[via press release from CBS]

CLASSMATES.COM AND CBS ANNOUNCE FIRST TIME STRATEGIC MARKETING PARTNERSHIP TO EXPOSE 40 MILLION CLASSMATES.COM SUBSCRIBERS TO NEW CBS COMEDY SERIES, "THE CLASS"

NEW YORK and RENTON, WASH. -- Sept. 7 -- CBS and Classmates.com, a leader in online social networking with more than 40 million adult registered members, today jointly announced a first time exclusive marketing partnership which gives everyone the opportunity to join THE CLASS at Classmates.com (www.Classmates.com/TheClass), learn about the show, interact with the characters and win a trip to Hollywood to attend a show taping and meet the cast.

THE CLASS, created by Emmy� winning writer/producer David Crane ("Friends") and Emmy nominated writer-producer Jeffrey Klarik ("Mad About You"), explores the lives of a group of 20-somethings from the same third grade class who reconnect after 20 years. Comedy veteran James Burrows ("Cheers" and "Friends") directs a comedy about a group of 20-somethings inextricably bound together by having been in the same third grade class. Two decades later, their lives intersect once again, giving them the uncommon opportunity to learn how everyone turned out and to rebuild old friendships. THE CLASS is produced by craneklarik productions in association with Warner Bros. Television

"Introducing over 40 million Classmates.com subscribers to THE CLASS gives CBS a terrific marketing opportunity," said George Schweitzer, President of the CBS Marketing Group. "Our partnership with Classmates.com is the perfect fit, since the series is all about reconnecting."

Mark Goldston, Chairman of United Online, Inc., owner of Classmates.com, said, 'THE CLASS' uncorks memories of friends we have known and reminds us that it is never too late to reconnect to enjoy a second chance at friendship or love. This is more than an unprecedented opportunity for people to connect and interact with characters of a network TV show. 'The Class' is an inspiration for all of us to reconnect with people we have known to enjoy them again in our lives today and tomorrow."
