Once Upon a Time in Vigata, based on the novels of Andrea Camilleri, premieres January 9th, 2024 in the U.S. and Canada on MHz Choice!

Once Upon a Time in Vigata (RAI Com) is a trilogy of standalone movies based on the historical novels of Andrea Camilleri. 1880s Sicily – and the fictional town of Vigata – is the setting for three very different stories: bawdy, outrageous and drenching in Sicilian character and atmosphere, as is to be expected from the author of Detective Montalbano! The cast is a who’s who of Italian and Sicilian mysteries – Michele Riondino (The Young Montalbano, The War is Over), Ester Pantano (Makari – Sicilian Mysteries, Imma Tataranni), Tommaso Ragno (Monterossi) and Ninnni Bruschetta (The Bastards of Pizzofalcone) – to name just a few! The directors helming these gorgeous productions are also familiar names – Gianluca Maria Tavarelli (The Young Montalbano, Wake Up My Love) and Roan Johnson (Murders at Barlume). Forza!
