Take a first look at Spike TV’s new half-hour original comedy series, BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE, which premieres on Tuesday, January 12 at 10pm with back-to-back episodes.

This is definitely something that I want to check out, it could be a lot of fun. Plus I could always use a new half-hour show in my schedule.

Show Description: In the vein of “Animal House,” “Blue Mountain State” follows three incoming freshman in a big-time, Midwestern college football program. Alex is a talented quarterback, content to ride the bench while partying with his best friend Sammy, who aspires to be the school’s mascot. Craig, on the other hand, is a number one recruit and future Pro whose life is already mapped out for him by his controlling girlfriend. Will they be able to juggle football, girls, class and nonstop hazing?
Former NFL running back and veteran actor, Ed Marinaro (“Hill Street Blues”), stars as the coach. Alex, played by Emmy Award®-winner Darin Brooks (“Blue Crush”) is a talented quarterback, content to be second-string and ride the bench while partying with his best friend Sammy, played by Romanski (“The Sarah Silverman Program”), who aspires to be the school’s beloved mascot. Craig, played by Sam Jones III (“Smallville”), on the other hand, is the school’s top recruit and future NFL-pro whose life is already being mapped out for him by his controlling girlfriend, Denise, played by Gabrielle Dennis (“The Game”). The cast also includes Thad, played by Alan Ritchson (“Smallville”), the team’s over-the-top captain who takes his role as team leader to mean hazing the incoming freshman.
