DEXTER Goes To Videogame Consoles!

Marc Ecko Entertainment and Showtime Networks Partner to Bring "Dexter" to Videogame Consoles

Players Enter the Conflicted World of "The Dark Defender"

New York, New York - (March 5, 2008) - Marc Ecko Entertainment today announced it has entered into a production agreement with Showtime Networks to design a videogame based on the Emmy� and Golden Globe� winning hit television series "DEXTER". Marc Ecko Entertainment will develop the property for interactive media in close collaboration with Showtime Networks to guarantee its faithfulness to the spirit of the groundbreaking show.

DEXTER follows Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department whose perfectly respectable persona hides a dark compulsion: he is a serial killer who hunts down people who have escaped justice.

"DEXTER is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling videogame," said Marc Fernandez, Vice President of Marc Ecko Entertainment. "Our game designers, writers, and artists are going to give Dexter's morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love."

"DEXTER is one of the most popular shows on SHOWTIME with a particular strong fan base among gamers. It's a very logical jump to create a game with the web site IGN.com naming it 2007's �Best Television Program'," said Len Fogge, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Digital Media and Research at Showtime Networks. "We're confident Marc Ecko Entertainment's team has the unique talents to take Dexter to the interactive space in the right way."

Marc Ecko Entertainment handled the production side of 2005's Getting Up and is currently working on an untitled project with developer Human Head. The Dexter game is in pre-production and Showtime Networks and Marc Ecko Entertainment are in talks with a handful of developers to bring the game to life. More details will be announced in upcoming months.
