Oxygen Picks Up Tori & Dean for a Third Season with Eight One Hour Episodes to Premiere Summer 2008

Cameras Follow Hollywood's Hottest Couple as They Check Out Of the B&B and Move Back to Los Angeles

NEW YORK, January 22, 2008 � Representing the first major programming greenlight since the NBCUniversal acquisition in November 2007, Oxygen is renewing its hit series "Tori & Dean�Still Inn Love" (working title) for a third season, set to premiere this summer. This season, the couple realizes if at first you don't succeed, move back to LA!

Actors, proud new parents and aspiring entrepreneurs, Tori Spelling ("Beverly Hills 90210") and husband Dean McDermott are checking out of their bed & breakfast and moving back to Hollywood in the third season of "Tori & Dean�Still Inn Love" on Oxygen. After trading in the glam 90210 lifestyle last year for their country inn Chateau La Rue in Fallbrook, CA, the McDermotts are now returning to Los Angeles after succumbing to the hectic lifestyle of caring for a baby and pursuing their acting careers all while running a bed and breakfast.

"Over the last year, Tori and Dean have become one of America's favorite families and one of Oxygen's break out series." said Lauren Zalaznick, President of Oxygen Media. "They're a modern day Lucy and Ricky. They've got a great sense of humor about themselves, trying to juggle the demands of parenthood, marriage, their families and their work lives."

Set for eight one hour episodes, this season of "Tori & Dean" follows the couple as they leave the B&B behind, buy a new house and search for pre-schools for baby Liam.

The couple created the show and executive produce along with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato of World of Wonder Productions, the production team behind the Bravo series "Million Dollar Listing" and "Show Biz Moms & Dads."

With over two decades in the entertainment industry, Tori Spelling is an accomplished actress with a career spanning both television and film. Spelling shot to stardom playing Donna Martin on the acclaimed drama series "Beverly Hills 90210," a role for which she remains beloved by American audiences. Following her time on "90210," Spelling returned to movies, switching effortlessly between mainstream hits such as "Scream 2" and "Scary Movie 2" and acclaimed indie performances in movies such as "Trick" and "The House of Yes." Spelling also served as lead actress and executive producer for the VH1 scripted comedy "So NoTORIous," loosely based on her own life. Next, she will star in the independent feature Kiss the Bride. Spelling's upcoming memoir, "sTORI Telling," will to be published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment (SSE) on March 11, 2008. Married to actor Dean McDermott, they welcomed their new son, Liam Aaron, in March 2007.

Dean McDermott is a veteran film and television actor who has had starring roles in such series as "1-800-Missing" and "Due South" as well as the Kevin Costner directed motion picture "Open Range." He also has made numerous television guest appearances on such popular programming as "The Closer," "NCIS" and "Without a Trace." McDermott also starred in the television movie "Mind Over Murder" where he met his wife Tori Spelling.

Executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are the founders of World of Wonder Productions. Based in both Los Angeles and London, World of Wonder is best known for award-winning films and documentaries such as "The Eyes of Tammy Faye," "Party Monster," HBO's "Monica in Black and White," as well as the Bravo non-fiction series Show Biz Moms & Dads and the Sundance Channel's "Transgeneration." Most recently World of Wonder produced the second season of the hit scripted show "The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman" for IFC, "One Punk Under God" for Sundance and "What Perez Sez" for VH1.
