Set in New York City and written by career cop Michael Lovaglio, "The Night Never Sleeps" follows the journey of New York Street Crimes Sergeant Thomas Cavanaugh (Dan Brennan) during the course of one night as he and his partner Rourke (Stephanie Finochio) hunt down murderers of one of their task force. Through the course of the night it becomes clear that those responsible are the Chicos Locos gang, headed by local drug dealer Victor Vargas (Jose Hernandez Jr.) and enforced by the ruthless psychopathic killer Iceman (Russ Camarda). Cavanaugh begins to realize that Vargas' gang may be getting help... from inside the police force. Internal Affairs Inspector Romanelli (Armand Assante) tips Cavanaugh off to the fact that there may be something rotten in his task force. Boundaries are crossed, lines are blurred...How far will Cavanaugh go for justice. Gritty, dark and authentic, "The Night Never Sleeps", with a driving score, and standout performances, evokes the spirit of films like "Taxi Driver" and "The French Connection." If you want to kill the Devil, you have to go to Hell to do it. ~ Synopsis provided by Russ Camarda
