�BROTHERS & SISTERS� PICKED UP FOR A FULL SEASON

ABC�s new hit series �Brothers & Sisters� was picked up for a full season order, Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment, announced today. The critically acclaimed drama marking Calista Flockhart�s triumphant return to primetime television focuses on the Walker family, five complicated adult siblings who embrace one another unconditionally while striving to reflect the perceived perfection of their role model parents. The series is executive-produced by Ken Olin, playwright Jon Robin Baitz and Greg Berlanti.

��Brothers & Sisters� is a great addition to our Sunday night lineup and has given us a strong complement to �Desperate Housewives,�� said McPherson.

This past Sunday �Brothers & Sisters� won the 10 o�clock hour among Adults 18-49 (4.9/12) and across key women (W18-34 - 5.3/14, W18-49 - 7.2/17 & W25-54 - 8.2/18), defeating both CBS and NBC in the hour (fast affiliate ratings for 10/15). The ABC freshman is the top new program on any night in the 10 o�clock hour among Adults 18-49 and is the second-highest-rated new series of the season among Adults 18-49. �Brothers & Sisters� leads its CBS drama competition in the time period across key adults demos by 47% in Adults 18-34 (4.4/12 vs. 3.0/8) and 22% with Adults 18-49 (5.5/14 vs. 4.5/11).

About �Brothers & Sisters�:

�Brothers & Sisters� is a compelling, new one-hour primetime drama from executive producers Ken Olin, playwright Jon Robin Baitz and Greg Berlanti about the California-based Walker family. In the series, we meet a collection of incredibly intertwined and somewhat damaged adult siblings who embrace one another unconditionally while striving to reflect the perceived perfection of their role model parents. In the days ahead, they will navigate waves of temptation, deception and grief.

�Brothers & Sisters� stars Calista Flockhart (�Ally McBeal�) as Kitty, Rachel Griffiths (�Six Feet Under�) as Sarah, Sally Field (�Norman Rae�) as Nora Holden, Ron Rifkin (�Alias�) as Saul Holden, Patricia Wettig (�thirtysomething�) as Holly, Balthazar Getty (�Alias�) as Thomas, Dave Annable (�Reunion�) as Justin, Matthew Rhys (�Titus,� �Love and other Disasters�) as Kevin, John Pyper-Ferguson (�Unforgiven,� �Nightstalker�) as Joe and Sarah Jane Morris (�Felicity�) as Julia.

Ken Olin (�Alias,� �thirtysomething�), Jon Robin Baitz (�The Substance of Fire,� �The West Wing�) and Greg Berlanti (�Jack & Bobby,� �Everwood�) are executive producers. The series is produced by Touchstone Television.

�Brothers & Sisters� is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC�s selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning.
