A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL DRAMA SERIES 'LONGMIRE' JUNE 3 AT 10 PM ET/PT STARRING ROBERT TAYLOR, KATEE SACKHOFF, LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS AND BAILEY CHASE

'LONGMIRE' TO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW THIRD SEASON PREMIERE OF HIT DRAMA SERIES 'THE GLADES' AT 9 ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY -- April 27, 2012 -- A&E Network will premiere the new original scripted drama series, "Longmire" on Sunday, June 3 at 10 PM ET/PT immediately following the third season premiere of the returning hit drama "The Glades" at 9 PM ET/PT.

"Longmire," a contemporary crime thriller set in Big Sky country, is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson. The series stars Australian actor Robert Taylor (The Matrix) as Walt Longmire, the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming, along with Katee Sackhoff ("Battlestar Galactica"), Lou Diamond Phillips ("Numb3rs"), Bailey Chase ("Damages"), Cassidy Freeman ("Smallville") and newcomer Adam Bartley. The premiere season will feature ten one-hour episodes.

Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair who buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady (Freeman), Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic (Sackhoff), a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election. When Branch (Chase), an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Worn, but not worn out, Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear (Phillips) for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional lives, one step at a time.

In Season three of "The Glades," Callie (Kiele Sanchez) decides to stay in Palm Glade to make it work with Jim (Matt Passmore). However, when she finds jobs in the area to be scarce, their relationship is put to the test as she considers relocating for work. Meanwhile, the station gets shaken up when the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) sends Jennifer Starke (Taylor Cole), the beautiful, dynamic FDLE bureau chief, to evaluate the station's successful track record in hopes to recreate its high arrest rate state-wide. It soon becomes clear that the success is largely due to Longworth's unorthodox style of investigation. In order to accomplish her goal, the bureau chief decides to take a more hands on approach in her evaluation, creating an interesting tension between the striking bureau chief and the lone wolf Detective Longworth.

In the season premiere, when Jim and Carlos (Carlos Gomez) investigate the death of a millionaire who bequeathed all his wealth to an organization of UFO enthusiasts, the organization's leader accuses the police of covering up the true cause of death: an alien abduction. Meanwhile, Jim and Callie's (Kiele Sanchez) relationship heats up, but Callie's job search to keep her in Palm Glade falters.

"Longmire" is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin ("The Closer," "Trust Me") and John Coveny ("The Closer," "Trust Me") wrote the pilot and serve as executive producers along with Greer Shephard ("The Closer," "Nip/Tuck") and Michael M. Robin ("The Closer," "Nip/Tuck"). Christopher Chulack ("Southland," "ER") served as director and executive producer of the pilot.

"The Glades" is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producers are Clifton Campbell ("White Collar," "Profiler," "21 Jump Street") for Innuendo Productions, Inc. and Gary Randall ("Saving Grace") for Grand Productions, Inc. The series is created by Clifton Campbell.

Pecos Memories ::

To The Wonderful People of Pecos, I had the fortunate experience of meeting some of your residents during a less-than-fortunate incident. I was traveling from Lake Havasu City, AZ to Pueblo CO to deliver a boat I had sold to a man in Denver. My boat is not a 16 or 18 footer it is 36 foot long. After filling my truck at one of your gas stations I was in a hurry to get back on the road. Thinking I was headed in the wrong direction I made a quick and not-so-well-thought-out turn. Or should I say attempt at a turn. My turn left me with the trailer high centered blocking the entire street. My anxiety shot up as I began to grasp for ways out of an almost impossible one-man situation. But within minutes, perhaps seconds, there were five or six gentleman there to help - and if I had enlisted the help of all that asked if they could help there would have been about 20 or 30. After a little contemplation by all of us one gentleman told me he would be right back with a piece of equipment. In just a few minutes he returned with a backhoe and in a short while the boat was back on the street and hooked up to my truck. Was I ever relieved. I asked for a business card from the gentleman with the backhoe in order to send him something, but he said, "no problem". I cannot tell you enough how much that experience meant to me. It may seem like a relatively minor happening but it was a wonderful reminder that there are many, many good people in this country - and many of them live in Pecos! If you have a way to get this message to the folks of Pecos it would be appreciated. I want to thank all of you who helped and all of you who offered to help. I will always visit your town on my journeys to Colorado. You have a wonderful community and your people are what make it so. Thank you. Scott Mathews
