New York, NY (September 19, 2005) - Central Park Media today announced an online contest letting fans cast the lead roles in CPM's upcoming release of the anime cult hit Outlanders. As this has been an often requested title, CPM wanted to make a DVD that will truly satisfy the fans and is giving anime fans everywhere a voice in the creation of this release.

Central Park Media has assembled a pool of some of the industry's best talent and, to get a part, they'll all be competing for votes! Initial information about Outlanders and CPM's fan-casting contest can be found at www.centralparkmedia.com/outlanders. Beginning on September 23, the site will be updated with the video auditions for all of Outlanders's main parts. After watching the videos, fans will be able to vote for their favorite actors and actresses throughout the week. Voting closes as of 11:59 PM EST on September 28th, and recording will begin soon thereafter.

Fans are encouraged to vote early and vote often. Voting is free and no registration is required. All those who include their e-mail address with their vote will automatically be entered into a special drawing to win one of five copies of the Outlanders DVD.

In addition, the Outlanders website will be periodically updated with new information and one-by-one the winners of the casting contest will be revealed in a series of behind-the-scenes online video profiles – all leading up to the Outlanders DVD release on February 7, 2006.

About Outlanders:
As an unknown alien force invades Earth, a photojournalist encounters a fierce (and scantily clad) intergalactic princess. He's quickly knocked unconscious, only to awaken in orbit to be poked, prodded, and ultimately married off to her. Will the photographer survive the wedding night? If he has the energy, will he be able to save the Earth?
