JASON PRIESTLEY CHARMS SYFY'S POPULAR SERIES "HAVEN" - JOINS CAST IN RECURRING ROLE BEGINNING FRIDAY, AUGUST 5 AT 10PM

NEW YORK - August 1, 2011 - Jason Priestley (who stars in, directs and is a producer on the international hit dark comedy Call Me Fitz) will guest star in four episodes of Syfy's popular series Haven, as well as direct the September 9 program.

Priestley, who leaped to stardom in Beverly Hills, 90210, will appear in the August 5, August 12, August 19 and September 9 episodes at 10PM (ET/PT).

In Haven, Priestley plays Chris Weekly, a handsome but anti-social marine biologist who is forced to deal with an affliction most would consider a blessing -- everyone suddenly loves him and will do anything he wants. Only Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) seems unaffected by Weekly's "charms."

Haven also co-stars Eric Balfour as Duke Crocker.

Haven is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King and is currently in production in Nova Scotia. The Syfy original series from leading independent producer Entertainment One is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

The creative team behind Haven includes Executive Producers John Morayniss (Hung, Goodnight for Justice) and Noreen Halpern (Call Me Fitz, Rookie Blue) from eOne Television, and David MacLeod (Legends of the Fall, The Ray Bradbury Theater) of Big Motion Pictures, who are joined by Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller, Scott Shepherd (Stephen King's The Dead Zone) and Matt McGuiness (Journeyman) as well as Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn (Stephen King's The Dead Zone), who also developed the series.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the U.S., Showcase in Canada and internationally on UNI's multiple Syfy Universal channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series and concluded a deal with Germany's Tele M´┐Żnchen Group (TMG) for the television rights in Continental Europe.
