E! Entertainment Television Reunites Paris and Nicole for Brand-New Season of 'The Simple Life' Beginning Spring 2006 - Only on E!

Network to Have Access to 36-Episode Library Beginning January 2006

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 -- E! Entertainment Television has acquired the hit series "The Simple Life," and has ordered ten all-new episodes of the half-hour show to debut in spring 2006, it was announced today by Ted Harbert, President & CEO, E! Networks. The new season is titled "The Simple Life: Till Death Do Us Part," and will reunite news-making heiresses Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in a format which boasts an all-new twist. "The Simple Life" is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.

"We are thrilled to welcome Paris, Nicole and 'The Simple Life' to E!," said Harbert. "The addition of this huge comedy hit to our schedule will continue to distinguish E! as the leader in entertainment, celebrity and pop culture television."

"While many networks expressed a strong desire to pick up this series, the enthusiasm for the project from Ted and his team at E! has been overwhelming," commented Twentieth Century Fox Television Presidents Dana Walden and Gary Newman. "E! was among the first media outlets to recognize the enormous star quality of these two young women, and we think they will be a fantastic partner in bringing the next installment of this valuable franchise to fruition."

"From the minute we collaborated with Twentieth Century Fox Television on the first installment, we knew that there was something inspired about this idea," commented Jon Murray, Chairman and President of Bunim-Murray Productions. "The possibilities for new variations on 'The Simple Life' premise are virtually limitless, and we can't wait to start production on this latest concept."

"The Simple Life" follows the fish-out-of bottled water adventures of "celebutantes" Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. The upcoming season of all-new episodes on E! will put the girls to the matrimonial test as it's "you are my wife . . . hello married life" for the jetsetting playgirls. In each of the 10 new episodes, Paris and Nicole will take turns playing the traditional role of wife and running a household. There will be cooking, cleaning and all the other duties required to make a house a home. In addition, as "wives," Paris and Nicole will have responsibility for the children, and each family will ultimately decide which of the heiresses is a "keeper."

Paris Hilton, great-granddaughter of Hilton hotel chain founder Conrad Hilton, is a renowned jetsetter and socialite with homes in Beverly Hills, Manhattan and the Hamptons. Having appeared in some 20 feature films and television series, Hilton's feature film credits include this year's "House of Wax," and she recently wrapped filming "National Lampoon's Pledge This!" and "Bottom's Up." Her other film credits include "Raising Helen," with Kate Hudson; "Zoolander," alongside Ben Stiller; "The Cat in the Hat;" along side Mike Myers; and "Wonderland" with Val Kilmer. Hilton also has her own signature fragrance line, a record label (Heiress Records) and has written two books, Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose and Your Heiress Diary: Confess It All to Me.

Nicole Richie, daughter of multiple Grammy(R) Award-winner Lionel Richie, has guest-starred on the television series "Six Feet Under" and "Eve," and made her network television singing debut on NBC's "American Dreams." Richie is working on an album as well as developing a jewelry line. She will also write a follow up to her novel The Truth About Diamonds. Richie is engaged to Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, and is currently focused on plans for her upcoming wedding.

E! will also have access to the 36-episode library of the series, which aired on Fox Broadcasting, beginning in January 2006. Season one, titled simply "The Simple Life" debuted on Fox on December 2, 2003. The following installments, titled "Simple Life: Road Trip" and "Simple Life: Interns" took the girls on a road trip from Miami to Los Angeles and tested their skills in the job market as professional interns, and debuted in June 2004 and January 2005, respectively.

"The Simple Life" is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.
