"Depth Charge," A "Spike Guy Movie" To Premiere In HD
NEW YORK, July 28 -- Oscar(R) nominee Eric Roberts ("The
Dark Knight"), Jason Gedrick ("Desperate Housewives"), Barry Bostwick
("Spin City") and Chris Warren, Jr. ("High School Musical") star in the
Spike original movie, "Depth Charge," premiering on Monday, September 1
from 10 p.m. - 12 midnight (ET/PT) on Spike TV. "Depth Charge" premieres in
HD and is slated under the "Spike Guy Movies" umbrella that will air
throughout 2008. Spike TV's original "Spike Guy Movies" average nearly 1.5
million viewers each month.
"Depth Charge" is a pulse-pounding action film about a ship's doctor
(Gedrick) who must wage an internal war on a US nuclear powered submarine
when it is taken over by its very own disgruntled captain (Roberts). On the
eve of his retirement, Captain Krieg has staged a coup d'etat on the USS
Montana and is threatening to launch a nuclear missile on Washington D.C.
if he is not paid a one billion dollar ransom. It seems like a foolproof
plan, but Krieg failed to account for Doc, the seemingly harmless ship's
doctor who, together with Piersall (Warren, Jr.), intends to take the ship
back before the President (Bostwick) must make a very tough decision to
destroy the submarine and everyone on it.
RHI Entertainment presents an Alpine Medien Production in association
with Larry Levinson Productions and Grand Army Entertainment, LLC. "Depth
Charge" is directed by Terrence O'Hara, written by Dennis Pratt and
produced by Kyle Clark and Stephen Niver. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry
Levinson serve as executive producers.
