Barry Van Dyke, Geraint Wyn Davies, Anthony Sherwood and Michele Scarabelli to star in 24 new episodes of "AIRWOLF". Hour-long action/adventure series now in production for USA Network.
Barry Van Dyke, Geraint Wyn Davies, Anthony Sherwood and Michele Scarabelli have been cast in the principal roles of "Airwolf", the action-adventure series that has begun production of all-new, exclusive episodes for USA Network airing later this season.
The series originated on CBS-TV and was broadcast with Jan-Michael Vincent, Ernest Borgnine and Alex Cord starring in the central roles. USA Network is currently airing these 55 episodes in their off-network premiere on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights at 10 pm. Satardays at 8 pm and Sundays at 7 p, ET & PT.
The 24 original episodes currently in production are the result of a ground-breaking agreement with "Airwolf" making the first hour-long action/adventure series to be produced for exclusive airing on basic cable television.
"USA is especially proud to introduce new episodes of this exciting series, which ran for three seasons on network television", David Kaniz, senior Vice President, Programming, said. "In addition to four new heroes, portrayed by talented young performers, we will be able to draw upon extensive inventory of ´Airwolf´ action footage that has never been on the air.
