ABC Television Network announced today that ten costumes from its upcoming, new original miniseries, �The Ten Commandments,� will be available for auction, with the proceeds to ABC benefiting Habitat for Humanity.

�ABC is proud to partner with RHI Entertainment to give collectors and fans an opportunity to own original costumes from �The Ten Commandments�,� said Bruce Gersh, senior vice president, Business Development, ABC Entertainment and Touchstone Television. �Having this auction�s proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity is a continuation of our commitment to building better communities.�

�We are pleased to support such a worthy cause, while at the same time, making our authentic, one-of-a-kind costumes available to the public,� said Robert Halmi, Sr., chairman of RHI Entertainment and executive producer of the miniseries.

�This is a unique opportunity for fans to add to their collections while helping Habitat for Humanity continue its mission to eliminate poverty housing in the United States and around the world,� said Chris Clarke, senior vice president of Communications for Habitat for Humanity International. �We appreciate the generosity of ABC and RHI Entertainment in this effort.�

�The Ten Commandments,� an epic two-part, four-hour miniseries from RHI Entertainment, is an inspiring motion picture event.

Egypt. The miniseries will air as an �ABC Premiere Event� in HDTV with 5.1-channel surround sound, MONDAY, APRIL 10 & TUESDAY, APRIL 11 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET, both nights) on the ABC Television Network.
