for Over/Under was written by Sheila Callaghan, who set the action in a fictional neighborhood called Kerrigan Gardens, which is based very closely on Carroll Gardens, where Callaghan once lived and hopes to return to one day.
Unfortunately, Over/Under was not picked up as a series, but Callaghan contacted me recently to let me know that the pilot that was shot in August 2011 will air on USA Network as a 2-hour TV movie. It will premiere tomorrow, January 4th, at 10pm.
"I am very proud of the work we did. The neighborhood looks gorgeous, and my actors delivered some fine performances. Just watching it again makes me incredibly homesick. :)" Callaghan told me.
Don't forget to tune in tomorrow at 10 PM, everyone.
