Premieres Sunday, June 5 at 10 PM ET/PT on AMC
“Feed the Beast” tells the story of Tommy (David Schwimmer) and Dion (Jim Sturgess) who are like brothers. With all the love – and all the complications – that comes with it. Dion can’t stay out of trouble. Tommy can’t move past it. For two friends on the brink of losing everything, a dusty pipe dream of opening up an upscale restaurant in their hometown of the Bronx is all they have left to turn their lives around.
The cast also includes Michael Gladis (“Mad Men,” “House of Lies”), as Patrick Woichik, aka The Tooth Fairy, the soft spoken, brutally intimidating local mobster with a penchant for pulling teeth; Lorenza Izzo (The Green Inferno, Sex Ed), as Pilar Herrera, a woman who meets Tommy in a grief group, and is desperately searching for true love; Christine Adams (Batman Begins, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), as Tommy’s late wife Rie Moran, John Doman (“The Wire,” “The Affair”), as Tommy’s father Aidan Moran, a shrewd and ruthless businessman and unapologetic racist; and Elijah Jacob (“Spot On”) as Tommy’s ten year old son TJ Moran.
Following the premiere, “Feed the Beast” moves to its regular Tuesday night time slot on June 7th. On that night, we are offered an encore of the show’s premiere episode at 9 p.m. ET and the all-new second episode at 10 p.m. ET.
