Lifetime Orders New Docu-Film 'Karaoke Superstars' a Real-Life Drama About Four Young Women Struggling to Fulfill Their Dreams Who Take to the Stage in a High-Stakes Karaoke Contest

Two-hour Docu-Film from Go Go Luckey Productions ('Laguna Beach,' 'Rollergirls') to Premiere This November on Lifetime

LOS ANGELES, June 20 -- Four twenty-something women enter a suspenseful karaoke competition in an attempt to change their lives, find their voices and discover their true potential in the Lifetime docu-film "Karaoke Superstars," it was announced today by Jessica Samet, Senior Vice President, Reality Programming and Libby Beers, Vice President, Original Movies. Set in the obsession-driven Southern California karaoke scene, the two-hour docu-based movie is from Gary and Julie Auerbach's Go Go Luckey Productions, the executive producers of "Laguna Beach" and "Rollergirls."

"Gary and Julie are truly pioneering storytellers who have created cutting edge and groundbreaking television. We're thrilled to be partnering with them on this innovative project," said Samet. Added Beers, "The four women profiled in the docu-film have each reached a turning point, where they want to explore new possibilities for themselves. This is an exciting, upbeat drama about finding empowerment, friendship and personal transformation."

"We're very excited to be doing "Karaoke Superstars" with Lifetime. Deep inside, many Americans want to be superstars -- if only for a few minutes -- and karaoke gives you that," said Gary Auerbach.

Each contestant's life story unfolds as she prepares for the qualifying preliminary rounds, the semi-finals, and the big showdown to determine the winner. They include:

* A makeup artist and a single mother, Cherene is still heartbroken over the break-up of her marriage. Through karaoke she is recovering her inner strength and vows to build a better future for herself and her daughter.

* For Michelle, a hair dresser and personal trainer from Wisconsin, karaoke helped her overcome her shyness and discover a natural talent for performing.

* Kristina, a paralegal by day, lost 60 pounds and exited an abusive relationship thanks to singing in karaoke competitions. She dreams of recording her own CD.

* After Kristin's hopes of becoming a professional dancer came to nothing, she turned to karaoke. Calling it a great "confidence booster," she works as a popular karaoke jockey and wants to sing with a rock band.

As the tension mounts during the competition and the night for the grand finale arrives, the lives of all four women intertwine in unexpected ways.
