In TLC's New Series GOING HOLLYWOOD, Academy Award Winners and Grammy-Winning Artist School Young Interns in Show Biz

Eight-Part Series to Premiere in Fall 2005

LOS ANGELES, May 31 -- In TLC's GOING HOLLYWOOD, an eight- part series slated to premiere this fall, young entertainment industry hopefuls are thrown into the show business fire as each is chosen for a high- profile Hollywood internship with some of entertainment's biggest stars. But before they live the high life, they have to start at the bottom. The respective companies of Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey, legendary producer Robert Evans and hip-hop star/actor Method Man will host these young interns in GOING HOLLYWOOD.

In each hour-long episode, GOING HOLLYWOOD shows what it takes to break into the business. Through our interns, the series delves into the day-to-day business of being an A-list celebrity in Los Angeles -- not just the red carpets, the parties, the interviews and the movies, but what it takes to be successful in film, television, music and online. Each intern will work for his/her mentor's companies, including The Robert Evans Company (Robert Evans), TriggerStreet.com/Trigger Street Productions (Kevin Spacey) and Method Man Enterprises (Method Man).

"The Hollywood featured in GOING HOLLYWOOD is a place few have seen, and is a refreshing take on what we all believe constitutes 'celebrity,'" said David Abraham, executive vice president and general manager, TLC. "Beyond the glamorous premieres and jet-set travel is a world where grit, ambition and, above all, hard work, are the stuff that dreams are made of. TLC will bring viewers that world, where success comes only at the price of sweat."

Followed every waking hour, seven days a week, the GOING HOLLYWOOD interns are under the microscope of Hollywood's top power brokers. They struggle with the stressful demands of their new jobs and their new city in one of the most competitive professions in the world, all the while dealing with the high drama and personality conflicts inherent in living with other people. The whims of Hollywood can be demanding, fickle, outlandish, lavish and unpredictable ... will these interns be up to it?

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the tearful to the hilarious, these ambitious amateurs will endure it all. Their journey through the Hollywood high life will balance out with the reality of an intern's life -- a box-sized apartment that they will all share. Will they have what it takes to survive the cutthroat world of show business? Three interns are GOING HOLLYWOOD ... but how many will be staying?

GOING HOLLYWOOD is produced by 3-Ball Productions for TLC. For 3-Ball, J.D. Roth, Troy Searer, John Foy and Todd Nelson are executive producers, and Dan Partland is co-executive producer. For TLC, Michael Klein is executive producer.
