THE CW'S NEW MOTHER/DAUGHTER REALITY SERIES, "CROWNED: THE MOTHER OF ALL PAGEANTS," PREMIERES WED., DEC. 12

FAMILY DYNAMICS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WHEN THE CW'S NEW MOTHER/DAUGHTER REALITY SERIES, "CROWNED: THE MOTHER OF ALL PAGEANTS," PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 9:00-10:00 PM, FOLLOWING THE SEASON FINALE OF "AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL"

Seven Additional Episodes Will Air Wednesdays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET

November 12, 2007 (Burbank, California) - The CW Network's outrageous new one-hour mother/daughter competition, "Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants," premieres Wednesday, December 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), following the season finale of the hit series "America's Next Top Model." The remaining seven episodes of the beauty pageant/reality show will then take over the 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET slot beginning Wednesday, December 19, followed by the hit drama "Gossip Girl," and continuing through the season finale on January 30. Encores of "Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants" will air on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET.

An encore of the penultimate episode of "America's Next Top Model" will air at 8:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 11. The "Beauty and the Geek" finale will air at 8:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 4.

Judges Carson Kressley ("Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), former Miss U.S.A. Shanna Moakler ("Dancing with the Stars," "Meet the Barkers") and television personality Cynthia Garrett ("Later with Cynthia Garrett") referee the eight-episode competition that dares to pit mother/daughter teams against each other in a no-holds-barred beauty pageant.

"Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants" explores one of the most emotional and volatile relationships as mothers and daughters (ages 18 and over) from all walks of life compete together - and against other mother/daughter teams - in order to win. Faced with challenges that focus on preparing them for the pageant show finale, the women will have to brand a `style' for their mother/daughter team via clothing and swimwear, create ways of expressing a point of view about issues in the world, and practice for the big pageant dance number. Not only do good looks, talent and a penchant for world peace have to run in the family, each team must also have patience, teamwork and a healthy sense of humor. In the end, one mother/daughter team will be "crowned" the winner and will receive a valuable prize package, including a $100,000 cash award, and, of course, a fabulous pair of tiaras.

"Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants" is a production of Fox Television Studios, with creator/executive producer Laurie Girion ("Cheerleader Nation," "Last Comic Standing 2") and co-executive producer James Canniffe ("The Apprentice").
