A&E HONORS THE LIFE OF PATRICK SWAYZE WITH ON-AIR TRIBUTE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH

SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF 'BIO REMEMBERS: PATRICK SWAYZE' AT 10:00PM EST/PST

MARATHON OF 'THE BEAST' TO AIR FROM 2:00PM � 6:00PM EST/PST WITH AN ENCORE SHOWING AT 11:00PM EST/PST

New York, NY � September, 15, 2009 - In light of the tragic passing of beloved actor Patrick Swayze, A&E will honor his memory on Wednesday, September 16th, with a special presentation of "Bio Remembers: Patrick Swayze" at 10PM EST/PST and a marathon of "The Beast" from 2:00PM EST/PST � 6:00PM EST/PST along with an encore showing of "The Beast" at 11:00PM EST/PST.

"We are saddened by the loss of one of our generation's greatest talents and a member of the A&E family," said Bob DeBitetto, President & General Manager, A&E Network, "Patrick's work on 'The Beast' was an inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his wife Lisa and his entire family during this difficult time."

"The Beast" starring Patrick Swayze and Travis Fimmel premiered January 15, 2009 on A&E. In "The Beast," the mischievous Barker (Swayze) hazes his young partner Dove (Fimmel) as they go undercover case after case. Barker brilliantly manipulates situations, constantly tests his new partner's abilities and pushes him to delve deeper into the roles of the undercover characters he creates. Although Dove takes a liking to Barker, the new job takes its toll on him. The stress and danger of being an agent quickly makes him realize that he can no longer maintain normal relationships outside of work. Yet that's not the worst of it. The rookie is confronted with a larger challenge: An FBI Internal Affairs team feels Barker may have gone rogue and they try to enlist Dove as a double-agent in the bureau's investigation of his mentor.
