ENTERTAINMENT ONE INKS DEAL WITH EMMY-AWARD WINNING WRITER AND PRODUCER STEVEN BOCHCO TO PRODUCE THE TELEVISION SERIES EVOLUTION

Los Angeles/Toronto - March 27, 2012 - Entertainment One (eOne) is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with veteran, award-winning writer/producer Steven Bochco to produce the original one-hour television series entitled, Evolution.

Three million years in the future, Social Darwinism is born once more. In the groundbreaking original television drama, Evolution, a discovery by a tribe of Homo sapiens is about to change the world. A Box that offers the whole of human knowledge has been unearthed and the meekest of the group, THE BOY, is first to interpret its lessons. Though having only primitive materials with which to replicate twenty-third century technology, a formidable leader is born.

Evolution is an underdog story of the highest order, which results in a tale of perpetual tension and suspense.

With nearly 30 years in the industry and winner of ten Emmy awards, Bochco has created some of the most innovative and successful drama series in television history. He co-created and executive produced Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and Hooperman. Under the banner of Steven Bochco Productions, he co-created and executive-produced Doogie Howser M.D., Cop Rock, NYPD Blue, Murder One, Total Security, Brooklyn South, City of Angels and Philly. He also served as executive producer on Civil Wars and The Byrds of Paradise. Most recently, Bochco was Executive Producer and co-creator of the TNT drama, "Raising the Bar".

"I look forward to exploring the mysteries of humanity and the secrets of the universe with eOne. John, Michael, Peter and the entire eOne team have become leaders in the independent television community. Their domestic and international expertise makes the company an ideal partner for a bold series like ours. They think outside the box," said Bochco.

The series will be produced by Entertainment One in association with Steven Bochco Productions. Evolution is created and written by Bochco and Bryan Law. Bochco, along with eOne's John Morayniss and Michael Rosenberg will executive produce. Bryan Law will serve as Supervising Producer. eOne will handle worldwide rights to the series in all media.

"Our goal has been to collaborate with the best creative talent in the business and it doesn't get much better than Steven. He is the artistic powerhouse behind some of the most popular and innovative series in the history of television. Evolution will absolutely blow audiences away," said Michael Rosenberg, eOne Television's EVP, US Scripted Television.

"Our sustained momentum in the US, Canada and worldwide, has afforded eOne the opportunity to collaborate with some of the most talented writers and producers in the business and offer outstanding projects to our partners around the globe. Steven Bochco has an unbelievable track record and this is exactly the kind of project we look for. We couldn't be more excited to take this show to MipTV and secure international broadcast partners on this project," added Peter Emerson, President, eOne Television International.

With a significant global presence in production and distribution of television programming across a wide-range of genres, eOne Television has a successful track record in securing multi-episode, direct to series orders for a number of projects, such as Rookie Blue for ABC and Shaw, Syfy's Haven, The Firm for NBC and Shaw and most recently, Saving Hope for NBC and CTV.

Through strong relationships with broadcasters and content providers, eOne Television International has successfully sold eOne's original and third-party productions to over 500 broadcasters in 150 countries, including key US networks and international pay TV channels.
