he widest possible audience in ground-breaking scientific research. MPH Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based film and television company that has produced more than 125 hours of primetime television programming, also provided seed money for the expedition.
Cosmos Studios has financed an MPH-produced feature-length documentary on the dig in the Bahariya Oasis. The documentary, titled "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt," will be first in an upcoming series of two-hour science-based entertainment specials broadcast on A&E Network. Cosmos Studios also intends to theatrically distribute the film prior to its television premiere.
