Set in the 1960s, The Middle Man explores the unique relationship between Rudy MacAteer, an FBI agent charged with taking down the Italian-American mafia, and his confidential informant, Irish-American gangster Mickey Flood. As Rudy finds himself forced to bend the laws he pledged to enforce, the duo’s actions inadvertently give rise to the Irish-American mob in this timeless Boston crime saga.

The Middle Man will be produced by Fox and Pearl Street Films, with Yebba and Mauro on board to co-executive produce. For Fox, The Middle Man marks the network’s second pilot order for the 2014-15 broadcast season.
