SYFY GOES INTO PRODUCTION ON SATURDAY ORIGINAL MOVIE The Philadelphia ExperimentTHE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT"

STARS NICHOLAS LEA, MICHAEL PARE, RYAN ROBBINS, GINA HOLDEN, EMILIE ULLERUP AND MALCOLM MCDOWELL

NEW YORK - August 26, 2011 - Syfy is going into production on the Saturday Original Movie The Philadelphia Experiment, featuring a star-studded cast of Nicholas Lea (V, Kyle X-Y), Michael Pare (The Virgin Suicides, Hope Floats), Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Riese), Gina Holden (Saw 3D, Final Destination 3), Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Entourage).

The Philadelphia Experiment - about a deadly hole in the fabric of time -- begins production in Vancouver on August 25 and will premiere on Syfy in 2012.

In The Philadelphia Experiment, a secret government research project tries reviving the World War II "Philadelphia Experiment," which was an attempt to create a cloaking device to render warships invisible. When the experiment succeeds, it brings back the original ship (the Eldridge) that disappeared during the first test in 1943 -- which brings death and destruction to the 21st century. It's up to the sole survivor (Lea) of the first experiment and his granddaughter (Ullerup) to stop it.

McDowell plays the original genius behind the "Philadelphia Experiment," who is now in hiding from the government, while Holden portrays the corporate bigwig running the project, which is led by Robbins, an ambitious scientist. Pare plays the villain Hagan, one of Moore's henchmen.

A production of Cinetel, The Philadelphia Experiment will be directed by Paul Ziller (Polar Storm, Ice Quake) and written by Andy Briggs (Ghost Town, Rise of the Gargoyles).

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 99 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
