NBC TO PICK UP NINE ADDITIONAL EPISODES OF RETURNING DRAMA 'CHUCK' TO COMPLETE FULL-SEASON ORDER FOR 2008-09

BURBANK -- August 28, 2008 - NBC will pick up nine additional episodes of its sophomore drama "Chuck" (Mondays, 8-9 p.m. ET) to provide the series with a full-season order for 2008-09, it was announced today by Teri Weinberg, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment.

"We couldn't be more excited with the creative direction Josh (Schwartz) and his team are executing on 'Chuck,'" said Weinberg. "This show has really hit its stride and deserves a full-season commitment to carry out the producers' vision for this unique series."

"Chuck" premieres its new season on Monday, September 29 (8-9 p.m. ET).

The world's nerdiest secret agent is back as executive producer Josh Schwartz ("Gossip Girl," "The O.C.") and executive producer-director McG ("Charlie's Angels," "We Are Marshall") team up again to bring back the action-comedy series about Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, "Less Than Perfect") -- a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government's most vital secret agent.

When Chuck opens an e-mail subliminally encoded with government secrets, he unwittingly downloads an entire server of sensitive data into his brain. Now, the fate of the world lies in the unlikely hands of a guy who works at a Buy More Electronics store. Instead of fighting computer viruses, he must now confront assassins and international terrorists.

With the government's most precious secrets in Chuck's head, Major John Casey (Adam Baldwin, "My Bodyguard") of the National Security Agency resumes his responsibility of protecting Chuck. Casey's partner is the CIA's top agent (and Chuck's dream girl), Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski, "Gone"). Also starring are Joshua Gomez ("Without a Trace") as Morgan Grimes -- Chuck's best buddy, Sarah Lancaster ("What About Brian?") as Chuck's ever-supportive sister, Ellie, and Ryan McPartlin ("Living With Fran") as "Captain Awesome," Ellie's fianc´┐Ż. Chuck's Buy More team consists of Big Mike (Mark Christopher Lawrence, "The Pursuit of Happyness") and the Nerd Herd, which includes Lester (Vik Sahay, "Time Bomb"), Jeff (Scott Krinsky, "The O.C.") and Anna (Julia Ling, NBC's "ER").

Schwartz and Chris Fedak wrote, "Chuck," which is produced by College Hill Pictures, Wonderland Sound and Vision, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
