To the outside world, Staten Island is best known for its landfills, colorful locals and the fact that Paris Hilton shot an episode of the Simple Life there. But natives know another story.

Oxygen Network Announces New Reality TV Model Show THE JANICE DICKINSON PROJECT

Oxygen Picks-Up 10-Episode Reality Series That Follows Notorious Model, Janice Dickinson, As She Starts Her Own Agency

Get ready to see a side of one of America´s first supermodels that no one´s seen before in THE JANICE DICKINSON PROJECT (Working Title), a reality series that follows Janice Dickinson (AMERICA´S NEXT TOP MODEL) as she makes the transformation from model to mogul by starting her own Hollywood modeling agency. The series is scheduled to debut Spring 2006.

The 10-episode series from Krasnow Productions and FremantleMedia North America offers viewers an intimate view into Dickinson´s life as she tackles the grueling work of starting her own business and teaching a new generation of aspiring models the business from the ground up. Viewers watch as Dickinson juggles motherhood, champions her new models, and tries to run a profitable agency - all while dealing with skepticism from the industry she helped to define. The show goes beyond Dickinson´s runway persona to show a woman on the verge of a new phase in her career and determined to redefine American beauty.

"We love Janice because she´s the quintessential Oxygen personality. She´s outrageous, in command and bigger than life. And there´s nothing one note about her. She´s a real person with dimension to her character. In this series we see a warm side of her with heart. We also see that she´s a true expert in her field," says Debby Beece, Oxygen President of Programming. "She´s starting a new business with all its challenges, while trying to be a good mom and guide new models through a tough business. It´s a balancing act for her - and it´s fascinating to watch her as she goes through it."

Seeking an untraditional and unique look, Dickinson auditions over 500 aspiring models. Drawing on her years of experience in the industry, Dickinson mentors candidates on look, style and composure, even taking their photos personally. Finally, she narrows the search to five models who become the first to be signed by her agency.

Stuart Krasnow for Krasnow Productions, and Janice Dickinson serve as executive producers for the series. Janice Dickinson, credited as one of the world´s "first supermodels," is a model and photographer who was most recently seen as a judge on AMERICA´S NEXT TOP MODEL.

Stuart Krasnow is a seasoned reality television producer who has served as executive producer for such programming as AVERAGE JOE, DOG EAT DOG and THE WEAKEST LINK. In conjunction with FremantleMedia North America, Krasnow founded Krasnow Productions in 2005.

GSN To Premiere ANYTHING TO WIN - New Reality TV Documentary Series

Throughout the history of human competition, people have gone to great lengths for the glory and prestige of victory. GSN, the network for games, will tell stories of individuals´ often-unbelievable attempts to win in a signature weekly hour-long reality TV documentary series, ANYTHING TO WIN.

ANYTHING TO WIN premieres Tuesday, January 10 at 9:00 PM ET/PT with a special two-hour episode on Rosie Ruiz and the Boston Marathon Scandal.

ANYTHING TO WIN will spotlight those who have pushed the limits -- some to success, others to failure. The topics will run the gamut: from Bobby Fischer, the greatest chess player of his generation, to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnnie Cochran, men who rose from humble beginnings to reset the standards for achievement in their respective fields. ANYTHING TO WIN will also tell the tales of competitions gone awry, such as the Tonya Harding saga, or outright cheating such as the Pennsylvania Lottery Scandal.

The first topic to be presented in the series is the story of Rosie Ruiz, a 26-year-old New Yorker who was the first woman to cross the finish line in the Boston Marathon in 1980, a year of great significance for the Marathon as the U.S. was boycotting the Moscow Olympics because of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Minutes after her victory where "she came out of nowhere," race officials questioned her record-setting finish time for several reasons, not the least of which was the fact that her presence had not been noted at any of the race´s official checkpoints. Days later, Ruiz was stripped of her title and Jacqueline Gareau was declared the winner.

For the first time since 1980, Ruiz gives an on-camera interview exclusively on ANYTHING TO WIN and tells the world her side of the story. Also interviewed are Gareau, men´s winner Bill Rodgers, race officials and reporters who broke the unbelievable story more than two decades ago.

Second Season of NEVADA PASSAGE Reality TV Show Announced

Return of NEVADA PASSAGE Reality TV Show Spotlights State´s Outdoor Adventure

The Nevada Commission on Tourism (NCOT) announced plans for the second annual NEVADA PASSAGE made-for-television adventure competition that will expose the state´s outdoor destinations to 2 million television viewers nationwide, Lt. Gov. Lorraine Hunt announced

The Nevada Passage will bring 20 hand-picked athletes to Nevada May 8-13, 2006, to compete in a series of adventure sports in six outdoor destinations in or near the communities of Battle Mountain, Winnemucca, Virginia City, Austin, Pahrump and Laughlin. Paired into 10 coed teams, the athletes´ experiences will be filmed and edited into a one-hour television program to be syndicated in more than 80 U.S. markets between August 2006 and February 2007.

"The inaugural Nevada Passage provided us with an extremely effective and powerful tool to show adventure travelers the rugged beauty and adventure opportunities they can find throughout the state of Nevada," Hunt, NCOT chair, said. "We can´t wait to bring the same level of attention to six different rural destinations in 2006."

The 2006 Nevada Passage teams, expected to be announced in February, will have an opportunity to test a wide variety of skills as they compete in everything from off-beat events such as a ranch hand rodeo and railroad handcar races to more traditional adventure sports including biking, trail running, and jet skiing.

"Adventure sports are gaining popularity around the world, and Nevada´s wide-open spaces are ideal for them, becoming a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts," NCOT Director Bruce Bommarito said. "There are few other states could combine rodeo, mountain biking, running, jet skiing, autocross and railroad races in one adventure competition the way Nevada does."

The inaugural one-hour NEVADA PASSAGE adventure reality show began nationwide syndication in August and has already aired in 100 markets on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and UPN affiliates as well as 11 resort networks.

Bravo Announces The Competing Chefs In New Reality Series TOP CHEF

Twelve Aspiring Chefs Compete In A New Reality Competition Series For The Culinary Arts

Katie Lee Joel To Host; Renowned Chef Tom Colicchio And Food & Wine´s Gail Simmons To Judge

Off the heels of its Emmy-nominated hit PROJECT RUNWAY, Bravo proudly announces TOP CHEF, a new reality competition series offering a fascinating window into the competitive, pressure-filled environment of world-class cookery and the restaurant business at the highest level. The series will feature twelve aspiring chefs who head to San Francisco for their shot at culinary stardom and the chance to earn the prestigious title of TOP CHEF. The ten-episode, one-hour series celebrating the culinary arts will premiere Wednesday, March 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"Bravo provides a definitive voice and perspective to creative disciplines, and TOP CHEF delivers a delicious look at the fiercely competitive world of the culinary arts," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. "Just as we´ve done with other Bravo hit series, we will be introducing some unique and extreme personalities that will not only reveal their dedication and high standards to make it to the top of this intense discipline--but also will create some truly intense, nail biting drama that Bravo´s shows are known for!"

Each episode of TOP CHEF holds two challenges for the chefs. The first is a quickfire test of their basic abilities and the second is a more involved elimination challenge designed to test the versatility and invention of the chefs as they take on unique culinary trials such as working with unusual and exotic foods or catering for a range of demanding clients. The food will be tasted and evaluated by the host and judges, but will also be served to the customers for whom the challenge is aimed, whether it be patrons at a five star restaurant or a room full of hungry kids. Food has to appeal to the diner as well as the critics if the chef is to survive.

Katie Lee Joel will host this authentic portrayal of the inspired and often cutthroat world of the culinary arts. Katie´s lifelong passion for excellent cuisine began at an early age when she first learned to cook from her grandmother while growing up in West Virginia. Katie co-created the culinary website, and her culinary and lifestyle column, "East End Girl," is published weekly in HAMPTONS MAGAZINE and will soon be a part of its sister publication, GOTHAM. Tom Colicchio, one of the culinary world´s most celebrated figures and co-owner of New York City´s Gramercy Tavern and Craft Restaurants, serves as mentor to the competing chefs and guides them through the stringent challenges that will not only test their skills in the kitchen, but also uncover if they have the customer service, management and teamwork abilities required of a TOP CHEF. Expert Gail Simmons from FOOD & WINE magazine will serve as a regular judge for the series, and each week some of the food world´s most renowned talents will guest judge, including Hubert Keller of San Francisco´s Fleur de Lys, who helps critique the competing chef´s preparation of their signature dish in the premiere episode elimination challenge.

The competing chefs will live and breathe the high-pressure lifestyle that comes with being a master chef, and each week someone will be asked to "pack up their knives" and go home. In the end, only one will make it through the last spectacular episode to take the title of TOP CHEF. With backgrounds ranging from culinary graduates and students to personal celebrity chefs to a self-taught mother of three, the twelve competing chefs are:

Stephen Asprinio, 24 - Las Vegas, NV
Kenneth Lee, 31 - Dublin, Ireland; LA, CA
Andrea Beaman, 37 - New York, NY
Dave Martin, 40 - Los Angeles, CA
Harold Dieterle, 28 - New York, NY
Miguel Morales, 27 - New York, NY
Tiffani Faison, 28 - Las Vegas, NV
Lisa Parks, 45 - Los Angeles
Brian Hill, 36 - Los Angeles, CA
Cynthia Sestito, 54 - East Hampton, NY
Candice Kumai, 23 - Pasadena, CA
Le Anne Wong, 28 - New York, NY

The winning chef will receive $100,000 in seed money to help encourage their culinary career, be featured in FOOD & WINE magazine, appear at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen in June 2006, and most importantly, earn the prestigious title of TOP CHEF.

The series is shot on location in the innovative cuisine destination of San Francisco and the Bay Area, with the grand finale in Las Vegas, a city now home to some of the country´s most respected chefs and popular fine dining establishments.

ABC Announces The 25 Women For THE BACHELOR: PARIS

A Romantic Adventure Awaits Dr. Travis Stork As He Arrives In Paris To Search For Love Among 25 Beautiful American Bachelorettes, When THE BACHELOR: PARIS Premieres, Monday, January 9 On ABC.

ABC´s Popular Romance Reality Series Is Set for the First Time Ever Outside the United States

Dr. Travis Stork, a handsome 33-year-old ER doctor, may not speak fluent French, but his approach to meeting the 25 beautiful women and attempting to discover if one them is the special person he has been searching for is strictly "ooo-la-la," as the most romantic city in the world plays host to THE BACHELOR: PARIS, when the popular romance reality series returns to ABC on MONDAY, JANUARY 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). This marks the first time the series will be set outside the United States.

Travis, who practices at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, leaves his hospital surroundings and arrives in Paris in style, ready to meet the 25 ladies at his 14th-century chateau. He will take on the challenge of finding a woman to share his life against the spectacular backdrop that will include the Eiffel Tower, the breathtaking Champs Elysees and the historic Arc de Triomphe, as well as the picturesque French countryside. In a return to its original, popular roots, this season the series will highlight all the romance and fantasy of new relationships.

In the premiere episode, Travis pulls out all the stops to impress the women, who are ecstatic to meet the tall, hunky bachelor, and then when they learn he is a doctor their excitement is uncontainable. His bedside manner is spectacular, as he manages to put all 25 women at ease. The jealous and already competitive ladies quickly begin plotting and planning to get an early first rose they learn is up for grabs. And one woman not too tactfully tells Travis that she is "entering her reproductive phase." What kind of first impression will that make on him, and how will her first evening end? Then another woman supremely confident claims she will be the last lady standing, but will she?

The stakes have never been higher, as Travis must eliminate 13 of the 25 women the first night - it´s "good-bye to Paris²" for over half the ladies. And on his first night as the Bachelor, Travis goes toe-to-toe with a highly confrontational woman who goes totally ballistic that she is one of the first to leave.

During the season premiere, Travis will meet the following 25 women:

Allie G., 33, Doctor, Oncologist, who currently resides in Delray Beach, FL

Ali D., 26, NBA Dancer, who currently resides in Seattle, WA

April, 29, in Corporate Real Estate, who currently resides in Dallas, TX

Cole, 26, Sales Executive, who currently resides in Walnut Creek, CA

Cortney (cq), 28, Law Clerk, who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA

Elizabeth, 24, Social Worker, who currently resides in Windham, NH

Jaime, 29, Physician Recruiter, who currently resides in Big Rock, VA

Jehan, 29, Vitamin Sales Rep, who currently resides in Chicago, IL

Jennifer, 25, Model, who currently resides in Boston, MA

Kathy, 25, Graduate Student, who currently resides in Stockton, CA

Kristen, 25, Marketing Director, who currently resides in Bonita Springs, FL

Kyle, 25, Senior Copy Writer, who currently resides in Newport Beach, CA

Lisa, 24, IT Recruiter, who currently resides in Overland Park, KS

Liza, 23, Trade Clerk, who currently resides in Chicago, IL

Moana, 26, Distribution Manager, who currently resides in San Clemente, CA

Princess, 26, Substitute Teacher, who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA

Sara H., 24, Marketing Manager, who currently resides in Minneapolis, MN

Sarah B., 23, Student, who currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada

Sarah S., 26, Kindergarten Teacher, who currently resides in Nashville, TN

Shiloh, 29, Advertising Manager, who currently resides in Phoenix, AZ

Stephanie, 25, Public Relations Director, who currently resides in Walnut Creek, CA

Susan, 25, Financial Associate, who currently resides in Overland Park, KS

Tara, 23, in Retail Sales, who currently resides in San Diego, CA

Venus, 33, Physician, who currently resides in Huntington Beach, CA

Yvonne, 28, CFO of Marketing Firm, who currently resides in Miami, FL

The new Bachelor will get to know the 25 women in a series of fun, exciting and exotic dates in Paris that will elicit real and raw emotions. As in the past, women will continue to be eliminated each week, but if, at any point along the way, a woman should decide that she´s no longer interested in the Bachelor, she can reject his invitation to continue dating. Some lucky women will meet his family, and he will visit their hometowns for a slice of their life in an effort to determine the woman with whom he is most compatible.

At the end of the journey, the Bachelor may quite possibly have found true love. But the big question is: After all of this, will he pop the question, and will she say yes?

Rotating Celebrity Guests to Join Show Veterans Anastasia Brown and Phil Vassar at the Judges´ Table

Five-time Grammy Award Winning Superstar Wynonna Judd (Curb Records) and RAYBAW/Warner Bros. Record´s Cowboy Troy will host the fourth season of USA Network´s NASHVILLE STAR, it was announced today by Jeff Wachtel, USA´s Executive Vice President of Original Programming. The nation´s top-rated country music series and original grassroots talent search to find America´s next great country music star, NASHVILLE STAR, will debut the fourth season in an all-new star-studded fashion on Tuesday, March 7, 2006 from 10:00 - 11:00 PM (ET/PT).

"We´re thrilled to have an artist of Wynonna´s stature, talent and pure-star quality, join this season´s NASHVILLE STAR. She´s a legitimate icon in both the country world and our popular culture," said Wachtel. "By pairing Wynonna with someone as artistically groundbreaking as the MusikMafia´s Cowboy Troy, we´re truly taking the franchise to the next level."

"Individually, both Cowboy Troy and Wynonna have incredible music careers going for them," explains executive producer H.T. Owens. "But by combining their star-power, NASHVILLE STAR will continue to grow as the most entertaining and highest rated country music series in America."

One of the music industry´s premiere female vocalists, Wynonna has accumulated sales totals in excess of twenty-nine million units as a solo superstar and as a member of one of the most successful duos of all time, The Judds. She has collected over 60 prestigious industry awards, celebrated 20 Number 1 hits and is most recently a New York Times best-selling author with her memoir, COMING HOME TO MYSELF. For the last two years, she was chosen to be the United States Ambassador for YouthAIDS, a global initiative that generates funding and awareness to help fight the spread of HIV/AIDS among the world´s youth, and helps to raise millions of dollars for charities each year. With 20 legendary years and millions of fans around the world, Wynonna´s star shines brightly.

The Hick-Hop originator, Cowboy Troy´s release Loco Motive debuted at Number 2 on Billboard´s Top Country Albums chart and at Number 15 on Billboard´s Hot 200 chart. He recently performed on THE TONIGHT SHOW, IMUS IN THE MORNING and GOOD MORNING AMERICA. He has been featured in the pages of TIME MAGAZINE, ROLLING STONE AND ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY to name a few. CBT performed on the season finale of last year´s show and was on hand to present the winner Erika Jo with a Chevy truck. He is currently touring as part of the AMERICAN REVOLUTION TOUR FEATURING GRETCHEN WILSON AND BIG & RICH.

Returning from last year, famed singer/songwriter Phil Vassar and music and movie industry executive Anastasia Brown are slated to provide their feedback and commentary during each of the live episodes. They will be joined by a rotating special celebrity guest judge each week throughout the season.

"We want to bring a fresh perspective to each episode through the judging table," said Owens.

"Expect to see big names in entertainment filling our panel this season, and more importantly, helping find and bring untapped country music talent, that otherwise wouldn´t be heard, to the American people.

Reality Series DAISY DOES AMERICA To Premiere On TBS December 6th

Actress-Comedian Daisy Donovan Pursues the American Dream in TBS´s DAISY DOES AMERICA, a Fresh New Comedy Reality Series from Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette´s Coquette Productions

Unscripted Half-Hour Reality Series to Premiere Tuesday, December 6, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

Achieving the American Dream is no small feat, but it sure can be a funny ride, as actress-comedian Daisy Donovan (DAISY DAISY, MILLIONS, THE 11 O¹CLOCK SHOW) discovers when she hits the road in TBS´s original unscripted comedy series DAISY DOES AMERICA. This fresh, fast-paced and irreverent look at some of America´s most extreme characters and lifestyles, as seen through the eyes of a British import, is set to air on TBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning December 6.

In DAISY DOES AMERICA, Daisy travels the country in search of the American Dream, soon discovering that phrase means different things to different people. Her travels spotlight the quirks and oddities of the American way of life as she tries to fit in wherever she can, whether as a bounty hunter, rap singer or psychic. Along the way, she pokes fun at herself and the characters she comes across in her unique, tongue-in-cheek style. As she strives to conform to the sometimes-bizarre characters and situations she encounters, the results are unpredictable and hilarious.

"Daisy Donovan is a truly engaging personality and a great find for TBS," said Steve Koonin, executive vice president and chief operating officer of TBS and TNT. "Her ability to corner unsuspecting subjects with her tongue-in-cheek interviews has made her hugely popular overseas, and we are confident that, with the comic talents of Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette behind this new series, her success can be duplicated in America."

Daisy first appeared on British television in the series THE 11 O¹CLOCK SHOW, featuring mock interviewer Ali G. She then starred in, wrote and produced her own series, DAISY DAISY, which was followed by the series DOES DOUG KNOW? Daisy´s acting credits include the series MY FAMILY; the television movies THE UNEXPECTED MRS. POLLIFAX, SECOND NATURE AND POIROT: DEATH ON THE NILE; and the critically acclaimed feature film MILLIONS.

AMERICAN IDOL Renewed For At Least Four Season - Terms Of Partner Agreements Announced

FOX Guarantees At Least Four Additional Seasons of Hit Television Show; SonyBMG to Continue to Serve as Record Label for Idol Artists

19 Entertainment Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CKX, Inc., together with Simon Cowell, Fox Broadcasting, FremantleMedia and SonyBMG, issued a joint announcement confirming they had reached agreements that will guarantee at least four, and as many as six, more seasons of AMERICAN IDOL beginning with AMERICAN IDOL 5, which is set to air starting in January 2006. As part of the deal, Fox announced that it had reached an agreement with Cowell to keep him on the hit series for at least five additional seasons.

Though the specific financial terms of the new agreements were not disclosed in the joint announcement, 19 Entertainment did confirm the following elements of the deal:

Under the terms of the new agreement with FOX, 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia will receive a significantly increased license fee per season from FOX, reflective of the previously announced increases in advertising rates for the coming season. Additionally, 19 Entertainment will receive an annual payment tied to its recording agreement with SonyBMG.

In addition to guaranteeing at least four more seasons, the agreement provides for an automatic renewal for up to two additional seasons upon the show achieving certain readily obtainable minimum ratings in the fourth and potential fifth years of the deal.

Commencing with AMERICAN IDOL 5, FOX, whose parent company News Corp. has recently announced substantial investment in internet-based properties, will, at its own expense, build and host, which is expected to become the show´s official website. 19 Entertainment, FremantleMedia and FOX will work together to develop content for the website, and will share the revenue generated under an agreed upon formula. 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia, however, retain the exclusive right to develop and offer premium services on the website.

19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia have granted to FOX certain wireless telephony rights, including show-related or inspired ringtones, realtones and video footage. The parties will share the revenue generated from exploitation of these rights under an agreed upon formula.

FOX has agreed to pick-up at least two original shows produced jointly by 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia over the next five years. This is in addition to FOX´s recent decision to renew 19 Entertainment´s summer hit SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE?.

19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia will produce certain agreed upon shoulder programming to be broadcast on the Fox Reality Channel and the TV Guide channel.

SonyBMG will continue as the designated record label for winning American Idol contestants and 19 Entertainment will receive from SonyBMG a larger percentage of the revenue from the sales of recorded music from future American Idol artists.

CKX acquired 19 Entertainment and its rights to AMERICAN IDOL in March of this year hoping to capitalize on the increase in the demand for globally recognized entertainment properties such as AMERICAN IDOL, resulting from advances in personalized distribution methods that allow consumers to exert greater control over the timing and method of content consumption. CKX believes the best evidence of this trend are the new agreements with FOX and SonyBMG and CKX´s increased share of the revenue produced by AMERICAN IDOL.

In response to the joint announcement, Robert F.X. Sillerman, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CXK commented, "We believe the significant increase in our economic share from AMERICAN IDOL under these new agreements, and the unlimited potential offered by partnering with FOX on internet rights and wireless platforms shows the increasing value of content in a world of newly developing and more personalized methods of entertainment distribution. These deals substantiate everything we believed when we chose to focus on acquiring premier content and partnering with its creators." Mr. Sillerman added "With this important step behind us, we can now accelerate our plans for additional growth from our existing properties and through additional partnerships and acquisitions."

Commenting on the new agreement with FOX, Simon Fuller, creator of AMERICAN IDOL and the Chief Executive Officer of 19 Entertainment, said "We are extremely excited that FOX has recognized the phenomenon of AMERICAN IDOL by providing the unprecedented guarantee of at least four and up to six more seasons of the show." Mr. Fuller continued "We look forward to working with FOX and our partners at Fremantle to build upon the success of the show and expand the AMERICAN IDOL content and brand into the evolving worlds of internet and mobile content distribution."

19 Entertainment also announced that it has settled its outstanding litigation with Simon Cowell and FremantleMedia. While the specific terms of the settlement remain confidential, 19 Entertainment confirmed that it will receive a minority interest in certain intellectual property and programming related to the X-Factor television program as well as other specified rights with respect to the show.

E! Entertainment Television has acquired the hit series THE SIMPLE LIFE, and has ordered ten all-new episodes of the half-hour show to debut in spring 2006, it was announced today by Ted Harbert, President & CEO, E! Networks. The new season is titled THE SIMPLE LIFE: TILL DEATH DO US PART, and will reunite news-making heiresses Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in a format which boasts an all-new twist. THE SIMPLE LIFE is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.

"We are thrilled to welcome Paris, Nicole and THE SIMPLE LIFE to E!," said Harbert. "The addition of this huge comedy hit to our schedule will continue to distinguish E! as the leader in entertainment, celebrity and pop culture television."

"While many networks expressed a strong desire to pick up this series, the enthusiasm for the project from Ted and his team at E! has been overwhelming," commented Twentieth Century Fox Television Presidents Dana Walden and Gary Newman. "E! was among the first media outlets to recognize the enormous star quality of these two young women, and we think they will be a fantastic partner in bringing the next installment of this valuable franchise to fruition."

"From the minute we collaborated with Twentieth Century Fox Television on the first installment, we knew that there was something inspired about this idea," commented Jon Murray, Chairman and President of Bunim-Murray Productions. "The possibilities for new variations on THE SIMPLE LIFE premise are virtually limitless, and we can´t wait to start production on this latest concept."

THE SIMPLE LIFE follows the fish-out-of bottled water adventures of "celebutantes" Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. The upcoming season of all-new episodes on E! will put the girls to the matrimonial test as it´s "you are my wife ... hello married life" for the jetsetting playgirls. In each of the 10 new episodes, Paris and Nicole will take turns playing the traditional role of wife and running a household. There will be cooking, cleaning and all the other duties required to make a house a home. In addition, as "wives," Paris and Nicole will have responsibility for the children, and each family will ultimately decide which of the heiresses is a "keeper."

Paris Hilton, great-granddaughter of Hilton hotel chain founder Conrad Hilton, is a renowned jetsetter and socialite with homes in Beverly Hills, Manhattan and the Hamptons. Having appeared in some 20 feature films and television series, Hilton´s feature film credits include this year´s HOUSE OF WAX, and she recently wrapped filming NATIONAL LAMPOON´S PLEDGE THIS! and BOTTOM´S UP. Her other film credits include RAISING HELEN, with Kate Hudson; ZOOLANDER, alongside Ben Stiller; THE CAT IN THE HAT; along side Mike Myers; and WONDERLAND with Val Kilmer. Hilton also has her own signature fragrance line, a record label (Heiress Records) and has written two books, CONFESSIONS OF AN HEIRESS: A TONGUE-IN-CHIC PEEK BEHIND THE POSE AND YOUR HEIRESS DIARY: CONFESS IT ALL TO ME.

Nicole Richie, daughter of multiple Grammy(R) Award-winner Lionel Richie, has guest-starred on the television series SIX FEET UNDER and EVE, and made her network television singing debut on NBC´s AMERICAN DREAMS. Richie is working on an album as well as developing a jewelry line. She will also write a follow up to her novel THE TRUTH ABOUT DIAMONDS. Richie is engaged to Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, and is currently focused on plans for her upcoming wedding.

E! will also have access to the 36-episode library of the series, which aired on Fox Broadcasting, beginning in January 2006. Season one, titled simply THE SIMPLE LIFE debuted on Fox on December 2, 2003. The following installments, titled SIMPLE LIFE: ROAD TRIP and SIMPLE LIFE: INTERNS took the girls on a road trip from Miami to Los Angeles and tested their skills in the job market as professional interns, and debuted in June 2004 and January 2005, respectively.
