CHATSWORTH, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- June 28, 2004 -- Stunning CG Graphics and Scorching Soundtrack Will Air on MTV2 in Support of DVD and CD Release

Image Entertainment, Inc. (Nasdaq:DISK), a leading licensee and distributor of DVD programming in North America, proudly announces that it has inked a deal with MTV Networks, the world's most-watched television network, to broadcast Image's cyber-punk Japanese anime, GALERIANS: RION, on MTV2. GALERIANS: RION world broadcast premiere is scheduled for July 3, 2004, and will coincide with MTV2's anime festival.

Martin W. Greenwald, Image's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I'm very pleased to follow-up the successful DVD and CD release of GALERIANS: RION with a world broadcast premiere on MTV2. With its unprecedented alternate score and soundtrack featuring gold and platinum-selling industrial rock artists such as Slipknot, Fear Factory, The Ataris, Sevendust and more, MTV and MTV2 are the ideal broadcast partners for GALERIANS: RION."

In GALERIANS: RION, Earth's population has been enslaved by Dorothy, a genocidal computer. Only a viral program developed by her creator can emancipate the human race, and only one of Dorothy's own super-powered Galerians holds the key to unlocking the code and destroying the human who carries it. Rion is dispatched to find his childhood friend, Lilia, daughter of Dorothy's creator. As he uncovers the truth about himself and his origins, he is forced to battle not only the Galerians -- but himself!
