TED RAIMI TO GUEST STAR IN HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED ACTION-ADVENTURE SERIES "LEGEND OF THE SEEKER"

Nationally Syndicated Series From Disney-ABC Domestic Television and ABC Studios Also Taps David de Lautour (Xena: Warrior Princess) for Supporting Role

Burbank, CA, September 2, 2008 - Ted Raimi ("Spider-Man 3," "SeaQuest DSV"), actor and brother of "Legend of the Seeker" Executive Producer Sam Raimi, will guest star in an upcoming episode of the epic fantasy series "Legend of the Seeker," it was announced today. The fourth installment, titled ´┐ŻBounty,' will showcase Raimi playing the character of Sebastian, a mapmaker skilled in the lost art of cartogromancy -- the making of enchanted maps. Sebastian, a sly and clever character, once served kings but now he has been reduced to selling his services to bounty hunters.

Executive producers also announced that David de Lautour will have a recurring role on the series, joining previously announced leads Craig Horner (Richard Cypher), Bridget Regan (Kahlan), and Bruce Spence (Zedd); and recurring actors Jay Laga'aia (Chase) and Craig Parker (Darken Rahl). David de Lautour ("What I Like About You" and "Xena: Warrior Princess") portrays Michael Cypher, brother of Richard.

From the talented team behind the long-running, successful series "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess," and the studio that produces primetime network hits including "Lost," "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives," "Ghost Whisperer" and "Army Wives," comes the next generation of action-adventure series. "Legend of the Seeker" follows the extraordinary travels of woodsman Richard Cypher (Craig Horner), who must stop a ruthless tyrant from unleashing an ancient evil and enslaving the world. The series will kick off with a thrilling two-hour premiere event on November 1, 2008.

"Legend of the Seeker" has been cleared by Disney-ABC Domestic Television in 95% of the country to date, including all of the top 50 markets. Production on the 22-episodes is currently underway in New Zealand. The one-hour series is based on Terry Goodkind's epic fantasy series "The Sword of Truth." Goodkind's popular epic fantasy series are international bestsellers that have been translated into over 20 languages.

"Legend of the Seeker" is produced by ABC Studios, marking their first venture into broadcast syndication. Sam Raimi ("Spider-Man," "Spider-Man 2," "Spider-Man 3" and "The Evil Dead"), Rob Tapert ("The Grudge," "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Cleopatra 2525"), Joshua Donen ("The Quick and the Dead"), Ned Nalle (production executive for "Xena: Warrior Princess" and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys") and Kenneth Biller ("Star Trek: Voyager" and "Six Degrees") serve as executive producers.
