HOT FROM FOX�

FORMER WWE DIVA LAUREN JONES PUTS TYLER, TX, ON THE MAP WHEN "ANCHORWOMAN" PREMIERES TUESDAY, AUG. 21, ON FOX

Jones Debuts as KYTX Channel 19's Newest Anchor on Monday, June 11

Best known for its kindly manners, rose gardens and antique shops, the city of Tyler, TX, will never be the same once ANCHORWOMAN premieres with a special one-hour episode Tuesday, Aug. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The series begins airing in its regular time period Tuesday, Aug. 28 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). A comedy/reality hybrid, ANCHORWOMAN follows the trials and tribulations of buxom blonde Lauren Jones as she sets out to transform herself from swimsuit model to hard-hitting news anchor for KYTX Channel 19 in Tyler. Jones makes her live debut as KYTX's newest anchor on its 5:00 PM newscast next Monday, June 11.

On ANCHORWOMAN, Phil Hurley is the owner of KYTX, a middle-market news station. Desperate to turn the tide of his news rating woes and compete with the longtime ratings giant, Phil has shocked the station and town of Tyler, TX, by bringing in Jones, a gorgeous model and former WWE diva with no previous news experience, to be his next ANCHORWOMAN � all in hopes of reinventing the look of Channel 19 and overhauling its below-average 6 share to a number more like his competitor's 36.

Jones, the former Miss New York and �ber-vixen, packs up her Versace dresses and heads to Tyler to start a new career. Can this bombshell make it as a serious reporter? Will she save KYTX, or make it the laughingstock of the Lone Star State? Lauren wants to show everyone she's no airhead, and this is her big chance to prove she's more than just a pretty face.

The entire newsroom thinks the boss has made a giant mistake. Reigning anchor Annalisa Petraglia is not about to lose her Queen Bee status to some L.A. hottie. News Director Dan Delgado is fit to be tied as his beloved journalistic standards go out the window. Michelle Reese, a hard-nosed reporter bound for CNN, will take no prisoners. Lauren has a big job in front of her as she struggles with her news team and an unfamiliar town.

ANCHORWOMAN is produced by Fox 21 and The G Group. Brian Gadinsky is the creator and serves as executive producer. Joshua Bingham serves as co-executive producer with Chad Damiani and J.P. Lavin serving as supervising producers.
