WE: Women's Entertainment Adds Six New Series to its Orignal Programming Slate

New York, NY, November 29, 2005- WE: Women's Entertainment, the only cable network dedicated to helping women connect to one another and the world around them, announced today that the network will add six new series to its growing original programming slate.

Today's announcement is part of WE's ongoing commitment to produce original programming that is fun, relevant and engaging.

Original programming has garnered record ratings success for WE this year. In 2005 to date, eight of WE's top 10 ranked telecasts for A18-49 delivery were originals for the network, compared to one in 2004*.

"When I joined WE almost one year ago one of my top objectives was to ramp up our original offerings," said Kim Martin, Executive Vice President and General Manager of WE. "I am proud to say that original programming has increased 30% over the past year. With the addition of these six new series, we continue to offer our viewers shows that are intriguing, easily relatable and entertaining to watch."

"Two Funny: Cotter & Louise" - 6 episodes
Two Funny: Cotter & Louise is a new half-hour show that follows the lives of Kerri Louise and Tom Cotter, two comedians featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing. The funny duo juggles many roles as a married couple with two year-old twin boys, and also as working comics who travel across the country to keep their careers afloat.

"John Edward Cross Country" - 8 episodes

The series is produced by JECO Productions.

"Skating's Next Star" - 6 episodes
What does it take to be a top world figure skater? Find out in Skating's Next Star the new series from WE, set to premiere in March 2006.

"Rebel Gucci" - 13 episodes
Follow Gemma Gucci, heir to the Gucci fashion empire, as she begins the journey towards her designer destiny, scheduled for October 2006.
