Los Angeles, California (March 30, 2021) – Paradise City has just dropped! It’s an eight-episode drama series streaming on Amazon Prime, a spin-off from the 2017 film American Satan.

“From my Puerto Rican mother I learned that failure was never an option. From my Italian immigrant father, I learned that you can do anything you want, you just got to want it. Paradise City really hits home because of my time in the band Sworn Enemy. Being a touring musician around the world gave me a lot of the real-life experiences that I was able to bring into Paradise City, especially the world of my band Over It All. My Puerto Rican/Italian energy and my life on the streets always kept me grounded. Always wanting to speak from the heart. I lived a lot on the road and took all the bumps and bruises of rejection and the failures Pauly goes through. My character Pauly is based on my best friend Paulie Antignani who passed away in 2018. He was our drummer in Sworn Enemy” said Antonucci about his role as Pauly Antignani. Available now: http://smarturl.it/ParadiseCity
