In SOUTH BEACH, best friends Matt Evans and Vincent abandon their world as they know it and head to the alluring paradise of sandy beaches, beautiful people and hot spots in glamorous South Beach. Matt's preoccupation with his old girlfriend, fashion model Arielle, has him diving head first into her thrilling new life, even though she has moved on, and Vincent, willing to do anything to get ahead, uncovers the dangerous and seedy underbelly of one of the world's most sizzling locales. SOUTH BEACH stars Vanessa Williams ("Johnson Family Vacation") as Elizabeth Bauer, Marcus Coloma ("Point Pleasant") as Matt Evans, Chris Johnson ("xXx: State of the Union") as Vincent, Lee Thompson Young ("Friday Night Lights") as Alex Bauer, Odette Yustman ("Kindergarten Cop") as Arielle Casta and Giancarlo Esposito (�Last Holiday�) as Robert Fuentes.
Tony Krantz ("The Bad Girl's Guide"), Jennifer Lopez ("Monster-in-Law"), Simon Fields ("Shall We Dance?") and Philip Levens ("Smallville") are executive producers. SOUTH BEACH is a production of Flame Television and Nuyorican Productions, in association with Paramount Network Television.
In GET THIS PARTY STARTED, UPN will capture the drama, emotion and excitement each week as an elite team of party planners to the stars, led by special events coordinator Lara Shriftman of Harrison & Shriftman, work with one special individual's friends and family to surprise their well-deserving loved one with a very spectacular and extravagant event in their honor. From the hottest clubs, celebrity guests, and trendiest style-makers all over the country, nothing will be spared to make these dreams come true. Kristin Cavallari ("Laguna Beach") and Ethan Erickson ("Extra") host the series.
Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner ("Big Brother") will serve as executive producer of GET THIS PARTY STARTED.
