SHOWTIME TO LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE ANIMATED WEBISODES BASED ON ITS EMMY�-NOMINATED ORIGINAL SERIES "DEXTER"

"Dexter: Early Cuts" To Debut This Fall On sho.com

LOS ANGELES, CA � (October 8, 2009) � On the heels of the record-breaking premiere of the 4th season of SHOWTIME's Emmy�-nominated series DEXTER, the network has announced the launch of an exclusive animated webisode series entitled Dexter: Early Cuts. The twelve-part series told in four, one to two minute chapters, will premiere on Sunday, October 25 on www.sho.com.

Dexter: Early Cuts was conceived by SHOWTIME as a way to continue building on the mythology and critical mass that has grown around the television series. For the past three seasons, fans have watched Dexter (Michael C. Hall) as he has doled out his distinctive brand of vigilante justice. Now with Dexter: Early Cuts, for twelve weeks fans will get a chance to learn how Dexter's killing techniques evolved, from haphazard to the calculated methods seen on the show.

In this multi-part web series, written by DEXTER producer and writer Lauren Gussis, viewers see the demise of Alex Timmons, a corrupt Gulf War veteran, Gene Marshall, an arsonist, and Cindy Landon, a "black widow." The series will also provide fans with fun and interesting facts about Dexter, including how he bought his boat, the Slice of Life and when he began collecting slides of his victims. Each webisode will be brought to life by a different illustrator. Kyle Baker, an eight-time Eisner Award winner, and one of the genre's biggest names, headlines the roster along with Andres Vera Martinez and Ty Templeton. The stories are driven by voiceover from Dexter (Michael C. Hall), narrating his investigative process as he discovers his victims' guilt, stalks them for reconnaissance and eventually doles out his unique brand of vigilante justice.

In addition to the webisodes, SHOWTIME has created several other innovative initiatives in digital media to support the new season of DEXTER. A multi-input game that crosses multiple platforms, from on-air to online to mobile devices which debuted in late September. Each week users are asked to solve a challenge or find a hidden clue to help reveal a never-before-scene image or video clip from a future episode of the show. Also, fans of the hit series can experience DEXTER via a YouTube game called "Where's Dexter" based on the popular "Where's Waldo" concept, in which users are challenged to find Dexter in various scenarios such as a crowded city street. Additionally, fans will be able to "Dexterize" their Facebook pages, complete with dripping blood and plastic wrap, as well as play a viral online game, DextersChangeTheBaby.com. Through the game, fans can upload their photo and replace the face of Dexter's new baby with their own image. Fans can choose from a series of baby photos and share with friends via Facebook.
