--Science Channel Unveils Three Hours of FRINGE Every Tuesday Night, Beginning November 20 at 8 PM ET/PT--

--Special Post-Thanksgiving Marathon Event Featuring the Complete First Season Airs Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Science Channel invites viewers to join FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham, eccentric scientist Dr. Walter Bishop and his estranged son Peter as they investigate the universe of the paranormal and science of the unexplained on the breakthrough series FRINGE. Beginning Thanksgiving Week, the critically-acclaimed franchise returns to its very beginning with an expanded examination of actual fringe science that only Science Channel can provide.

Science Channel is airing all five seasons of FRINGE in 2012 and 2013, starting with the network premiere of the two-hour pilot and first episode on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, from 8-11 PM (ET/PT). To celebrate the premiere, Science Channel is continuing season one of FRINGE with daylong marathons on Friday, November 23 from 10:30 AM - 11 PM (ET/PT) and Saturday, November 24 from 11:30 AM - 11 PM (ET/PT). Following the marathon, FRINGE will air regularly every Tuesday night from 8-11 PM (ET/PT) beginning on Tuesday, November 27 with season two.

Featuring leading experts such as Dr. Michio Kaku, Science Channel will examine phenomena such as time travel, dream sharing and parallel universes with the short-form series, "Science of Fringe". Also, every Tuesday night Science Channel airings of FRINGE will begin with a special appearance by series star John Noble, who will set the stage for the back-to-back-to-back episodes.

"Viewers tuning into FRINGE on Science Channel will see one of television's smartest and most addictive series in a more thought-provoking format than ever before," said Debbie Adler Myers, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Science Channel. "Audiences will find all of the action and riveting drama associated with this pop culture sensation, along with a deeper dive into the mind-blowing science that provides the foundation for the series."

FRINGE explores the ever-blurring line between scientific concepts and reality, where hybrid beings tear through sewers, thieves walk through walls and portals open to parallel universes. Unable to police a world in which science has advanced beyond our wildest dreams-and nightmares-Olivia Dunham (series star Anna Torv) seeks help from Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his jack-of-all-trades son, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson). Under the direction of Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Agents Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole), Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and Lincoln Lee (Seth Gabel), the Fringe Team investigates unusual incidents that defy human logic and unimaginable events that threaten our very existence on a universal scale.

Fringe is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The creative team behind the series includes executive producers J.J. Abrams (Lost, the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible movies), Jeff Pinkner (Alias, Lost), J.H. Wyman (The Mexican, Keen Eddie), Bryan Burk (Lost, Alias, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) and Joe Chappelle (The Wire) and consulting producers Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers), Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Transformers) and Akiva Goldsman (The Da Vinci Code).

For Science Channel, Debbie Adler Myers is general manager and executive vice president, Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production and Dexter Cole is vice president of programming.
