[via press release from TBS]

Cast of TBS's Popular Series 10 ITEMS OR LESS Will Answer Viewers Questions During Live tbs.com Webcast Following the Late-Night Series' Second Season Premiere on Jan. 15

10 ITEMS OR LESS Returns with All New Episodes Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT);

Webcast with Cast and Director Nancy Hower Live at tbs.com at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT)

In conjunction with the Tuesday, Jan. 15 return of TBS's popular late-night comedy series 10 ITEMS OR LESS, the network's broadband destination, tbs.com, is giving fans a cart full of digital tie-ins. Headlining the offerings is a special webcast featuring the entire cast and director Nancy Hower, set to take place immediately after the 11 p.m. (ET/PT) season premiere. 10 ITEMS OR LESS, co-created by acclaimed comedy improv actor John Lehr (Memron), is TBS's loosely scripted look at life at Greens & Grains, a family-owned grocery store run by a less-than-skilled manager.

During the tbs.com webcast, the 10 ITEMS OR LESS cast will answer questions about what it's like working on such a unique series, what it takes to be an improvisational actor and what fans can expect during the series' second season. In addition, director Hower and co-creator/star Lehr will talk about how they come up with ideas for the show and what kinds of challenges they face shooting the series in a working grocery store in suburban Los Angeles.

In addition to the premiere-night webcast, another highlight of tbs.com's 10 ITEMS OR LESS digital offerings is a unique interface that allows users to create personalized performance reviews, starring Leslie Poole (Lehr), that they can send to friends.

TBS's Web site also include a variety of specially produced video pieces, including performance reviews between manager Leslie and his employees; character interviews; Greens & Grains commercials; behind-the-scenes clips; and deleted scenes. In addition, tbs.com is offering a beautifully photographed, downloadable calendar featuring the Greens & Grains employees dressed as famous figures in American history (based on the plot of an upcoming episode), a grocery store career-placement questionnaire, episode synopses, character descriptions and a fan forum.

This season, TBS's 10 ITEMS OR LESS will delve deeply into the offbeat lives of Greens & Grains employees, from a manager looking for an heir to a store promotion with silver dollars that goes horribly awry. In addition to Lehr, the series stars Jennifer Elise Cox, Kirsten Gronfield, Chris Payne Gilbert, Greg Davis Jr., Christopher Liam Moore, Roberta Valderrama and Robert Clendenin.

10 ITEMS OR LESS, which launched last year with a strong young-adult audience, is produced for TBS by Sony Pictures Television, with Lehr, Robert Hickey and Hower serving as executive producers and series creators.

TBS, a division of Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., is television's top-rated comedy network. It serves as home to such original comedy series as My Boys, The Bill Engvall Show, Tyler Perry's House of Payne, Frank TV and 10 Items or Less; hot contemporary comedies like The Office, Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, King of Queens, Seinfeld and Friends, with My Name Is Earl joining the line-up in 2008; specials and special events, such as Funniest Commercials of the Year; blockbuster movies; and hosted movie showcases.
