Entourage is an American comedy-drama television series created by Doug Ellin that chronicles the rise of Vincent Chase — a young A-list movie star — and his childhood friends from Queens, New York City as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain of Hollywood, California.
The series aired in the USA on HBO from 18 July, 2004 to 11 September, 2011. There are 96 half-hour episodes in eight seasons.
Entourage originally aired in South Africa on DStv's GO channel (which became Vuzu in July 2009) from 4 April, 2007 to 14 November, 2011. It later aired on TopTV's Fox FX channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.
Season 7 originally aired on Vuzu from 3 January to 7 March, 2011, on Mondays at 21h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.
Season 7 premiered on Fox FX on Tuesday 11 September 2012, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly. There are 10 episodes in the seventh season.
Entourage, the Emmy-winning comedy series returns to take a none-too-serious look at the day-to-day life of Vince Chase, one of Hollywood's hottest young actors, and the three buddies he's brought with him from their hometown in Queens, NY: manager Eric, half-brother Drama and party pal/aspiring rap producer Turtle.
Together, they experience the highs and lows of life in the fast lane of Hollywood, where the stakes are higher, and the money and temptations greater than ever before.
Filmed on location in Los Angeles (including many well-known hot spots), the series draws on the experiences of industry insiders to illustrate both the heady excesses of today's celebrity lifestyle, as well as the difficulty of finding love and success in the fast track of show biz.
Based (at least partially) on the Hollywood experiences of executive producer Mark Wahlberg, the series spins a fictional yarn within the real life world of L.A.'s movie studios, nightclubs and mansions – with actors and celebrities passing through the lives of the four buddies who live and party in a mansion paid for by Vince's movies.
In Season 7: as Vince shoots an action movie directed by Nick Cassavetes, he is asked to perform a dangerous driving stunt. Eric and Ari intervene, but there may be no stopping it.
Now running a fledgling car service business, Turtle is frustrated when an employee named Alex (Dania Ramirez) causes problems for him.
Drama wants a job since his holding deal will expire in eight weeks, but Lloyd has not been forthcoming about his prospects, and Ari is the one who gives Drama a harsh reality.
