Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2005 -- Alias, starring Jennifer Garner (Daredevil, Catch Me If You Can) as Sydney Bristow, features some of the most stylish and (dare we say) sexy action scenes on television. Now finishing its third season, the show has gained traction and a greater following in its Wednesday night slot, prompting ABC to renew Garner and the cast through 2008. Alias is the creation of Jeffrey Abrams, who is also the co-creator and executive producer of this year’s break-out ABC hit show Lost.

Alias takes us inside the U.S. Intelligence structure where Sydney works for what she believes to be a branch of the CIA known as SD6 – a role that she must keep secret to protect herself and her loved ones. With so many plot twists and turns, it’s no wonder TV critic Gillian Flynn calls the show “a Rubic’s Cube of a drama.”

Alias won the People’s Choice Award for favorite New Drama, was nominated for a Golden Globe as best drama series, and received an outstanding 11 Emmy nominations in its freshman season.

The show’s production design, costumes and cinematography are all first-rate, especially with Directors of Photography Michael Bonvillian and Don Thorin, Jr. at the helm. Both Bonvillian and Thorin use Cooke S4 Prime lenses to shoot the varied locations and scenic tapestries of the show – from dark, underground torture chambers in a foreign land, to bright, sunny and colorful “faux America” in the hinterlands of Russia where foreign spies are trained to pass as typical Americans in a Stepfordian twist. Whatever the mood or tone the script or director calls for, Cooke lenses deliver the sharp, clear images with nuanced subtleties that help to make this fast-paced action/adventure drama series a visual treat.
