In an extensive on-air and online programming and promotional agreement, America Online and Turner Network Television (TNT) are teaming up to bring online consumers an array of video programming, not available anywhere else, surrounding TNT�s six-week television event INTO THE WEST, from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. This collaboration kicks off today with the world premiere of the "World on Fire" music video by Sarah McLachlan and Robbie Robertson on AOL Music�s First View at www.aolmusic.com. For this never-before-seen video, directed by Paul Fedor and featuring clips from INTO THE WEST, multi-platinum and Grammy-winning recording artist Sarah McLachlan re-recorded her chart-topping single as a duet with legendary songwriter Robbie Robertson. The premiere will be showcased as part of AOL Music�s popular First View franchise that debuts new music videos before they are seen anywhere else. INTO THE WEST will premiere Friday, June 10, exclusively on TNT.

In addition, as a sponsor of INTO THE WEST, AOL will receive numerous on-air mentions, pointing viewers to AOL to discover this online programming.

David A. Rosemont, executive producer of TNT�s Purgatory and Emmy-winning Door to Door, serves as producer for the project, and Kirk Ellis (Anne Frank) is the supervising producer.
