[via press release from USA]



Billy Campbell ("Once and Again") Reprises His Role As One Of The 4400

Los Angeles, CA - March 1, 2005 - THE 4400, the critically acclaimed hit series from Paramount Network Television, begins production on its second season this week in Vancouver. Production on the series, which will air Sundays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on USA Network, resumes with the episode entitled "Wake-up Call." The series will premiere with a special two-hour episode on Sunday, June 5 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

Billy Campbell will reprise his role as Collier, one of the mysterious 4400. Other returning cast members include Joel Gretsch as Tom Baldwin, Jacqueline McKenzie as Diana Skouris, Patrick Flueger as Shawn Farrell, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali as Richard Tyler, Laura Allen as Lily Moore, Chad Faust as Kyle and Conchita Campbell as Maia.

The second season will continue exploring the travails of the 4400 people who were presumed dead or reported missing, before they suddenly reappeared on Earth. Though they had not aged physically, some of them reappeared on earth with severe alterations ranging from superhuman strength to an unexplained healing touch. The Department of Homeland Security formed an agency to track the 4400 after one of them was accused of committing a murder.

THE 4400 premiered on July 11, 2004 on USA Network as the highest-rated and most-watched original series premiere ever on a basic cable network. The series was 2004's top original scripted basic cable series, beating all other original programs in viewers, households, and key demos.

In the first episode of the show's second season, the action resumes six months after the series first season ended, and over a year after the 4400 were deposited back on earth. Tom is reinstated at the Department of Homeland Security, reuniting with his partner, Diana, as they continue their investigation into the 4400. Meanwhile, Lily's baby, who was mysteriously conceived during her absence, is now six months old; and Collier's book is published, containing explosive information about the 4400.

THE 4400 was created by Scott Peters and Rene Echevarria. Scott Peters, Maira Suro, Ira Behr and Perry Simon are executive producers.

THE 4400 is produced by Paramount Network Television in association with Renegade 83 and American Zoetrope for USA Network. Paramount Network Television is a division of the CBS Paramount Network Television Entertainment Group, a unit of Viacom Inc.
