What's Dean Been Up To?

Webmaster's Note:

As I state on the first page of this site:  "I do not know Dean McDermott on a personal basis".  On a personal note there's nothing that bothers me more than to take information about "anyone", whether it be an actor or a person in the general public, and place it where it can be viewed by the general public where it can then be transformed, stretched into and misconstrued into something that isn't so.  This would not be fair to Dean or anyone else.  I can only rely on valid and reliable sources of information regarding Dean and his career, etc.  Any news regarding Dean will not be posted unless it's from a valid and/or reliable source. Thank you for your understanding!

LOS ANGELES, CA: July 22, 2004: Chazz Palmenteri and Roselyn Sanchez
have joined the cast of the USA Network Original movie 'Kojak,' which stars Ving Rhames ('Pulp Fiction,' 'Mission Impossible') in the title role, it was announced today by Jeff Wachtel, USA's executive vice president, series and longform. Production began on July 21st in Toronto. The movie will premiere on USA Network in the first quarter 2005.

'Kojak' is the first in a possible series of movies based on the hit police drama, which originally starred Telly Savalas as the bald, street-wise police detective with a fondness for lollypops, Lieutenant Theo Kojak, and aired on CBS from 1973 to 1978. The show was celebrated by police departments around the country for what was then considered a realistic portrayal of police work.
 
In the film, Kojak hunts down a serial killer who continues to puzzle New York City detectives by targeting prostitutes with young children. After visiting a crime scene where he meets a victim's children left without their mother - let alone a legal guardian - he is overcome with anger and compassion, and vows to personally avenge the killings.

'Kojak' is executive produced by Rhames and Tom Thayer (A&E's 'The Great Gatsby'). Michael Watkins ('Five Days To Midnight,' 'Las Vegas' pilot) directs the script penned by Tony Piccirillo ('The 24th Day').
