VIEWERS' FAVORITE GENIE IN A BOTTLE RETURNS WHEN "I DREAM OF JEANNIE" JOINS TV LAND'S SCHEDULE BEGINNING OCTOBER 23, 2010

New York, NY, October 22nd , 2010 - TV Land welcomes back one of the most beloved TV characters of all time when "I Dream of Jeannie" returns to the network with a weekend marathon on Saturday October 23rd from 9AM- 9PM ET/PT and Sunday October 24th from 9AM - 8PM ET/PT. The marathon features unforgettable episodes such as when Jeannie (Barbara Eden) and astronaut Captain Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman) first meet, when Jeannie remembers she is invisible in photos and scrambles to find a solution for this on her wedding day and when she tries to help Tony prepare for a celebration for Captain Peterson and duplicates a special guest - Sammy Davis Jr. Throughout the course of the series, Jeannie's powers, hilarious blunders and outlandish schemes were so endearing that they eventually turned this duo from genie and master into husband and wife. "I Dream of Jeannie" will air in its regularly scheduled timeslot of Monday-Friday 10AM -11AM ET/PT and Saturday and Sunday 12PM-2PM ET/PT.

Inspired by the successful classic sitcom "Bewitched," "I Dream of Jeannie" aired from 1965-1970 on NBC and made actors Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman and Bill Daily household names. The series begins when astronaut Tony Nelson's (Hagman) space mission is aborted and he parachutes onto a deserted island. While waiting to be rescued, he notices a strange-looking bottle that has washed ashore. When he opens it, in a puff of smoke out pops a genie named Jeannie (Eden) Jeannie gets him back to civilization safely, goes along for the ride and the two return to his home in Florida. Delighted to revel in her freedom and her handsome "master," Jeannie becomes Tony's constant companion. Though she capably and willingly grants her master every wish with the blink of an eye and a nod of the head, she causes more than her fair share of trouble because she pops up in all the wrong places and at all the wrong times. The base psychiatrist, Dr. Alfred Bellows (Hayden Rorke) is convinced that Tony is suffering from delusions. Only his best friend, girl-crazy fellow astronaut Roger Healy (Bill Daily) realizes that Jeannie really exists and has magical powers. In the final seasons, Tony finally realizes he loves Jeannie and decides to marry her.
