[via press release from ABC Family]


Burbank, Ca (March 22, 2006) - Are we really alone? Has some other intelligent life form permeated society without our knowledge? Find out before it�s too late�watch the marathon of ten back-to-back episodes of INVASION airing on ABC Family, Saturday, April 15 (12:00PM-9:00PM ET/PT).

In the tiny town of Homestead, Florida these types of questions arise after a disastrous hurricane hits, proving to be the beginning of a long treacherous journey into the unknown for its residents. Dedicated park ranger Russell Varon (Eddie Cibrian), a divorced father of two who is expecting a third child with his new wife, local television reporter Larkin Groves (Lisa Sheridan), has always been skeptical about the paranoid theories of his wayward brother-in-law, Dave (Tyler Labine). But, after a number of bizarre occurrences take place in his community -- his daughter, Rose (Ariel Gade), claims to have seen hundreds of lights during the storm and his ex-wife, Dr. Mariel Underlay (Kari Matchett) turning up naked outdoors with no memory of the night before -- and suspicious incidents involving Sheriff Tom Underlay (William Fichtner); Russell finds a change of heart and begins investigating the truth while unknowingly embarking in a fight for the survival of his family, Homestead and ultimately the whole human race.

"Invasion" stars William Fichtner as Sheriff Tom Underlay, Eddie Cibrian as Russell Varon, Lisa Sheridan as Larkin Groves, Kari Matchett as Dr. Mariel Underlay, Tyler Labine as Dave Groves, Evan Peters as Jesse Varon, Ariel Gade as Rose Varon, Alexis Dziena as Kira Underlay and Aisha Hinds as Mona Gomez.

Shaun Cassidy created the series and serves as executive producer. Lawrence Trilling (director � "Alias," "Nip/Tuck," "Scrubs") is co-executive producer and multiple Emmy Award-winning director Thomas Schlamme ("The West Wing," "ER," "Sports Night") is executive consultant.
