[via press release from Sci Fi]

SCI FI CHANNEL ANNOUNCES SLATE OF CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS TO BE EXPLORED ON SCI FI INVESTIGATES

Experts Join "Boston Rob" Mariano on 'SCI FI Investigates' Team

PASADENA, Calif. -- July 13, 2006 -- SCI FI Investigates is a new SCI FI Channel series that explores the sweeping and eclectic mysteries and legends that pervade our world. Produced in a partnership with NBC News Productions, this six-part, one-hour weekly series is a real-life X-Files, aggressively exploring the unexplained. Investigations are led by an array of subject-specific authorities including, as was previously announced, Survivor and Amazing Race alumnus and resident cynic Rob Mariano.

Mariano's fellow SCI FI Investigates teammates include, forensic expert Deborah Dobrydney, scientist Dr. Bill Doleman and author/historian Richard Dolan. Mariano is the resident "jack of all trades," offering pragmatic, resourceful input on a variety of investigations.

Capitalizing on the experience and resources of NBC News Productions, the series and its team of investigators will seek out new evidence by using the latest forensic technology to reveal fresh perspectives on world-renowned mysteries. Today, Thomas Vitale, SCI FI Channel Senior Vice President of Programming and Original Movies, has announced the first group of topics the SCI FI Investigates team will be examining when the series premieres in the fall. They are:

Bigfoot � New sightings are making news and SCI FI Investigates does whatever it takes to secure legitimate evidence of the legendary creature's existence.

Mothman � A real-life nightmare that made headlines around the world, recent sightings of a terrifying winged apparition, known as the Mothman, takes SCI FI Investigates deep into the mountains of West Virginia.

Paranormal Hotspots � As hubs for such uncommon occurrences as UFO sightings, cattle mutilations and unexplained paranormal activity, Dulce, New Mexico and Sedona, Arizona are quite unique. SCI FI Investigates gets to the root of the disturbances that have put these cities on the paranormal map.

Roswell Revisited � 2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the alleged crash of an alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico. SCI FI Investigates revisits this controversial location as startling new evidence has recently surfaced.

The Afterlife � What happens at the moment of death? Evidence has suggested that the human consciousness can function independent of the body. Our team members explore altered states (sensory depravation, past life regression, etc.) in an effort to find the ultimate truth.

Voodoo � There is more to Voodoo than tales of dolls and pins. To learn the truth about this religion, the SCI FI Investigates team heads to New Orleans to experience its practices first hand.

NBC News Productions is an in-house production unit serving NBC News, NBC's Entertainment Division and all of the NBC-owned cable channels. Recent productions include Biography of the Year, a People Magazine People of the Year special and the seven-hour Greatest American with Matt Lauer special. News Productions has also done three documentaries for SCI FI Channel: a two-hour special Bermuda Triangle: Startling New Secrets with Lester Holt, Countdown to Doomsday with Matt Lauer, and Quest for Atlantis: Startling New Secrets, with Natalie Morales. In addition, the in-house production group oversees a DVD division that works closely with Universal to produce bonus material included in new DVD releases.
