"Boomtown" is Back, Wednesdays on HDNet

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - DALLAS - June 15, 2005 - "Boomtown," winner of the 2003 Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama, returns to television Wednesday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET, only on HDNet.

Hailed by critics and viewers alike, Boomtown depicts crime in Los Angeles from the very different perspectives of the four groups most intimately involved in the pursuit of justice -- the police, the citizens, the politicians, and the media -- and artfully illustrates how they interconnect.

"HDNet is a great outlet to provide Boomtown's loyal, die-hard fans another opportunity to watch this exceptional series," says Bruce Casino, Senior Vice President, NBC Universal Television Distribution.

"We are proud to be the only place that Boomtown fans can watch this unique crime drama series in its original 1080i HD format," said Mark Cuban of HDNet.

Boomtown features Joel Stevens (Donnie Wahlberg, "Band of Brothers") as an emotionally drained, dedicated detective; "Fearless" Bobby Smith (Mykelti Williamson, "Forrest Gump") as Stevens' easy-going, daredevil partner; David McNorris (Neal McDonough, "Minority Report") as a politically savvy and ambitious Deputy D.A.; Ray Hechler (Gary Basaraba, "Brooklyn South") as a veteran patrol officer, Tom Turcotte and (Jason Gedrick, "The Last Don") as a beat cop struggling to prove himself.

Nina Garbiras ("The $treet") stars as Andrea Little, a tough metro reporter whose private life is less than perfect and Teresa Ortiz (Lana Parrilla, "Spin City") as a compassionate paramedic who has already seen too much suffering.
