CHUCK NORRIS RETURNS TO CBS FOR "WALKER, TEXAS RANGER: TRIAL BY FIRE," A NEW TELEVISION MOVIE THAT HAS BEGUN PRODUCTION IN DALLAS, TEXAS FOR BROADCAST ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Sheree J. Wilson, Judson Mills and Clarence Gilyard Also Return

Janine Turner Also Stars

Chuck Norris reprises his role as Texas Ranger Cordell Walker in WALKER, TEXAS RANGER: TRIAL BY FIRE, a new television movie that has begun production in Dallas, Texas for broadcast on the CBS Television Network. Series stars Sheree J. Wilson (Alex Cahill), Judson Mills (Francis Gage) and Clarence Gilyard (James Trivette) also return for the movie in which Walker must try to find a teenager who is on the run from a dangerous crime syndicate, and also clear an innocent colleague who is framed for murder. Janine Turner plays a forensics expert.

A missile guidance component inadvertently falls into the hands of a 13-year-old boy who becomes the target of a crime syndicate determined to recover it. When Walker (Norris) responds to a message left by the boy's father asking for help, he goes to their home and discovers that the father has been brutally murdered. The boy shows up while Walker and Gage (Mills) are at the murder scene and, when they attempt to remove him from the house, they are also attacked. The boy manages to escape but remains the target of the men whose only mission is to recover the key component which gives missiles 100 percent accuracy in hitting a target.

Meanwhile, forensics expert Kay McCord (Turner) is investigating the murder of a woman who she saw leave a local bar with Ranger Rhett Harper (Andre Kristoff). Though Harper fervently denies any knowledge of the crime, D.A. Alex Cahill (Wilson) is forced to arrest him. Walker believes in Harper's innocence and vows to help clear his name.

Texas Ranger Trivette (Gilyard) is given the opportunity to train recruits at CIA Headquarters in Quantico, VA.

During its eight season-run from 1993 to 2001, "Walker, Texas Ranger" was Saturday's top show, peaking in the 1995-96 season with an average audience of 19.4 million viewers.

WALKER, TEXAS RANGER: TRIAL BY FIRE is being produced by Paramount Network Television. Chuck Norris, Aaron Norris and Leslie Greif ("Walker, Texas Ranger") are the executive producers. Aaron Norris also serves as the director from a script by John Lansing & Bruce Cervi ("Walker, Texas Ranger").
