MTV AND DIDDY SERVE UP BONUS EPISODES OF HIT REALITY SERIES "MAKING THE BAND" FOR EARLY 2009

Revealing the Fate of Danity Kane, Following the Journey of Day26 &

Solo Artist Donnie Klang's Climb to The Top

New York, New York �October 15, 2008 � With the future of Danity Kane still up in the air, Day26 pursuing their dreams and Donnie Klang working his way to the top, where do they go from here? MTV is extending the drama into 2009 with bonus episodes of the hit reality series "Making The Band." The saga will continue with the remaining members of Danity Kane, their label mates Day26 and Donnie Klang as they all embark on the next phases of their Bad Boy careers.

The extended season will pick-up where the last one left off�Following all the drama and turmoil from the cliffhanger on the live finale. Fans will catch-up with Day26 as they go out on their own and experience what it's like to be the opening act for more established recording artists. Can they stay focused and make it on their own without the support of their label mates? Donnie Klang will continue to strive and prove to Diddy that he has what it takes to be a solid solo artist and go on tour with more well known musical acts. Will the hectic pace of the music business put too much strain on Dawn and Que's romance or will it make their love stronger? The Danity Kane story will continue to unfold after Diddy's shocking decision to remove Aubrey and D. Woods from the group. Will the Band live on without them? Will Aubrey and D. Woods return to Danity Kane? The bonus episodes will follow MTV's favorite "Making The Band" artists as they give it all they have while trying to remain true to themselves in the process.

At last night's "Making The Band 4" live finale the anxiety was at an all time high. MTV News correspondent Sway hosted one of the most controversial season finales' in "Making The Band" history. Media mogul Diddy talked to fans and answered questions about his recent decision to shake up his platinum selling artists Danity Kane. The season finale ended bitter sweet, leaving Danity Kane fans shocked at the outcome and wondering what lies ahead. Day26 and Donnie Klang were speechless and concerned for their own futures after seeing how quickly their friends and label mates can go from being on top to struggling to stay in the game.

"Diddy is a master star maker and a genius at creating drama. With the cliffhanger ending on this season of �Making the Band,' we just knew the saga had to continue," said Tony DiSanto, EVP Series Development & Programming, MTV.
