[via press release from NBC]

'DEAL OR NO DEAL' SHIFTS TO SUNDAYS (9-10 PM ET) FOLLOWED BY 'THE APPRENTICE: LOS ANGELES' (10-11 PM ET) BEGINNING MARCH 4, WHILE 'CROSSING JORDAN' MOVES INTO ITS NEW HOME ON WEDNESDAYS (9-10 PM ET), STARTING MARCH 7 ON NBC

'DEAL OR NO DEAL' SHIFTS TO SUNDAYS (9-10 PM ET) FOLLOWED BY 'THE APPRENTICE: LOS ANGELES' (10-11 PM ET) BEGINNING MARCH 4, WHILE 'CROSSING JORDAN' MOVES INTO ITS NEW HOME ON WEDNESDAYS (9-10 PM ET), STARTING MARCH 7 ON NBC

BURBANK - February 16, 2007 - NBC will adjust its late-winter primetime schedule by moving "Deal or No Deal" to Sundays (9-10 p.m. ET) followed by "The Apprentice: Los Angeles" (10-11 p.m. ET) beginning Sunday, March 4. "Crossing Jordan" (currently Sundays, 10-11 p.m. ET) shifts to Wednesdays (9-10 p.m. ET) beginning March 7. The moves create an expanded block of unscripted programming on NBC's Sunday schedule, which will now feature "Grease: You're the One That I Want," "Deal or No Deal" and "The Apprentice: Los Angeles," and a three-hour drama block on NBC's Wednesdays schedule, which will now feature "Friday Night Lights," "Crossing Jordan" and "Medium." The announcements were made by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

Hosted by Howie Mandel, "Deal or No Deal" is an exhilarating hit game show where contestants play and deal for a top prize of $1 million in a high-energy contest of nerves, instincts and raw intuition.

Each night, the game of odds and chance unfolds when a contestant is confronted with 26 sealed briefcases full of varying amounts of cash -- ranging from a measly penny to $1 million. Without knowing the amount in each briefcase, the contestant picks one -- his to keep, if he chooses -- until its unsealing at game's end.

The risk element kicks in when the player must then instinctively eliminate the remaining 25 cases, which are opened and the amount of cash inside revealed. The pressure mounts as in each round, after a pre-determined number of cases are opened, the participant is tempted by a mysterious entity known only as "the Banker" to accept an offer of cash in exchange for what might be contained in the contestant's chosen briefcase -- prompting Mandel to ask the all-important question - "Deal or No Deal?"

Based on the successful format from Endemol that has aired in over 35 countries, the series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The program is executive-produced by Scott St. John.

A cross-country move to Los Angeles adds a compelling element to NBC's "The Apprentice: Los Angeles" as 18 original contestants are winnowed down in the fiercest competition yet in the series' history. All of them vie for the coveted title of "The Apprentice: Los Angeles" and the career opportunity of a lifetime working for legendary business tycoon Donald Trump.

In an interesting social experiment of haves and have-nots, contestants this season have to earn the right to live like Trump. Each week, the contestants on the winning team have to live in a luxurious mansion. But contestants on the losing team have to sleep outside in tents in the back yard of the mansion with outdoor showers and port-a-potties, giving contestants more incentive than ever to win their tasks each week.

This season, the winning project manager each week remains project manager until they lose -- plus they will also sit in the boardroom and help advise Trump on who he should fire each week from their opposing team. Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. will return for several episodes, along with previous "Apprentice" winners, as boardroom advisors.

"The Apprentice: Los Angeles" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald J. Trump and Jay Bienstock are executive producers. Conrad Riggs, Page Feldman and James Canniffe are co-executive producers.

"Crossing Jordan," now in its sixth season, is from NBC's "Heroes" creator and executive producer Tim Kring. The series continues to explore the inner workings of a Boston city morgue while following the cadre of coroners who use their forensic skills to help police solve crimes and bring closure to the victims' families.

Jill Hennessy (NBC's "Law & Order") stars as Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh, a sexy, smart and fearless medical examiner with a checkered past. She works under the guidance of Dr. Garrett Macy (Miguel Ferrer, "Traffic"), the no-nonsense head of the morgue, and alongside Detective Woodrow "Woody" Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell, "Jerry Maguire"), who puts in the legwork to hunt down the perpetrators of crimes.

Additional support is provided by grief counselor Lily Lebowski (Kathryn Hahn, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"), forensic entomologist "Bug" (Ravi Kapoor, "Gideon's Crossing") and criminalist Nigel Townsend (Steve Valentine, "The Muse").

"Crossing Jordan" is from Tailwind Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Kring ("Heroes") is creator and executive producer; Dennis Hammer ("Heroes"), Allan Arkush ("Heroes"), Jon Cowan ("American reams"), Robert Rovner ("American Dreams") and Kathy McCormick (NBC's "Law & Order") are executive producers.
