EMMY WINNER CHRISTOPHER LLOYD JOINS SCI FI'S MIRABILIS

EMMY WINNER CHRISTOPHER LLOYD JOINS SCI FI'S MIRABILIS

New York, NY � August 14,2008 � Three-time Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd has joined the cast of SCI FI Channel's upcoming 4-hour fantasy/adventure miniseries Mirabilis (working title). Lloyd will play Tesselink, a venerable senior elf and accomplished master of bloodsteel sorcery who aids his granddaughter Perfidia (Natassia Malthe) and a band of knights in their quest for the crucible that may save Mirabilis. He is best known for his roles as Emmett "Doc" Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy and as Reverend Jim Ignatowski on television's Taxi.

Once a paradise fueled by the all-powerful sorcery-grade metal known as bloodsteel, the distant land of Mirabilis begins to decay as supplies of the supernatural substance dwindle. The evil warlord Dragon Eye fights to gain control of the world's supply of bloodsteel, which he will use to rule Mirabilis. But, an ancient prophecy propels four ordinary citizens to battle Dragon Eye. Their quest is to find the fabled Crucible � source of all bloodsteel � before the corrupt forces of darkness destroy their world. Mirabilis stars David James Elliott as protagonist John Serrogoth and Natassia Malthe as Perfidia. Emmy nominated Sam Egan (Sanctuary, Jeremiah, The Outer Limits) wrote the script.

Reunion Pictures (Lisa Richardson, Matthew O'Connor, Tom Rowe), RHI Entertainment, (Robert Halmi, Sr. and Robert Halmi, Jr.) and Industry Entertainment (Keith Addis and Andrew Deane) are producing the miniseries. RHI Entertainment will distribute the project internationally.
