Slate of New, Unscripted Shows Launch June 18

New York, NY - June 11, 2008 - This summer, WE tv will premiere five original specials complementing its schedule of new seasons of Bridezillas, Secret Lives of Women and Platinum Weddings, also airing this summer on the network. New WE tv original specials premiering this summer include: OMG! Sextuplets (premieres June 18), Chain Gang Girls (premieres June 24), Prince William: Sexy and Single (premieres July 11), How to Marry a Prince (premieres July 11) and F.L.I.P Mysteries: Women on the Case (premieres in August).

"These new specials delve into fascinating stories that are sure to satisfy women�s curiosity and are exciting additions to our original programming line up this summer," said Kim Martin, EVP and GM for WE tv. "Coming off our record-breaking success of our June 1 premiere of Bridezillas, we look forward to continuing to attract new viewers this summer with these provocative, unscripted accounts of real women�s lives."

Specials scheduled to debut this summer include:

OMG! Sextuplets

(one-hour special premieres Wednesday, June 18 @ 10:00 PM ET)

After a two-year struggle to conceive, first time parents Jennifer and Brian Masche find out they are expecting six babies. This special follows them through the ups and downs of their journey-the high-risk pregnancy, birth of the sextuplets and the first few sleepless months of their babies lives-feeding, changing, and caring for their baby sextuplets.

Chain Gang Girls

(two-hour special premieres Tuesday, June 24 @ 8:00 PM ET)

This special follows a modern chain gang of female criminals documenting their every move together as they endure the sweltering desert heat and rigorous discipline to accomplish the most respected program in their women�s incarceration facility. Filmed at the Phoenix, AZ Maricopa County Prison, these female prisoners elect to participate in a 30-day program consisting of labor intensive public service work at job sites outside the prison. Watch these reforming female criminals tell their stories and accept the consequences of their actions. Accompanying this series, bios of all the women featured in the series, along with exclusive videos will be available at www.WEtv.com.

Prince William: Sexy and Single

(one-hour special premieres Friday, July 11 @ 9:00 PM ET)

This acquired original documentary-style special captures every aspect of Prince William�s love life-all the girls who�ve found themselves hitting the headlines, and a few he�s managed to keep more quiet. Drunken dance floor embraces, public celebrity affection, society belles and limelight craving female admirers, we look at the ones that got away, the ones who turned him down and the one who may be destined to wake up to flashing cameras and tabloid stories with the next kiss from the Prince.

How to Marry a Prince

(one-hour special premieres Friday, July 11 @ 10:00 PM ET)

Many little girls dream of one day marrying a handsome prince. Narrated by �I�m a Celebrity� star Christopher Biggins, this special examines what a common woman would have to go through to marry a prince and be accepted into the royal family. Featuring interviews with women who�ve dated royalty, worked within the royal household and the friends and confidantes of princesses, �How to Marry a Prince� lifts the lid on what it takes to become royalty.

F.L.I.P Mysteries: Women on the Case

(one-hour special premieres August 2008)

This special follows a team of Female Licensed Investigative Professionals as they work to solve two of the most intense and emotional cases of their careers-identifying the remains of a murder victim and finding her family, and catching a man threatening to molest a young girl.
