I know I am not the only person with an old computer that works great for e-mail but is not so hot for the Web, so here's the info from the scifi channel site..... "SLIDERS" TRANSPORTS TO SCI-FI CHANNEL NEW SEASON OF 22 ORIGINAL EPISODES OF POPULAR SCIENCE FICTION SERIES TO JOIN SCI-FI CHANNEL'S GROWING ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING LINEUP IN JUNE 1998 Network Also Acquires Exclusive Rights To Three Previous Seasons, debuting March 1998 Sci-Fi Channel turns a new page in its history and paves the way for its future with the addition of Sliders, the state-of-the-art science-fiction/adventure series from Universal Television, to its original programming lineup beginning in 1998. Sci-Fi Channel has committed to 22 new, original episodes of the series, and has acquired the exclusive rights to all 48 previously produced hours. The announcement was made today by Rod Perth, President, USA Networks Entertainment. "The commitment to continue production of original episodes of Sliders represents a very bold and significant statement by Sci-Fi Channel," Perth said. "Sliders is a series that offers the highest production values in television, excellent writing and a very talented cast. This series, as well as our development of major long-form projects such as Dune and Invasion Earth, are emblematic of the next plateau in Sci-Fi Channel's evolution. We're delighted to welcome this extraordinary series to the network," he added. Sci-Fi Channel, which celebrates its fifth anniversary in September, has experienced explosive growth with the addition of more than 12 million subscribers (a gain of 40%) since June, 1996. In tandem with this growth, the network will increase its investments in the development and production of original episodic programming fare. Sliders, which debuted on the FOX television network on March 22, 1995, and completed its third season on May 16, follows the adventures of a young team of explorers who "slide" through parallel dimensions of Earth using a timer which opens a sliding vortex. They explore Earth in the current year, taking the alternate route to personal and historic situations. Jerry O'Connell (Jerry Maguire) stars as Quinn Mallory; Sabrina Lloyd (Father Hood) stars as Wade Wells; Cleavant Derricks (Something Wilder) stars as Rembrandt Brown and Kari Wuhrer (Anaconda) stars as Maggie Beckett. Created by Robert K. Weiss and Tracy Torme, Sliders is produced by St. Clare Entertainment in association with Universal Television. ************************************************************************ Gordon W.
