8 Episodes 2004 - 2004
The HBO series Entourage followed the misadventures of rising Hollywood star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and the childhood friends he keeps close to him. Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) is his manager, Johnny "Drama" Chase (Kevin Dillon) is his trusted bodyguard, and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is his often incompetent driver/gopher. Vincent's agent is the loudmouthed, overbearing Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). The eight-episode debut season of the program finds Vincent weighing his options after becoming a breakthrough star because of his last film project. As Eric and Ari fight over the direction of Vincent's career, Drama tries to get an acting job on Vincent's newest movie, which is being made by a young director who does not't see eye-to-eye with Eric, even though Eric pushed Vincent to act in the project rather than take a million dollar payday to be in a probable blockbuster. Also, the guys consider attending a high school reunion, Eric gets involved with one of Ari's employees, and Vincent lets his newfound success bring him more luck with the ladies.
