MUMBAI: US broadcaster NBC will air a drama Windfall with Luke Perry, Lana Parrilla, Jason Gedrick, Sarah Wynter and D.J. Cotrona.

The show follows 20 lottery winners after their unexpected good fortune and premieres on 8 June 2006.

NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly says, "This is an engaging and dramatic series with an extremely talented cast. Windfall is an important component of our summer lineup and exemplifies our commitment to quality year round original programming."

The show follows 20 lottery winners in the wake of winning a massive, 386 million-dollar lottery. Unfortunately, their initial ecstasy is tempered by the romantic, social and family complications caused by instant wealth.

At the center is a close-knit foursome who have known each other since college when the 'wrong' spouses were in love. Perry stars as Peter Schaefer, a devoted husband to Nina played by Parrilla and father of two. Parrilla finds herself caught between her love for her husband and the deep feelings she has for her college beau and her husband's best friend, Cameron Walsh, played by Gedrick. Sarah Wynter plays Cameron's loving but suspicious wife.

A relative stranger to their circle is Cotrona as Sean Mathers, who finds that winning the lottery threatens to expose a dark secret in his past. Also, for Damien Cutler a rebellious teen, winning the cash means he is set free from his parents -- with millions in his pocket. Alice Greczyn stars as Frankie, a 16-year-old girl whose separated parents' newfound wealth sets off a marital war. Rounding out the cast is Jaclyn DeSantis who plays Maggie Hernandez, a nurse whose generous heart and newfound wealth prove to be a dangerous combo.
