'Crash & Burn' to Premiere in HD Under the 'Spike Guy Movies' Umbrella
NEW YORK, March 12 -- Erik Palladino ("Over There," "ER"),
David Moscow ("Riding in Cars with Boys") and Michael Madsen ("Reservoir
Dogs") star in the Spike original movie, "Crash & Burn," premiering on
Sunday, March 30 from 10 p.m. - 12 midnight (ET/PT) on Spike TV. "Crash &
Burn" 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.
"Crash & Burn" is an adrenaline-pumping action film about an ex-con
working undercover for the FBI to expose a car theft ring. Kevin
(Palladino), a former professional car thief, is caught red-handed by the
FBI and offered a deal: bring down the car theft ring and become a free
man. Upon resurfacing, Kevin easily slips back into his old patterns of
boosting cars with his best friend, Hill (Moscow). Hill, unaware of Kevin's
new role, immediately brings him in on a deal he made with Vincent
(Madsen), a dangerous crime boss who offers a big payday upon delivery of
dozens of rare stolen cars. However, these cars are within the territory of
the MS-13, a ruthless gang willing to kill anyone who gets in the way of
their profits. Kevin must struggle to keep his FBI contacts happy, stay
under MS-13 radar and earn the trust of an already suspicious Vincent, all
while bypassing high levels of security to lift the rarest and most
expensive cars in the city.
"We are very excited to present this pulse-pounding story to our
viewers," said Bill McGoldrick, vice president of development, Spike TV.
"With hot cars, suspenseful action and talented performances by a
well-rounded cast, this movie really delivers."
