When the Sun Reaches Its Limit a Rare Celestial Phenomenon Becomes a Terrifying Reality -- Luke Perry, Peter Fonda and Tia Carrere Star in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie Event 'Supernova'

[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]


Emma Samms and Lance Henriksen Also Star Alongside Global Locations and Explosive Special Effects

A scientific possibility becomes a terrifying reality when the most powerful force in the universe threatens to hurtle home. Golden Globe winner Peter Fonda, Luke Perry, Tia Carrere, Lance Henriksen and Emma Samms star in �Supernova,� a Hallmark Channel Original three-and-a-half-hour movie event, which will premiere Monday, September 5 (8/7c).

Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Austin Shepard (Fonda) suddenly disappears from his observatory at the Space Propulsion Labs leaving shocking data behind for Dr. Christopher Richardson (Perry). Seasoned news reporter Laurie Stephenson (Samms), who has been looking for answers to bizarre sun storm activities, gets suspicious when a scheduled interview with Dr. Shepard is cancelled. National Intelligence Special Agent Lisa Delgado (Carrere) fears that Shepard has been selling his classified top-secret Solar Probe discoveries and has gone into hiding.

The truth is that Shepard has retreated to an island paradise because he knows something that everyone else will soon discover for themselves -- after eons of existence as a rolling inferno, the sun is set to explode in a supernova that will bring about the end of the world in seven short, terrifying days!

�Supernova� was directed by John Harrison (�Dune�) and was filmed in 27 difficult and amazing locations (the Taj Mahal, the St. Louis Archway and Paris, to name a few) with explosive state-of-the-art special effects.

�Supernova� is executive produced by Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson. Nick Lombardo, Steve Squillante and Therese Ryan are co-executive producers. The Hallmark Channel Original movie event was produced by Leanne Moore.
