ELVIS, THE KING OF ROCK �N� ROLL, COMING IN MAY

�ELVIS BY THE PRESLEYS,� A NEW ENTERTAINMENT SPECIAL FEATURING A COLLECTION OF NEW INTIMATE INTERVIEWS WITH PRISCILLA BEAULIEU PRESLEY AND LISA MARIE PRESLEY, TO BE BROADCAST MAY 13 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

CBS, SONY BMG, CROWN PUBLISHERS AND THE ELVIS PRESLEY ESTATE UNITE IN A MULTI-TIERED EFFORT TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF ELVIS PRESLEY

�ELVIS,� The Previously Announced Four-Hour Mini-Series, To Be Broadcast May 8 and May 11

ELVIS BY THE PRESLEYS, a new entertainment special that will feature a collection of new, intimate interviews with his former wife, Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, and their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, will be broadcast Friday, May 13 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Exclusive never-before-seen television performances, photographs from the Presley Estate archives and Presley family home movies will be broadcast for the first time.

CBS, SONY BMG, Crown Publishers and the Elvis Presley Estate unite in a multi-tiered effort to celebrate the life and legacy of Elvis Presley with the television special, a mini-series, a commemorative two CD set and a lavish book all coming in the month of May.

In the special, Priscilla and Lisa Marie speak with unguarded candor about their lives with the legendary Elvis Presley and offer an intimate look at their family and private life. Rare interviews with Elvis� first cousin, Patsy Presley Geranen, and Priscilla�s parents, Ann and Paul Beaulieu, are also featured.

Vintage, never-before-seen performance footage will be interwoven with photographs from the Presley Estate archives and press coverage of Elvis over the years. Private home movies of the Presley family illustrate and illuminate his story with vivid detail, honest insight and great warmth. Different aspects of Elvis� life, including his tours, his time in Hollywood and his home life, are depicted with the insight that only his family can bring. His career ups and downs, his kindness and generosity and his human frailties are all brought to light as well as a reflection on his place in entertainment history and his enduring legacy.

Timed to the special, SONY BMG Strategic Marketing Group will release a two CD soundtrack collection in May. The soundtrack will include tracks from the special, Elvis� favorites and family picks by Priscilla and Lisa Marie as well as rare, previously unreleased cuts and outtakes.

Crown Publishers, a division of Random House, Inc., will publish a book, also titled Elvis by the Presleys. Along with interviews with Priscilla and Lisa Marie, taken from the CBS special, the book will include a lavish collection of personal photos, memorabilia, handwritten notes, selections from scrapbooks and previously unseen shots of Graceland from the Elvis archives. It will be in stores on May 3.

Also on CBS in May is ELVIS, the previously announced new four-hour mini-series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the title role which will be broadcast Sunday, May 8 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesday, May 11 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). The fact-based drama, about the life of Elvis Presley, is being produced with the full cooperation and participation of the Elvis Presley Estate. His electrifying yet tumultuous story -- from his humble beginnings to his meteoric rise to fame -- will be told and Presley's master recordings will be heard in a biographical film for the first time.

ELVIS BY THE PRESLEYS is being produced by Red-Eye Flight Productions. David Saltz (�Elvis Lives�), Osmond Kilkenny (�Elvis Lives�) and Susan Zirinsky (�48 Hours�) are the executive producers. Scott Lochmus (�Venus & Vegas�) is the producer; Elisabeth Harris (�Elvis Lives�) is the coordinating producer. Rob Klug (�9/11�) is the director.
