NEW YORK — USA Network and its production partner on hit series “The 4400,” CBS Paramount Network TV, have produced a 60-minute recap episode of the show’s first two seasons and will premiere it as a streaming video on Yahoo! TV.
“The 4400 Special: Unlocking the Secrets” will bow online a week before it plays on USA and its cable siblings Bravo and the Sci Fi Channel in primetime on June 4. Also in advance of the episode’s cablecast, usanetwork.com and scifi.com will carry a streaming video of the hour.
The broadband Web sites will offer the episode free, sans the commercials that will be a part of the USA, Bravo and Sci Fi runs.
The new seasonkicks off on USA June 11.
Drawing on the expertise of Glow Interactive, USA will expand its Web site to offer “4400”-related material such as audio podcasts, weekly character blogs, weekly writer-producer blogs, behind-the-scenes interviews, character backstories and preview clips.
