The Young Montalbano Premieres Exclusively on MHz Next Week

The Young Montalbano Premieres Exclusively on MHz Next Week 
FALLS CHURCH, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/24/12 --  Continuing on the
global popularity of the original Detective Montalbano series on its
primetime broadcast, MHz Networks has acquired The Young Montalbano
series.  
The prequel, produced by RAI, the Italian State broadcaster,
premieres nationally on MHz Worldview on October 29-November 3 at 9
PM ET.  
MHz Home Entertainment also releases the series on DVD the same day,
along with the original Detective Montalbano series and the largest
selection of international crime dramas on www.mhznetworks.org/shop
and finer retailers and online everywhere.  
The U.S. broadcast premier leads into a week-long marathon of the
Best of Detective Montalbano episodes, selected by MHz International
Mystery fans throughout the country, November 5-9 in primetime. 
In Young Montalbano, viewers and Andrea Camilleri detective novel
lovers (on which the series is based) get to know Salvo Montalbano
before he became the seasoned and mature chief detective of the
original series.  
In the prequel, Montalbano is new to Vigata and new to being a police
chief. He didn't always live in a glorious house by the sea, or have
Deputy Chief Mimi Augello as a best friend, or Fazio as a loyal
assistant. He didn't always go out with the beautiful Genoese
architect, Livia Burlando.  
The series, which premiered in Italy on RAI just this past February,
brings together the genesis of the friendships, the rivalries and the
romance as the players arrive to take their places in the beautiful
Sicilian town of Vigata.  
Young Montalbano joins other notable MHz International Mystery titles
such as Montalbano, Spiral, Brunetti, Don Matteo, Maigret, Van
Veeteren, Varg Veum, and Wallander.
