There are a few things you just don’t discuss if you’re hoping for reasonable, polite conversation: politics, religion, and pizza. Everyone has a different opinion on pizza. Is Chicago-style deep dish really pizza? Why do people consider it the best? Are New York slices the superior pie? Why can’t you get a decent slice on the west coast? All of these opinions have merit, and all are neither correct nor incorrect. Pizza is good. All kinds of pizza. But only some pizza is sold by Mulberry Street Pizza in Beverly Hills, where it’s likely the most expensive and decadent pizza in la la land.
And so, a TV show is born.
Sylvester Stallone is developing a comedy around the life of Mulberry Street Pizza owner Richie Palmer, who moved shop from New York to Beverly Hills decades ago to claim a piece of the Los Angeles pizza-empire pie. The series will focus on the cavalcade of characters that have popped into the shop over the years, and show the juxtaposition that comes from serving one of America’s favorite foods Hollywood’s elite. It seems like a saucy time.
And as we know, Stallone loves his pizza.
