NBC JOINS WITH GRAHAM YOST ('BAND OF BROTHERS') FOR A NEW LIMITED SERIES THAT WILL DRAMATICALLY EXPLORE SEQUENCES LEADING TO SEPTEMBER 11 TRAGEDY

Events As Delineated In The Best-Selling "9/11 Commission Report."

BURBANK, Calif. � October 27, 2004 � NBC and producer-writer Graham Yost ("Boomtown," "Band of Brothers") announced a new programming event that will define and explore the dramatic circumstances leading up to � and including � the tragic attack on America of September 11, 2001.

The network is also in discussion with a major producer and other top talent to join the project, from NBC Universal Television Studio.

The announcement was made by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment, who said: "With this most important subject matter, we're setting our sites on nothing short of a seminal event for television. We're going to bring together the highest caliber production elements beginning with the very talented Graham Yost and try to bring a cultural event to television that harkens back to the days of 'Roots' and 'The Day After.' The fact that the 9/11 report is a best seller is indicative of not only its importance but also the way in which the story of the events is laid out in a clean narrative fashion. And that is what we expect to do with this miniseries."

NBC Universal Television Studio co-presidents Angela Bromstad and David Kissinger added: "The only way we'd ever attempt a project like this is under the extremely capable auspices of Graham Yost, who can execute a project of this weight with the integrity it demands."

The limited series will chronicle the swirl of secret activity that took place over the months and years preceding the planned attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and on the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The project will showcase the many heroes � living and dead, recognized and unrecognized � who thwarted early efforts and saved untold lives despite the chaos and horror that ensued. It will also examine the shortcomings in the system that helped set the stage for the actual attack.

Yost, who created and served as an executive producer on NBC's critically acclaimed "Boomtown," also drew praise for his work on the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers." He also won an Emmy (Outstanding Miniseries) as a supervising producer of the miniseries "From Earth to the Moon." Yost is executive producer and writer.
