[via press release from FOX]

"TRU CALLING" RETURNS WITH TWO-HOUR SEASON PREMIERE THURSDAY, MARCH 31, ON FOX

Eliza Dushku and Jason Priestley Star

What would you do if you could relive a day? If you're Tru Davies (Eliza Dushku, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), you'd save lives. TRU CALLING will make its second season premiere with a special two-hour broadcast Thursday, March 31 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The series will then air Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

In season one of TRU CALLING, we were introduced to Tru, a smart, sexy, recent college graduate who - when her high-powered medical internship fell through - found herself working the midnight shift at a morgue. Tru was shocked to discover that dead bodies could speak to her and ask for help in preventing their deaths, and when they did, she would relive the day and have the chance to prevent their untimely demise. Tru also discovered that her mother, who was killed when Tru was only 12 years old, had the same ability. The audience learned that Tru's father was involved in her mother's murder, although Tru herself remains unaware.

Jason Priestley ("Beverly Hills 90210") joined the series as Jack Harper for the final seven episodes of season one. Tru came to learn that Jack is her opposite - his mission is to guarantee that the people who ask for Tru's help still die the second time around. In the season finale, Tru and Jack found themselves on a collision course with the stakes as high as they could be after the body of Tru's brother, Harrison (Shawn Reaves), asked for help. As an epic battle for life and death between Tru and Jack began, Tru's attempts to save Harrison led to the shocking death of her own on-again, off-again boyfriend.

Season two begins with the battle still raging. Tru's father moves to the city so that he can work with Jack and they can maintain their alliance without Tru's knowledge. Meanwhile, Davis (Zach Galifianakis), the quirky morgue staffer for whom Tru works, continues to support Tru on her missions to save lives.

TRU CALLING is from 20th Century Fox Television and Original Television. Jon Harmon Feldman ("Dawson's Creek," "American Dreams") is the creator/executive producer. Neil Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Parouse are also executive producers. Michael Katleman and Jane Espenson are co-executive producers.
