NBC's special 3-D episode of Medium, starring Emmy winner Patricia Arquette, will be introduced by the legendary late Twilight Zone host Rod Serling. The episode entitled, "Still Life," will be telecast Monday, Nov. 21. The producers of "Medium" have acquired rights to Serling's footage from "The Twilight Zone" and have digitally manipulated the image with voice artist Mark Silverman.

In traditional black-and-white footage evocative of "The Twilight Zone," Serling will let the audience know what the cue is for them to put on their 3-D glasses (an enhanced image of Arquette's eyeball) and will explain that if they don't have glasses, their viewing experience of the episode will not be altered from the traditional 2-D image.

"The 'Medium' 3-D episode provides a great way for fans to enjoy a heightened perspective of Allison's intriguing visions," said Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

The various opening narrations of the original "The Twilight Zone" featured Serling's voice and always alluded to entering "...a new dimension."

"I first began exploring the possibility of doing a 3-D episode of television over a decade ago when I was working on Moonlighting," said "Medium" executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. "When 'Medium' became successful, I realized that in many ways it was an even better vehicle for 3-D.

"Additionally, technology seems to have finally caught up with me. (Directors) Jim Cameron, Robert Rodriguez and a host of other innovators have pushed the medium (you'll pardon the pun) into the 21st century, and our show and our viewers will be the beneficiaries of that. I think people will be surprised by how vivid and dynamic 3-D has become."

In the 3-D episode "Still Life," Allison (Arquette) comes to realize that there is an added dimension to the way she experiences art. When Allison encounters the work of one artist, disturbing, three-dimensional images emerge that lead her to believe that the man behind these alarming canvasses may have a deadly secret.

Viewers will be able to get the 3-D glasses in this week's TV Guide, which features "Medium" on its cover. In addition, millions of glasses will be distributed by Sprint street teams in major cities throughout the country and at Universal Theme Parks in Hollywood and Orlando.
