A web series about infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger came about through personal sacrifices learned early in his life, says Jeff Hennessy, who wrote, directs, produces and acts in Whitey. Bulger was caught in Santa Monica, California, after 16 years on the run. Jeff’s life turned upside down in 1971 when both parents died in a plane crash. At 15, the “silver spoon” son of a prosperous family in Wellesley, MA, Jeff had to dig deep inside for determination to carry on. He learned the value of sacrifice and persistence in reaching his goals.
