EPIX AND XBOX BRING VIEWERS A "STAR TREK" CELEBRATION

EPIX App Unlocked for all Xbox LIVE Subscribers in Free Preview July 28-29

Star Trek Celebration to feature EPIX Original Docs William Shatner's Get a Life! and The Captains plus 11 Star Trek Movies

New York, NY - July 25, 2012 - EPIX, the premium entertainment network, today announced a free preview of the EPIX app on Xbox 360(R) along with a special programming event, Shatnerific: A Celebration of Star Trek Fandom, bringing together EPIX Original Documentaries about the franchise with 11 popular Star Trek movies to be made available July 28 - 29. A featured event on the Xbox LIVE dashboard, the Star Trek Celebration will make premium programming normally available only to Xbox LIVE Gold customers accessible to all Xbox LIVE subscribers.

Following up the success of the EPIX Original Documentary The Captains, an in-depth look at the Star Trek franchise through the experiences of each actor who has played a Starfleet captain, Shatner returns with William Shatner's Get a Life! which explores the flip side of the coin in the Star Trek phenomena: the fans.

Along with the EPIX Original Documentaries, the Celebration of Star Trek Fandom will also feature an Xbox 360(R) exclusive presentation of all 11 Star Trek films, from the original Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) to the most recent Star Trek (2009).

"Xbox is a great partner for EPIX and we are thrilled to offer this unique experience to the massive fan base that the Star Trek franchise enjoys. Through this partnership we are able to reach an expanded audience that is using Xbox 360 and engage fans with our content to drive even greater awareness of our multiplatform offering," said Mark Greenberg, EPIX CEO and President.

About the EPIX Original Documentary

William Shatner's Get a Life! - Premiering July 28 at 8pm EST Based on Shatner's hugely popular book (in response to his now infamous skit on SNL), this film examines the mystery, longevity and the cultural phenomena of Star Trek and its long-obsessed fans known as "Trekkers." On the surface, the film is an exploration of strangers who have for years attended conventions which looked foolish and almost laughable to some - but Shatner discovers the many secrets and hidden motives behind these individuals' compulsion to attend these events. The end result is a film that reveals a fun and touching side of the fanfare surrounding Star Trek, and examines the thrill of what's happening at these fantasy conventions and the enduring popularity of the film and TV series as Shatner further embraces his role as Captain James T. Kirk and his own impact.
