MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts announces its partnership with Sony Pictures Television Networks' new original series "The Firm," which airs on NBC in the United States and more than 62 countries abroad through AXN network. Hilton serves as the official hotel partner for the television drama that includes scenes showcasing Washington Hilton and Capital Hilton, signature properties in the Washington, D.C. area from the global hotel brand. Viewers in select territories can continue the excitement off-screen with an exclusive online contest offering a grand-prize vacation to any one of the more than 550 Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties worldwide.

Viewers in Latin America, Brazil, Southeast Asia, Spain, Poland and Hungary can visit www.axn.com to enter for a chance to win a dream vacation for two from Hilton Hotels & Resorts. Timing will coincide with the airing of the sixth episode of "The Firm" in each territory, when the Hilton properties appear.

"Hilton has a long history of working with the entertainment industry to tell the story of global travel through films, television shows, world events and other dynamic partnerships," said Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "With more than 103 million households able to watch 'The Firm' on AXN in key regions for our brand, we're delighted to partner with Sony Pictures Television Networks and showcase two fantastic properties located in Washington, D.C."

In "The Firm," lead character Mitch McDeere is confronted with a difficult choice and those who participate in the contest will be asked the same question he asked himself: "Would you choose to stay or leave the witness protection program and why?" Viewers who answer that question will be entered to win a grand prize for a vacation to any Hilton Hotels & Resorts property of their choice.

The prize includes:

Additionally, viewers will have the chance to win a three-night stay at any Hilton Hotels & Resorts destination worldwide. Three people will be awarded in each participating AXN territory. Terms and conditions for the contest apply.

Based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham, "The Firm" continues the story of attorney McDeere who brought down a prestigious Memphis law firm operating as a front for the Chicago mob. After a difficult decade, McDeere and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future - only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere. Viewers will see Washington Hilton and Capital Hilton in a series of scenes, including those that highlight the North Gate Grill at Capital Hilton and the Presidential Suite at Washington Hilton. "The Firm" is an AXN original, produced by Entertainment One (eOne) in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks.
