Tony Muia, of A Slice of Brooklyn pizza tours, is starring in a new show on The Travel Channel that premieres tonight at 10pm. The show will follow Tony and his "consiglieri" (pictured above) as they highlight the food and history of their neighborhood while defending their turf against the threat of larger tour companies.

Slice founder Adam Kuban had this to say about the operation:

I went on Tony's tour a long time ago, when he was just starting it. You get so much more than pizza on his tour of Brooklyn—bits of trivia about the neighborhoods you roll through; a sense of how Brooklyn has changed, and stayed the same; a look at portions of the borough many folks (especially tourists) don't get to often enough. He is both a character and a genuinely nice guy."
