Developed by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, the new American series stars Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Romany Malco (Weeds), Ben Chaplin (The Thin Red Line) and Billy Zane (Titanic).

Mad Dogs premieres on Friday 22 January 2016 on Prime Video and follows the reunion of a group of longtime, forty-something friends—a mixture of single, married and recently divorced, all seemingly at crossroads in their lives.

Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios commented: “Mad Dogs explores what happens when four school friends go on an exotic vacation that shockingly descends into a harrowing roller coaster that tests their mettle, their friendships and their very sense of identity. The show has a fantastic cast and is led by Shawn Ryan. We look forward to customers’ reactions.”

Executive producer Shawn Ryan added: “I loved working on a comedic, albeit dark, story like Mad Dogs and know that the performances by Steve, Michael, Romany and Ben will resonate with all who have had longtime friendships that evolve and change as the years go on.”

Starring Max Beesley, Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren, the original Mad Dogs ran for 14 episodes on Sky1 between February 2011 and December 2013.
