Highlight Fall VH1 Programming
NEW YORK, Aug. 24 -- From child stars and their
relationships, to a "Storytelling" band and the stories behind their songs, to
the decade that was awesomely 3D, to the continued legacy that is Hip Hop, VH1
will debut all-new series and specials this upcoming fall season.
MY FAIR BRADY -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 at 9:30 PM ET/PT
"Here's the story of a man named Brady who is living with his supermodel
girl ... ."
This is the theme song for VH1's latest love story, "My Fair Brady."
Christopher Knight, known as Peter Brady of the 70's phenomenon, "The Brady
Bunch" and Adrianne Curry the first-ever, "America's Next Top Model" caught
each other's eye during VH1's "Surreal Life 4." Now, almost a year later they
are still in love and living together, although the twice-married Chris loves
Adrianne he is reluctant to marry her. Adrianne, on the other hand, has been
ready to marry Chris since she laid eyes on him and now she's putting on the
pressure. Only time, fights, tears, sex, and a special appearance by Florence
Henderson will tell if this relationship can move forward before it
BREAKING BONADUCE -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 at 10:30 PM ET/PT
This series is a dramatic, honest, and compelling look into the complex
relationship between Danny Bonaduce, his wife Gretchen and their two young
children Isabella (10-years old) and Dante (4-years old). Meeting and
marrying seven hours into their first date, the Bonaduces, who have been
together for fifteen years, have faced addiction, infidelity and Danny's
"death wish" antics, but can they continue to survive as a couple? VH1
endeavored to tape a show about their unique marriage and family life but as
production ensued the series took on a life of its own. Told through the
unique lens of their couple's therapy sessions, nothing is held back and the
emotions are all real as they both deal with Danny's descent into drug use,
drinking binges, sex addiction and his resulting 30-day stay in rehab.
STORYTELLERS: DAVE MATTHEWS BAND -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 10, 2005 at 10 PM
"Dave Matthews Band" took their performance from the arenas they typically
play in to a more intimate setting for a taping of VH1 Storytellers on
Tuesday, May 17 at the BAM Harvey Theatre in Brooklyn. Viewers will get a
unique opportunity to hear the inspiration behind such hits as "Where Are You
Going?" "Ants Marching," ""Too Much," and from their new album Stand Up,
"American Baby," "Dreamgirl," "Steady As We Go," and "Lousiana Bayou." The
show will follow in the "Storytellers" format and include questions from fans
as well as a new interview with the band about their latest album and the
stories behind the songs.
"I LOVE THE 80'S: 3D" -- PREMIERES OCTOBER 24 - 28, 2005
We're back, we're funnier than ever, and because we haven't run out of
ideas, we're taking it to the third dimension, with gnarly special effects
that'll-like-blow your mind! That's right. Put on your 3D glasses and check
out that chick's bangs, this is "I Love The 80s: 3D!!!" "I Love the 80's: 3D"

trends that defined pop culture during every year of the decade. From Oak
Ridge Boys to Fine Young Cannibals, Jheri-curl to Rat tails, Cannonball Run to
Steel Magnolias. The tearjerkers ... the tacky ... and everything in between.
It's 80's-style technology with a 21st century twist. With all your favorite
comics, rock stars and celebs coming together to wax poetic about the
