Jimmy Falcone was once a feared capo in the Gambini crime family, but when his associates insisted he whack his good old Uncle Cheech, Jimmy had to draw the line. When Jimmy pleads for Cheech's life to Don Gambini, their meeting ends with Jimmy hurling the crime boss out of a nineteen story window. Now with the mob out to kill him, Jimmy has no choice but to turn to the dark side and become a witness for the Feds. Jimmy and his family are sent into witness protection in cold, snowy Regina, where it's hard for a quick-tempered goodfella to live as a regular schnook among polite and friendly Canadians.
Originally developed for the Teletoon at Night Pilot Project, Fugget About It was created by Nicholas Tabarrok and Willem Wennekers, and developed by Jeff Abugov. Executive producers are Nicholas Tabarrok, Willem Wennekers, Jeff Abugov and for 9 Story, Vince Commisso and Steven Jarosz. 9 Story also handles international distribution. Series guest stars include Howie Mandell, Alan Thicke, Andrea Martin and Jason Jones (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart).
