NEW YORK � October 30, 2008 � Bravo's fourteen-time Emmy-nominated "Inside The Actors Studio," hosted by James Lipton, returns, presented exclusively by luxury automaker, Infiniti. This multi-platform initiative is the first ever for the critically acclaimed series. The partnership allows "Inside the Actors Studio" to revamp its look and enrich its online presence in the upcoming season. The series, which premieres Monday, November 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, kicks off with Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn.

"We are thrilled that Infiniti has come on board to sponsor the fifteenth season of one of the network's most beloved series and look forward to this mutually beneficial relationship," stated Susan Malfa, Senior Vice President, Bravo and Oxygen Ad Sales.

"Infiniti is always searching for opportunities to build extensive and meaningful partnerships which allow us to engage consumers through their individual passions and creativity," said Ben Poore, Vice President of Marketing, Infiniti. "This multi-platform, integrated program provides us an avenue to reach an affluent, engaged and influential target in line with Infiniti buyers. We are proud to be involved with such a highly successful and acclaimed show as "Inside the Actors Studio.'"

Driven by Infiniti, "Inside the Actors Studio" will feature a multi-tiered redesign both on-air and online. In addition to a new show open, the series will incorporate "The Infiniti Film Vault," an in-show segment featuring archived clips from the celebrity guest's body of work. An "Infiniti Fan Question" will also be read during each interview, selected from fan submittals on the "Inside the Actor's Studio" microsite. This site, which will live on www.BravoTV.com, will present an exclusive blog written by James Lipton capturing his most memorable moments interviewing some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
