SCI FI'S SANCTUARY BEGINS PRODUCTION ON SEASON 2

Agam Darshi Joins Cast as Kate Freelander

NEW YORK - April 6, 2009 � SCI FI's groundbreaking hit original series Sanctuary, the first TV show based on an online series to be picked up for a second season, began production last week in Vancouver. Slated to return this fall, the one-hour drama's 13-episode second season will include the addition of Agam Darshi as Kate Freelander.

Witty and sarcastic with a gift for persuasion, Kate Freelander is a swindler, con artist and thief who finds herself in an uneasy alliance with Dr. Magnus after her business relationship with the Cabal goes sour. Agam has appeared in such television programs as The L-Word, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, Dead Zone, Stargate Atlantis, CTV's Custody and the Lifetime Original Movie The Haunting on Sorority Row. Her feature film credits include Final Destination 3, Snakes on a Plane, and in this fall's highly anticipated 2012 from director Roland Emmerich.

For its first season, Sanctuary delivered a 1.9 HH rating 2.43 million total viewers including 1.42 million Adults 25-54 and 1.08 Adults 18-49. More than 3 million viewers tuned in to the premiere of Sanctuary on October 3, 2008 making it the highest rated original series premiere and the best performance for a first-season SCI FI scripted original series since Eureka's first season in 2006.

Sanctuary follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), a brilliant scientist who holds the secrets of a clandestine population � a group of strange and sometimes terrifying beings that hide among humans. Along with forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), they seek to protect these threatened phenomena as well as unlock the mysteries behind their existence. Sanctuary blazes the television landscape by shooting almost entirely on green screen and is the first television series in North America to use the RED camera exclusively.

In January 2009, Sanctuary bested all top broadcast TV shows in Marketing Evalutions' Q Scores, which measure the viewer's emotional bonding to a TV show. With a 100 index being average, Sanctuary came in second only to Showtime's critically acclaimed series Dexter (174) among females 18-49 with a score of 171.

Created by Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis), Sanctuary is produced in association with SCI FI Channel and Tricon Films and Television. Season 2 of the series will be executive produced by Damian Kindler, Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood with Andrea Gorfolova, Carrie Mudd and Keith Beedie.

SCI FI Channel is a television network that fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com). Launched in 1992, and currently in 95 million homes, SCI FI Channel is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. SCI FI becomes Syfy on July 7, 2009.
