ABC.COM TEAMS WITH KIA MOTORS TO PRESENT "MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE: THE DHARMA INITIATIVE"

First of Five-Part Webisode Series Once Thought to Be Lost Now Available on ABC.com

ABC.com and Kia Motors America (KMA) unveil the first webisode in a five-part short-form series titled "Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative." Exclusively sponsored by Kia Motors, "Mysteries of the Universe" is a fictional "documentary" series set in the early 1980s which takes an in-depth look into a variety of unsolved mysteries.

Once thought to be Lost, this all-new explosive documentary project provides a full-scale investigation into the so-called "Dharma Initiative." Through interviews, research, eyewitness accounts and more, the short-form series attempts to uncover the truth behind this shadowy organization, including the possible existence of a secret society with links to covert locations around the globe, including a South Pacific island, which is the subject of intense speculation, but whose whereabouts have never been confirmed.

With the first episode now available, new episodes from the five-part series will roll out monthly through November 2009. Future episodes will screen as follows:

Episode 2 Tuesday, August 4, 2009

Episode 3 Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Episode 4 Thursday, October 15, 2009

Episode 5 Monday, November 16, 2009

For more information on and to view the first episode of "Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative," go to abc.com/lostmysteries.

In conjunction with the roll-out of the short-form series and the all-new 2010 Kia Forte vehicle launch, ABC.com and Kia Motors have teamed up to co-promote the series in four issues of Entertainment Weekly aligned with the release of each new webisode. The first issue is currently on newsstands.
