AMANDA TAPPING DIVES INTO 'ATLANTIS'

'Stargate SG-1' Star Joins 'Atlantis' Cast for Fourth Season

Claudia Black to Guest Star on 'The Dresden Files'

New York, NY � February 20, 2007 � The Stargate legacy continues to burn bright on SCI FI. As the countdown to the final ten episodes of Stargate SG-1 commences, the Channel prepares for the launch of an all-new fourth season of Stargate Atlantis this fall. SG-1's Amanda Tapping will travel to the Pegasus galaxy to join the Atlantis cast and reprise her role as television's favorite astrophysicist, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter.

Taking the torch from SG-1 as television's most thrilling adventure series, Atlantis, slated to begin production in Vancouver next month, promises to up the ante this season by introducing a powerful new race, welcoming new cast members and mourning the loss of some beloved friends.

For ten seasons, Tapping starred on Stargate SG-1 as the intelligent and beautiful Samantha Carter. Her combination of Gate expertise, in-depth scientific knowledge and military training made her a critical member of SG-1. She will need to draw upon all these resources as she assumes her new role on Atlantis. Tapping will appear in 14 of the season's 20 episodes.

Atlantis fans can also look forward to the return of Jewel Staite (Firefly, Serenity). She will appear in eight episodes, reprising her role as Dr. Keller, a physician who joins the Atlantis expedition. Staite previously appeared on the series as Ellia, the Wraith child who was transformed into a human in the season 2 episode, "Instinct."

Season 4 of Stargate Atlantis will be executive produced by Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie. Mallozzi and Mullie will share the reins as the series' showrunners.

In other casting news, Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Farscape) has recently completed filming a guest-starring role on SCI FI's new original series The Dresden Files. In the episode, entitled "The Other Dick," Black plays Liz Fontaine, an Erin Brockovich-style private eye with a checkered past. Fontaine will give Harry Dresden (Paul Blackthorne) a run for his money, igniting sparks and tensions as they try to investigate the same murder case. The episode will air on Sunday, March 25 @ 9pm.

The final ten episodes of Stargate SG-1 and season 3 of Stargate Atlantis will return on Friday, April 13, leading into the series debut of Painkiller Jane.
