SAVE A HEROES FAN'S HOLIDAY! HEROES NOVEL TO HIT BOOKSTORE SHELVES DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

SAVE A HEROES FAN'S HOLIDAY! HEROES NOVEL TO HIT BOOKSTORE SHELVES DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

NEW YORK, NY - December 11, 2007 - For fans of NBC's Emmy� and Golden Globe� nominated Heroes, one of the busiest shopping days of the year will also be one of the most exciting. On December 26, HEROES: SAVING CHARLIE (Del Rey Hardcover; $23.95; on sale December 26, 2007) by Aury Wallington will hit bookstore shelves around North America. This original novel is based on the characters Hiro Nakamura (Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated Masi Oka) and Charlie (Jayma Mays), created by executive producer/creator Tim Kring. It is developed through a licensing agreement with NBC Universal Video, Music & Product Development.

"One of the more memorable relationships in Season One was Hiro's first love, the waitress Charlie. We were as smitten as Hiro by that story and seized the chance to tell the full adventure of Hiro's six months in the past. Aury Wallington was hand picked by the writers of the show for her brilliant voice for these characters. The novel is a welcome addition to the Heroes family," said Tim Kring, creator-executive producer, "Heroes."

The novel-written with the full cooperation and consultation of the show's creators-tells the story of Japanese office worker Hiro, who, through the use of his ability to pierce the space-time continuum and manipulate time, bravely catapults himself into the past to save Charlie, a small-town Texas waitress with an extraordinary memory, from being brutally murdered by super-powered serial killer Sylar (Zachary Quinto). While fans of the television series were given only a brief glimpse into Hiro and Charlie's relationship as it grew into love over six time-changing months, but their history is told here with the depth and insight that only a novel will allow.

"Heroes" is this season's #1 Monday series and the #6 program overall in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49, and is the #3 show among adults 18-34. "Heroes" is building on its adult 18-49 lead-in by 76 percent (with a 6.0 rating versus a lead-in of 3.4). For the season, "Heroes" is averaging a 6.0 rating, 13 share among adults 18-49, which represents 7.9 million viewers in that category, and 12.8 million viewers overall.
