The HBO® comedy series ENTOURAGE, executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, takes a look at the day-to-day life of Vincent (Vince) Chase, a hot young actor in modern-day Hollywood, and his entourage. He's brought with him from their hometown in Queens, NY: manager Eric, half-brother Drama, and friend Turtle. The series draws on the experiences of industry insiders to illustrate both the heady excesses of today's celebrity lifestyle, as well as the difficulty of finding love and success in the fast track of show biz. Now that the boys are getting used to the perks of stardom, Eric, along with super agent Ari, keep Vince's star rising while making sound decisions for a long-lasting career in a world of fleeting fame.

Adrian Grenier ("The Devil Wears Prada," "Hart's War") stars as Vince; Kevin Connolly ("Antwone Fisher," "John Q") plays Eric, Vince's closest confidant who's learning the rules of the business 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; and Jerry Ferrara ("Grounded For Life," "Leap of Faith") plays Turtle, the house manager who's always up for a good time. Jeremy Piven ("Smokin' Aces," "Old School") plays Ari, Vince's aggressive, high-powered agent, who clashes with Eric over his client's decisions.

ENTOURAGE has been nominated for seven Emmy® Awards this year, including Outstanding Comedy Series. The 59th Primetime Emmy Awards will be telecast by the FOX Television Network on Sunday, September 16th, live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
