[via press release from Sci Fi]

SCI FI CHANNEL MINISERIES "THE TRIANGLE" STARTS PRODUCTION IN SOUTH AFRICA

Stars Eric Stoltz, Catherine Bell, Michael Rodgers, Bruce Davison and Sam Neill

Executive Produced by Dean Devlin and Bryan Singer

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA & NEW YORK -- June 1, 2005 -- SCI FI Channel will start production on the 6-hour miniseries 'The Triangle' this week, in Cape Town, South Africa. Starring Eric Stoltz ('Pulp Fiction,' 'Mask'), Catherine Bell ('JAG,' 'Bruce Almighty'), Michael Rodgers ('Auto Focus'), Bruce Davison ('X-Men') and Sam Neill ('Jurassic Park'), 'The Triangle' is helmed by Craig Baxley ('Kingdom Hospital'). Hollywood's sci-fi standouts Dean Devlin ('Independence Day') and Bryan Singer ('X-Men') will executive produce. Based on an original story by Devlin and Singer, the miniseries is written by Rockne O'Bannon ('Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars') and will premiere on SCI FI in December 2005.

Set against the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle, this 3-night, SCI FI Channel Original Miniseries event will focus on a disparate group of professionals, brought together to investigate the dangerous truths behind one of the greatest legends of our time. In 'The Triangle,' billionaire Rice Benirall (Neill) is losing his cargo ships, and their crews, at a frightening pace-and now, he wants answers. His bemused, handpicked team of subject-specific experts include lead skeptic and tabloid journalist Howard Thomas (Stoltz), ocean resource engineer Emily Patterson (Bell), scientist/adventurer Bruce Gellar (Rodgers) and psychic Stan Latham (Davison). Pulled together with the promise of unlimited funding for their research and the chance for once-in-a-lifetime riches, the team sets out to solve this most daunting of puzzles.

When a jetliner disappears over the Triangle, bizarre, unexplainable occurrences begin to affect each member of Benirall's team. When the government takes an alarming interest in their work, our crew is drawn into something far more dangerous than they had believed possible. A research expedition with the promise of riches soon becomes a frantic, head-turning ride through the unstoppable force that is 'The Triangle.'

A SCI FI Channel presentation, 'The Triangle' is produced by Dean Devlin's Electric Entertainment. 'The Triangle' marks Singer and Devlin's first-ever collaboration.

SCI FI Channel, currently enjoying its highest ratings ever, has almost single-handedly revived the miniseries as a successful format for television. Recent highlights of SCI FI's big event miniseries strategy include ratings champs like the Emmy Award-winning 'Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN,' the critically-acclaimed 'Battlestar Galactica,' which is now the Channel's most successful series ever and celebrated literary adaptations of 'Children of Dune' and 'Legend of Earthsea' ? all of which have met with unprecedented success for the Channel.

SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com) and magazine.
