Showtime's New Comedy, Dice, Coming in 2016; Back to the Future Day: October 21, 2015

Andrew Dice Clay - Showtime

Oscar(R) winner, Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) nominee Adrien Brody (The Pianist, Houdini), Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas, The Sopranos) and veteran actor Kevin Corrigan (Goodfellas, Grounded For Life) have joined the upcoming SHOWTIME comedy series Dice. Brody will guest star in one episode playing himself, while Bracco will guest star in two episodes as "Toni," a Vegas overlord who owns series star Andrew Dice Clay's gambling debts. As the casino boss where Dice works and plays, she forces him to perform whenever and wherever she wants. In a series regular role, Corrigan will star as "Milkshake," Dice's best friend and right-hand man. As previously announced, Natasha Leggero will also guest star. From Fox21 Television Studios, the half-hour, single-camera comedy began production this month for premiere in 2016 on SHOWTIME on-air, on demand and over the internet. Created by Scot Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover Part II), Dice chronicles the semi-true stories of Andrew Dice Clay, whose unique brand of humor often gets him in trouble. Once on top, the comedian now must work to resurrect his career, pay his gambling debts, manage his sons' rock band, fend off old fans and keep his family afloat. Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Bruce Rubenstein, Andrew Dice Clay and Scot Armstrong serve as executive producers.
