NEW YORK, NY, April 1, 2016 – AMC today announced that the network’s upcoming original series “Feed the Beast,” is set to premiere on Tuesday, May 31st at 10pm ET/PT. The series, starring David Schwimmer (“American Crime Story,” “Band of Brothers,” “Friends”) and Jim Sturgess (21, Across the Universe, Cloud Atlas), is a drama about two best friends, Tommy Moran (Schwimmer), and Dion Patras (Sturgess) who take one last shot at their dream of opening a restaurant.
“Feed the Beast” tells the story of Tommy (Schwimmer) and Dion (Sturgess) who are like brothers. With all the love – and all the complications – that comes with it. Dion can’t stay out of trouble. Tommy can’t move past it. For two friends on the brink of losing everything, a dusty pipe dream of opening up an upscale restaurant in their hometown of the Bronx is all they have left to turn their lives around.
Additional casting for the series includes Michael Gladis (“Mad Men,” “House of Lies”), who will play Patrick Woichik, aka The Tooth Fairy, the soft spoken, brutally intimidating local mobster with a penchant for pulling teeth; Lorenza Izzo (The Green Inferno, Sex Ed), who will play Pilar Herrera, a woman who meets Tommy in a grief group, and is desperately searching for true love; Christine Adams (Batman Begins, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), who will star as Tommy’s late wife Rie Moran, John Doman (“The Wire,” “The Affair”), who will play Tommy’s father Aidan Moran, a shrewd and ruthless businessman and unapologetic racist; and Elijah Jacob (“Spot On”) who will play Tommy’s ten year old son TJ Moran.
“Feed the Beast” is produced by AMC Studios and Lionsgate in association with Clyde Phillips Productions. Executive producers are Phillips, Henrik Ruben Genz (“Bankerot,” “Borgen”), Malene Blenkov (“Bankerot”) and Piv Bernth (“The Killing,” “Forbrydelsen” and “Bron/Broen”)
