TBS Inks Development Deals with Bruce Nash�s Nash Entertainment for Slate of New Comedic Reality Series

TBS has signed a deal with reality show producer Bruce Nash (Outback Jack, Meet My Folks, For Love or Money, Who Wants To Marry My Dad?) and Nash Entertainment to create several comedic reality show concepts for the network, announced Steve Koonin, executive vice president and chief operating officer for TBS and TNT. These show concepts will be targeted for development into pilots or full series in 2005.

�This deal with one of television�s most successful producers of reality television affirms TBS�s commitment to developing unique comedic reality series that build upon our �very funny� branding and complement our highly popular comedy line-up,� said Koonin.

�We are thrilled to be working with TBS again as we continue to explore new directions to take reality programming,� said Nash.

TBS previously worked with Nash Entertainment on the reality series Outback Jack, in which 12 pampered city women were dropped into the Australian Outback to compete for the affections of a rugged leading man. When it aired on TBS, Outback Jack averaged more than 2 million viewers through its eight-week run and produced triple-digit growth vs. the same time period last year among all key adult and female demos.

Nash is one of the most creative producers in television. His company, Nash Entertainment, is responsible for some of the top-rated reality programs on television and is expanding into scripted series, with such recently announced projects as If the South Won the Civil War, as well as several feature film projects.

TBS is television�s �very funny� network, serving as home to such hot contemporary comedies as Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, Seinfeld and Friends; high-profile original reality series, such as the upcoming The Real Gilligan�s Island, He�s a Lady and The Mansion; blockbuster movies; and hosted movie showcases.

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a Time Warner company, is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and the leading provider of programming for the basic cable industry.
