[via press release from Showtime]

SHOWTIME IS ARMED WITH NEW REALITY SHOW AND...ANNOUNCES 7TH SEASON OF PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT!

SHOWTIME IS ARMED WITH NEW REALITY SHOW "LOCK 'N LOAD" THAT OBSERVES PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE EXPLOITING THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS

SEVENTH SEASON OF "PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT" BECOMES SHOWTIME'S LONGEST RUNNING SHOW

LOS ANGELES, CA - (July 18, 2008) - SHOWTIME has picked up LOCK 'N LOAD, a new half-hour, six-episode reality series, it was announced by Robert Greenblatt, President of Entertainment. On the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling on the 2nd Amendment which reinforces every American's right to bear arms, this show is a fly on the wall at "The Shootist" gun store in Englewood, Colorado, where salesman Josh Ryan is always in full-on pitch mode - and the steady stream of customers never stops. And for every gun sold by this expert gunslinger at this family-owned store, there's a fascinating story and a fascinating buyer to tell it to him: the new parent who wants to protect his family; the teenager who's an expert hunter; the 30-something woman who feels a little more at ease with a revolver in her purse and the avid collector who simply has a fascination with guns of all kinds. There's even a shooting range in the basement to try out the merchandise before completing the sale. The show will debut in 2009.

Additionally, SHOWTIME has renewed the three-time Emmy�-nominated and Writer's Guild Award-winning PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT! Now the network's longest-running show, it will continue to feature the notoriously outspoken duo on their crusade to expose the inherent hypocrisy (translation: bullshit) of many of the popular beliefs and sacred institutions in our culture. Season seven will cover varied topics such as orgasms, Little League baseball and the fundamentals of astrology, among others. Ten new episodes have been ordered and will premiere in 2009.

LOCK 'N LOAD doesn't take sides or argue a political perspective. Instead, viewers on both sides of the issue will be able to watch Ryan, a born salesman, wield his patented quick-draw humor and inherent likeability in each exchange, making jokes and big-ticket deals over the blasts echoing from the firing range down below. And all is done before hidden cameras which will only be revealed after the transaction is completed in order to insure a particularly candid and compelling point of view. America is and will probably always be fascinated with the gun culture in our country and this show will help to explain why.

LOCK 'N LOAD is executive produced by Authentic Entertainment, with Tom Rogan and Lauren Lexton serving as executive producers.

PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT! has been nominated for a Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy/Variety series for four consecutive years and won in 2004. It was also nominated three times for Emmys� for Outstanding Reality Program and Outstanding Writing for Non-Fiction Programming. The series is produced by the Academy and Emmy� Award-winning Wolper Organization and Star Price Productions and executive produced by Price, Mark Wolper, Penn & Teller, and David Wechter.
