CBS AND EQAL PRESENT HARPER'S GLOBE

Multi-Platform Social Show Launches Today at HarpersGlobe.com as an Online Companion to CBS's Prime Time TV Series HARPER'S ISLAND

HARPER'S ISLAND Mythology To Be Introduced Online Three Weeks Prior to Broadcast Premiere on April 9

HARPER'S GLOBE Also Available on CBS.com, TV.com, CBS Mobile and Across the CBS Audience Network

HARPER'S GLOBE, the multi-platform series from CBS Interactive and EQAL, creators of lonelygirl15, launched today, introducing online audiences to the mythology of HARPER'S ISLAND three weeks prior to the launch of the prime time CBS television series on April 9. HARPER'S GLOBE, an interactive and social entertainment experience, will complement the weekly television series. HARPER'S ISLAND premieres on the CBS Television Network on Thursday, April 9 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and concludes with the broadcast finale on Thursday, July 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

HARPER'S GLOBE is a social show presented at HarpersGlobe.com where fans can become part of the interactive experience by viewing videos, interacting with the story, participating in the lives of the characters and communicating with the online community. The weekly original episodes featured on the Web site complement the HARPER'S ISLAND storyline with overlapping characters, locations and plots that will continue to evolve throughout the first season of the television show. In addition to being available on HarpersGlobe.com, all content will be available at CBS.com, TV.com, CBS Mobile and across the CBS Audience Network.

HARPER'S GLOBE follows the story of Robin Matthews, played by Melanie Merkosky, a girl with a mysterious past who has recently arrived on Harper's Island to digitize old news archives for the local newspaper and build a community on HarpersGlobe.com. Robin starts tracking the story of the murders that occurred on the island seven years ago; innocently reading and asking questions about the island's past, investigating out of pure curiosity. That is, until the murders begin again and Robin becomes part of the story.

In addition to a new episode premiering every week, characters from HARPER'S GLOBE will upload new content to the Web site each day, such as short videos, text blogs and photos. Registered users wanting to further participate in the experience will be able to create a profile page like the characters' and upload personal content.

HARPER'S ISLAND is about a group of family and friends who travel to a secluded island for a destination wedding. As the wedding festivities begin, friendships are tested and secrets exposed as a murderer claims victims, one by one, transforming the wedding week of fun and celebration into a terrifying struggle for survival. In every episode, someone is killed and every person is a suspect, from the wedding party to the island locals. By the end of the 13 episodes, all questions will be answered, the killer will be revealed and only a few will survive.

Jon Turteltaub ("Jericho") and Jeffrey Bell ("Alias," "Angel," "The X-Files") are executive producers for CBS Paramount Network Television in association with Junction Entertainment. Karim Zreik ("Jericho"), Dan Shotz ("Jericho") and Tyler Bensinger ("Cold Case") are co-executive producers and Ari Schlossberg ("Hide and Seek") is co-executive producer and creator.

The HARPER'S GLOBE episodes are executive produced by Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried, co-founders of EQAL, and Matt Seigel, co-executive produced by James Sterling, directed by Tony Valenzuela, written by Jennifer Yale and starring Melanie Merkosky.
