The Fanelli Boys is a sitcom that aired on NBC.

Following the death of her husband, Theresa Fanelli is prepared to sell the family business (a funeral home) to her son Anthony and move from Brooklyn to Florida. Thwarting her plans are the arrival of her younger sons Ronnie, who had just dropped out of school, and Frankie, whose engagement has just been broken. Another brother, the slightly disreputable Dom , is between hustles. Anthony learns that the funeral home is about $25,000 in debt, which he had not counted on. Soon, all of the boys are back at home with their mom, just like the old days. Advising the family, somewhat dubiously, are Theresa's brother, a Catholic priest known as "Father Angelo".
