Oxygen’s ‘Unprotected’ Puts a Hit Out On One Gated Community

by Devon Thomas  |  02.21.2017

Oxygen released a comedic teaser for its upcoming unscripted mob-themed series Unprotected, set to premiere April 11.

In the 30-second promo, the Cantarellas—headed by reputed New York crime boss, Richard Cantarella and his family—roll into their Scottsdale, Ariz.-based gated community after leaving a witness protection program in New York. They receive a fearful welcome from their new neighbors as they drive to their new home in an ominous-looking black truck.

Shooting (no pun intended) took place in the family’s actual neighborhood, while the concept for the spot was developed in–house and brought to life by director Jean.
