"30 Rock" Goes "360" With Jack Donaghy's Online Business Courses

Original Digital Production "Fears, Secrets & Desires" Launches This Summer

NEW YORK � April 2, 2008 � NBC Digital Entertainment today announced its full slate of content for the Summer and Fall seasons. Among the highlights are original webisodes for "Heroes," "Chuck" and "The Office" as well as "30 Rock 360," a new original digital production - "Fears, Secrets & Lies" and extensive digital features for each new show. The announcements were made by Vivi Zigler, Executive Vice President, NBC Digital Entertainment.

"The breadth and depth of our digital content is literally exploding this season," said Zigler. "We're incredibly lucky to have such collaborative writers, producers and actors to work with, all of whom help us make the entertainment experience so much richer for our users."

New chapters of webisodes for "Heroes," "Chuck" and "The Office" will debut on NBC.com beginning in July. Additional chapters of webisodes for each show will roll out throughout the season. Each chapter of webisodes will continue to weave online with on-air creative to give fans a deeper entertainment experience.

"30 Rock" joins "The Office," "Heroes" and "Lipstick Jungle," and goes "360" next season. Fans of the Emmy-winning comedy can learn from the best through Jack Donaghy's Online Business Courses (or "Jack U"), have access to Jack's blog and offer their own business advice by uploading videos. Other challenges for users will include submitting skits for "TGS," enacting provided skits from "TGC," user response to "Ask Tina" and guided tours of their workplaces (in response to Kenneth the Page's tours).

NBC.com will also debut its second season of original productions with "Fears, Secrets & Desires." This series, detailed below, will be available exclusively on NBC.com.

A comprehensive list of digital features, by show, follows.

Original Digital Production:

"Fears, Secrets, & Desires"

The new Upfront process allows NBCU to continue its 'customer-first' approach, while working to create new advertising models, define more effective metrics and provide a better return on its clients' investments.
