29th Street

Pesce wrote the 1991 movie 29th Street which was based on the first winner of the New York State Lottery. Pesce himself appeared in the movie but Anthony LaPagalia (of Without A Trace fame) portrayed Pesce on screen. Despite the movie portraying Pesce winning the lottery, he never actually was the first New York Lottery winner.
