D'Antoni won an Academy Award in 1971 for the Best Picture, for The French Connection. He also won a Golden Globe award in 1972 for the Best Motion Picture Drama for The French Connection. He began his career on TV with the glamorous productions, "Sophia Loren in Rome," "Elizabeth Taylor in London," and "Melina Mecuri in Greece."

He was also the producer for Bullit in 1968. In 1973 he was the Director/Producer of The Seven-Ups. After The Seven-Ups, D'Antoni, who held the rights to French Connection II and Gerald Walker's novel, Cruising, eschewed feature filmmaking and turned his attention to television production where he enjoyed a lucrative contract with NBC.

D'Antoni's crime dramas are characterized by a cold, gritty, "street" perspective with documentary style, often filmed during the bleak New York winter months, and offer the viewer a realistic and often dangerous sense of being an insider, as opposed to using glamorous locations or produced sets.

D'Antoni's TV production credits include:

  • Shark Kill (1976)
  • Strike Force (1975)
  • Movin' On (1974),
  • In Tandem (1974)
  • Mr. Inside/Mr. Outside (1974),
  • The Connection (1973),
