CBS CONSUMER PRODUCTS AND RWS & ASSOCIATES LAUNCH ALL NEW STAGE VERSION OF SURVIVOR AT THEME PARKS NATIONWIDE WITH SURVIVOR: LIVE

Shows to debut at Elitch Gardens, Frontier City and Darien Lake Theme Park Resort in May 2009

NEW YORK, NY (March 23, 2009) - CBS Consumer Products, a unit of CBS Entertainment, and New York City-based RWS & Associates Entertainment Inc., have teamed up to create a live, interactive stage show inspired by the groundbreaking series, Survivor titled Survivor: Live. The first-of-its-kind stage show will put guests' minds and bodies to the ultimate test as audience members compete in contests designed to test their endurance, memory and strength. Survivor: Live will make its worldwide debut on May 2, 2009 at Elitch Gardens in Denver and Frontier City in Oklahoma City. A third venue will open on May 23 at Darien Lake Theme Park Resort in Darien Center, N.Y. All three shows will run through the end of the summer and are free to guests of the parks.

Survivor: Live is a half-hour show for families and audiences of all ages. Each show will take place on a custom-designed stage transporting contestants, and the live audience, to far-away lands using clips from the television series that will play on a big screen. The live show audience will be divided into four tribes to take part in the competition, while actors portraying previous contestants on the show will help competitors through a series of four challenges. In true Survivor fashion, fire represents life and at the end of the show, only one Survivor will remain standing. The person that outwits, outplays, and outlasts the others will be named the ultimate Survivor.

"Survivor: Live translates the weekly television experience into a fun, interactive event," said Liz Kalodner, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Consumer Products. "We believe Survivor: Live expands upon the Survivor experience and is a unique entertainment hybrid that combines the thrill of live entertainment with the magic of television."

"It's our business to make family entertainment the main attraction at theme parks throughout the nation," said Ryan Stana, chief executive officer of RWS & Associates Entertainment Inc. "Each cutting edge performance will highlight the best in music and choreography, as well as state of the art sets and lavish costuming."

Survivor, now in its 18th season on CBS, is one of the most popular reality shows in television history. In the groundbreaking show, contestants are stranded in a remote location and divided into tribes who compete against each other in various physical and mental challenges, with the losing team forced to vote a member of their own tribe off the island. The goal is to outwit, outplay and outlast the other contestants to be the last man/woman standing and win the title of Sole Survivor, along with $1 million.

The latest version of the series, Survivor: Tocantins - The Brazilian Highlands, is hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. It airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT. For more detailed information, log on to www.cbs.com/survivor
