A&E NETWORK TO PRESENT 'STEPHEN KING'S BAG OF BONES'

FOUR-HOUR MINI SERIES BASED ON KING'S ICONIC BESTSELLING SUPERNATURAL THRILLER STARRING PIERCE BROSNAN TO PREMIERE FOURTH QUARTER 2011

NEW YORK, NY - July 22, 2011 - A&E Network will begin production next month on "Stephen King's Bag of Bones," a four-hour epic mini-series thrill-ride based on the New York Times number one bestselling novel, featuring Pierce Brosnan's return to television. The two-night event from Sony Pictures Television is scheduled to premiere in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"Bag of Bones" will also star Anabeth Gish, with additional cast to be announced shortly. Mick Garris is set to direct the Matt Venne penned script, based on The New York Times #1 bestseller by Stephen King. Filming will take place in Nova Scotia, Canada.

"Bag of Bones" is the story of grief and lost love's enduring bonds, an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire and a new love haunted by past secrets. Bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, played by Pierce Brosnan, is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo. A dream inspires him to return to the couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine where he becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child's enormously wealthy grandfather, the mysterious ghostly visitations, the ever-escalating nightmares and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.

"Bag of Bones" is produced by Sony Pictures Television for A&E. Executive producers are Mark Sennett for Mark Sennet Entertainment, Inc., Mick Garris for Nice Guy Productions, Inc., Stewart Mackinnon for Headline Pictures Limited and Craig Sheftell. Brian Gary and David Davoli are the co-executive producers.
