<p>Miami, July 20, 2011- HBO Latin America announced the July 31st premiere of the eighth and final season of hit comedy series Entourage. With the enticingly fast-paced world of Hollywood as its signature backdrop, the Emmy® Award-winning production spotlights the ups and downs of hot young star Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier), and his hometown entourage: manager Eric (Kevin Connolly), half-brother Drama (Kevin Dillon), and close friend Turtle (Jerry Ferrara).&nbsp;</p><p>When we last left them, Vince had gone off the deep end after the boys’ failed attempt to stage an intervention for his excessive boozing and not-so-recreational drug use.&nbsp;Now, Vince is back from a stint in rehab and ready for a new pet project, while each of his crew deal with their own personal and professional challenges.&nbsp;</p><p>As Season 8 begins, super-agent Ari Gold (Golden Globe and 3-time Emmy®-winner Jeremy Piven) and Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves) have recently separated; Eric has broken up with Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui) after a prenup debacle, and is running his own management company with Scott Lavin (Scott Caan); Drama is shooting his animated series, Johnny’s Bananas, with Andrew Dice Clay; and Turtle is invested in the Avion tequila line and starting a new business venture.&nbsp;</p><p>This season, the stakes are higher, and the money and temptations greater than ever. Spinning a fictional yarn within the real-life world of LA’s movie studios, nightclubs and mansions, the final season of Entourage will answer the burning question of whether or not our longtime buddies from Queens can achieve the successes of which they have always dreamed.</p><p>Cast regulars include Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Jeremy Piven, Perrey Reeves and Scott Caan, along with Rex Lee as Lloyd and Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh.
