KELLY PRESTON ("THE TENTH CIRCLE," "DEATH SENTENCE") TO GUEST STAR ON NBC'S 'MEDIUM' FOR A FOUR EPISODE ARC AS AN ATTRACTIVE VENTURE CAPITALIST WHO SEES SOMETHING SPECIAL IN JOE (JAKE WEBER) AND HIS NEW INVENTION, WHICH ULTIMATELY CREATES TENSION IN

BURBANK -- March 24, 2008 -- Actress Kelly Preston ("The Tenth Circle," "Death Sentence") will guest star in NBC's hit drama "Medium" for a four episode arc, beginning Monday, April 14, 10-11:00 p.m. ET. Beginning with an episode entitled "Partners In Crime," Preston will play Meghan Doyle, an attractive venture capitalist who likes what she sees when Joe Dubois (Jake Weber) makes a presentation on his new solar power-based invention to her investment firm. Her decision to independently fund and become business partners with Joe ultimately creates tension in his marriage to Allison (Emmy winner Patricia Arquette), it was announced today by Executive Producer Glenn Gordon Caron.

"We're thrilled to have Kelly join us for the final episodes of Season 4," said Caron. "For the role of Meghan Doyle, a venture capitalist who decides to underwrite Joe, we needed an actress who exuded both intelligence and sexuality. Someone who could stand toe-to-toe with Patricia and Jake, and credibly create chaos in a household and a marriage that is as strong as any on television."

Preston has proven her versatility with strong performances in smaller independent films including "From Dusk 'Til Dawn" and "Citizen Ruth" as well as in hit feature films, including her breakout role in "Jerry McGuire" opposite Tom Cruise. Since then, she has appeared alongside Michael Keaton in "Jack Frost," Jim Carrey in "The Cat in the Hat" and received critical notices for her role opposite Kevin Costner in "For the Love of the Game." She appeared in "Battlefield Earth," a film produced by her husband of 16 years, John Travolta, and most recently starred with Kevin Bacon in "Death Sentence." Later this year, Preston will star in "The Tenth Circle," based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Jodi Picoult.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer, creator and director Glenn Gordon Caron ("Moonlighting"), "Medium" is a chilling drama series inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison DuBois. Emmy-winning Patricia Arquette ("Stigmata," "Flirting with Disaster") stars as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people. Arquette received the Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for her performance as DuBois after the telecast of the initial 16 episodes of the critically acclaimed series. Currently, she is nominated for an Emmy in the same category.

In the fourth season, Allison and her family's world is turned upside down when her abilities are publicly exposed, resulting in sweeping changes both professionally and personally. For the past three seasons, Allison has served as a part-time consultant to the district attorney's office, using her psychic abilities, which consist of talking to dead people as well as seeing the future in her dreams, to solve violent and horrifying crimes that have remained mysteries to her now former boss D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval, "The Division") and others within the criminal justice system. Jake Weber ("Meet Joe Black") stars as Allison's supportive husband Joe, and Sofia Vassilieva ("Eloise at the Plaza") and Maria Lark ("10.5") star as Ariel and Bridget, the two eldest DuBois children. David Cubitt ("10.5: Apocalypse") also stars as Detective Lee Scanlon and Madison Carabello plays the youngest daughter, Marie DuBois.

Caron is creator and executive producer. Kelsey Grammer ("Girlfriends"), Steve Stark, Rene Echevarria and Oscar winner Ronald L. Schwary ("Ordinary People") are executive producers. "Medium" is produced by Picturemaker Productions, Inc. in association with CBS Paramount Network Television and Grammnet Productions.
