CALLING ALL 'MOMMA'S BOYS'...RYAN SEACREST AND NBC WANT YOU FOR NEW REALITY DATING SERIES

BURBANK - May 19, 2008 - Has anyone ever told you you're a momma's boy? Are you a mom who's particular about who your son dates? Who is really the most important woman in every man's life? These are the questions executive producers Ryan Seacrest ("American Idol") and Andrew Glassman ("Average Joe") will be asking in a nationwide search for the stars of NBC's upcoming dating show "Momma's Boys." Mothers, sons and brave single women who want to be a part of the "Momma's Boys" cast can log on now at http://www.nbc.com/Casting/#mb and nbcdatingshow.com for a chance to star in the upcoming series. "Momma's Boys" will also hold open casting calls in cities across America.

Interested participants can now log on to http://www.nbc.com/Casting/#mb or nbcdatingshow.com and submit their entries. The numerous cities holding open casting calls for "Momma's Boys" include Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, New York, Long Island, Brooklyn, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, Rhode Island, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Phoenix, St. Louis, Kansas City, and many more in the coming weeks.

NBC's "Momma's Boys," a new reality series set to premiere after the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, is executive-produced by Seacrest and Glassman and centers on a group of mothers who must help choose the perfect woman for their complacent sons. Ultimately, the series poses the question: "Who is really the most important woman in every man's life?"

In "Momma's Boys," love is in the air but the story is told from a new television perspective -- because first, the women will have to get by mom.

Drama ensues when numerous mothers and their eligible bachelor sons are housed together with several single women. As the tension mounts, viewers will watch as possessive mothers influence their son's search for the perfect mate.

Some of the possible brides are "nice girls" -- while others might not be as presentable. As expected, rivalries are formed, drama mounts and emotion builds as crucial choices must be made.

"Momma's Boys" is a production of Ryan Seacrest Productions and Glassman Media. Glassman and Seacrest are the executive producers. Eliot Goldberg will serve as co-executive producer.

Ryan Seacrest Productions is the original content division of Ryan Seacrest Enterprises, focusing on both scripted and non-scripted television production and development for network, cable, syndication and digital outlets.
