NCIS Actress Pauley Perrette to Star in "The Girl From Mars"

Perrette to Play the Lead Role in Romantic Sci-Fi Feature

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - The Work Room Productions is proud to announce that Pauley Perrette, star of the top rated CBS television series NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service, will be leading the cast of the science-fiction / romance "The Girl From Mars."

"The Girl From Mars" tells the story of a lonely geek whose life is transformed when he meets the girl of his dreams (Perrette) who claims to be a visitor from another planet.

The film is written and directed by DIY auteur James Felix McKenney, whose previous features include the retro sci-fi flick, "Automatons" and the upcoming "Hypothermia" from Dark Sky films, starring Michael Rooker ("The Walking Dead").

McKenney will be sharing producing chores with Lisa Wisely and Chase Tyler of Brooklyn, NY based The Work Room Productions.

The Director of Photography will be Eric Branco, who lensed both McKenney's "Hypothermia" and "Satan Hates You" for New York-based production company Glass Eye Pix.

Says the director about working with Perrette, "We've wanted to do something with Pauley in the lead for quite a while now. She has such a powerful presence with so much energy and compassion, it's infectious. Writing this part was all about trying to capture that combination of kindness and enthusiasm that makes Pauley so special as a person and distill it all into a character that audiences will really respond to."

Production is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles in May 2011.
