ABC FAMILY PREMIERES THE ORIGINAL MOVIE �ALCHEMY� FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7

Stars Tom Cavanagh, Sarah Chalke, James Barbour, Michael Ian Black, Illeana Douglas and Nadia Dajani

Burbank, CA (September 12, 2005) � ABC Family premieres the original movie ALCHEMY, Friday, October 7 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). Tom Cavanagh (�Ed,� �Love Monkey�), Sarah Chalke (�Scrubs,� � Roseanne�) and James Barbour (�Eight Crazy Nights�) star in this modern day Cyrano De Bergerac story with a high tech twist. Film also stars Illeana Douglas (�To Die For�), Michael Ian Black (�Stella�) and Nadia Dajani (�Emily�s Reason�s Why Not�).

In Alchemy, Mal Downey (Tom Cavanagh) a well known professor, creates a human-like interactive computer, Jerry (voiced by Michael Ian Black), which can emulate human emotions and respond just as a person would. In order to keep his research funded, Mal must his work published and decides to enlist the help of his friend Jane (Nadia Dajani) to document in a popular woman's magazine whether a woman could fall in love faster with a computer or a real man. Jane knows the right man for the job and lures Dr. Troy Rollins (James Barbour), aka Professor Love, to be part of the experiment. Soon the test subject Samantha (Sarah Chalke), a free spirited commitment-phobe, begins to fall under the spell of Professor Love, prompting Mal to disguise himself as a Frenchman to take on a human form for Jerry. But when Mal begins to fall in love with Samantha, all bets are off. Will Mal be able to make Samantha fall in love with Jerry before she succumbs to the advances of Professor Love?

Alchemy is written and directed by Evan Oppenheimer (�Justice,� �The Auteur Theory�). The movie is executive produced by Kenneth Schapiro (�My Girlfriend�s Boyfriend�) and Daniel O� Meara (�Bring Rain,� �Jailbait�).
