NBC ADDS MORE DRAMA TO 2006-07 WITH SERIES PICKUPS FOR 'MEDIUM,' 'CROSSING JORDAN' AND 'LAS VEGAS'

BURBANK � April 28, 2006 � NBC has picked up three of its hit dramas in "Medium," "Crossing Jordan" and "Las Vegas" for the 2006-07 season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

"These three shows have A+ creative auspices and some of the most loyal audiences on television," said Reilly. "I'm thrilled that we can count on them again next season."

For the 2005-06 season-to-date, "Medium" (Mondays, 10-11 p.m. ET) is delivering a 4.1 rating, 10 share in adults 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers overall. "Medium" is generating the most upscale audience of any regular series in the Monday (10 p.m. ET) hour (in concentration of homes with $100,000-plus incomes in its 18-49 audience).

"Crossing Jordan" (Sundays, 10-11 p.m. ET) is averaging a 3.3 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 and 11.0 million viewers overall so far this season. "Crossing Jordan" is improving by 6 percent on its 18-49 lead-in in the Sunday (10 p.m. ET) hour.

"Las Vegas" (Fridays, 9-10 p.m. ET) is delivering a 3.7 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 11.0 million viewers overall so far this season. Since shifting to Friday nights on March 3, "Las Vegas" has improved the time period by 21 percent in adults 18-49 versus NBC's non-sports season average up to that point.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer, creator and director Glenn Gordon Caron ("Moonlighting"), the chilling drama "Medium" nears the end of its second season and now will return for a third. Inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison DuBois, Emmy winner Patricia Arquette ("Stigmata," "Flirting with Disaster") stars as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people.

As a part-time consultant to the district attorney's office, Allison uses her psychic abilities which consist of talking to dead people, seeing the future and reading people's minds, to solve violent and horrifying crimes that have remained mysteries to her boss D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval, "The Division") and others within the criminal justice system. Jake Weber ("Meet Joe Black") stars as Allison's supportive husband Joe, and Sofia Vassilieva ("Eloise at the Plaza") and Maria Lark ("10.5") star as Ariel and Bridget, the two eldest DuBois children. David Cubitt also stars as Detective Lee Scanlon and Madison and Miranda Carabello play youngest daughter Marie DuBois.

For her performance in this role, Arquette won an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category after the telecast of the initial 16 episodes. Most recently, she received nominations for Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards this year for her portrayal of DuBois.

Caron is creator and executive producer. Kelsey Grammer ("Girlfriends"), Steve Stark, Rene Echevarria and Oscar winner Ronald L. Schwary ("Ordinary People") are executive producers. "Medium" is produced by Picturemaker Productions, Inc. in association with CBS Paramount Network Television and Grammnet Productions.

Currently in its fifth season, "Crossing Jordan" will be celebrating its 100th episode on May 7 and looks forward to a sixth with its popular cadre of coroners. Jill Hennessy ("Law & Order") stars as Jordan Cavanaugh, the beautiful, smart and fearless Boston medical examiner who investigates disturbing topical crimes and offenses.

In the morgue, Jordan works under the guidance of Dr. Garrett Macy (Miguel Ferrer, "Traffic") along with criminalist Nigel (Steve Valentine, "The Muse"), forensic entomologist "Bug" (Ravi Kapoor, "Gideon's Crossing") and grief counselor Lily Lebowski (Kathryn Hahn, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"). Jerry O'Connell ("Jerry Maguire") and Leslie Bibb also star as detectives, who the coroners rely upon to put in the legwork to hunt down perpetrators of these crimes.

"Crossing Jordan" is from Tailwind Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Tim Kring ("Providence") is creator and executive producer. Dennis Hammer ("The David Cassidy Story") and Allan Arkush ("St. Elsewhere"), who directs many of the episodes, are also executive producers.

The fast-paced, sexy drama "Las Vegas" is currently in its third season. From Gary Scott Thompson, the writer of the hit film "The Fast and the Furious," the series follows the elite Las Vegas team charged with maintaining the supervision and security of one of Sin City's hottest casinos.

Oscar and Golden Globe nominee James Caan ("The Godfather," "Misery") stars as Ed Deline, the head of the glamorous Montecito Resort & Casino. With his head of security Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel, "All My Children") -- a former U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native -- they deal with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and rival casinos stealing their big-money players. Rounding out this cast of high rollers is Ed's daughter Delinda (Molly Sims, "Starsky and Hutch"), Mary Connell (Nikki Cox, "Nikki"), Mike Cannon (James Lesure, "For Your Love") and Samantha "Sam" Jane (Vanessa Marcil, "Beverly Hills 90210").

Thompson also serves as executive producer, along with Gardner Stern ("Law & Order," "NYPD Blue"), Justin Falvey ("Rescue Me") and Darryl Frank ("Rescue Me") for this series from NBC Universal Studio and DreamWorks Television.
