"Freakylinks" and "The Others" Added to Chiller's Killer Series Line-Up

BURBANK, Calif. � April 10, 2008 � April marks the celebration of Earth Day and Chiller helps viewers remember the importance of being green. Chiller's killer series lineup will add two more fan-favorites to the schedule with "Freakylinks," created by David S. Goyer, and "The Others," starring Julianne Nicholson ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent"); and critically acclaimed series "Profit" and "Millenium" continue to thrill audiences this month. Scary Sequels Sunday brings viewers a double dose of classic horror sequels every Sunday night in April, and watch out for ghastly tricks on April Fool's Day.

"This month, the Chiller network continues to deliver the best in the horror and thriller genre," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President, Emerging Networks. "We are excited this April to feature our month-long Earth Day celebration in honor of a greener environment."
