CELEBRATED LONG ISLAND PSYCHIC TRANSCENDS REALITY IN SYFY'S NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, MARY KNOWS BEST

The Hour-Long, Docu-Soap Reality Program Chronicles The Life Of A Psychic Intuitive and Her Family - Production Begins This Spring and Premieres Thursday, July 15 at 9 PM (ET/PT)

New York, New York - March 16, 2010 - Meet Mary Occhino, the matriarch of a proud Long Island Italian-American family who always takes her work home with her because communicating with the spirit world is a 24-hour a day job. Mary Knows Best (working title) gives a whole new meaning to the term "mother is always right." The six-episode one-hour series is produced by Atlas Media Corp and begins production this spring and premieres on Syfy on Thursday, July 15 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

"Mary is not your average psychic," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. "Whether hosting her successful radio show, dealing with her children or just a passerby, her straightforward, no-nonsense demeanor and knack for never knowing when to quit, gives her a unique charm."

Mary Knows Best (working title) chronicles the poignant and often funny situations that Mary and her family get themselves into on a daily basis. A successful author, radio host, psychic intuitive and mother of three, Mary touches the lives of nearly everyone she meets. Her children, Jackie, Chris and Carl are a mismatched group of siblings consisting of a skeptic, a paranormal investigator and a reluctant psychic. In each episode, viewers will be introduced to an unforgettable cast of family characters including Mary's outspoken older brother Charles and two adorable grandchildren.

Mary Occhino is the host of Sirius Satellite Radio's hit daily show, "Angels on Call" which broadcasts weekday mornings from New York City. She predicts the future, speaks to the dead and offers daily advice to thousands of devoted radio fans; giving "Angels on Call" one of the highest call volumes of any Sirius Radio show. An accomplished author, and speaker, Mary conducts seminars nationwide, offering guidance on relationships, health, family issues and career concerns. She also provides closure to those who have lost love ones.
