[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]

�OPUS DEI AND THE DA VINCI CODE,� A ONE-HOUR SPECIAL IN ASSOCIATION WITH FAITH & VALUES MEDIA, EXCLUSIVE U.S. PREMIERE ONLY ON HALLMARK CHANNEL JUNE 4

Code to �Live Life Authentically� at the Heart of Nation�s Top-Grossing Box Office Hit, �The Da Vinci Code�

With the controversial novel still setting best-seller lists on fire and the blockbuster film adaptation currently in theaters, Hallmark Channel, in association with Faith & Values Media, presents the U.S. television premiere of the documentary �Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code,� premiering Sunday, June 4 (10pm/9c).

The producers of �Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code� were granted exclusive and unprecedented access to Opus Dei, the Catholic organization which plays a large role in the book and movie versions of �The Da Vinci Code.� Examining the myths that circulate about Opus Dei, journalist and former monk Mark Dowd visits Opus Dei centers around the world, including the group's $69 million New York headquarters, known as the �Tower of Power.�

The documentary also features interviews with one of Opus Dei�s leaders, existing and former members of the organization, and renowned authors on the subject, as Dowd explores whether Opus Dei is a splinter cult group of the Catholic Church or the victim of an undeserved bad reputation. Opus Dei began in 1928 after priest Josemari� Escrivi� had a vision in which followers of Christ could live a disciplined life in a burgeoning society, living more authentically in faith with the world.

�It is an absolutely intriguing subject,� said David Kenin, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channels.

�The producers spent three years interviewing members of Opus Dei. The documentary looks at some of the issues the movie portrays and whether or not those representations are fair,� Mr. Kenin concluded.

�Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code� was produced by Canada�s CCTV and had its world premiere on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom.
