EPIX SEEING BLACK IN 2012

Lewis Black's In God We Rust Premieres March 17

New York, NY, February 28, 2012 - EPIX, the premium entertainment service available to subscribers on television, video-on-demand, online and consumer electronic devices delivers another high profile original comedy event in March as comedian Lewis Black marks his return to the premium service. The new special follows up his Grammy winning special, Stark Raving Black, which continues to be a top performing original event on EPIX.

Filmed at Minneapolis' historic State Theatre, In God We Rust features Black's inimitable comedy tirades as he jumps up and down and wags his finger at the absurdities of our lives. With topics taken from the front pages, Black leads the audience on a hilarious, cathartic journey from politics to Valentine's Day to Facebook's popular application, Farmville. "People do this, because really, everybody's always dreamed of having a fake farm," says Black.

"Lewis Black connects with our audience," said EPIX President Mark Greenberg, welcoming the return to EPIX of the bestselling author and The Daily Show contributor. "His last special continues to draw heavy viewership on the network, on demand and online. Now, as EPIX expands to Internet connected devices like Xbox, Roku and others, we are providing fans with even more ways to see him."

"I'm thrilled to be back," Lewis Black added. "I don't claim to understand the technology behind EPIX and all the platforms, but I'm thankful that they do. And I've been told by people barely out of diapers that it's actually not complicated."

In God We Rust joins a growing roster of A-list comedy events on EPIX which include "Craig Ferguson: Does This Need to be Said;" "Louis CK: Hilarious" (nominated for two 2011 Emmy awards); "Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story" (nominated for a 2010 Emmy); Lewis Black's "Stark Raving Black" (which received a Grammy nod) and shows featuring David Cross, Seth MacFarlane, Janeane Garofalo and Kevin Smith. Music related events have included exclusive concerts by Britney Spears, Usher, Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas, and Madonna.
