HBO Comedy Series "Entourage" Visits Auto Club Speedway For Taping
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (May 14, 2009) – The HBO hit comedy series Entourage recently made a two-day stop at Southern California’s premier motorsports facility – Auto Club Speedway.
Auto Club Speedway got a taste of international flair on track as cast members Kevin Connolly (Eric), Adrian Grenier (Vince), Kevin Dillon (Drama), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle), shot an episode which included the new Ferrari California – the latest edition to the new generation of Ferraris.
The episode is scheduled to air in July.
Entourage, in its sixth season, takes a look at the day-to-day life of Vincent (Vince) Chase, a hot young actor in modern-day Hollywood, and his entourage. He's brought with him from their hometown in Queens, NY: manager Eric, half-brother Drama, and friend Turtle. 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.
Auto Club Speedway continues to serve as a popular backdrop for many of today’s television programs and commercial spots. In February, the NBC hit show “The Biggest Loser” taped a segment for its show at ACS, with a little help from NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer who make a special appearance on a March episode.
Also in February, Hamburger Helper taped one of its latest TV spots, starring Bowyer, at the Speedway.
