[via press release from FOX]

GET A TASTE OF "LIFE ON A STICK" WHEN THE NEW SERIES PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2005 ON FOX

Created, Written and Executive-Produced by Victor Fresco New Comedy Follows AMERICAN IDOL Results Show

LIFE ON A STICK, the latest creation from writer/producer Victor Fresco ("Andy Richter Controls the Universe"), will premiere Wednesday, Mar. 23 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) following that week's AMERICAN IDOL results show on FOX.

In the series, LAZ (Zachary Knighton) and FRED (Charlie Finn), both 18, have been friends forever. Just out of high school and unsure what they want to do with their lives, they take jobs at a mall food court, at the lame "Yippee, Hot Dogs" run by the always yelling MR. HUT (Maz Jobrani). There, Laz meets the girl of his dreams, the lovely and strong-willed LILY (Rachelle Lefevre).

Optimistic but not ambitious, Laz cuts a deal with his well-meaning but superficial dad, RICK (Matthew Glave), and equally superficial stepmom, MICHELLE (Amy Yasbeck), which allows Laz to continue living rent-free at home. All Laz has to do is keep an eye on his stepsister (Michelle's daughter), the angry, angst-ridden, 16-year-old MOLLY (Saige Thompson). Michelle and Rick hope that Laz will help socialize Molly and get her on the right track with the boy she likes � the sweet and very honest JASPER (Ryan Belleville).

Rounding out the family is the perfect and wise 8-year-old GUS (Frankie Ryan Manriquez), the only product of Rick and Michelle's union and the object of their obsession. At the whim of writer/executive producer Victor Fresco, these people are now taking a bite of LIFE ON A STICK.

LIFE ON A STICK is created, written and executive-produced by Victor Fresco and co-executive-produced by Maggie Bandur, Michael Ross, Michael Teverbaugh and Miriam Trogdon. Adam Chase is the consulting producer. LIFE ON A STICK is produced by Paramount Television.
