"Entourage" premieres on HBO July 18th!
Vince is a sexy young movie star whose career is just taking off. To share the fun of the ride and keep him grounded, Vince looks to Eric, Drama and Turtle, his longtime pals from Queens. Together, they share the highs and lows of life in the fast lane of Hollywood, where the stakes are higher, and the money and temptations greater, than ever before.
From executive producer Mark Wahlberg, the new eight-episode comedy series ENTOURAGE kicks off SUNDAY, JULY 18 (10:00-10:30 pm ET), exclusively on HBO, followed by other episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time, immediately following new episodes of “Six Feet Under.” Wahlberg also makes a cameo appearance in the first episode of the show, which draws on the experiences of industry insiders.
Adrian Grenier (“Drive Me Crazy,” “Hart’s War”) stars as Vince, who slips easily into stardom. Kevin Connolly (“Antwone Fisher,” “John Q”) plays Eric, who’s learning the rules of Hollywood as he tries to help Vince make the right choices. Kevin Dillon (“The Doors,” “Platoon”) plays Vince’s half-brother Drama, whose own acting aspirations have been eclipsed by Vince’s success. Jerry Ferrara (“Grounded for Life,” “Leap of Faith”) plays Turtle, the least experienced of the group, who’s always up for a good time. Jeremy Piven (“Old School,” “The Larry Sanders Show”) plays Ari, Vince’s aggressive, high-powered agent, who clashes with Eric over his client’s decisions.
Also appearing in ENTOURAGE are Debi Mazar (“The Tuxedo”) as Vince’s publicist Shauna, Samaire Armstrong (“The O.C.”) as Ari’s assistant Emily, and Monica Keena (“Undeclared”) as Eric’s ex-girlfriend Kristen. In addition to Mark Wahlberg, cameo appearances in ENTOURAGE include Jessica Alba, Gary Busey, David Faustino, Sara Foster, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman.
Filmed at Hollywood locations, ENTOURAGE is created by Doug Ellin (“Kissing a Fool,” “Life with Bonnie”), who also writes for the series. Other writers include Larry Charles (HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Seinfeld”), Stephen Levinson and Rob Weiss. Among the directors are Dan Attias (HBO’s “The Sopranos”), Adam Bernstein (“Scrubs,” HBO’s “Oz”), Julian Farino (“Flesh and Blood”) and David Frankel (HBO’s “Band of Brothers” and “Sex and the City”).
