Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher is moving out of its Hollywood studio and taking up residence for a week in an unidentified warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront to tape a series about the Mob, the New York Post reported Wednesday. The panel is expected to include former members of the mob, actors from The Sopranos, and members of the National Italian American Foundation who object to mobsters being depicted as Italians on crime shows. In an interview with the Post, Maher remarked: "Italian Americans object all the time to their portrayal, but I think there's a special issue here. As much as they complain about it, they also kind of secretly like the idea that people kind of know that maybe they could say: 'I could make a call.'"
