Joey G is a story inspired by true life events. The lead character is played by Joe Giambra, an ex cop from Buffalo New York, who both befriended and busted members of the Buffalo mafia. Joe Giambra, as a police detective, busted Paddy Calabrese, a mafioso who was the first mob member to testify against his own.
