NBC LOCKS IN SIZZLING NEW DRAMA WITH SUMMER PREMIERE OF 'WINDFALL' - ON THURSDAYS, BEGINNING JUNE 8 AT 10 P.M.

NBC Heats Up Summer With "Windfall" Stars Luke Perry, Lana Parrilla, Jason Gedrick, Sarah Wynter and D.J. Cotrona

BURBANK, Calif. -- March 23, 2006 -- NBC announced that "Windfall," a new drama starring Luke Perry ("Beverly Hills, 90210"), Lana Parrilla ("Boomtown"), Jason Gedrick ("Boomtown"), Sarah Wynter ("24") and D.J. Cotrona ("Skin"), that follows 20 lottery winners after their unexpected good fortune, will premiere on Thursday, June 8 (10-11 p.m. ET). The announcement was made by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

"This is an engaging and dramatic series with an extremely talented cast," said Reilly. "Windfall is an important component of our summer lineup and exemplifies our commitment to quality year round original programming."

"Windfall," from executive producer Laurie McCarthy ("Felicity," "CSI: Miami") follows 20 lottery winners in the wake of winning a massive, 386 million-dollar lottery. Unfortunately, their initial ecstasy is tempered by the romantic, social and family complications caused by instant wealth.

At the center is a close-knit foursome who have known each other since college when the "wrong" spouses were in love. Luke Perry stars as Peter Schaefer, a devoted husband to Nina (Lana Parrilla) and father of two. Parrilla finds herself caught between her love for her husband and the deep feelings she has for her college beau and her husband's best friend, Cameron Walsh, played by Jason Gedrick. Sarah Wynter plays Cameron's loving but suspicious wife.

A relative stranger to their circle is D.J. Cotrona as Sean Mathers, who finds that winning the lottery threatens to expose a dark secret in his past. Also, for Damien Cutler (Jon Foster, "The Door in the Floor") a rebellious teen, winning the cash means he is set free from his parents -- with millions in his pocket. Alice Greczyn ("The Dukes of Hazzard") stars as Frankie, a 16-year-old girl whose separated parents' newfound wealth sets off a marital war. Rounding out the cast is Jaclyn DeSantis ("Road Trip") who plays Maggie Hernandez, a nurse whose generous heart and newfound wealth prove to be a dangerous combo.

McCarthy is the series co-creator, executive producer and head writer. Gwendolyn Parker co-created the pilot. David Semel directed the pilot. "Windfall" is a production of Regency Television
