�MEDIUM� 3-D EPISODE ON NBC -- STARRING EMMY WINNER PATRICIA ARQUETTE -- TO BE INTRODUCED BY LEGENDARY �TWILIGHT ZONE� HOST ROD SERLING ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21

Nine Million Pairs of 3-D Glasses to be Distributed Throughout United States

BURBANK � November 17, 2005 � NBC's special 3-D episode of "Medium," starring Emmy winner Patricia Arquette, will be now introduced by the legendary late "Twilight Zone" host Rod Serling. The episode entitled, "Still Life," will be telecast Monday, Nov. 21 (10-11 p.m. ET).

Owing to the miracle of modern technology, the episode will be introduced by none other than Serling himself. The producers of "Medium" have acquired rights to Serling's footage from "The Twilight Zone" and have digitally manipulated the image with voice artist Mark Silverman -- the only voice artist recognized by the Serling estate -- providing the creative genius' voice.

In traditional black-and-white footage evocative of "The Twilight Zone," Serling will let the audience know what the cue is for them to put on their 3-D glasses (an enhanced image of Arquette's eyeball) and will explain that if they don't have glasses, their viewing experience of the episode will not be altered from the traditional 2-D image.

"The 'Medium' 3-D episode provides a great way for fans to enjoy a heightened perspective of Allison's intriguing visions," said Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

The various opening narrations of the original "The Twilight Zone" featured Serling's voice and always alluded to entering "...a new dimension."

"I first began exploring the possibility of doing a 3-D episode of television over a decade ago when I was working on 'Moonlighting,'" said "Medium" executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. "When 'Medium' became successful, I realized that in many ways it was an even better vehicle for 3-D.

"Additionally, technology seems to have finally caught up with me. (Directors) Jim Cameron, Robert Rodriguez and a host of other innovators have pushed the medium (you'll pardon the pun) into the 21st century, and our show and our viewers will be the beneficiaries of that. I think people will be surprised by how vivid and dynamic 3-D has become."

SENSIO 3D was brought on board to oversee all 3D-related aspects of the "Medium" episode, from storyboards to digital high definition shooting, state-of-the art visual effects and broadcast encoding in SENSIO'S proprietary S.A.F.E. 3-D format, which uses advanced color management algorithms to produce an exceptional improvement in quality.

"By converting an empirical craft into an exact and applicable science, we are the first and only company in the world to ensure the creation of high-quality, cost-effective 3-D content," said Pierre-Hugues Routhier, Vice President of Professional Services at SENSIO. "Working with the 'Medium' crew was an extraordinary experience and we are very proud of the final visual result that we have obtained together."

In the 3-D episode "Still Life," Allison (Arquette) comes to realize that there is an added dimension to the way she experiences art. When Allison encounters the work of one artist, disturbing, three-dimensional images emerge that lead her to believe that the man behind these alarming canvasses may have a deadly secret.

Viewers will be able to get the 3-D glasses in this week's TV Guide, which features "Medium" on its cover. In addition, millions of glasses will be distributed by Sprint street teams in major cities throughout the country and at Universal Theme Parks in Hollywood and Orlando. Viewers can go to http://www.nbc.com/nbc/Medium/3d/ to learn how to get 3-D glasses in their areas.

"Medium," which premiered last January, comes from award-winning executive producer, creator and director Glenn Gordon Caron ("Moonlighting"). The chilling drama is inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison DuBois. Emmy winner Arquette ("Stigmata," "Flirting with Disaster") stars as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people. Arquette was awarded the Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category after the telecast of the initial 16 episodes of the critically acclaimed series.

Jake Weber, Miguel Sandoval, David Cubitt, Sofia Vassilieva and Maria Lark also star.

Caron is creator and executive producer. Kelsey Grammer ("Girlfriends"), Steve Stark and Oscar winner Ronald L. Schwary ("Ordinary People") are executive producers. "Medium" is produced by Picturemaker Productions, Inc. in association with Grammnet Productions and Paramount Network Television.
