LIFETIME'S DRAMA "ARMY WIVES" CONCLUDES HISTORIC RUN

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 24, 2013) - Army Wives, Lifetime's longest-running series, will not return after recently wrapping its historic seven-season run on the network. To honor the ABC Studios-produced series, Lifetime is planning a two-hour retrospective special with cast members that will air early next year.

Regarding the announcement, Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, said, "There is no denying how special Army Wives has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape. By taking on a very relevant and timely issue, it has brilliantly captured the challenges our military families endure and the bravery they and their loved ones display while serving our country."

He added, "It has been an honor to be the home of Army Wives. We also want to thank Army Wives' passionate legion of fans and everyone involved with the series: ABC Studios, Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin, Tanya Biank, every single cast member, as well as the crew and community of Charleston, South Carolina. Without their dedication, effort and loyalty, Army Wives' seven wonderful seasons would not have been possible; and for that we are very grateful."

Army Wives, which follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women living with their spouses and families on an active Army post, has starred Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Wendy Davis, Brigid Brannagh, Kelli Williams, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Brooke Shields, Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto, Elle McLemore, Jesse McCartney, Terry Serpico, Drew Fuller, Alyssa Diaz, J.J. Soria, Joshua Henry and Burgess Jenkins, among others. Produced by ABC Studios, with Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin executive producing, it is based on the book Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives by Tanya Biank, who served as a consultant. The series was created by Katherine Fugate.

The drama has received numerous accolades, including two Gracie Awards from the Alliance for Women in Media, a Sentinel for Health Award from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism's Norman Lear Center, as well as numerous NAACP Image Award, NAMIC Award and Prism Award nominations, to name a few.
