(August 21, 2001 - Glendale, CA) - Ninety seconds of powerful, unnerving footage from the TNT hit series “Witchblade” will be available as an Internet-only presentation exclusively at www.warnerbros.com on August 21. Fans of the TNT hit series, which has delivered solid ratings and has been seen by nearly 35 million viewers so far this summer, can view the never-before-seen footage from the series' first season. The footage offers an even deeper look into the power of the Witchblade and its lineage. “Witchblade” is produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc. and Halsted Pictures in association with Warner Bros. Television. "Witchblade" is the story of a New York detective, Sara Pezzini (Yancy Butler), whose search for justice has brought her into contact with an ancient, intelligent, living weapon so powerful it can battle Earth's darkest evil forces. The series also stars David Chokachi, who portrays detective Jake McCartey. Anthony Cistaro stars as Kenneth Irons, a billionaire obsessed with possessing the Witchblade and Eric Etebari stars as Ian Nottingham, Iron's enigmatic henchman. Will Yun Lee stars as Pezzini's slain partner turned guardian-spirit, Danny Woo. The season finale airs tonight, Tuesday, Aug. 21, at 9 p.m. in an episode that promises to shock viewers when Sara’s unlikely protector surfaces with a life-threatening passion to watch over her that leads to irrevocable consequences. Sara has no choice but to accept the destiny that comes with wielding the gauntlet and use it to regain what she has lost. But every gain has its price. True to the words of the Witchblade’s past wielders, “Nothing is as it seems.” A startling discovery about Dante and his team of corrupt cops lead to a suspenseful showdown between the rising warrior and a band of enemies that she must conquer before her father’s killer is revealed. Following the season finale on Tuesday, August 21, TNT will present a back-to-back WITCHBLADE season run on Sunday, August 26, beginning at 10 a.m. The back-to-back block will feature the two-hour TNT Original that launched the hit series, followed by episodes 1-11.
