MICKY DOLENZ JOINS FELLOW MUSIC ICONS DEBBIE GIBSON AND TIFFANY IN THE CAST OF SYFY SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE MEGA PYTHON VS GATOROID

New York, New York - July 14, 2010 - Micky Dolenz, member of the popular 1960s music group The Monkees, is joining fellow pop icons Debbie Gibson and Tiffany in the cast of the Syfy Saturday Original Movie Mega Python vs Gatoroid, currently filming in Los Angeles.

In the movie, a production of The Asylum, Dolenz portrays a celebrity singer hired by Tiffany for her fundraiser to save the Everglades.

In addition to starring in the hit television series The Monkees for two seasons (along with Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones), Dolenz's career has also included directing for television and theatre. Most recently he appeared in the Rob Zombie remake of Halloween.

In Mega Python Vs Gatoroid, there's a crisis in the Florida Everglades as giant pythons are threatening the alligator population. Gibson portrays a fanatical animal rights advocate who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades where the pythons become mega-sized.

Tiffany plays an over-zealous park ranger worried about the growing ecological damage. To save her beloved alligators, she employs dangerous methods, setting off a war between the species - and putting her on a collision course with Gibson.

In their most recent Syfy roles, Tiffany starred in Mega Piranha, while Gibson starred in Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus.

Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary) is director of Mega Python vs Gatoroid - the first time a woman has directed a Syfy Saturday Original Movie. The writer is Naomi Selfman (Evil Eyes).

Tiffany at age 15 was the youngest female artist to have a #1 debut album. Her global smash hits include, I Think We're Alone Now, Could've Been, I Saw Him Standing There, and All this Time... selling more than 15 million records worldwide. To this day, her groundbreaking "mall tour" sets the precedent to launch young musical careers. Venturing into acting, Tiffany starred as the voice of "Judy Jetson" in Jetsons: The Movie and has appeared in many award winning indie festival films. In 2002 Tiffany graced the cover of Playboy; her pictorial became one of the best selling issues of all time. Her album The Color of Silence was named "one of the finest pop albums of 2000" by Billboard. 2007 marked her return to the Billboard charts with three Dance Hits. Tiffany makes her home in Nashville with her husband and son, and is currently writing and recording her country music debut.

Debbie Gibson began her career at 16 with the hit Only in My Dreams and would go on to sell 16 million albums. She holds the world's record to this day for being the youngest writer/producer/performer of a #1 hit. She went onto star in critically acclaimed Broadway shows such as Les Miserables, Beauty and the Beast, and Cabaret, among others. She originated Sandy in the West End revival of Grease, breaking box office records. She is currently recording a new album and getting ready for her stint guest starring in Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy at MGM/Foxwoods. Gibson also runs her "Electric Youth" summer camp and music programs throughout the year to mentor young aspiring songwriters and performers.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 96 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)

Founded in 1996, The Asylum is a motion picture production, financing and worldwide distribution company. With full production facilities based in Burbank, CA, The Asylum currently produces 12-15 feature films a year for the theatrical, television and home entertainment markets. The Asylum has become one of the world's most outrageous entertainment brands, as evidenced by the viral sensation Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, for which the trailer alone garnered over 2.5 million hits online.
