Rob Lowe Takes Lead Role in TNT Original Movie A PERFECT DAY, a JOHNSON & JOHNSON SPOTLIGHT PRESENTATION� movie

Film Based on Best-Selling Novel by Richard Paul Evans, Directed by Peter Levin (Homeless to Harvard) and Written by Joyce Eliason (We Were the Mulvaneys) Set to Premiere on TNT This December

Rob Lowe, who starred in TNT�s extremely popular adaptation of Stephen King�s Salem�s Lot in 2004, has been cast in the lead role in the TNT Original movie A PERFECT DAY, according to an announcement by Michael Wright, senior vice president of original programming for TNT and sister network TBS. This JOHNSON & JOHNSON SPOTLIGHT PRESENTATION� movie is based on the bestseller by Richard Paul Evans and is being directed by two-time Emmy� nominee Peter Levin (Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story, The Lyon�s Den) from a teleplay by four-time Emmy�-nominated writer Joyce Eliason (We Were the Mulvaneys, The Oldest Confederate Widow Tells All). It comes to TNT from Sony Pictures Television and MAGNA Global Entertainment, with Stephanie Germain (The Day after Tomorrow) and MAGNA Global�s Sunta Izzicupo (Buffalo Girls) and Frances Croke Page (Saving Milly, The Wool Cap) serving as executive producers. A PERFECT DAY is slated to premiere this December.

�After having worked with Rob Lowe on previous TNT productions, we are thrilled to have him in the lead role for A PERFECT DAY,� Wright said. �We couldn�t hope for a better actor to bring to the screen this heartwarming drama about one man�s journey through self-discovery.�

�We are delighted to be starting production on A PERFECT DAY and to be working with Rob Lowe, Peter Levin and our partners at Magna Global,� said Helen Verno, executive vice president, movies for television and miniseries, Sony Pictures Television.

A PERFECT DAY tells the story of Robert Harlan, a man who, after being fired from his job, pursues his lifetime dream of writing a novel. But after he achieves enormous success with his book, he loses track of the things he loves the most, only finding his way after a stranger enters his life.

His extensive big-screen credits include Frances Ford Coppola�s The Outsiders, Class, The Hotel New Hampshire, Oxford Blues, Youngblood, St. Elmo�s Fire, About Last Night, Wayne�s World, Tommy Boy, Mulholland Falls, Contact, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Square Dance, for which he received a Golden Globe� nomination. He is currently working on Stir of Echoes: The Dead Speak.

For television, in addition to headlining TNT�s acclaimed miniseries Salem�s Lot, Lowe starred for four seasons in the Emmy�-winning drama The West Wing, earning two Golden Globes� and an Emmy� nomination for his role as Sam Seaborn. His other series credits include the legal drama Lyon�s Den and the crime drama Dr. Vegas, while his television movie credits include TNT�s Framed, with Sam Neill; the CBS holiday drama The Christmas Shoes; Tennessee Williams� Suddenly Last Summer; the Stephen King miniseries The Stand; and Hallmark Hall of Fame�s Thursday�s Child, which earned him a Golden Globe� nomination. Lowe also wrote and directed American Untitled/Desert�s Edge for Showtime.

A PERFECT DAY is the ninth TNT Original to be produced under the JOHNSON & JOHNSON SPOTLIGHT PRESENTATION� movie banner.
