Performers, Cast and Crew:
Featuring a bevy of up-an-coming young talent, and set in a posh California suburb, THE HILLZ has all the trappings of a successful teen drama; this is tempered by a darkly comic, surreal tone. Steve 5 (Jesse Woodrow, CHASING THE DRAGON) is a first-year college student on course to become a professional baseball player; he returns home for summer break to find his neighborhood and old friends drastically different. His best friend Duff (Rene Heger, MTV's UNDRESSED) has become the sadistic leader of a gang of kids who take what they want, when they want it; drugs, money, and sex, are now in abundant supply, but the neighborhood is overrun with crime and ultra-violence. Unfortunately, Steve 5 wants what he can't have, the sexy Heather (Paris Hilton, THE SIMPLE LIFE); he struggles to navigate this new, almost anarchic territory, attempting to win Heather away from her apparently perfect boyfriend (model Jason Shaw).
Description by Image Entertainment:
Beneath the tranquil atmosphere of The Hillz, four affluent suburban teens are caught up in a web of spiraling violence, drug addiction and casual sex. After a year away at college, Steve 5 (Charmed's Jesse Woodrow) returns to find his neighborhood radically changed. His best friend, Duff (Rene Heger, MTV's Undressed), has become the sadistic head of a gang that has turned the beautiful suburban hills into an ultra-violent crime zone where drugs and sex are as plentiful as candy. Duff finally has respect, plenty of cash and cool new friends (including James DeBello, Swimfan). Finding himself lured into Duff's new life, Steve 5 struggles to stay true to his dream of becoming a professional baseball player and also trying to win the love of the sexy but unattainable Heather (Paris Hilton, The Simple Life). Combining the grittiness of Boyz N the Hood and the flavor of TV's The O.C., here's a comedic pulse-pounding adventure on the "hood's" leaf-strewn streets. Cast includes: Paris Hilton (Fox's The Simple Life), Rene Heger (In Enemy Hands, guest appearance in Gilmore Girls, guest appearance in Charmed), Jesse Woodrow (model, guest appearance in Charmed, Chasing the Dragon) and Jason Shaw (model, L.A. Knights, Liar's Club, guest appearance in Charmed). The Hillz also includes Eric Priestly (Port Charles), Vince Rimoldi (Camp), Silas Gaither (Survivor: Africa, Anger Management) and a cameo appearance from Trishelle Cannatella (MTV's The Real World).
