Elizabeth Bogush plays the tough girl in ''The Mountain''

Best recognized for her role as "Jenny Williams" on the Aaron Spelling drama Titans, Elizabeth Bogush stars as Max, daughter of the rival Dowling family, in The Mountain.

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, Mulholland Drive, Medical Center), 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, Tully, Crossroads), 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 Boundary Mountain. David finds himself saddled with a responsibility he never wanted and a brother who rightly feels betrayed. On top of this, he is torn between two women and suddenly immersed in a power struggle with a neighboring family. David just wants to run, until he realizes his grandfather may have had bigger things in mind.

Part of the complicated history that both connects and separates the brothers Carver is Maria Serrano (Alana De La Garza, All My Children). Once David's partner in teenage rebellion and now Will's girlfriend, she is the half Irish/half Mexican daughter of one of Boundary's first employees. As Boundary's director of special events, Maria spends her days with both the hard-working locals and the wealthy jet setters who flock to the resort.

Through the episodes to come, David will begin to reconnect with his mother Gennie (Barbara Hershey, Hannah and Her Sisters, Beaches) and teenage sister Shelly (newcomer Tara Thompson). With the death of her all-powerful father, Gennie may finally allow herself to emerge from 15 years of self-imposed emotional exile. The secrets Gennie carries about her father, her husband, even her own children, will eventually come back to haunt them all. Just like her older brothers, Shelly lives to compete. A champion snowboarder, she appears destined to become the world champion athlete her mother was. A sweet and natural flirt, Shelly is oblivious to the fact that her best friend Sam Tunney (Penn Badgley, Do Over) carries a torch for her.

As they work on their new personal and professional relationship, David and Will also have to deal with the ambitious Colin Dowling (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files), who has built a real estate empire to rival Donald Trump's. The jewel that has always eluded Colin is Boundary Mountain. Now that the Carver patriarch is gone, Colin feels his opportunity has come, and he will use everything and everyone he can, including his own children, to swallow The Mountain whole.

Colin's daughter Max (Elizabeth Bogush, Titans) is a graduate of Harvard Business School, bright and merciless on the surface, with a deep need to win her father's approval. When Max's parents divorced, her mother got custody, and Max was torn away from her father and brother. Of the two Dowling kids, Max thinks of herself as "the tough one," ready to take whatever life or her father can dish out. However, it is her brother Michael (newcomer Tommy Dewey) who is being groomed by his dad to take over the Dowling empire. Michael is being trained as a corporate shark, and so far, he hasn't been very good at it. Growing up under his father's watchful eye has not been easy, and Michael envies Max as much as she envies him.

Finally, the Carvers have to contend with one of Boundary's shadiest characters, Travis Kurri (Johann Urb, Zoolander). Rumor has it that David Carver, Sr. had a torrid affair with Travis' mother, and shortly after her death, Carver Sr. brought the teenaged Travis back to Boundary. Though Travis is adept at the business side of things, he is sorely lacking when it comes to ethics, morality and character.

David Carver's return to Boundary Mountain uncovers long-buried secrets about his town, his co-workers and even his own family mythology.

A production of Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. Executive producers are McG (The O.C and the Charlie's Angels blockbusters) Stephanie Savage (The O.C.) and Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic). David Barrett (Fast Lane) directed. Boundary Mountain exteriors were filmed at the Lake Louise Ski Hill in Alberta, Canada.
