NBC'S HIT DRAMA SERIES "CROSSING JORDAN" OPENS UP ITS CASE FILES WITH NEW INTERACTIVE WEB BLOG LAUNCHING FEBRUARY 13

BURBANK, Calif. -- February 7, 2005 -- NBC's hit drama "Crossing Jordan" breaks new ground on the Internet as it launches an interactive web blog that will allow viewers the chance to use their forensic and investigative skills as they attempt to solve a "cold case" from the series' Boston Coroner's Office.

The website -- www.nigelblog.com -- will go live on the World Wide Web on Sunday, February 13, coinciding with an original episode of the series airing that night. In the episode, Nigel (Steve Valentine) will announce the new website, where he's posted old unsolved murder cases in the hopes of gaining a fresh perspective from bloggers.

Focusing on a triple homicide, the blog will include forensic evidence, autopsy results and police reports on "The Beacon Hill Murders," which involved the slaying of three women in the city's famed Beacon Hill area.

After the initial unveiling of the site in February, new information will continue to be posted on the blog (despite any possible scheduling interruptions) with Nigel and other "Jordan" characters interacting with viewers as they share their ideas on the investigation. Clues regarding information crucial to the case will be included in three episodes of the series airing March 6, 13 and 20 -- with the conclusion being revealed at the end of the month.

Beginning with the Blog posting on March 4, viewers will be offered a "reward" for helping solve the murder case and those who correctly answer online questions about the clues provided will be entered to win a Crossing Jordan prize package. Five winners will be randomly chosen out of correct entries once the case is solved on 3/22.

In the February 13 episode "You Really Got Me," the suicide of a one-armed Boston man leads Jordan (Jill Hennessy) to uncover the missing murder weapon from an eight-year-old Los Angeles homicide after which she helped send the alleged killer to Death Row. However, with five days to go before the execution, Jordan and Woody (Jerry O'Connell) head to L.A. hoping to find evidence that will save an innocent life.

Elsewhere, when the body of a vagrant whom Bug (Ravi Kapoor) witnessed kidnapped ends up in the morgue, the troubled scientist teams up with Detective Roz Framus in his search for answers. Miguel Ferrer, Kathryn Hahn and Valentine also star.

"Crossing Jordan" is from Tailwind Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Tim Kring (NBC's "Providence") is creator and executive producer; Dennis Hammer and Allan Arkush are executive producers.
