CHILLER IS THE FAN DESTINATION FOR ORIGINAL HORROR THIS JULY

Burbank, Calif. - June 26, 2008 - Chiller becomes more than just the home of your favorite horror films and this series this July. The network's first original webisode series, "The Hills Are Alive," premieres July 22 on Chillertv.com. Also on Chillertv.com, the second edition of the successful "Dare 2 Direct Film Festival" is soliciting new films for this year's contest. Winners will be announced on Halloween.

"We are thrilled as Chiller premieres its first original online series from Caroline Thompson, one of Tim Burton's accomplished collaborators," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice-President, Emerging Networks, NBC Universal. "We also are standing by the mailbox to see the newest entries in "Dare 2 Direct 2." We want to showcase what our fans scare up this year."

Summer vacation is scarier than ever before this July on Chiller when the network frightens viewers with weekend marathons and thriller premieres, featuring two of America's biggest stars - Kathy Bates and Dustin Hoffman. This month, Chiller brings viewers along on a summer tour of haunted houses for a weekend in hell and Chiller Summer Camp continues with even more creatures and crazies. Additionally, Chiller brings viewers a Lost Weekend featuring a movie that was one of the main inspirations for the hit TV series "Lost."
