'Laguna Beach's' Lauren (LC) Heads for LA to Pursue Fashion and Life After Laguna in New MTV Series 'The Hills' Premiering Wednesday, May 31st at 10:00PM (ET/PT)

New Series Tells the Story of Lauren and Her Three New Friends - Heidi, Audrina and Whitney - As They Pursue Their Dreams in the One City Where Anything Can Happen ...

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 26 -- MTV announced today that it will premiere "The Hills," the long awaited spin-off of "Laguna Beach," starring Lauren Conrad, on Wednesday, May 31st at 10:00PM (ET/PT). "The Hills" picks up where "Laguna Beach" left off with Lauren moving to Los Angeles to attend fashion school with the hopes of a career in the fashion industry. Having already found a great apartment, a new friend to share it with and a killer internship at Teen Vogue, Lauren will have to balance it all and make it happen in the one city they say dreams come true.

"'The Hills' is to 'Laguna Beach' what 'Melrose Place' was to 'Beverly Hills 90210'," says Tony DiSanto, Executive Producer, 'The Hills.' "Audiences loved Lauren in Laguna, and we are thrilled to be able to continue showing her story as she embarks on the next phase of her adult life juggling work, school and relationships in Los Angeles."

"The Hills" also tells the story of Lauren's three new friends -- Heidi, Audrina and Whitney as all three girls chase different dreams in the same city. Lauren's roommate, Heidi has set her sights on a job with LA's premiere party promoter, Brent Bolthouse. Heidi's first priority is LA's social scene, and she sets her schedule around her nightlife. Audrina lives in the same complex as Lauren and Heidi. Besides working as a receptionist at one of LA's top photography studios, Audrina is also an aspiring model/actress and a bona fide Hollywood "serial-dater." Finally, there is Whitney, a student at USC and a fellow intern of Lauren's at Teen Vogue. Whitney and Lauren have become fast friends; however, Whitney's internship at Teen Vogue takes top priority in her life.

In addition to introducing new friends in LA, "The Hills" features the girls' love interests, which causes added drama, especially when Lauren's old flame comes into the picture.

Fans will be able to experience exclusive content with Lauren and the rest of the cast from "The Hills" on MTV.com and broadband network, MTV Overdrive beginning Wednesday, May 3rd. There they will find the show description, tune-in information and bios and photos of the cast. The latest available trailer of the series will premiere on the site beginning Tuesday, May 9th and a special preview of the series, including an introduction to the cast and a sneak peak of the first episode, will premiere on Saturday, May 27th, during the "Laguna Beach" Marathon. Also on May 27th, fans can check out never- before-seen interviews with Lauren on MTV Overdrive as she dishes about friends, love and school. Once the show launches on Wednesday, May 31st, viewers will be able to log on to http://www.mtv.com to watch the "After Show" as well as a special section dedicated to Lauren and Heidi's style picks and a video play list selected by Heidi and more. MTV Mobile will also allow fans to download the cast's favorite ring-tones, wallpapers featuring photos of the cast members and more. The series "After Show" will also be available on MTV's VOD.
