BRAVO INKS DEAL WITH KATHY GRIFFIN FOR UNSCRIPTED SERIES TO DOCUMENT THE COMIC'S LIFE ON THE D-LIST

BURBANK, Calif. -- January 3, 2005 -- Bravo clinches deal with "D-List" darling Kathy Griffin for a six-episode, one-hour unscripted series to document the comic's life and efforts to keep her career afloat. Each episode will include a portion of Griffin's stand-up act or public appearance, as well as the behind-the-scenes negotiations and preparations that go into each performance. It's an insider's look at the indignities and encounters that can only happen when one is a well-known and under-appreciated comic doing what it takes to make a living. "Kathy Griffin: Life on the D-List" is slated to air on Bravo in 2005. The announcement was made today by Bravo President Lauren Zalaznick.

"I think it's wonderfully ironic that Kathy Griffin, the ultimate reality TV fanatic, now has her own unscripted series," said Zalaznick. "Her cutting commentary on Hollywood and celebrity culture made for a very successful stand-up act and comedy special for Bravo. I'm confident the series will be every bit as entertaining."

The series will also feature Griffin's "peeps," who include: her husband, Matt; her assistant, Jessica; her live-in decorator, Mike; her "gays" Dennis and Tony; her overworked public relations team; her parents; her out-of-town in-laws; and a host of others who manage to both help and hinder Griffin's quest for fame.

Picture This Television will produce "Kathy Griffin: Life on the D-List" for Bravo.
