    Hollywood could be coming to Hagerstown.

    Forget the real housewives in D.C. -- Hagerstown could be getting the star treatment.

    A production company is pitching a reality show starring a local pizza owner who moonlights as a professional wrestler.

    Vinnie Schiano DiCola owns Rocky's Pizza and Cafe Napoli. He and his son, Rocky, spend their days at the pizza shop on North Potomac Street. But when darkness falls, they head to the Superior Pro Wrestling Training Center.

    "There's no time for me to do anything but the pizza shop and wrestle," Vinnie Schiano DiCola told The Herald-Mail. "We have talent. I'm not conceited -- I'm convinced. It's just a matter of having Hollywood see it."

    And that's a big possibility. The father-son duo -- which trains with professional wrestler John Rambo, according to The Herald-Mail -- caught the eye of Fremantle Media North America. (That's the production company behind "American Idol," in case you didn't know.)

    This week, Fremantle shot footage of the Sciano DiColas in Hagerstown and a wrestling match in West Virginia. Now the footage is being edited into a pitch to show network big wigs.
