It boasts a stellar cast and lavish production standards, including almost 100 shooting days, over 170 locations and more than 180 actors.

Indulging in powerful stimuli, including beautiful women and strong alcohol, he craves a reunion with his ex-girlfriend with whom he has a 12-year-old daughter. The show abounds in sex, erotic fantasies, the California lifestyle, show business and Scientology jokes.

The show is based on a best-selling non-fiction book by Evan Wright, a correspondent for The Rolling Stone magazine who witnessed the start of the American invasion first-hand. Generation Kill is a realistic dramatization of those days. Premiere episodes have been shown on the premium channel HBO since Nov. 25.
