NBC'S '10.5: APOCALYPSE' TO PREMIERE MAY 21 AND 23 AT 9-11 PM ET/PT

Thrilling Disaster Movie Event Stars Kim Delaney, Beau Bridges, Dean Cain, David Cubitt, Oliver Hudson, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Carlos Bernard, Frank Langella, Carly Pope, Barbara Eve Harris, Melissa Sue Anderson and Tamara Hope

NEW YORK -� April 19, 2006 -� Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the West Coast, NBC returns with the sequel to its smash-hit disaster film "10.5" with the premiere of the thrill ride "10.5: Apocalypse" (Sunday, May 21 and Tuesday, May 23 at 9-11 p.m. ET/PT).

The two-part movie event features returning stars Emmy Award winner Kim Delaney ("NYPD Blue" and "CSI Miami"), Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges ("The Ballad of Jack and Rose") and David Cubitt ("Medium")-who reprise their roles as controversial scientist Dr. Samantha Hill, the President of the United States, and Hill's boyfriend and fellow scientist Dr. Jordan Fisher, respectively. They are joined by an impressive roster of new faces to include Dean Cain ("The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story"); Oliver Hudson ("The Mountain"); Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon ("NYPD Blue"); Carlos Bernard ("24"); Frank Langella ("Superman Returns"); Carly Pope ("Popular"); Barbara Eve Harris ("Ignition"); Melissa Sue Anderson ("Little House on the Prairie"); and Tamara Hope ("Shall We Dance").

In "10.5: Apocalypse," the deadly seismic activities that peaked with a 10.5 earthquake and devastated the West Coast in the first miniseries have altered the core structure of the earth and now threaten to jeopardize North America and the Western hemisphere, causing catastrophic events. Filmed exclusively in HD, "10.5: Apocalypse" achieves a whole new level of visual effects and style that has not previously been achieved on network television.

In a desperate bid to save lives � and the country � President Hollister (Bridges) calls once again upon one of the nation's top seismologists, controversial scientist Dr. Samantha Hill (Delaney) and her supervisor and former boyfriend Dr. Jordan Fisher (Cubitt), to interpret the latest onslaught of quakes. At a loss for how to interpret this continued seismic and now volcanic disruption, Hill re-discovers her seismologist father's (Langella, as Dr. Earl Hill) much-discredited hypothesis from years past that if correct, predicts even greater ruin and a complete altering of the North American Continent � a Continental Divide of the land mass.

Joining them in their valiant attempt to save lives is FEMA field commander Natalie Warner (Beauvais-Nilon), who is eager to once again prove herself in the field after a poor decision a year ago caused the death of some men under her command. Despite the concerns of her mother Stacy (Barbara Eve Harris, "Ignition"), who is the Acting Director of the organization, Natalie is sent to co-run the field operation. Also called into action is FEMA's untested network of volunteer rescue teams that include firefighters Brad Malloy (Cain), a cocky and charismatic bachelor hungry to join the action and his brother Will (Hudson), who is more level-headed and torn between his obligations to his country, brother and new wife, Laura (Pope). Offering assistance and aid on the front lines is Dr. Miguel Garcia (Bernard), a warm and intense field medic and Amy Hollister (Hope), a young and idealistic civilian Red Cross volunteer and daughter of the President. Rounding out the cast, Anderson plays the First Lady of the United States.

"10.5 Apocalypse" is produced by Pearl Pictures in association with Jaffe/Braunstein Films. Howard Braunstein, Michael Jaffe ("Elvis"), and Gary Pearl ("Liberty Stands Still") � whose childhood nightmare served as the basis of the original "10.5" � are executive producers. John Lafia ("Child's Play," "The Dead Zone") is writer, director and co-executive producer.
