The Starlet -- Show Description

[via press release from The WB]

THE STARLET -- SHOW DESCRIPTION

"The Starlet" is the ultimate wish-fulfillment reality series. A behind-the-scenes look at the Hollywood star-making machine on fast forward, "The Starlet" takes a group of 10 beautiful and talented aspiring actresses and puts them through an intense Hollywood "boot camp," complete with acting classes, live performances, screen tests and brutally honest critiques by a panel of judges headed by Academy Award-winning actress Faye Dunaway ("Bonnie and Clyde," "Chinatown," "Network"). In addition to Ms. Dunaway, the panel of judges consists of film star Vivica A. Fox ("Kill Bill, Volume 1," "Independence Day," "Soul Food") and famed casting director Joseph Middleton ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," "Legally Blonde," "The Bourne Identity"). Set in the glitter of Tinsel Town, "The Starlet" has one purpose - to discover the next young actress with the potential to become a major star. The prize is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a career-launching role on The WB's hit drama "One Tree Hill," a one-year management contract with 3 Arts Entertainment and an overall talent deal with The WB. In order to win, each young woman will have to prove she has three special gifts - talent, star quality and attitude.

Another Hollywood insider - Katie Wagner, daughter of Robert Wagner - is the series' host. Even the locations are rich in Hollywood history. The actresses live together in a house once owned by the ultimate starlet, Marilyn Monroe. Screen tests take place in renowned Hollywood locations: Los Angeles' old Orpheum Theater, where Judy Garland once performed; Griffith Park's Bronson Caves, which have appeared in countless films and served as the Bat Cave in the "Batman" television series; and the Sunset Strip's Comedy Store, where scores of comedians have made the leap from obscurity to stardom.

Along the way, the actresses have the benefit of classes with top acting coaches in drama, comedy and commercials. Guest stars drop in to help with scenes, including Jaime Pressly ("Not Another Teen Movie," "Jack & Jill") and David Gallagher ("7th Heaven"). The actresses also compete to appear in a special "style" video for Garnier hair products. In each episode, one actress is selected for special rewards, including a glamorous walk down the red carpet at the film premiere of "Ocean's 12" with "Days of Our Lives" star Matt Cede´┐Żo. Other "star treatments" include a photo session with sought-after photographer Simon Gluckman, a makeover with top stylists and a power dinner with a Hollywood director.

Real-life drama fills each episode as the actresses live in the same house and compete for the life-changing prize. Under intense pressure, friendships and rivalries are formed and countless tears are shed. Tension builds as the aspiring actresses are eliminated when Faye Dunaway delivers the most feared line in Hollywood: "Don't call us, we'll call you." Each girl is aware that the stakes are high, the dream is very close and that only one of them will emerge as the hottest new actress in Hollywood - "The Starlet."

"The Starlet" is from Next Entertainment Studios in association with Telepictures Productions with executive producers Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette"), Jamie Kennedy ("The Jamie Kennedy Experiment," "Malibu's Most Wanted") and co-executive producers Ellen Rapoport (co-author of the book "Wannabes"), Josh Etting ("The Jamie Kennedy Experiment") and Scott Einziger ("Amazing Race 2 & 3," "The Howard Stern Show").
