[via press release from Oxygen]



Joseph Lawrence and Colin Ferguson Round out the Cast of the Made-for-Television Movie Premiering Saturday, March 12 at 8:00 PM*


LOS ANGELES, January 11, 2005 - Who says the Hiltons, the Hearsts, and the Trumps are the only ones with their fingers on the pulse of high society? Jennifer Love Hewitt pushes these tabloid divas aside when she plays the fabulous and completely ruthless social climber Katya Livingston in Oxygen�s original movie Confessions of A Sociopathic Social Climber. Premiering Saturday, March 12 at 8:00 p.m., the two-hour movie follows Katya on her way to the top as she discovers that while love may not be on her to-do list, it�s her ticket to the party of the season�if she has the good sense to see it.

By day, she�s a designer-bag-toting 28-year-old advertising executive and by night she�s a �wannabe� socialite-in-the-making. When Katya discovers she�s not invited to the season�s hottest party, she pulls out her .38 caliber blackberry, her cunning ways, and points her Jimmy Choos in the direction of anyone who can get her into the party of the year. Little does she know her entr�e into the hottest event is also her path to discovering the love of her life.

�We�re over-the-moon thrilled to have Jennifer Love Hewitt as the deliciously wicked Katya Livingston,� said Debby Beece, President of Programming at Oxygen. �Add Joseph Lawrence, Colin Ferguson, and Stan Brooks to the equation and we have a truly spectacular movie.�

�We thoroughly enjoyed working with Oxygen�they gave us all the support we needed to make a smart, funny, sexy movie that shows Jennifer Love Hewitt in a whole new light,� says Stanley M. Brooks, President of Once Upon A Time Films. �She seamlessly transforms herself into a character we know audiences will both love to hate and hate to love.�

The film also features Joseph Lawrence as Ferguson, the gay sidekick buddy of Katya, who is her partner in crime and day-to-day social planner for scheming into San Francisco�s elite events. Colin Ferguson portrays Charles Fitz, the handsome attorney who has captured the heart of Katya only to have his love stomped on for a case of mistaken identity.

Confessions of A Sociopathic Social Climber is based on the popular novel of the same name. Written by Adele Lang, it was a New York Times bestseller and was also selected for Kelly Ripa�s book club for LIVE With Regis & Kelly. The film is a co-production between Oxygen Media and Once Upon a Time Films with both Stanley M. Brooks and Scott W. Anderson serving as executive producers. Past credits for Once Upon a Time Films include Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Three�s Company and Call Me: The Rise & Fall of Heidi Fleiss. Chad Oakes also serves as executive producer for Nomadic Pictures. The film is directed by Dana Lustig whose past credits include Kill Me Later and Wedding Bell Blues.

For Oxygen, Stefanie Ziev is the executive in charge of production. Previously Ziev served as executive in charge of production for Oxygen�s first made for television movie A Tale of Two Wives as well as Tempting Adam and My Sexiest Mistake.
