PRODUCTION COMMENCES ON THREE NEW FOUR-HOUR TELEVISION MINI-SERIES

"Ring of Fire," "Eve of Destruction" and "Delete" Are Part of Sonar Entertainment's New Five Original Mini-Series Disaster Pack Collection

NEW YORK, July 30, 2012 - Principal photography has begun on three new epic four-hour mini-series events for television. The three, Ring of Fire, Eve of Destruction and Delete, have all begun production in Vancouver. Ring of Fire and Eve of Destruction are from Reunion Pictures. Delete is from Brightlight Pictures. The titles are part of Sonar Entertainment's new Disaster Pack collection of five original mini-series to be available for distribution by Sonar later this year.

The earth rocks in Ring of Fire, a terrifying and all too plausible end-of-the-world warning, starring Michael Vartan (Alias), Lauren Lee Smith (CSI), Terry O'Quinn (Lost) and Agam Darshi (Dead Zone). When an oil rig causes a volcanic eruption in a small town, it's just the first in a trigger effect called the Ring of Fire that stretches across the globe. If these cataclysmic series of eruptions cannot be stopped, the earth will be swallowed whole, leading to an extinction level event. Ring of Fire is directed by Paul Shapiro (Smallville) and written by Michael Vickerman (Impact).

Steven Weber (Wings), Christina Cox (Blood Ties) and Treat Williams (Everwood) star in Eve of Destruction. When two scientists attempt to discover unlimited energy, their experiment is hijacked and sabotaged by eco-terrorists. The result is a dark energy black hole that could destroy the planet. Eve of Destruction is directed by Rob Lieberman (Earthsea) and written by Richard Beattie (True Justice).

Delete imagines a disaster in our all-too-fragile digital world where the web becomes dangerously self-aware with one systematic purpose - to destroy mankind. Faced with possible extinction, there is only one way out - create a second artificial intelligence, just as alive, just as intelligent and just as dangerous. Delete stars Keir Gilchrist (United States of Tara), Matt Frewer (Watchman, Max Headroom), Janet Kidder (The Killing), Erin Karpluk (Being Erica), Gil Bellows (Ally McBeal) and Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary). Emmy nominee Steve Barron (Merlin, Treasure Island) directs from an original screenplay by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (Stargate SG-1).
