TNT to Introduce New Online Games for Hit Caper Series LEVERAGE and New Undercover Police Drama DARK BLUE

LEVERAGE: Art of the Con (LeverageHQ.com) and DARK BLUE: Undercover (DarkBlueUndercover.com) to Launch in Conjunction with Series' July 15 Premieres

This July, TNT viewers can get in on the action with two of the network's exciting summer series through a pair of exciting, season-long online promotional games. Fans will have a chance to join the hackers, grifters and thieves of the caper series LEVERAGE and the undercover officers of DARK BLUE. Immersive, online experiences will include weekly challenges received directly from series characters. The games will coincide with the season premieres of LEVERAGE, starring Academy Award� winner Timothy Hutton, and DARK BLUE, starring Golden Globe� winner Dylan McDermott, on Wednesday, July 15, at 9 and 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

LEVERAGE: Art of the Con

Last season, fans of LEVERAGE proved themselves worthy of being part of the team in the �Get Ready to Get Even� game at LeverageHQ.com. This season, Nate (Hutton) needs their help in an all-new promotional game. Nate's laptop, which contains valuable, extremely secret information about each person on the team, has been stolen. In the life of a con artist, information is the deadliest weapon. The Leverage team needs game players to recover the files, documents and photos on the laptop by completing a series of missions. Those who accomplish each task will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a multi-city trip to become an expert in the art of the con. One lucky winner will visit Paris, London and New York, sites of some of history's greatest capers. Last season's edition of the LeverageHQ promotional game was visited by more than half a million users, with two out of three respondents to a survey reporting that they watched all of LEVERAGE's first season episodes. This game was developed in collaboration with Lead Dog Marketing.

DARK BLUE: Undercover

Viewers will learn there is a fine line between going under and crossing over as they engage in a new promotional online game for DARK BLUE. At DarkBlueUndercover.com, game players will become members of an elite undercover squad run by Carter Shaw (McDermott). Each player will get a false identity and weekly missions to bring down a gun-running ring. The challenges will force players to make some of the difficult decisions that undercover cops face. Based on these decisions, players will either get caught by the group they are trying to infiltrate; get �flipped� and become seduced by a life of crime; or go deeper undercover. At the end of 10 weeks, those who have taken the challenge will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a trip undercover in Los Angeles with VIP access to the hottest clubs and restaurants, a private helicopter tour of the Sunset strip and a ride with a former undercover LAPD officer. This game was developed in collaboration with Omelet.

About LEVERAGE and DARK BLUE

TNT set Tuesday nights on fire last winter with the first season of LEVERAGE, a thrilling, fast-paced drama series starring Academy Award� winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People). This summer, the gang is back with more elaborate scams designed to exact revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize people. Hutton stars as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son. His highly skilled team includes Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman � Coupling), a grifter who uses her acting skills to corner her marks; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane � TNT's Into the West), a �retrieval specialist� with bone-crunching fighting skills; Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge � Friday Night Lights), a gadget and technology wizard who keeps the team connected and informed; and Parker (Beth Riesgraf � Alvin and the Chipmunks), a slightly off-center thief adept at repelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places. Together, the team puts their energy, quick minds and keen intellects toward securing justice for society's underdogs.

LEVERAGE, which is executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT's The Librarian movies), scored big in its first season, ranking as ad-supported cable's #1 show in its timeslot with an average of 3.7 million viewers.

DARK BLUE is a gripping undercover police drama from prolific producer Jerry Bruckheimer (the CSI series, Without a Trace). The series, which stars Golden Globe� winner Dylan McDermott (The Practice, TNT's The Grid), Omari Hardwick (TNT's Saved), Logan Marshall-Green (The O.C.) and Nicki Aycox (Supernatural), follows the exploits of a crack undercover team of police officers so covert, many of their own colleagues don't even know they are involved. Leading the group is Carter Shaw (McDermott), a deeply wounded character who has lost much of his former life as he struggles to bring down bad guys through complex undercover assignments. His team includes Ty Curtis (Hardwick), a recently married cop who struggles with personal relationships he has developed while undercover; Dean Bendis (Marshall-Green), a shoot-from-the-hip officer whose activities make fellow team members wonder if he has gone over to the bad side; and Jaimie Allen (Aycox), a green patrol cop brought in because of her excellent skill in lying and a shady past.
