'Boomtown' to debut on AXN 5 January

MUMBAI: After flagging off the new year with a non stop movie marathon, the action adventure channel will premiere new acquisition Boomtown.

A crime drama, which analyses a crime from the eyes of different people, will start airing every Monday from 5 January 2003 at 10 pm.

Donnie Wahlberg

Recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting 2003, Boomtown has been ranked number one in the The Best of 2002 TV listings.

A slickly shot NBC drama, Boomtown is a story of seven people, each from a different walk of life, including two world-weary Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) cops, an ambitious District Attorney, the hope-giving paramedic and the nervy newspaper beat reporter.

Mykelti Williamson

Each week, as a new crime takes place, each person recounts the incident as he or she saw it - like the missing parts of a puzzle - pieces of information about the crime as it took place.

As the series unfolds, the unsung heroes of Boomtown become heroes to the millions of people that they give hope to, and angels to the rest who seek comfort and understanding in the City of Angels.

The drama stars Donnie Wahlberg, Jason Gedrick, Neal McDonough and Lana Parilla and is directed by Emmy winner Graham Yost and Jon Avnet.

Neal McDonough

Speaking about his character as Detective Joel Stevens, Donnie Wahlberg says, " Joel is as close to perfect on the outside as one can be. He's smart, gifted, and professional. All of his flaws are hidden, and the challenge for him is to keep them hidden." 

Best known for his critically acclaimed role as Bubba in the Academy Award-winning film Forrest Gump Mykelti Williamson stars as Detective Bobby 'Fearless' Smith in the series.

Jason Gedrick

While Neal McDonough stars as the brash young DA David McNorris, never afraid to take on the bad element while hamming it up for the camera - all in the name of truth, justice and the American way.

Critically acclaimed actor Jason Gedrick, stars as disgruntled police officer Tom Turcotte, who's disappointed at the way he had to take the rough road, and that another managed to cruise through.

Nina Garbiras

While that sums up the male cast, the female cast on the show includes Nina Garbiras as reporter Andrea Little.

Lana Parrilla

Angie Ordonez of Spin City Lana Parrilla, who starred opposite Charlie Sheen during the 2000-0l season, completes the seven people group as the paramedic Teresa Ortiz.

Brought on board to build up the drama band alongside espionage show 24 and CSI, Boomtown should be pivotal in building up the action and adventure channels lifestyle and fiction segment.
