“There’s nothing like creating work that makes people happy!”
Robert Bruzio is a writer/producer/actor/director who always strives to blend exciting entertainment with emotional story lines and complex characters. “That is our responsibility as story tellers and there is always a way to do it as long as you dig.”
His most recent feature screenplay, BOTTOM OF THE 9th (formerly STANO) follows a man who returns to the Bronx after serving 17 years in prison for a violent mistake he made as a kid that ultimately robbed him of a professional baseball career and the love of his life. The movie stars Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara will be released July 19th, 2019. The movie is directed by Raymond DeFelitta (CITY ISLAND, MADOFF) and Chartoff Productions (ROCKY BALBOA, CREED, CREED 2) along with 3:59 (La BARE) are producing.
Robert is presently working on a new screenplay titled ONE LAST SONG, which also touches on the theme of last chances, but in the music industry.
In addition, he is developing a TV series called TEITEL BROTHERS, based on a true story about a Jewish family’s struggle when opening an Italian grocery store in a predominately Italian neighborhood. Despite the cultural conflicts, organized crime, government threats and a mix of family loyalty and strife, they managed to build a food empire.
Robert has completed two screenplays for Singapore-based film finance company Salt Media and Entertainment. One is titled LEADING WITH HONOR, about the true story heroics of a Vietnam POW who managed to survive the daily tortures at the “Hanoi Hilton” and return home with honor.
He is also coming on board as a producer and head writer on a series titled MULBERRY STREET, together with Roman Way Productions.
Earlier in his career, Robert directed the music video for Twisted Sister’s cover of Oh Come All Ye Faithful, which was voted #1 on VH1Classics and on Yahoo!
