BRUCE BOXLEITNER (BABYLON 5) WILL STAR IN NEW SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE 51

New York, NY - April 23, 2010 - Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5) will star as a military hero nearing retirement in the upcoming Syfy Saturday Original Movie, 51. The movie is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in 2011.

A co-production with After Dark Films, 51, co-starring John Shea (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) chronicles what happens after political pressure from the American public forces the Air Force to allow a few well-known reporters limited access to the most secretive base on the planet: Area 51, the rumored repository of captured alien technology and extra-terrestrial beings. When one of the base's hidden "long term visitors" exploits this unprecedented visit as a chance to liberate himself and his fellow alien captives, Area 51 turns from a secure military installation to a horrifying destination of terror. Directed by Jason Connery (The Devil's Tomb).

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities.
