SYFY AND IGN.COM CREATE IMAGINATIVE NEW ONLINE PRODUCTION SITE ENABLING FANS TO CREATE ELEMENTS OF A SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE -- FROM CONCEPT AND CHARACTER TRAITS TO CREATURES AND DIALOGUE

INNOVATIVE 15-MONTH LONG B MOVIE MOGUL PARTNERSHIP KICKS OFF FRIDAY, JUNE 25

New York, NY - June 22, 2010 - Want to create the next mega-Syfy Saturday Original Movie? Beginning Friday, June 25, Syfy and IGN.com will launch an imaginative, innovative online production site enabling fans a unique opportunity to build - from start to finish - a movie that will air on Syfy in 2011.

B Movie Mogul allows users to select everything from the movie concept, title, creatures, wardrobe, dialogue and promotional taglines to how a character gets killed - even the character's final words!

Online "producers" will also have access to development and production meetings through updates written by both IGN and Syfy executives, as well as being the first to see initial creature designs and artwork.

Kicking off before the Saturday, June 26 premiere of the highly anticipated Saturday Original Movie Dinocroc vs Supergator - produced by B Movie cult icon Roger Corman - B Movie Mogul begins with a six week voting period. Fans can choose among the following initial story concepts, which are major tenets of the science fiction genre:

BERMUDA TRIANGLE

When the President's plane goes down in the Bermuda Triangle, a rescue force discovers that the cause of unexplained disappearances is not an electromagnetic force or weather anomalies - it's a monstrous alien creature.

ROSWELL

In 1947, something crash-landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Pieces of the strange craft were found, photographed and quickly confiscated by the U.S. government - but no one ever talks about the living creature that was recovered from the site.

2012

On December 21st in the last year of the Mayan calendar, something thought long dead rises to live again - and that means trouble for civilization.

The winning movie concept will be announced during the Saturday, August 14 Saturday Original Movie. Once the movie has been chosen, fans will continue creating the movie by selecting specific details about character and plot, revising these broad concepts to provide a fresh perspective on these genre staples.

B Movie Mogul also includes:

· Inside info from cast/director/Syfy staff

· Promotional opportunities such as:

· Winning props from the set and from past Syfy Saturday Original Movies

· DVD Giveaways

· Creature profile pieces

· Trivia Games
