Into the Heart of Italy
Day One: Lucca
One part 'Where Do I Come From,' one part 'Amazing Race,' one part 'The Restaurant,' this Bertolli branded series recruits Italian-Americans Marisa Tomei, Rocco DiSpirto and Dan Coretese to travel to the old country and uncover culinary and cultural mysteries. The producers even manage to cook up a little June-November romantic intrigue...if you can digest it. Hey, they are actors, not reality show contestants -- and the series was promoted during the Oscars and 'Desperate Housewives.' A bellweather of big budget celebrity web adventures to come.
