ELECTRIC ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW ACTION CRIME SERIES “ALMOST PARADISE”
DEBUTING ON MARCH 30, 2020
Los Angeles, CA March 24, 2020 – Electric Entertainment has announced its newest crime series, “Almost Paradise” starring Christian Kane and Samantha Richelle, to premiere on WGN AMERICA on Monday, March 30, 2020 at 10pm EST/9pm Central.
CHRISTIAN KANE (The Librarians, Leverage, Angel) stars in “Almost Paradise” as Alex Walker, a former US DEA agent who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner’s betrayal and a life- threatening battle with hypertension has sent him as far from the madness as he can go… a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop at the island’s luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the nearby US Air Force base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett. BUT, the island’s luxury resorts attract rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he’s pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police department or running into people from his old life. And the problem is: he likes it.
