Peter Gallagher ('The O.C.'), Jamie-Lynn Sigler ('The Sopranos'), Kristin Lehmann ('Prison Break'), Jenna Boyd (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants') and Two-Time Academy Award(R) Nominee Peter Fonda ('Easy Rider') Star in the Lifetime Original Miniseries 'The Gathering'

The Two-Part, Four-Hour Miniseries from "Battlestar Galactica" Producer David Eick, "X-Files" Executive Producer John Shiban and Sony Pictures Television to Air This October

LOS ANGELES, July 5 -- Peter Gallagher ("The O.C."), Jamie- Lynn Sigler ("The Sopranos"), Kristin Lehmann ("Prison Break"), Jenna Boyd ("Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants") and two-time Academy Award(R) nominee Peter Fonda star in the chilling new original miniseries, "The Gathering," from the creative minds of David Eick ("Battlestar Galactica") and John Shiban ("X-Files"). The two-part, four-hour drama from Sony Pictures Television follows the story of Michael Foster (Gallagher), a doctor in search of his wife, Ann (Lehman), after she vanishes without a trace. Without any logical explanations for her disappearance, Michael's search leads him to dark and sinister findings, including the existence of a cabal of witches gathering in New York. Tom Patricia (Lifetime's "Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story") also serves as executive producer and Bill Eagles ("CSI") directs. "The Gathering" is Lifetime's second original miniseries, following in the footsteps of network's 2005 acclaimed and highly rated drama, "Human Trafficking." The miniseries is currently in production in Toronto and will premiere this October on Lifetime Television.

In "The Gathering," Dr. Michael Foster wakes up after a disturbing night to find his wife Ann missing from their home. With the local police refusing to help and community speculation that Ann ran off with another man, Michael is left with only the puzzling visions he had the night of Ann's disappearance including a dying raven, a bloody circle on the wall and cryptic images of Ann and his daughter Zee (Boyd).

As Michael attempts to uncover the mystery of Ann's disappearance, he befriends one of Zee's teachers, Maggy Rue (Sigler), who reveals to him that Ann may be involved with an ancient religious sect of witches determined to dominate the world, even resorting to murder to get what they want. But as Michael gets closer to finding his wife - and the truth - he discovers very powerful people including wealthy real-estate developer, Thomas Carrier (Fonda), are also involved and quickly learns there is no one he can trust.

Peter Gallagher most recently starred for four seasons as Sandy Cohen in the FOX drama "The O.C." Gallagher began his career on stage, gaining critical acclaim for his work in "Sky Masterson" and "Guys and Dolls" before earning a Tony Award nomination for his starring role in "Long Days Journey into Night."

His film credits include "While You Were Sleeping," "To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday," "The Man Who Knew Too Little," "American Beauty," "Sex, Lies and Videotape," "How to Deal," "Center Stage" and "Mr. Deeds."

An accomplished singer, Epic Records released Gallagher's album "7 Days in Memphis" last November.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is best known for playing Meadow Soprano on HBO's critically acclaimed, Emmy(R)-Award winning drama "The Sopranos." Sigler's performance on the show earned her the 1999 and 2000 Hollywood Reporter Young Star Award for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series, as well as two ALMA Award nominations for Best Actress in a Drama Series.
