New York, NY, July 26, 2006 �The N has greenlit a second season of Beyond The Break for an additional 10 half-hour episodes scheduled to premiere early 2007 and will wrap season one of its hit summer series, it was announced today by Sarah Tomassi Lindman, Vice President, Production and Programming, The N.

The nighttime network for teens gives viewers a chance to catch the entire series as the network presents nine, back-to-back episodes of Beyond The Break in a marathon on Thursday, July 27 from 8:00 p.m. � 12:30 a.m. (ET) leading up to the premiere of the season one finale on Friday, July 28 at 8:30 p.m. (ET). Immediately following the finale, The N will premiere an all-new episode of the one-hour mystery, Whistler at 9:00 p.m. (ET).

�Beyond the Break has proven to be a ratings success and a sizzling summer hit with our teen viewers,� said Lindman. �Season two will bring more of the hot Hawaiian beaches and juicy relationship drama to our audience.�

Emotional waves crash down on the beaches of Oahu when broken hearts and teen angst threaten the all-female surf squad�s position as top contenders. Can the ladies of WaveSync, a struggling surf company, stay afloat when matters of the heart intervene? In the finale, Dawn, Birdie, Kai and Lacey let boy troubles get the best of them. Dawn unsuccessfully tries to deflect Shoe�s feelings for her by setting him up on a blind date, but quickly realizes that his unrequited love is not fading fast enough. Meanwhile, �Big Wave Bailey� reveals a softer side to his playboy persona when he reveals to Birdie his true feelings for her. To his surprise her heart still belongs to her military boyfriend Marcus and her feelings are stronger than ever. And finally, caused by jealousy over Vin, Kai slips down a deadly path of prescribed medication to help cope with the pain she has caused her loyal friend Lacey.

Beyond the Break is an intense dramatic series combining surf and sun as it drops in on the competitive world of professional surfing. Four passionate women with diverse backgrounds will pursue their dreams of becoming professional surfers. But in order to remain afloat, each of them must overcome issues to capture surf stardom from WaveSync.

The cast features: David Chokachi (Baywatch, Witchblade), Tiffany Hines as Birdie (Grey�s Anatomy), Natalie Ramsey as Lacey (Cruel Intentions 3, Pleasantville), Suzie Pollard as Dawn (Hack), Ross Thomas as Bailey (Cutting Edge 2, What�s Bugging Seth), Michael Copon as Vin (One Tree Hill) and newcomers Jason Tam (Broadway�s A Chorus Line) as Shoe and Sonya Balmores as Kai.

Created by Michael D. Jacobs and BME�s David Brookwell and Sean McNamara (That�s So Raven, Even Stevens, Raise Your Voice), MarVista and BME will both serve as producers for the half-hour series with MarVista handling the worldwide distribution. Writers on the series include Matt Dearborn who served as the co-producer of Beverly Hills 90210 and whose previous writing credits include Just for Kicks and Romeo for Nickelodeon, Phil of the Future, Even Stevens, and The Secret World of Alex Mack.
