CARRIE FISHER AND GARRY MARSHALL CONFIRMED AS SERIES-REGULAR JUDGES FOR FOX'S MOVIEMAKING COMPETITION "ON THE LOT"

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS ANCHOR ADRIANNA COSTA TO HOST

Director D.J. Caruso Added as Guest Judge For First Week of Competition

Lights! Camera! Action!

As the cameras continue rolling on the new moviemaking competition series ON THE LOT, executive-produced by Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg, actress, author and screenwriter Carrie Fisher ("Star Wars," "Postcards From The Edge") and director/producer Garry Marshall ("Georgia Rule," "Pretty Woman") are confirmed as the series' two permanent judges after appearing as guest judges in the audition rounds. Director D.J. Caruso ("Disturbia") will join Fisher and Marshall as a guest judge on the competition's first "Film Premiere" and "Box Office" results shows. Entertainment news anchor Adrianna Costa serves as the show host.

The special two-hour first "Film Premiere" episode, featuring comedic short films individually produced and directed by the 18 finalists, who are competing for a $1-million DreamWorks development deal, airs Monday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. While the judges will give their personal critiques of the films, it will be up to the American public to determine the first finalists to be eliminated from the competition; voting results will be announced the following night on the expanded first "Box Office" results show Tuesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). ON THE LOT's weekly "Film Premiere" episodes air in their regular time period beginning Monday, June 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), and the weekly "Box Office" results shows will air on Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) starting Tuesday, June 5.

Since her feature debut opposite Warren Beatty in "Shampoo" in 1975, Carrie Fisher has been a compelling force in the film industry. She attained international recognition as "Princess Leia," a role that made her a cultural icon, in the box office phenomenon "Star Wars" and the smash hit sequels "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." On the literary front, Fisher wrote The New York Times best-seller "Postcards From the Edge," for which she won the Los Angeles Pen Award for Best First Novel. Three additional best-selling novels, "Surrender the Pink," "Delusions of Grandma" and "The Best Awful," followed. In addition to writing the telefilm "These Old Broads," Fisher also wrote the screenplay for the film based on "Postcards From the Edge," which starred Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine.

Garry Marshall's long and illustrious career has encompassed directing, producing, writing and acting. Marshall started his career in television as a writer/producer on such comedy classics as "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "The Odd Couple," "Happy Days" and "Laverne & Shirley." He is best known as one of the leading directors of romantic comedies, including "Pretty Woman," "Beaches," "Runaway Bride," "Overboard," "The Princess Diaries" and its sequel, "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement." His most recent directorial effort, "Georgia Rule," starring Jane Fonda, Felicity Huffman and Lindsay Lohan, is currently playing in theaters.

Director and producer D.J. Caruso is currently enjoying success with his latest directorial effort, the critically acclaimed box-office smash hit "Disturbia," which upon its debut this April remained the No. 1 film at the box office for three consecutive weeks. Caruso's additional feature film directing credits include "Two for the Money," starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey; "Taking Lives," with Angelina Jolie and Ethan Hawke; and "The Salton Sea," starring Val Kilmer. Caruso has also directed several episodic television series, including "The Shield," "Robbery Homicide Division," "High Incident" and "Dark Angel."

Adrianna Costa most recently served as an entertainment news anchor for CNN Headline News. Based in Atlanta, Costa presented morning news segments on the network's "Robin and Company," as well as producing and hosting the weekly "The Big Screen Buzz." Additionally, she was a correspondent on CNN/HN's evening entertainment show "Showbiz Tonight." Costa has worked as a correspondent on "Access Hollywood," "E! News Live," Good Day LA" and MSNBC.

ON THE LOT is produced by Mark Burnett Productions, DreamWorks Television and Amblin Television. Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg are creators and executive producers. David Goffin serves as executive producer with Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey and Conrad Riggs co-executive producers.
