In Addition, Casting Calls Begin for Season Two of "Momma�s Boys" Across the United States, Including New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Miami, Washington, D.C., Madison, Baton Rouge, Louisville and New Orleans

BURBANK, Calif. � October 2, 2008 � "Momma�s Boys," the mother of all reality dating shows -- from multimedia talent-producer, Ryan Seacrest of Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP), and Glassman Media -- will debut on Wednesday, October 29 from 9-10 p.m. ET. The series centers on three possessive, yet loving mothers who must help their complacent sons choose the perfect woman -- and ultimately poses the question: "Who is really the most important woman in every man's life?"

Over the course of six weeks, viewers will watch the intense, emotional showdowns and rivalries, as well as the raw, personal moments between mother and son. All of this will unfold as 32 single women -- some classy and some brassy -- vie for the attention of the three eligible bachelors and their mothers who live with them throughout the series. "Momma�s Boys" will uncover the conflicts between a mother�s wishes and a son�s desires and reveal the truth about who plays a more crucial role in a young man�s life -- his mother or his significant other.

In addition, starting this week casting for season two of the "Momma�s Boys" begins across the United States, including New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Miami, Washington, D.C., Madison, Baton Rouge, Louisville and New Orleans.
