Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland

BURBANK, Calif.--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Feb. 13, 1995--
The age-old question "Is there life out there?" will soon be answered in a new syndicated television special, "Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland," hosted by actor Robert Urich.

Taped on location at Walt Disney World Resort's newly refurbished Tomorrowland area, "Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland" will take viewers on a fascinating trip through the extraterrestrial world, offering proof-positive that alien life forms really do exist.

Expert testimony, photographic evidence, scientific analyses, of close encounters and interviews with ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences with alien beings will build the case for the existence of extraterrestrials in our universe. In addition, through the Freedom of Information Act, the program's producers have uncovered page after page of documentation proving conclusively that we are not alone -- and that our government knows it.

The finale of the show will reveal a close encounter of the Disney kind: a look at Walt Disney World's ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter," a sensory thriller from Disney and George Lucas that allows visitors to experience firsthand a chilling meeting with an alien creature.

Host Robert Urich is best known as the star of such popular series as "Vega$" and "Spenser: For Hire," the latter of which has spun off into a successful series of TV movies. Urich currently hosts TBS' National Geographic "Explorer" and "On Assignment" series, for which he has received Cable Ace and Emmy awards.

Writing, producing and directing "Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland" is Andy Thomas. Thomas' credits include a wide range of investigative reports on topics ranging from terrorism to the Kennedy assassination. He received an Emmy nomination as the original producer of Fox Television's groundbreaking reality series "Cops."

Most recently, Thomas wrote and produced the Cable Ace-nominated "Modern Marvels" series for the Arts & Entertainment Network.

"Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland" will air between Monday, Feb. 27, and Sunday, March 26 (check local listings), and is produced by Thomas & Friends Productions in association with Walt Disney World.
