Amazon has set a January 22 premiere for Mad Dogs, the hourlong thriller-comedy series whose pilot streamed during Amazon pilot season earlier this year. Created by Cris Cole and based on his UK show, Mad Dogs will be available exclusively for Amazon Prime members in the U.S., UK, Germany and Austria. The first episode is available to Prime users now.
Mad Dogs follows the increasingly dark occurrences stemming from the reunion of four friends since college (Steve Zahn, Michael Imperioli, Romany Malco and Ben Chaplin) who now are in their 40s and at very differing places in their lives. Brought together for an exotic vacation to celebrate the early retirement of their wealthy friend Milo (Billy Zane), the party becomes a nightmare of deception, lies and murder, forcing the quartet to survive by trusting the people they least should: one another.
Also starring in the series are Rachael Holmes, Phil Davis, Maria Botto, Adria Tennor and Allison Tolman. Directors during the debut season include Uta Briesewitz, John David Coles, Randall Einhorn, Guy Ferland, Alex Graves, Ted Griffin, Clark Johnson , Charles McDougall, Mark Piznarski and Craig Zisk.
Mad Dogs is executive produced by Cole, Shawn Ryan, Marney Hochman, Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie and Charles McDougall. Luillo Ruiz and Ken Topolsky are prodicing.
