<<No, Buddy Cianci was not the inspiration for the fictional mayor of Providence on Waterfront, a TV pilot for CBS that is scheduled to begin filming in Rhode Island in a few weeks.

...

"The idea behind the show is that politics is local," Orman said. "There are other political shows on TV, but they are all on a more grandiose scale. The great thing about Rhode Island is that local, state and national politics are all on top of each other."

The show stars Pantoliano as Mayor Jimmy Centrella, described by trade journal The Hollywood Reporter as "wildly charismatic and ethically challenged." William Baldwin will play an ambitious state attorney general. >>

".....The show stars Pantoliano as Mayor Jimmy Centrella, described by trade journal The Hollywood Reporter as "wildly charismatic and ethically challenged." William Baldwin will play an ambitious state attorney general....."

well, there's the initial problem.... people will be confused as to just which of many RI mayors it might be, as well as which of many RI AGs it could be.... and if someone in the state, rather than the federal, system goes after the mayor we will all know it is a total flight of fancy!

And will they ever be able to do justice to the interconnectedness of everyone through marriage that we have here? NAAAHHH... that would be too much for the average viewer to believe. Now if the fictional AG's cousin is married to the fictional mayor's daughter... and they both went to PC.... hmmmmmm
