A&E GREENLIGHTS TWO NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES

'THE COREYS: RETURN OF THE LOST BOYS' (WORKING TITLE) EXPLORES THE LIVES OF BEST FRIENDS AND CO-STARS COREY HAIM AND COREY FELDMAN

'PARANORMAL U' (WORKING TITLE) CHRONICLES THE EXPLOITS OF PENN STATE UNIVERSITIES STUDENT RUN PARANORMAL RESEARCH SOCIETY

New York, NY - September 26, 2006 - After a record breaking summer, A&E Network has greenlit two new original series in the Real-Life franchise THE COREYS: RETURN OF THE LOST BOYS (working title) and PARANORMAL U (working title), it was announced today by Bob DeBitetto, Executive Vice President and General Manager, A&E Network.

"THE COREYS and PARANORMAL U are perfect complements to A&E's successful Real-Life series, looking at compelling characters and delving into their lives with unwavering candor and great storytelling," said DeBitetto.

THE COREYS: RETURN OF THE LOST BOYS will be an eight episode, half-hour Real-Life series charting the ups and downs of this extraordinary friendship of child stars and best friends, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.

Corey Haim and Corey Feldman have one of the most unique friendships in Hollywood history. They grew up together both on and off screen, starring in a string of hit films including "The Lost Boys," "Dream a Little Dream," "Blown Away" and "License to Drive." Between them, they have seen the world, dated scores of starlets, and each have made and lost tremendous fortunes. They have each seen the very highest of highs and the very lowest of lows.

Now, it's 20 years later. After years of living the life of a crazy bachelor, Corey Feldman has got his life on track, married the love of his life, Susie, and settled down. They lead a peaceful zen-like existence in a picture perfect white picket fence community. This suburban domesticity is shattered when due to extenuating circumstances, Corey Haim moves in with them. It doesn't take long for Susie and Corey to learn that two is company and three is definitely a crowd.

THE COREYS: RETURN OF THE LOST BOYS is produced by RDF USA ("Wife Swap") for A&E. Greg Goldman, Scott Carlson, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman will serve as executive producers. Nancy Dubuc and Robert Sharenow are the executive producers for A&E.

PARANORMAL U will be a thirteen episode, half-hour series chronicling the extraordinary life of Penn State University college student Ryan Buell and other members of one of the first university sanctioned Paranormal Research Societies (PRS) as they seek to find the truth behind terrifying real life mysteries. In some ways, the members of PRS are your basic college kids - dealing with the problems of school, dating, and finding their way in the world. The difference is that these students are drawn to examining "other" worlds as well -- working on cases that include poltergeists, hauntings and the darkest areas of the unknown. Each week, they are contacted for help by outside parties ranging from The Catholic Church to ordinary families who are terrified by unusual events in their homes.

PARANORMAL U is produced for A&E Network by Go Go Luckey Productions and Four Seasons Productions Intl. The executive producers are Betsy Schechter ("Try My Life"), Julie Auerbach and Gary Auerbach ("Laguna Beach"). David Miller is co-executive producer. Nanct Dubuc, Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant are the A&E executive producers.
