MTV PREDICTS PINK IS THE NEW BLACK FOR THE FALL SEASON WITH THE PREMIERE OF "LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL" ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH at 1PM ET/PT

Get rid of those dark outfits that you've been saving for the fall season, it's all about pink as MTV premieres "Legally Blonde The Musical", based on MGM's hit film "Legally Blonde," on Saturday, October 13th at 1pm ET/PT. Reinventing the Broadway experience for television, MTV offers viewers who normally would not have the opportunity to see one of the hottest shows the best seats in the house. Complete with a Pink Carpet extravaganza hosted by Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port of The Hills, "Legally Blonde The Musical" was filmed on September 18th from The Palace Theatre in New York City, where it continues its open-ended run.

Legally Blonde follows sorority star Elle Woods, who doesn't take "no" for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Nominated for seven Tony Awards�, "Legally Blonde The Musical" opened on Broadway on Sunday, April 29, 2007. The Original Broadway Cast Recording for "Legally Blonde The Musical," was released on Ghostlight Records, capturing the #1 slot on the Billboard Cast Album chart, and charting at #86 on the Billboard Top 200. The album has continued its success, charting every week as one of the top-selling Broadway cast recordings.

At the helm of the creative team of "Legally Blonde The Musical" is Tony Award�-winner Jerry Mitchell, in his debut on Broadway as both director and choreographer, who serves as a creative consultant for the special. Music and lyrics are by both Laurence O'Keefe (Bat Boy) and Nell Benjamin (Sarah, Plain and Tall), and the book is by Heather Hach (the movie Freaky Friday). James Sampliner serves as music director.

Tony DiBari, Tim Healy, David George and George McTeague serve as Executive Producers and Frank Garritano is producer of the special for MTV. Beth McCarthy-Miller is director.
