NEW YORK -- June 30, 2005 -- Bravo has added an additional episode of Bravo's popular hit series "Blow Out." The second-season finale will now premiere on Tuesday, July 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In addition, a tell-all reunion special with Jonathan Antin and his celebrity stylists from season one and two is scheduled to premiere on August 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo.
"'Blow Out' has been a huge success for Bravo with a devoted fan base tuning in week after week," said Zalaznick. "As it continues to gain ground and perform strongly, we're excited about continuing to bring Jonathan Antin and his world of high energy salon drama to our viewers."
"Jonathan Antin is a star and Reveille is thrilled to continue to bring his amazing world to television," said Ben Silverman, CEO of Reveille. "This ground breaking 'real life' soap opera continues to perform extraordinarily well and Bravo is the perfect partner."
Viewers will have a chance to hear firsthand the behind the scenes adventures of Hollywood's super-stylist in Bravo's 'Blow Out' reunion special. Audiences can expect all of the tension, tears, and magnetism of seasons one and two as we delve into the off-kilter world of Jonathan Antin and his talented stylists.
"Blow Out," which continues to see success as one of Bravo's top rated programs, follows the celebrated stylist as he turns his sights on the global market and plans the worldwide launch of his multi-million dollar hair care line, Jonathan Product.
As a teenager, Antin was inspired to become a stylist by Warren Beatty's role as the sexy, lady-loving George Roundy in the hit film "Shampoo." He dropped out of Beverly Hills High to enroll in the Fairfax Beauty Academy, where he quickly landed a job at a trendy West Hollywood salon. Like Beatty's character, Antin's smoldering good looks and charisma, combined with his unique fashion sense proved irresistible. Within a few years, he claimed the salon as his own -- garnering a list of celebrity clientele rivaling the best in the business. With the successful opening of Jonathan Salon Beverly Hills, Antin's brand and presence in the fashion industry continues to grow as he looks to also expand and market is own production line, Jonathan Product.
"Blow Out" is produced for Bravo by Reveille LLC and Magna Global Entertainment.
