'DIDDY' CREATES ULTIMATE ALL MALE GROUP IN MTV'S HIT REALITY SERIES "MAKING THE BAND 4" PREMIERING MONDAY, JUNE 18TH AT 10PM ET/PT

New York, NY (June 14, 2007) � It's the return of the boy-band 'Diddy' style! MTV's hit reality series "Making The Band" returns but this time around Diddy creates the ultimate R&B all male group! Fresh on the heels of creating the successful all girl group 'Danity Kane,' whose album debuted at number one, Diddy raises the bar and puts himself to the test once again. Check out the competition by going to MTV.com and get to know all the guys in the cast. Find out who has the right stuff to make history and become a part of the hottest new all-male group when MTV's "Making The Band 4" premieres on Monday, June 18th at 10pm ET/PT. Mondays on MTV will include the premiere of MTV favorites, "My Super Sweet 16" at 9pm ET/PT and MTV News & Docs powerful documentary series "Engaged & Underage" at 9:30pm ET/PT.

After nationwide open auditions with the help of celebrity judges including New Edition's Michael Bivens, R&B sensation Joe, choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson and superproducer Bryan Cox, Diddy selects 20 of the most talented young men from across the country to live together in a loft in Manhattan. The ultimate singing and dancing competition begins as these eager young men who hail from cities such as LA, NY, Detroit, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Orlando and Charlotte try to impress one of the most successful men in the music business in hopes of becoming a part of the next hot all male-group. They'll have to learn to live and work together and make it through Diddy's unexpected tests to see who is worthy of being a part of the band.

Earlier this year aspiring superstars were able to log onto http://makingtheband.mtv.com to upload their singing audition for the world to see. Viewers were able to vote for their favorites. 25 candidates were selected to move on to Round Two, where they uploaded a dance audition. Producers rewarded 3 finalists with the opportunity to audition in person for Diddy. Tune in this season to see if those finalists made the cut.

The previous season of "Making The Band 3" ranked #1 in its time period among P12-34 versus cable competition and reached over 63 million total viewers in premieres and repeats.

Sean "Diddy" Combs, Ted Iredell and Perry Dance will serve as executive producers. Jacquelyn French is the MTV executive overseeing 'The Making The Band' franchise.

Francesca Spero is Producer for Bad Boy Entertainment.
