New York, NY, March 26, 2007 - WE tv, the only cable network dedicated to helping women connect to one another and the world around them, announced today a comprehensive marketing initiative supporting the network's new original series Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter, which premieres April 20 at 9pm ET &PT/ 8C. The multi-platform national campaign will maximize the use of traditional and non-traditional marketing tactics in an effort to generate buzz and drive both current and prospective WE tv viewers to the new reality-based series. The tactics include top tier radio, TV, print, outdoor, and interactive web promotions, including an interactive game on www.we.tv featuring the series star on a bounty hunting mission. The campaign, which represents one of the network's premier marketing initiatives of the year, will launch on April 2.

Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter follows the true-life adventures of Sandra Scott, a married mother of two daughters who leads her professional career as a tough-skinned, cuff-bearing bounty hunter. The former female wrestler and owner of Old West Bail Bonds, is a happily married mother of two who lives in the sunny suburbs of Phoenix. Joining her on the job are fellow hunters Theresa, an ex-cop known as the "shake down queen," and J.D., a massive, ex-semi professional football player who is known as "The Wall." But, Sandra's life isn't all glamorous perp hunting! She also has kids to raise and daily, prickly family issues to resolve between her husband, her 15-year-old daughter Sabree, and Ever Skye, her 6-year-old baby girl. The new weekly original series captures Sandra as she juggles her bounty hunting case load, family life, glock 9mm semi-automatic handgun, groceries, bulletproof vest, and teacher conferences. The series will premiere with a one-hour special presentation and continues with 10 weekly, 30-minute episodes.

"This is an important and comprehensive campaign for the network that will allow us to reach our core audience across multiple platforms, while creating buzz in support of what we believe will be a hit series for WE," stated Kenetta Bailey, WE tv's Senior Vice President of Marketing. "Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter is a fun series that follows a truly empowered woman- and we want that message to translate through our marketing strategy."

Local, Network, DBS-Dish and DIRECTV television spots

Radio spots featuring Sandra Scott running in key markets during AM, PM Drive and throughout the weekends with "Watch & Win" radio promotions
