[via press release from ABC]

ABC LAUNCHES THE FIRST OFFICIAL �COMMANDER IN CHIEF� PODCAST SERIES ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 10

Podcasts Will Be Available on ABC.com and Apple�s iTunes

The ABC Television Network will launch the first official �Commander In Chief� podcast series on TUESDAY, JANUARY 10. The podcast will be available on ABC.com and Apple�s iTunes.

Each week, various �Commander In Chief� cast members, producers and writers will give their insights into upcoming episodes and participate in fun segments.

On Monday, January 9, the first podcast will feature an interview with Geena Davis about �Sub Enchanted Evening,� the first of a special two-part episode airing Tuesday, January10; and Jasmine Anthony, who plays her 7-year-old daughter Amy on the show, will try to �stump� Geena with some difficult questions meant to test her Mensa IQ.

The following week, consulting producers/writers Stuart Stevens and Steven Cohen discuss the episode �No Nukes Is Good Nukes,� the conclusion of the two-parter airing on Tuesday, January 17, and also talk about their very different political views, as Stevens is a Republican and worked for George W. Bush, and Cohen is a Democrat and worked for Clinton.

The �Commander In Chief� podcasts will be available for download on the official �Commander In Chief� website at www.mackenziewatch.com, and on Apple�s iTunes. Users will be able to download the podcasts on both sites at no cost. Podcasts will remain available on each site for an unspecified time.

A podcast is the distribution of audio files for download. You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.

On the special two-part episode titled �Sub Enchanted Evening� airing on Tuesday, January 10, Mac must deal with a crisis of international proportions � with potentially devastating consequences � when a U.S. submarine in a covert operation off the coast of North Korea runs into trouble. Meanwhile, Mac contemplates whether to run for election in the next presidential race, with Dickie McDonald (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) advising what her campaign strategy should be, and her family, minus Rebecca, supportive of the decision. And Jayne Murray (Natasha Henstridge), in her new role of lobbyist, finds herself questioning what her future holds.

Delivering the most-watched Tuesday drama debut on any network in the last five years, �Commander In Chief� recently garnered a Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Series, Drama, and a People's Choice Award nomination for Favorite New TV Drama. In addition, Geena Davis was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance By An Actress in a Television Series, Drama, and Donald Sutherland for Best Performance By An Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Geena Davis was also nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.

�Commander In Chief� airs Tuesdays from 9:00�10:01 p.m., ET, on the ABC Television Network.

�Commander In Chief� stars Geena Davis as Mackenzie Allen, Donald Sutherland as Nathan Templeton, Harry Lennix as Jim Gardner, Kyle Secor as Rod Calloway, Ever Carradine as Kelly Ludlow, Caitlin Wachs as Rebecca Calloway, Matt Lanter as Horace Calloway, Jasmine Anthony as Amy Calloway, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Richard �Dickie� McDonald.

�Commander In Chief� was created by Rod Lurie. Steven Bochco, Dee Johnson, Rod Lurie and Marc Frydman serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Touchstone Television in association with Steven Bochco Productions.
