TORONTO, June 17 /CNW/ - Life in Hollywood's fast lane can be an
intoxicating roller-coaster ride, changing every second, but for Vince, Eric,
Drama and Turtle, friends are for life. HBO Canada, a multiplex channel from
Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral Media's The
Movie Network (Eastern Canada), welcomes back the boys from Queens when the
sixth season of HBO's hit series Entourage premieres on Sunday, July 12 at
10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
After hitting some speed bumps over the last couple of years, the new
season will see Vince's (Adrian Grenier) career kicked back into high gear
after nabbing a role in the new Martin Scorsese film Gatsby. Also in season
six, Eric (Kevin Connolly) considers leaving the group nest for his own place;
Drama (Kevin Dillon) attempts to grab his share of the limelight with his
successful television series; and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) gets more involved in
his now public relationship with actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Meanwhile
super-agent Ari (Jeremy Piven) frenetically helms his growing agency with the
help of a new partner, Andrew Klein (Gary Cole), while his long-suffering
assistant Lloyd (Rex Lee) starts eying a big promotion.
Entourage also stars Canadian Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan, Eric's on- and
off-again girlfriend; Beverly D'Angelo as Ari's current business partner
Barbara Miller; Bow Wow as Charlie, Eric's client, and Debi Mazar as Shauna,
Vince's publicist. The series is executive produced and created by Doug Ellin,
and executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Denis Biggs, Rob
Weiss and Ally Musika.
Celebrities appearing as themselves in cameos in the new season include:
Tom Brady, Ed Burns, Zac Efron, 50 Cent, Jay Leno, Steve Nash, David Schwimmer
and Mark Wahlberg.
Entourage will be offered in High Definition on HBO Canada HD and will be
