"Dead Air" to Go 'Live' in Halloween Release

VAN NUYS, CA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Public Media Works, Inc. (OTCBB: PUBM), a film, music and television entertainment and digital media company, announced today that it has completed filming of "Dead Air" and has scheduled it for an October release, just in time for Halloween 2008.

"'Dead Air' is a very hot project having received a lot of great press," opined Public Film Works President, actor and director Corbin Bernsen, who directed the film. "The film was produced in partnership with Antibody Films who now has it ready for post-production, so the entire team is more excited than ever about it. We have scheduled it for release in October 2008 just in time for scare season."

At the center of this politically charged tale is Logan Burnhardt the ego-king of the airwaves, but his unflappable persona is put to the test when a terrorist bio-attack unleashes a plague of flesh-ripping maniacs on Los Angeles. He experiences the horror first-hand as their normally wacked-out callers bombard the station with news of this very real horror spreading around them. How they come to discover the reality of the toxic invasion and ultimately choose to deal with it becomes the focus of "DEAD AIR," which is just as much a character study as it is a horror film.

"Dead Air" (www.deadair-movie.com) is directed by Corbin Bernsen and stars Bill Moseley ("House of 1000 Corpses," "The Devil's Rejects," 2007's "Halloween") and Patricia Tallman ("Babylon 5"). The film is being produced by Jesse Lawler and Chris Aronoff of Antibody Films (www.antibodyfilms.com). "Directing such quality actors was a lot of fun and working with Antibody Films is always a great experience. Jesse and Chris are a very talented couple of guys whose work is garnering a lot of attention," concluded Bernsen.
