The Mountain

Show Summary

Boundary Mountain is an escapist playground for wealthy tourists and extreme sports enthusiasts, but to the Carver family, it's home. The Mountain chronicles the larger-than-life saga of the Carvers, whose colorful patriarch, David Carver, Sr. (guest star Chad Everett) founded the town and its internationally famous ski resort after winning the land in a poker game. When this legendary man unexpectedly dies, his choice of an heir sends shockwaves throughout the community. Free-spirited David Carver, Jr. (Oliver Hudson, Dawson's Creek) left home years ago to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class motocross racer, while his older brother Will (Anson Mount, Line of Fire) diligently attended business school with every expectation of taking over the family empire. No one, least of all the brothers themselves, expected David to inherit the Mountain. Now, David finds himself saddled with a responsibility he never wanted and a brother who rightly feels betrayed. David just wants to run, until he realizes his grandfather may have had bigger things in mind. David begins to reconnect with his mother Gennie (Barbara Hershey, Beaches), a former ski champion who has a passion for organizing charity events, and teenage sister Shelly (newcomer Tara C. Thompson), a competitive snowboarder. He will uncover long-buried secrets about his co-workers and his town while trying to cover up his own past. He finds that Boundary is no longer what it used to be when he was a teenager. Maria Serrano (Alana De La Garza, All My Children), the love he left behind, has moved on and found comfort in David's older brother Will. Travis Kurri (Johann Urb, Zoolander) grew up as David Sr's faithful protege but his loyalties no longer lie with the Carvers but with ruthless business tycoon Colin Dowling (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files), a man who wants to take over the mountain and expand his empire there. The changes (and complications) keep coming with the arrivals of Colin's daughter Max (Elizabeth Bogush, Titans) and son Michael (Tommy Dewey, What I Like About You), two young adults who find that they're more interested in the spirited Carver kids, David and Shelly, than they are in their father's business ventures. Michael immediately clashes with town local Sam Tunney (Penn Badgley, Do Over), Shelly's friend and snowboarding buddy, whose growing feelings for his childhood friend and teammate are being trampled on by the young Dowling's own attraction to Shelly. From Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision. Executive producers are McG, Stephanie Savage (producers of The O.C.) and Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic). David Barrett (Fastlane) directed.
