Noah Wyle, Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin Return for Third Installment of TNT's Successful Librarian Franchise

Jonathan Frakes Back as Director as Bruce Davison and Stana Katic Join Cast

THE LIBRARIAN: THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE Set to Premiere on TNT in Winter 2008

Noah Wyle (ER) is set to return as the brilliant adventure-seeking Flynn Carsen in Electric Entertainment's third installment of TNT's hugely successful Librarian franchise with THE LIBRARIAN: THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE. Bob Newhart (Elf, The Bob Newhart Show) and Jane Curtin (Our Town, 3rd Rock from the Sun) will also reprise their roles, with Bruce Davison (X-Men, Knight Rider) and Stana Katic (Feast of Love) joining the cast.

Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), who directed the second Librarian installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines, will once again take the helm. Electric Entertainment's Dean Devlin, Kearie Peak and Marc Roskin are executive-producing. Wyle and Electric's Phil Goldfarb are producing, with the company's Rachel Olschan co-producing. The project began shooting in New Orleans this week.

THE LIBRARIAN: THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE opens with a restless Flynn attempting to assimilate back into his career as the Librarian at the New York Metropolitan Library after many adventures abroad. Led to New Orleans by strange dreams, he finds himself in the midst of uncovering a conspiracy that involves the notorious vampire, Prince Vlad Dracul. Once again, Flynn must overcome his fears and protect one of the world's most sacred artifacts, The Judas Chalice, or face the consequences of it falling into the wrong hands.

Newhart returns as Judson, who once having been the Librarian, now serves as head of the library. He is always concerned about the fate of the world, and as a former Marine is pretty handy to have around in a fight against good and evil.

Curtin comes back as Charlene, the extremely serious-minded, no-nonsense personnel director for the Library. She is beyond strict and is a huge stickler for receipts.

Katic plays Simone Renoir, a gorgeous young New Orleans jazz club singer who uses her hypnotic performances to charm an off-guard Flynn. She has made it her mission to protect a pendant that could unlock the secret to the whereabouts of the famous Judas Chalice. Turned into a vampire by the infamous Vlad Dracula 400 years ago, Simone has been on a life-long hunt to find the man who condemned her soul to walk the night forever. She teams up with Flynn to outwit those hoping to find the Chalice and use it for their evil agenda.

Davison plays Professor Lazlo, an elderly, crippled man who is a brilliant professor at the University of Bucharest. Seemingly harmless, he is taken hostage by the villainous Kubichek, who wants Lazlo to lead him to the Judas Chalice.

TNT's Librarian franchise of movies has proved enormously successful for the network. The first installment, The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, ranked as ad-supported cable's #1 movie of 2004. The second installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines, ranks as ad-supported cable's #1 original movie sequel of all time and placed among the top five movie telecasts of 2006.

TNT recently ordered 13 episodes of Electric's thrilling, action-packed drama series Leverage, starring Oscar� winner Timothy Hutton. Devlin and John Rogers (Cosby) are executive-producing the series, which will shoot in Los Angeles and will premiere on the network later this year.

Electric's television credits include The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, starring Noah Wyle which aired on TNT network in December 2004 and was the highest rated movie on cable that year and its sequel, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines, which aired last December on TNT and won an Emmy award for best music composition; and the Sci Fi Channel's The Triangle, which won an Emmy for its Visual Effects, and was the highest-rated miniseries on the cable channel since Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN (2002).
