SHOWTIME(R) LAUNCHES NEW ALTERNATE REALITY GAME IN SUPPORT OF THE SECOND SEASON OF "HOMELAND"

For Devoted HOMELAND Fans, ItHitsHome.com Bridges The Gap Between Seasons One and Two

NEW YORK - August 29, 2012 - SHOWTIME has launched a new Digital Media campaign in support of the season two premiere of its Golden Globe(R)-winning and Emmy(R) Award nominated hit series HOMELAND, available now on ItHitsHome.com. With this alternate reality journey, fans of the series will be able to bridge the gap between seasons one and two, with a site set inside the world of HOMELAND, complete with the twists and narrative turns that the show's viewers have come to expect. New portals will be unveiled every week, until the series returns to SHOWTIME for a second season on Sunday, September 30th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

ItHitsHome.com picks up where viewers left off at the end of HOMELAND season one - with Carrie Mathison on a hospital bed, about to undergo her first round of electroconvulsive therapy. Fans are then given a special mission directly from Carrie - by digging deeper into the characters and their activities introduced in the first season, viewers are able to prevent a new incident. Through a series of video and audio artifacts, documents, and unique interactive events, fans will have a chance to surveil a travel agency in real-time, interrogate a prisoner, and finally gather the evidence needed to thwart the enemy.

The featured portals on ItHitsHome.com include:

- Carrie's Wall - An interactive vision of the evidence wall assembled by Carrie Mathison throughout season one, the wall is essentially a virtual scavenger hunt. Players will be tasked with searching through this wall for clues that ultimately reveal new secrets behind Carrie's passionate pursuit of Abu Nazir.

- Saul's Files - where viewers will get access to documents on Saul Berenson's computer. Players must enter the virtual laptop containing secret CIA files only Saul has access to and assemble them in a cohesive manner to unlock the next portal.

- Dana's Blog - Sgt. Nicholas Brody's 16-year-old daughter Dana posts thoughts about her life, which include a great deal about her family and her enigmatic father. The blog will give fans a look inside the entire Brody family, through Dana's perspective.

Developed for American television by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and based on the original Israeli series "Prisoners of War" by Gideon Raff, HOMELAND stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Damian Lewis, and Emmy and Tony(R) Award winner Mandy Patinkin. The one-hour drama series tells the story of Carrie Mathison (Danes), a CIA officer battling her own demons, who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of U.S. soldier Nicholas Brody (Lewis) was a setup and may be connected to an Al Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. As we begin season two, Carrie is no longer with the Agency. The disgraced ex-officer is on the slow path to recovery, after her manic flight in season one nearly crashed Brody's political career. It's this fragile new existence that Carrie's former colleagues Saul Berenson (Patinkin) and David Estes (David Harewood) threaten to shatter, when they come to her door asking for help. Meanwhile, Brody is several months into his inaugural term as a freshman Congressman, and finds himself buffeted daily by competing agendas. With every lie he tells, the walls around him close in a little tighter, threatening to bring him down, along with his family and everything they've achieved since his return.

The series also stars Morena Baccarin, Diego Klattenhoff, Jackson Pace, Morgan Saylor, Jamey Sheridan, David Marciano and Navid Negahban. Season two guest stars include Rupert Friend and Zuleikha Robinson. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the executive producers for season two are Gideon Raff, Michael Cuesta, Alex Cary, Chip Johannessen, Henry Bromell, Meredith Stiehm, Avi Nir and Ran Telem. The series is produced by FOX 21.
