DISNEY-ABC DOMESTIC TELEVISION OFFERS FIRST LOOK AT HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SERIES, LEGEND OF THE SEEKER

30-Minute Preview of Nationally Syndicated Action-Adventure Epic Available as a Free Download Exclusively on the iTunes Store

Burbank, CA � October 28, 2008 - Action-adventure fans can enjoy a first look of the highly anticipated epic fantasy series "Legend of the Seeker" before its November 1st premiere weekend. Disney-ABC Domestic Television is offering an extended preview of the nationally-syndicated series as a free download, exclusively available on the iTunes Store (www.iTunes.com). The free download, entitled "Legend of the Seeker: A First Look," will give fans the opportunity to view the first 30-minutes of the upcoming two-hour television event executive-produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, the team that brought the characters of Hercules and Xena to life almost a decade ago.

"Fans have been clamoring to get a first look at the series and, based on the early response from the clips released on the 'Legend of the Seeker' website, we knew this would be a huge success with audiences," noted Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

Shot with the exotic and rugged New Zealand landscape as its backdrop, the one-hour scripted series is an adaptation of internationally bestselling author Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth book series. "Legend of the Seeker" explores the adventures of woodsman Richard Cypher (Craig Horner, "Monarch Cove" and "Blue Water High"), who discovers that he was born to fulfill a prophecy of becoming a guardian hero to oppressed people. With the help of a mysterious woman named Kahlan (Bridget Regan, "Sex and the City" and "Six Degrees") and a wise old wizard named Zedd (Bruce Spence, "Mad Max 2" and "The Matrix Revolutions"), he must stop a ruthless and bloodthirsty tyrant named Darken Rahl (Craig Parker, "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers") from unleashing an ancient evil and enslaving the world.

"Legend of the Seeker" is produced by ABC Studios, marking their first venture into broadcast syndication. Sam Raimi ("Spider-Man," "Spider- Man 2," "Spider-Man 3" and "The Evil Dead"), Rob Tapert ("The Grudge," "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Cleopatra 2525"), Joshua Donen ("The Quick and the Dead"), Ned Nalle (production executive for "Xena: Warrior Princess" and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys") and Ken Biller ("Star Trek: Voyager" and "Six Degrees") serve as executive producers.

"Legend of the Seeker" has been cleared by Disney-ABC Domestic Television in more than 95 percent of the country, including all of the top 50 markets. The series will premiere with a two-hour event the weekend of November 1st (www.LegendoftheSeeker.com for times and channels).
