UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- May 12, 2005 -- The Dead Zone, the hit series starring Anthony Michael Hall (�61*,� �The Pirates of Silicon Valley,� �Sixteen Candles�), launches its fourth season on USA Network Sunday, June 12 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. Based on characters from the Stephen King novel, the drama returns as one of basic cable�s top-rated series, its sustained success fueled by an outstanding cast, powerful storytelling and striking visual effects.

Produced by Lions Gate Television and CBS Paramount International Television in association with Piller� and The Segan Company, The Dead Zone is a psychological thriller blending action, romance, the paranormal and a continuing quest for justice. In one of the most demanding roles on series television, Hall stars as Johnny Smith, a man injured in a near-fatal car crash, who emerges from a six-year-long coma with psychic powers that allow him to see into the past and future through visions triggered by touch.

Also starring in the ensemble cast are Nicole deBoer (�Star Trek: Deep Space Nine�) as Johnny�s former fianc�e, Sarah; Chris Bruno (�Another World�) as Sarah�s husband, sheriff Walt Bannerman; John L. Adams (�Pacific Blue�) as Johnny�s best friend, Bruce; and David Ogden Stiers (�Curse of the Jade Scorpion�) as Reverend Purdy, the executor of the Smith family trust.

Sean Patrick Flanery (�Dead Lawyers�) returns to reprise his role as Johnny�s archenemy, the unscrupulous young congressman Greg Stillson. Martin Donovan (�Traffic � The Miniseries�), Danny Masterson (�That �70s Show�), Dedee Pfeiffer (�Cybill�), Jennifer Finnigan (�Committed�), Edward Asner (�Lou Grant�), Ben Foster (�Six Feet Under�) and Sarah Wynter (�24�) are among this season�s guest stars.

The Dead Zone was created for television by acclaimed executive producer Michael Piller (�Star Trek: The Next Generation,� �Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,� �Star Trek: Voyager�) and his son, co-executive producer Shawn Piller (�Star Trek: The Next Generation,� Star Trek: Voyager�). Executive producers are Michael Piller, Lloyd Segan (�The Bachelor,� �Boondock Saints,� �Bones�) and Tommy Thompson (�Dark Angel,� �Quantum Leap�).

This season, Johnny continues to explore the potential and the limits of his psychic abilities, while the mystery surrounding his destiny and his fated role in a potential future Armageddon deepens. In the premiere episode, which concludes last season�s cliffhanger finale, Johnny must fight fate � and his future self � in order to keep Rebecca (Wynter) from killing Stillson (Flanery), whom she strongly believes is responsible for her sister's murder.

As the season unfolds, Johnny�s exploits take him into the arms of an exciting young woman with psychic abilities of her own (Finnigan) and he squares off against his most formidable opponent yet. In episodes ranging from high-stakes adventures to political thrillers, he continues to use his powers for good. He reaches out to a young autistic boy; saves an innocent man from execution; takes on a ring of human traffickers in an effort to save an infant from a terrible fate; and investigates the mysterious disappearance of an aging rock star. He even teams up with a dangerous group of criminals in order to avert a tragedy.

Woven throughout the series has been the ongoing mystery surrounding Johnny, Stillson and their murky roles in the future Armageddon Johnny foresees. Since the series premiere, these characters have played their parts in a tapestry of Good vs. Evil. Now, as each man moves forward in his pre-determined role, a new force takes to the stage. By the end of the season, Johnny himself will have to face the possibility that he�s somehow delivered the people he loves to their doom.

Johnny�s visions are rendered through fast motion, slow motion and freeze frame photography, enhanced by cutting-edge digital effects and masterful editing. These powerful visual sequences propel the stories, adding mystery, suspense and emotional impact. The series� visual effects are produced by Stargate Digital Studios. Sam Nicholson, Pete Ware and Jaison Stritch are the visual effects producers.

The Dead Zone is backed by an outstanding production team headed by executive producers Michael Piller, Lloyd Segan and Tommy Thompson. The series is produced by Robert Petrovicz. Shawn Piller is co-executive producer. Anthony Michael Hall is producer. Michael Taylor, Loren Segan and Christina Lynch are supervising producers; Kira Domaschuk is co-producer; Karl Schaefer is executive consultant; and Juan Carlos Coto is consulting producer. Eric A. Stillwell and Amber Woodward are associate producers.

Coinciding with the new season launch, The Dead Zone: The Complete Third Season will be released on DVD Tuesday, June 7. Special features include audio commentary and director interviews for all 12 episodes, a gag reel, deleted scenes and interactive menus.
