AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL LENDS SUPPORT TO THEME OF SOCIAL AND MORAL RESPONSIBILITY ON THE SENTINEL -- October 31

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31 -- This Episode Marks New Time Slot for Successful Action Drama

To help spread awareness for Amnesty International, the respected worldwide organization that campaigns for a universal declaration of human rights, Paramount Network Television's The Sentinel will address the issue of human rights abuse in a special episode entitled Fool Me Twice, airing Wednesday, November 5 in its new time slot of 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on UPN.20

Jim Salutes "Amnesty International is delighted to support and commend The Sentinel, and its episode, Fool Me Twice. We appreciate the attention the episode calls to the plight of prisoners of conscience around the world and the message it sends to human rights abusers," said Dr. William F. Schulz, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA. "Hundreds of thousands of men, women and children are imprisoned, tortured or executed each year because they voice their beliefs. This episode of The Sentinel reinforces the critical message that governments must respect, protect and promote the rightsof all people."

"We are happy to reinforce, through the powerful medium of television, the Amnesty International message of the fundamental human right to self determination," says Paul DeMeo, Executive Producer of The Sentinel.

Fool Me Twice, finds the fictional town of Cascade the setting for an Amnesty International Peace Conference. Detective Jim Ellison (Richard Burgi) and Blair Sandburg (Garett Maggart) become enmeshed in an assassination plot directed by Feliz Lemec (Clifton Davis of Amen fame), the President of St. Germaine, a politically unstable Caribbean country, against his fellow citizen, the internationally admired human rights activist, Genevieve Benet (Kira Arne). During a ceremony where Benet is to receive an Amnesty International humanitarian award, she plans to expose, with photographic evidence, Lemec and his government as bloody violators of human rights. Tension mounts as Ellison and Blair must protect Benet from the deadly behind-the-scenes maneuverings of Lemec, who has learned of Benet's plan to inform the world of his atrocities.

The Sentinel is a Pet Fly Production in association with Paramount Network Television. The Paramount Television Group is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc.
