FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, BRAVO STREAMS EXCLUSIVE WEBISODES ON BRAVOTV.COM

THE FIRST OF EIGHT "SPORTS KIDS MOMS & DADS" WEBISODES SCHEDULED TO PREMIERE IN CONJUNCTION WITH LAUNCH OF ORIGINAL SERIES ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1 AT 10 PM, ET/PT

NEW YORK -- May 23, 2005 -- "Sports Kids Moms and Dads", Bravo's new original series narrated by Tracy Austin, follows the triumph, defeat, sacrifice and struggle of five families. The series will premiere on Wednesday, June 1 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Additionally, for the first time ever, Bravo is releasing eight short exclusive "webisodes" of "Sports Kids Moms & Dads," which will launch online on June 1 in conjunction with the series premiere and can be viewed on-line at www.bravotv.com/Sports_Kids_Moms_&_Dads. A new exclusive "webisode" will premiere each week.

"This is the first time we can deliver an entire, extra storyline that plays out on-line, over the course of the series," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. "We're excited to invite viewers into BravoTV.com to see how the character 'lives' on-line as a complement to the on-air experience."

The "webisodes" will dive into yet another engrossing story of a sports kid who viewers won't see in the "Sports Kids Moms & Dads" television series. Sonja is a 15-year-old soccer player who is learning what it takes to be a serious, dedicated and successful athlete. Sonja's mother, Mandy, knows her daughter has amazing potential, so she works two jobs to subsidize her year-round participation in the sport and her step-dad coaches her despite being plagued with MS. The entire family works their schedule around Sonja's soccer schedule and the only person who doesn't put in 110% to earn Sonja a college soccer scholarship is Sonja herself. However, she loves getting her aggressions out on the field and is known for her tough play and eventually wants to play for Florida (they're known for having a forceful girl's team). But all the talent in the world won't get her there, unless she starts to focus on her academics and physical training. Mom and Dad begin to realize that if things don't start to change, the family has been making a million sacrifices for nothing.

From computer screen to television screen, viewers can also catch the premiere of the "Sports Kids Mom & Dads" series. This eight-part, one-hour series follows five families' daily struggles and conflicts as their child athletes strive to excel in the highly stressful, competitive, "win at all costs" world of sports.

Every "Sports Kids Moms & Dads" family appearing in the series has a different story. Their sports include football, cheerleading, basketball, figure skating and equestrian and the families are from all over the nation, from California to Texas to Connecticut.

Craig and Trenton, a father and son team, live and breathe for football. Dad has known his son was "meant to play the game" since the age of two and he makes it a seven-day-a-week job to get him to the NFL.

TJ and Lindsay are a mother and daughter basketball duo. Mom gave up her own collegiate basketball ambitions to raise her daughter as a single mother and hopes her daughter will "make different choices," which means "no distractions" aka boys!

Mom, Karen, is going through a divorce. This newly-single mom and her daughter, Karli, struggle to afford the cost of owning and keeping Karli's beloved thoroughbred horse.

Kim and Bryce are mom and son who are going for the gold in figure skating. Mom has never been able to stand the pressure of competition and can't bring herself to watch her son compete.

Sharon and Sarah are a dynamic team dancing towards their goal for Sarah to become the next National Champion Cheerleader. Sarah has a never-ending cycle of dance, choreography classes as well as countless cheerleading competitions, but mom says daughter wouldn't want it any other way.

"Sports Kids Moms & Dads" narrator, Tracy Austin is a sports mom herself! In addition to being the youngest player ever to enter Wimbledon and the U.S. Open and the youngest to be ranked among the top ten players in the United States, Tracy now is raising three young sports stars of her own. Dylan is nine, Brandon is seven and Sean is 4. Dylan and Brandon play soccer, tennis and baseball and Sean plays some tennis.
