The production firm owned by Boston Native Mark Whalberg, known as ''Unscripted Productions'' is in negotiations to produce what is being termed as a Bio Documentary regarding the saga that began in 2014 between then Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan and then City Council Member and now Mayor Jasiel Correia II.
Prince Vaugh is the Vice President of Development and Casting for Unscripted Productions, has confirmed to WSAR that the project is in the developmental stages, and has been initially pitched to HBO and Nexflix, both of whom expressed interest in perhaps airing the bio doc if it actually comes to fruition.
Flanagan was recalled in December 2014, while Correia went on to challenge Former Bristol District Attorney and one year Mayor Sam Sutter, defeating him for a full two year term in 2015, and then being re elected in 2017.
Correia is now the subject of a 13 count federal indictment, including 9 allegations of wire fraud and four of alleged tax fraud.
Correia is due in Federal Court for a Pre Trial Hearing on December 6.
Some 6,000 signatures are being processed as part of a certification process, with a magic number of 2,510 that could trigger the second recall in a four year time frame of a Fall River Mayor.
