ABC FAMILY WILL MAKE ONE GIRL'S FAIRY TALE DREAMS COME TRUE WITH THEIR NEW REALITY SERIES "AMERICA'S PROM QUEEN"

Casting for This New Reality Series to Begin Immediately

(Burbank, CA � November 29, 2007) ABC Family is set to launch a new reality show that will send several lucky high school girls on a fairy tale journey in hopes of being crowned "America's Prom Queen," it was announced today by Paul Lee, president, ABC Family. The six one-hour episodes will be executive produced by Patty Ivins and Julie Pizzi.

"This is a great show for our Millennial audience," said Mr. Lee. "Patty Ivins and Julie Pizzi are producing a show for us that will be packed with all of the drama, emotion, rivalry and friendship that go into choosing America's Prom Queen."

These high-school aged girls will begin their journey as they move into a storybook worthy mansion where they will face a series of challenges that will test their prom queen mettle. Each week, upon completion of the challenges, the girls will have to face the Prom Committee for weekly eliminations.
