SCOTT FOLEY AND RICHARD BURGI STAR IN THE A&E ORIGINAL MOVIE "FIRESTORM: LAST STAND AT YELLOWSTONE"

WORLD PREMIERE ON LABOR DAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2006 AT 9PM/8C

PASADENA, CA, JULY 13, 2006 - Scott Foley ("The Unit," "Felicity") and Richard Burgi ("Desperate Housewives," In Her Shoes) star as the leaders of a team of firefighters battling the worst wildfires in the history of Yellowstone National Park, in the life-or-death A&E Network Original Movie, FIRESTORM: LAST STAND AT YELLOWSTONE, premiering Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 2006 at 9PM/8C.

Clay Harding (Scott Foley) has spent his life studying fires -- how they move, breathe, grow, and how to put them out. When Clay is brought in to oversee fire strategy at Yellowstone National Park, his "dream job" turns into a nightmare as it becomes apparent that this could be the worst fire season in history. Clay partners with his top flight fire team headed up by Richard Danville (Richard Burgi) to try and prevent disaster before it strikes, but is shut down at everyone turn. Nonetheless, he works tirelessly with his team to keep the summer fires from growing out of control.

However, just as thousands have entered the park for the 4th of July weekend, Clay's worst fears are realized. A massive fire grows out of control and threatens everything in its path. The deadly fire rages through the park, cutting off campsites and tourists areas, risking thousands of lives. In a last ditch effort, Clay and his team come up with a radical plan to save everyone and what's left of the park and the nearby town. Racing against time, they are momentarily able to shift the direction of the fire and evacuate everyone from the park, but will it be in time to save thousands of lives?

Delia Fine serves as the executive producer for the A&E Network and David Craig is the supervising producer for the A&E Network. FIRESTORM: LAST STAND AT YELLOWSTONE is produced by Cypress Point Productions in association with Jaffe Braunstein Films for A&E Network. The executive producers are Michael R. Goldstein and Gerald W. Abrams ("See Arnold Run," 44 Minutes, Natalie Wood). It is directed by John Lafia ("10.5," Stephen King's, "The Dead Zone") and written by Mark Wheaton and John Fasano ("Saving Jessica Lynch," "The Hunley," Another 48 Hours, F/X).
