EUREKA! SCI FI PICKS NEW ORIGINAL SERIES FOR �06

Stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Greg Germann, Joe Morton, Debrah Farentino and Jordan Hinson

NEW YORK -- September 26, 2005 -- SCI FI Channel has greenlit production on the new original series Eureka, ordering 13 hours of the drama including the previously produced two-hour pilot, it was announced today by Mark Stern, SCI FI Channel�s Executive Vice President of Original Programming. Eureka will star Colin Ferguson (Coupling, Armistead Maupin's More Tales of the City), Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Antwone Fisher), Greg Germann (Ally McBeal) Joe Morton (Paycheck), Debrah Farentino (The Division), Maury Chaykin (Being Julia), Matt Frewer (Maxx Headroom) and Jordan Hinson (Go Figure).

Nestled in the Pacific Northwest, Eureka is a seemingly ordinary town whose residents lead ordinary lives� at least to the naked eye. Shrouded in secrecy, the picturesque hamlet is actually a community of scientific geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they�ve unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen� and does. Production on the series written by executive producer Andrew Cosby (Haunted) and co-executive producer Jamie Paglia is slated to begin this January in Vancouver for a Summer 2006 premiere. Peter O�Fallon directed the pilot.

�Eureka is a smart, fun series which furthers our desire to create accessible and entertaining original programming on SCI FI,� says Mark Stern. �This series is set in present day, on Earth and involves characters and storylines that are relatable and intriguing with an imaginative sci-fi twist.�

While transporting a teenage runaway, Federal Marshall Jack Carter (Ferguson) wrecks his car in the town of Eureka. Stranded, Carter quickly discovers Eureka is not all it appears when a child vanishes in the catastrophic aftermath of an accident caused by a creation of one of the town�s eccentric residents. Instinctively, he inserts himself into the investigation working alongside the town�s sheriff (Maury Chaykin) and an agent from the Department of Defense (Richardson-Whitfield). As the case unfolds, Carter is let in on one of the country�s best-kept government secrets: Eureka is a haven created for the worlds greatest minds to live, work and create. But, unknown to most, mystery, conspiracy and long simmering secrets lurk just beneath the surface of this seemingly idyllic town.

Eureka is a SCI FI Channel presentation and is produced and distributed by NBC Universal Television Studio.
