Cosmos Studios, MPH Entertainment and the A&E Network announce capture of major scientific discovery on film

Discovery of new genus of dinosaur second most massive ever to walk the earth to be presented in 'The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt' documentary to be broadcast on A&E

LOS ANGELES, CA., JUNE 1, 2001 Cosmos Studios announced that the dramatic discovery, revealed today in the pages of the prestigious journal, Science, of "Paralititan stromeri," a newly discovered genus of dinosaur estimated to be 80-100 feet long and potentially weighing as much as 70 tons, was captured on film in MPH Entertainments production of "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt" to be aired this fall on the A&E Network.

In early 2000, a team of young scientists, led by 30-year-old Ph.D. candidate Josh Smith of the University of Pennsylvania, headed for the remote western desert of Egypt in search of German paleontologist Ernst Stromers (1870-1952) fabled lost dinosaurs. MPH provided seed money for the dig. Cosmos Studios financed the seven-week expedition and MPHs high definition feature-length documentary. Cosmos Studios intends to theatrically distribute the two-hour film prior to its premiere television broadcast on A&E. Recently, A&E and Cosmos Studios signed an exclusive and extensive marketing and programming co-development and co-production relationship with Cosmos Studios. The relationship will feature a wide range of consumer and educational media offerings, as well as groundbreaking and informative television specials for the Network. "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt" is the first of four specials and will air on A&E in the fourth quarter of 2001. "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt" is also the first in a series of collaborations between Cosmos Studios and MPH.

"When Cosmos Studios President Kent Gibson brought this project to us, it seemed to embody everything we hope Cosmos Studios will come to signify," said CEO, Ann Druyan. "A gripping Indian Jones-style adventure story in which a major scientific discovery unfolds before your very eyes. MP
