[via press release from Bravo]

BRAVO TO AIR FOUR NEW EPISODES OF THE U.K. VERSION OF GLOBAL HIT "QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY"

BRAVO TO AIR FOUR NEW EPISODES OF THE U.K. VERSION OF GLOBAL HIT "QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY"

ALL NEW BRITISH INVASION BEGINS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK � August 27, 2004 � This September, the British are coming... to Bravo on Wednesdays that is. Starting Wednesday, September 1 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, the Fab 5 from across the pond will be invading American living rooms with all-new "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: UK" episodes previously unaired in the United States.

The British version features Tristan Eves the Grooming Guru, Dane Bailey the Design Doctor, Julian Bennett the Fashion Savant, Jason Gardiner the Culture Vulture and Peyton the Food and Wine Connoisseur. Though the UK edition plays out largely the same as its American counterpart, it holds twists, surprises and some interesting lessons in vocabulary, (for instance, why you should be nervous if the British say something about your "pants"). The local lingo will be spelled out for U.S. audiences with on-screen pop-ups to ensure that no joke, innuendo or hip-tip gets lost in translation.

September's episodes include:

Steven T.: Stephen is a Londoner who is on the verge of completing his MBA, and needs some help transforming from IT computer geek to business consultant chic. He has asked the UK Fab Five to reboot his style in time for him to pop the biggest question of his life, and ask his girlfriend to marry him. Premieres Wednesday, September 1 at 10:00 p.m.

David M: David's style has gone down the "Tube" � as has his job: for the past three years, this British bloke has been working for London's famed underground subway system. Now his daughter is turning 16, and David is desperate to find the look that will pull him out from the depths of fashion despair, and into the well-groomed, mannered and styled light in time to throw her a sweet sixteen that she won't be embarrassed to remember. Premieres Wednesday, September 8 at 10:00 p.m.

Mark D: Mark, a doctor by training, has decided to trade in his medical digs for marionette strings and become a puppeteer/actor. Needless to say, Mark is having a bit of trouble convincing women that a doctor-turned-puppet master is a good dating prospect. In order to show the ladies that a man who plays with puppets all day can still play with a woman all night, the Fab Five will spruce up Mark's look and send him out for a round of Speed Dating. Premieres Wednesday, September 15 at 10:00 p.m.

Earl J: Earl is a young music fanatic living amongst piles of records, piles of CD's...and little else. After being kicked out of his fathers' house, Earl found himself living with four roommates in post-college "simplicity," (read: pasta for dinner every night, a 14-item wardrobe and not a single matching piece of furniture). Ready to ring his Dad up and show him how he's grown, Earl has enlisted the Fab Five to introduce him to adulthood-at least as far as cooking, cleaning and accessorizing go. Premieres Wednesday, September 22 at 10:00 p.m.
