Subject: Witchblade Fundraiser a Success!

WITCHBLADE FANS UNITE TO RAISE FUNDS TO SUPPORT NEW YORK POLICE & FIRE
WIDOWS' & CHILDREN'S BENEFIT FUND

COLUMBUS, Ohio Fans of the recently cancelled television show Witchblade The Original Series participated in the "11th Precinct Charity Fundraiser" and raised over $2,000 for the New York Police & Fire Widows' &
Children's Benefit Fund.

Named for the fictional 11th Precinct of Witchblade, the fundraiser ran for two weeks and was organized by Witchblade Central Station, a fan-run organization devoted to unifying fans in their campaign to get Witchblade
back on the air. The goal of the fundraiser was twofold: to serve as a show of support and a "thank you" to the cast and crew of Witchblade for their work over the two seasons of the show, and also to recognize the families of the real world police officers and firefighters of New York City.

"Witchblade fans' willingness to give to charity in the name of Witchblade demonstrates fans continued support for the cast and a third season," Witchblade Central Station committee member Jessica Roberts said.

"It was important to us to select a charity that had a connection with Witchblade. Choosing the New York Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund was an easy decision," said Alicia Bennett, Witchblade Central
Station committee member and fundraiser coordinator. "Over two seasons, fans grew to love and care for the characters of Witchblade as they worked within the New York City police system. As fans, we wanted to show our respect and admiration for their real-life counterparts, as well."

Witchblade, based on the Top Cow comic of the same name, consistently earned a 2.0 or better cable rating during its two seasons on TNT, according to information published by several industry trade publications. Witchblade was produced by Top Cow Productions, Halsted Pictures and Mythic
Films in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Viewers are asked to continue to write letters, send postcards, sign an online petition, and e-mail representatives and executives at Warner Bros.
Television on behalf of Witchblade. Details on the campaign and other pertinent information about the 11th Precinct Charity Fundraiser and the continuing campaign to save Witchblade can be found at www.witchbladecentralstation.com. Information about the New York Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund can be found at www.nypfwc.org.
