"Feed the Beast" (TV show), formerly known as "Broke," is a drama series on AMC that is based on the Danish series "Bankerot" created by Kim Fupz Aakeson and produced by DR Broadcasting.

The series is about two best friends, Tommy Moran (David Schwimmer), and Dion Patras (Jim Sturgess), who take one last shot at their dream of opening a restaurant together. One is a brilliant chef in trouble with the Mob and the law, and the other is the best sommelier in the city who is the widowed father of a teenage son. It's a story of friendship, fatherhood, grief, larceny, arson, drugs, adultery, murder, love — and blazingly original cooking.

Tommy and Dion are like brothers. With all the love — and all the complications — that comes with it. Dion can't stay out of trouble. Tommy can't move past it. For two friends on the brink of losing everything, a dusty pipe dream of opening up an upscale restaurant in their hometown of the Bronx is all they have left to turn their lives around. They push each other to follow through on their dreams, welcome love into their lives, and overcome their demons. They also betray, backstab, manipulate and coerce each other into the most dangerous situations imaginable. For Tommy, a successful haute Hellenic restaurant is his means to give his son a life he never had. For Dion, this venture is a perfect opportunity to secretly repay his debt to the Mob. Together, they take on the insanity of the New York restaurant world, and navigate its underbelly of petty criminals, corrupt officials and violent mobsters. With the vig running, there's more than food, wine and fresh starts on the line. One wrong move and people get chopped.

The cast also includes Michael Gladis ("Mad Men," "House of Lies"), as Patrick Woichik, aka The Tooth Fairy, the soft spoken, brutally intimidating local mobster with a penchant for pulling teeth; Lorenza Izzo ("The Green Inferno," "Sex Ed"), as Pilar Herrera, a woman who meets Tommy in a grief group, and is desperately searching for true love; Christine Adams ("Batman Begins," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), as Tommy's late wife Rie Moran, John Doman ("The Wire," "The Affair"), as Tommy's father Aidan Moran, a shrewd and ruthless businessman and unapologetic racist; and Elijah Jacob ("Spot On") as Tommy's ten-year-old son, TJ Moran.

"Feed the Beast" is produced by AMC Studios and Lionsgate in association with Clyde Phillips Productions. The series is adapted by writer/showrunner Clyde Phillips ("Dexter," "Nurse Jackie"). Executive producers are Phillips, Henrik Ruben Genz ("Bankerot," "Borgen"), Malene Blenkov ("Bankerot") and Piv Bernth ("The Killing," "Forbrydelsen" and "Bron/Broen").
