[via press release from Sci Fi]

CARMEN ELECTRA JOINS SCI FI CHANNEL ANIMATED SERIES 'TRIPPING THE RIFT'

Signs On To Ensemble Cast Featuring Stephen Root ('News Radio') And John Melendez ('The Tonight Show With Jay Leno')

NEW YORK -- March 7, 2005 -- Carmen Electra ('Summerland') has joined the cast of SCI FI Channel's hit animated series 'Tripping the Rift.' The second 13-episode season of the humorously risque half-hour series from IDT Film Roman ('The Simpsons,' 'King of the Hill,' 'X-Men: Evolution') is slated to debut in July. A hilarious send-up of all things sci-fi, 'Tripping the Rift' follows the adventures of Jupiter 42, a smuggling vessel led by a stumpy purple alien named "Chode" who, along with his colorful group of misfit shipmates, battles archenemies and new obstacles in space each week.

Electra will lend her voice to the role of the sexy and brilliant love slave "Six," the most advanced android ever created. Aside from serving Chode's carnal needs, Six is also the unheeded voice of reason on the ship, acting as Chode's often-nonexistent conscience. Actors reprising their roles for season two include Stephen Root ('News Radio,' 'King of the Hill') as Chode, the ship's captain; Maurice LaMarche (voice of "Brain" from 'Pinky & The Brain') as "Gus," his sexually-confused and verbally-abused robot slave; Gayle Garfinkle as "T'Nuk," the ship's aesthetically-challenged pilot; Rick Jones as "Whip," Chode's teenaged slacker nephew; and 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno's' John Melendez as the halting voice of the Jupiter 42 -"Bob" to his crew - the fastest ship in the galaxy.

This July, Chode and his crew of misanthropes will anchor an evening of SCI FI original programming featuring 'Ghost Hunters,' which returns for a second, highly-anticipated season and follows a real-life group of moonlighting "ghostbusters" as they investigate hauntings throughout the country, and the new, rocket-bolstered alternative reality series 'Master Blasters.'
