NYPost.com reports, “The Travel Channel has ordered up a real ‘Slice of Brooklyn.'”

“The network has greenlit a pilot for a series based on Brooklynite Tony Muia’s pizza-themed bus tour, ‘A Slice of Brooklyn.’ The $75 lunchtime tour takes pizza fans on a ride through Brooklyn, with stops for slices at famous pizzerias Grimaldi’s — no wait necessary — and L&B Spumoni Gardens, while detailing pizza’s history from its native Italian origins to its transatlantic journey to Brooklyn. Along the way, tourgoers are also taken to famed sites including Brighton Beach, Bay Ridge’s ‘Gingerbread House’ and the Brooklyn Army Terminal, where Elvis Presley shipped out to Germany. Of course, no Brooklyn tour is complete without stops at movie locations from films like ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ ‘GoodFellas’ and ‘Scent of a Woman.’”

“The proposed TV series will star Muia and his neighborhood buddies.”
