TNT and Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. Announce Worldwide Launch of Epic Alien Invasion Series "FALLING SKIES," Debuting in More Than 75 Countries

Eagerly Anticipated Series Starring Noah Wyle, from DreamWorks Television, TNT Productions and Executive Producer Steven Spielberg, Set to Premiere in United States June 19, Followed by International Launches this Summer

TNT and Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. have teamed for the global premiere of FALLING SKIES, the much-anticipated new drama series from DreamWorks Television, TNT Productions and executive producer Steven Spielberg, starring Noah Wyle. This summer, FALLING SKIES will be available in more than 180million homes worldwide, beginning with the series premiere June 19 in the United States on TNT.

Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. holds most worldwide rights to FALLING SKIES. The series will air on TNT networks in several international markets. In other areas, FALLING SKIES has been licensed to networks that include Fox, Super Channel and Canal+. Warner Bros. International Television holds licensing rights for Canada.

"The launch of FALLING SKIES promises to be a global television event," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. "We're excited that people around the world will be able to experience this great new series."

"The FALLING SKIES project is a great example of the creative and business collaboration at work across Turner Broadcasting and with our partners," said Louise Sams, president of Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. "It also demonstrates the increasing power of Turner's platforms worldwide to create global scope and scale for signature programming events."

The series will be seen in more than 75 countries and markets, including Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Canada, South Korea and the United Kingdom. More markets will be added in the weeks and months ahead.

FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery.

FALLING SKIES stars Noah Wyle (ER), Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation), Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT's Into the West) and Drew Roy (Secretariat). FALLING SKIES is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, along with DreamWorks Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, Graham Yost (Justified, The Pacific) and screenwriter Robert Rodat. Rodat, who earned an Oscar(R) nomination for his screenplay for Saving Private Ryan, wrote the pilot from an idea he co-conceived with Spielberg. Mark Verheiden (Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) and Greg Beeman (Heroes, Smallville) are co-executive producers.
