NBC has set a return date for The Event, and has tapped an A-list cinematographer to direct one pivotal episode.

EW has exclusively learned The Event is coming back on Monday, March 7, with a two-hour presentation, followed by Harry’s Law. After that, there’s nine more Event episodes to finish out the show’s first season.

Also, Janusz Kaminski — the Oscar-winning cinematographer behind a score of Steven Spielberg classics as Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List, and War of the Worlds — has been tapped to direct episode 15.

Could No. 15 be when fans finally learn what “The Event” is?

Producers said last year that the title reference will be revealed in the latter half of the first season. Also, they’ve maintained that the season finale will conclude the current storylines in a satisfying manner (a different strategy than, say, ABC’s V, which is going for a cliffhanger).
