ALL-STAR CAST ALSO INCLUDES MELISSA GEORGE, ANNABETH GISH, ANIKA NONI ROSE, WILLIAM SCHALLERT, JASON PRIESTLEY AND CAITLIN CARMICHAEL

NEW YORK, NY - October 24, 2011 - A&E Network presents "Stephen King's Bag of Bones," a four-hour epic miniseries based on The New York Times #1 bestselling novel, and featuring Pierce Brosnan's return to television. The two-night event from Sony Pictures Television premieres on Sunday, December 11 and concludes on Monday, December 12, airing at 9PM ET/PT on both nights.

"Bag of Bones" is a ghost story of grief and lost love's enduring bonds, about an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire and a new love haunted by past secrets. Melissa George ("In Treatment"), Annabeth Gish ("Brotherhood"), Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls), William Schallert ("The Patty Duke Show"), Jason Priestley ("Beverly Hills, 90210") and Caitlin Carmichael ("True Blood") also star.

In "Bag of Bones," bestselling novelist Mike Noonan (Brosnan) is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo (Gish). Suffering from writer's block, a dream inspires him to return to the couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine. While there, Mike befriends an attractive young widow, Mattie (George) and her daughter Kyra (Carmichael), and becomes involved in a custody battle with the child's enormously wealthy grandfather, Max (Schallert). Though his ability to write suddenly returns, Mike is plagued by ever-escalating nightmares and mysterious ghostly visitations from Sara Tidwell (Rose), a blues singer whose spirit lingers in the house. As he is haunted by the many secrets at the lake, Mike comes to realize 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 Sennet for Mark Sennet Entertainment, Inc., Mick Garris for Nice Guy Productions, Inc. and Stewart Mackinnon for Headline Pictures Limited. Brian Gary and David Davoli are the co-executive producers. Mick Garris directed the Matt Venne penned script, based on The New York Times #1 bestseller by Stephen King.
