SLEUTH APRIL HIGHLIGHTS

KEEN EDDIE LEADS THE BRITISH INVASION ON SLEUTH IN APRIL

Frank Sinatra and Tom Selleck Team Up for a 'Tough Guys' Weekend Mid-April and Two Classic Sleuths are Reunited

BURBANK, Calif. � April 10, 2008 � Sleuth boasts a premiere line up in April 2008 with Frank Sinatra and his "tough guy" attitude during a weekend of trouble, including rarely before seen pilot movies starring the one and only "Magnum, PI's" Tom Selleck. Viewers also get a taste of life "across the pond" with the British series marathon of "Keen Eddie." It's a reunion for the classic series "Hart to Hart" with a day of reunion movies.

"This April, Sleuth gives viewers a jam packed schedule featuring the best of old and new talent," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President, Emerging Networks. "We are pleased to have 'Keen Eddie' on the schedule and to reunite one of the greatest pairs in detective history � 'Hart to Hart.'"
