SCI FI CHANNEL ANNOUNCES CASTING COUPS

Lucy Lawless Unboxed on 'Battlestar Galactica'

Sam J. Jones to Guest Star on 'Flash Gordon'

San Diego, CA � July 28, 2007 � SCI FI announced today the return of Lucy Lawless to Battlestar Galactica and the casting of Sam J. Jones as a guest star on the Channel's new series Flash Gordon. Jones played the title character in Mike Hodges' 1980 film, Flash Gordon.

Lucy Lawless will return to Battlestar Galactica for a minimum of two episodes of the show's fourth and final season, currently in production in Vancouver. Lawless will reprise her role as D'Anna, the religious zealot who broke away from the collective voice of her fellow Cylons, thus sowing the first seeds of dissention among the robot race. As a result of her divisive behavior, her entire model was deemed defective and was "boxed."

Introduced in a widely read comic strip by Alex Raymond and film serials starring the late Buster Crabbe, Flash Gordon gained a new legion of fans in the 1980s with a film starring Sam J. Jones. SCI FI Channel's Flash Gordon, a new original series premiering August 10 @ 9PM and featuring Eric Johnson (Smallville) in the title role, contemporizes the Flash legacy for a new generation of viewers. With a tip of the hat to the Flash legacy, Sam J. Jones will guest star in an upcoming episode of the SCI FI series entitled "Revelations." Jones will play 'Krebb,' a seedy prisoner who reveals surprising information about the fate of Flash's long lost father. This special episode of Flash Gordon is slated to premiere on SCI FI Channel in October.

SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on. SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com ) and magazine. Launched in 1992, and currently in 89 million homes, SCI FI Channel is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies.
