Joesph Castanon and Mackenzie Hannigan in primetime series premiere!

The premiere of one of the most talked-about new shows airs tonight on CBS. The series opener for Jericho is a Fall television must-see event! Watch for IMTA alumni Joseph Castanon and Mackenzie Hannigan co-starring as part of the talented ensemble cast. Jericho is about a small town's reaction to nuclear war. As Marty Weiss of Martin Weiss Management (who manages both actors) says, "Bring the tissues and prepare to become hooked! Joseph who witnesses the nuclear blast from his rooftop and Mackenzie who brings series star Skeet Ulrich to his crashed school bus are sensational and heartbreaking in their individual roles."

Joseph competed at IMTA in 2004 where he met and signed with Martin Weiss Management and Abrams Artists Agency. Joseph has had numerous guest-starring roles and was submitted for emmy consideration for his work in Ghost Whisperer. Joseph played Adam Sandler's son in the hit film Click which came out this summer.

Mackenzie competed at IMTA in 2002 where he met and signed with Martin Weiss Management. He quickly landed the role of the Smart & Final spokeskid! He won a Young Artists Award for his performance! He has also guest-starred on many series! You'll hear Mackenzie as a voice talent in the animated feature film Happy Feet, which stars another IMTA alum, Elijah Wood!

Be sure and watch both of these amazing actors in Jericho on CBS tonight!
