    TNT's Action-Packed Hit Leverage Returns Sunday, July 15, With New Headquarters and the Most Thrilling Twists and Turns Yet
    Television's most adventurous gang of thieves, grifters and con artists shake things up this summer with new headquarters and some of their toughest cases yet. TNT's hit series Leverage returns for its fifth season, which is set to launch Sunday, July 15, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). The show will move to its regular Sunday 9 p.m. (ET/PT) timeslot beginning August 26. Academy Award* winner Timothy Hutton stars in this clever and compelling drama, along with Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge.
    Leverage focuses on a team led by former insurance investigator turned thief, Nate Ford (Hutton). His cohorts include Sophie Devereaux (Bellman), a brilliant grifter; Eliot Spencer (Kane), a retrieval specialist; Alec Hardison (Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard; and Parker (Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings. Together, they try to level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful.
    The fifth season of Leverage opens to the promise of new adventure and uncharted territory in "The Very Big Bird Job". Without even having time to settle into their new Portland, Ore., base of operations, the team is immediately swept into the path of a conniving shipping executive (guest star Carey Elwes) whose cheap techniques result in a tragic plane crash. Determined to put him behind bars before another merger is completed, the Leverage team formulates their most daring con ever involving theft of the actual Spruce Goose.
    This season on Leverage, the team will be forced to face changing personal dynamics as the relationship between Parker and Hardison heats up, and Nate continues to struggle with inner demons. Among their upcoming jobs, they will target a wealthy scientist who stole his former research partner's discovery and ruined his reputation; an ex-hockey-player-turned-team-owner (guest star Treat Williams) who trades his love of the game for his love of money at the expense of his players' health; a corrupt restaurateur who destroys lives in his pursuit of fame and money; and a corrupt businessman whose stock scams and money-laundering have him living a life of secrecy (guest star Matthew Lillard). In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned-InterPOL-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard).
    Since premiering in 2008, Leverage has become a solid hit, averaging 4 million viewers in its fourth season. Leverage is executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT's The Librarian movie series) and creators John Rogers (Transformers) and Chris Downey (The King of Queens). The series is produced for TNT by Devlin's Electric Entertainment.

    NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ION Television continues to expand its programming line-up with high-quality content with the acquisition of the popular TNT drama series, "Leverage" from Electric Entertainment. The announcement was made today by Brandon Burgess, CEO, ION Media Networks. ION Television, a top-10 rated network, has licensed the off-network rights to all seasons of "Leverage." The series will begin airing on ION Television in summer 2012.
    "We're pleased to team up with Dean Devlin's Electric Entertainment, which has distinguished itself by providing high caliber theatrical production standards for TV audiences," says Burgess. "Collaborating with both Electric and Turner to support the longevity of a popular original drama, such as 'Leverage,' furthers our strategic goal to be a viable partner for cable network productions."
    "We are thrilled to join forces with ION Television, one of the largest broadcast television station groups in the country. ION's reach of over 99 million homes in the U.S. will ensure the continuation of the show's legacy," says Electric Entertainment Founder Dean Devlin. "We're looking forward to working with such a pioneering and innovative company."
    "Leverage" follows a five-person team: a thief, a grifter, a hacker, a retrieval specialist, and their leader, former insurance investigator Nathan Ford (Academy Award Winner(R) Timothy Hutton), who use their skills to right corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on ordinary citizens. "Leverage," recently picked-up for its fifth season, is executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT's The Librarian movie series) and creators John Rogers (Transformers) and Chris Downey (The King of Queens).
