BRAVO'S "PARTY/PARTY" REVEALS THE ROLLER-COASTER RIDE 16 FAMILIES TAKE TO PLAN PERFECT PARTIES RESULTING IN DOMESTIC DRAMA AND LASTING MEMORIES

NEW ONE-HOUR SERIES PREMIERES ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6 AT 9 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK � October 11, 2005 - Bravo celebrates good times as the eight-part, one-hour series "Party/Party" follows the dramatic lives of 16 diverse families as they put major time, energy, and cash into the planning and preparation of the party to end all parties. Viewers will see a five-year-old's $10,000 princess party complete with a horse drawn Cinderella carriage, the inspirational wedding ceremony of childhood sweet-hearts reunited after years apart, as well as the most the most magnificent Bat Mitzvah this side of Jerusalem. The premiere episode of "Party/Party" will be the "Graduation" episode on Tuesday, December 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Each one-hour episode will explore the contrasting ways in which two very different families celebrate similar events. The common bond is each family's wish to throw the best party ever to create the most memorable event possible for the guest of honor. What each episode unveils is the nonstop mania over the smallest details � from the invitation list, to the most impressive venue, to the ideal party attire, to the right selection of tunes. Coming to final decisions between parents, children, spouses, party-planners and anyone else who desires to throw in their two cents can be quite the challenge. Hopefully, the end result will be a night to remember.

Among the 16 families "Party/Party" follows, the Karkoska's live a carefree life in Laguna Beach. Daughter, Kacey, is turning five and a $10,000 "princess party" where all the guests will dress as royalty only seems fitting for their little girl. The guest of honor will make her grand-entrance in a horse-drawn "Cinderella" carriage.

The Lewis family is throwing a b'nei mitzvah (double Bar Mitzvah) for twins Dustin and Benjamin. Their mom has been saving for this day since they were born and wants the party to be unforgettable. Unfortunately, with six kids in the house money is tight, so mom will have to beg, borrow and beg some more to get everything she wants...and she wants a lot!

Celebrating a similar occasion, the Swartz family isn't cutting corners as they plan a $200,000 Bat Mitzvah in New York City for daughter Annabel. Mom is a high-society Manhattanite and a professional party planner who is flying in a dance troupe from Martha's Vineyard to perform a hip-hop dance routine. The Cortese family is also featured in "Party/Party" as they bring "Club Samatha" to life in celebration of their daughter's sweet 16. The party will include bouncers, poker tables, and an oxygen bar. Viewers will see the private clashes and frayed nerves of these folks and many more as "Party/Party" shows the behind the scenes of pulling off the ultimate event.
