MARK HARMON STARS IN USA NETWORK'S ORIGINAL MOVIE BASED ON THE NOVEL BY THE PULITZER PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR "JOHN SANDFORD'S CERTAIN PREY"

World Premiere Sunday, November 6 at 9/8c on USA Network Following Full Day "NCIS" Marathon

NEW YORK, September 22, 2011 - USA Network presents the world premiere of the original movie JOHN SANDFORD'S CERTAIN PREY, based on the novel by best selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford, on Sunday, November 6 at 9/8c. The movie stars multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Mark Harmon ("NCIS") as Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport. With the body count rising, Davenport pursues a hit woman and a murderous lawyer. The movie was written and directed by Chris Gerolmo ("Citizen X," "Mississippi Burning"). Harmon serves as executive producer along with Michael Jaffe and Howard Braunstein of Jaffe-Braunstein Films, LTD ("The Informant," "The Client List").

NCIS, one of USA's highest-rated acquired series - and one of the highest-rated series on television - will precede the original film, with an all-day marathon beginning at 10am ET on USA and running through the premiere of JOHN SANDFORD'S CERTAIN PREY at 9/8c. USA will also air for the first time an episode from the eighth season of NCIS as the last episode of the marathon.

JOHN SANDFORD'S CERTAIN PREY centers on Lucas Davenport (Harmon), the Deputy Chief of Police for the city of Minneapolis. Davenport doesn't need his job; he could have retired long ago with the money he made designing computer simulations. But Davenport loves what he does just as much as he loves nice suits, fast cars and women. When a cop is shot after witnessing the murder of the wife of a local real estate lawyer, Davenport is called to the scene. The cops quickly zero in on the husband as the prime suspect until a team of FBI agents (or "feebs" as Davenport describes them) descends on Minneapolis with evidence linking the crime to elusive hit woman Clara Rinker (Tatiana Maslany). Taking charge of the investigation, Davenport suspects that Clara is not working alone and sets his sights on Carmel Loan (Lola Glaudini), a high-powered attorney with an intense obsession for the real estate lawyer. As Carmel and Clara try to cover up their crimes, the body count grows and Davenport does what he does best -- break all of the rules to nab this deadly duo.

There are over 20 bestsellers in the PREY series of novels; CERTAIN PREY is based on the tenth novel.
