Brimstone Presskit




Co-Executive Producers:ETHAN REIFF

Even the best maximum-security penitentiary sustains an occasional escape. It happened on Devil's Island. . . it happened on Alcatraz. . . and now, it's happened in Hell. Peter Horton stars as the only man who can banish scores of damned souls roaming the earth in the gritty thriller BRIMSTONE.

Fifteen years ago, conscientious New York cop Ezekiel Stone (Horton-thirtysomething) avenged the rape of his wife by killing her attacker in cold blood. After his own death in the line of duty, Stone went to Hell for his transgression-until a mass jailbreak unleashed 113 of the most vile creatures ever to walk the planet, all possessing newfound supernatural powers. Now, the Devil promises the good-hearted Stone heavenly redemption in exchange for his bounty-hunting skills. And Stone sets out to fulfill his diabolical mission.

Though the Devil can't be beat, even he answers to a higher power. If Stone fails to round up the errant minions, there's Hell to pay in the underworld, and the price is eternal fire and BRIMSTONE.

BRIMSTONE (Show Description)

Ezekiel Stone has literally found Hell on Earth in the action thriller "Brimstone." Fifteen years ago, New York's most prominent detective, Zeke Stone (Peter Horton - "thirtysomething"), avenged his wife's rape by murdering her attacker in cold blood. After his own death in the line of duty, Stone is judged by the Devil (John Glover) himself and found to be no better than the criminals he hunted down on the streets of New York.

"Brimstone" is produced by Warner Bros. Television and airs Fridays (8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on the Fox Television Network. The series was created by Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris with Reiff, Voris and Felix Alcala serving as co-producers.

Stone is sent to Hell to suffer his penance--but there is unrest in the netherworld. A mass "jailbreak" has unleashed 113 of the most vile souls ever condemned to Hell into the unsuspecting land of the living. Now, the Devil promises Stone heavenly redemption in exchange for his bounty-hunting skills. For each soul that Stone captures, a corresponding Runic tattoo etched into his torso vanishes. If he fails to round up the errant demons, the price will be eternal fire and brimstone for Stone--and the world. If he is successful, it could mean his own redemption.
