Award-Winning Series Everybody Hates Chris to Join Nick At Nite's Line-up, Fall 2009

Network Acquires Exclusive Basic Cable Rights to Hit Series By Co-Creator Chris Rock

NEW YORK, March 3 -- The award-winning family comedy series, Everybody Hates Chris from co-creator and narrator Chris Rock, will join the Nick At Nite line-up in fall, 2009, it was announced today by Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group.

Beginning September 2009, Nick At Nite will become the exclusive basic cable home to the half-hour series which stars Tyler James Williams ("Unaccompanied Minors") as Chris, Terry Crews ("The Longest Yard") as Julius, Tichina Arnold ("Martin") as Rochelle, Tequan Richmond ("Ray") as Drew, Imani Hakim as Tonya and Vincent Martella ("Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo") as Greg.

"Nick At Nite is one of my family's favorite TV networks," said Chris Rock. "I am thrilled that this series, which reflects my childhood growing up in Brooklyn, is coming to the number-one home for great family comedies."

"Following in the success we've had with George Lopez and Home Improvement, this show has all the makings to be our next big hit for kids and parents on Nick At Nite," Zarghami said. "Chris Rock is a comedic genius hugely popular with adults, and he's created a great kid-centric character and story that will be relevant to both our kid and adult audience. It's a great addition for us."

The deal with CBS Television Distribution includes a four-year license period for a minimum of four seasons (80 episodes). The hit series is currently in production on season four, which is included as part of the overall deal.

Everybody Hates Chris, which premiered on the UPN network in September 2005 and currently airs on the CW, is inspired by Rock's real-life childhood experiences. The series, co-created and narrated by Chris Rock along with co-creator and writer Ali LeRoi tells the story of a teenager growing up as the eldest of three children in Brooklyn, New York, during the early 1980s. Uprooted to a new neighborhood and bused into a predominantly white middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris struggles to find his place while keeping his siblings in line at home and surmounting the challenges of junior high. This responsible, resilient adolescent brings a distinct, funny spin to his everyday trials and traumas, in the critically acclaimed, single-camera comedy. Everybody Hates Chris has earned an NAACP Image Award(R) for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as Golden Globe(R) and People's Choice Award nominations.

The series features guest stars including Jimmie Walker, Loretta Devine, Wayne Brady, Orlando Jones, Richard Lewis, Vincent Pastore, Robert Wuhl, Phylicia Rashad and Tommy Davidson.

The series is executive produced by Michael Rotenberg ("King of the Hill"), Dave Becky ("Lucky Louie") and Don Reo ("My Wife and Kids"). "Everybody Hates Chris" is a production of CBS Paramount Network Television Inc. in association with Chris Rock Enterprises, Inc. and 3 Arts Entertainment.
