"Latin Dragon" -- US Television Premiere

SPIKE TV Nationwide Premiere of "Latin Dragon" -- Wednesday, September 21 (9:00 - 11:00 PM, ET/PT)

HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2005 -- SPIKE TV will be premiering the pulse-pounding, adrenaline-filled groundbreaking movie "Latin Dragon," which introduces America's first mainstream latino martial arts action hero.

Latino hall of famer and martial arts champion Fabian Carrillo stars in the US Television Premiere of "Latin Dragon." Carrillo plays Danny Silva, a war veteran now serving the government as an undercover agent, who takes on his biggest foe yet: the street gangs hired by Bishop Thorn (Gary Busey) that have taken over his neighborhood. Unwilling to play by the rules set down by the criminals, Silva forgoes the use of guns and decides to battle the thugs with the strength of his fists, spirit and willpower, turning him into a real-life, modern-day superhero.

"The New York Times" called Fabian "The first Latin action hero and maybe the next great action hero of our time."
