myLifetime.com to Feature Exclusive Webisodes Highlighting Real-Life Army Homecomings as Network Gears Up For June 7 Premiere of Cable's Top-Rated Women's Drama Series 'Army Wives'

Webisodes Include Interviews with Actual Army Wives Stationed at Fort Hood Prior to their Husband's Homecomings from Iraq; Segments Capture Joyful Reunion Moments

LOS ANGELES, May 19 -- Lifetime Networks' myLifetime.com, the ultimate online destination for women's entertainment, escape and play, has produced a series of exclusive, real-life homecoming tributes, featuring interviews with actual military wives upon their husbands' returns from active duty. These emotional and heartfelt online homecoming webisodes were produced to honor the military on Memorial Day and promote the third season premiere of Lifetime Television's Army Wives, cable's number one drama series among women, on Sunday, June 7, at 10 pm (ET/PT).

myLifetime.com has produced more than a dozen online tributes under the banner of Homecoming: Real Army Wives. Each tribute was shot on location at the Fort Hood U.S. Army base in Texas and features wives whose husbands have been deployed for 15 months in Iraq. In addition to these personal stories, the website offers a robust community, providing opportunities for others to post comments and share their thoughts about dealing with having loved ones serving in the military. The tributes are located at http://www.mylifetime.com/original-webisodes/real-army-wives/video.

"Wives of military personnel face incredible challenges while their husbands serve tours of duty. Homecoming: Real Army Wives provides a real-life glimpse into what their lives are like when their spouses are away," said Christian Martin, Vice President, Broadband Strategy and Development, Lifetime Networks. "We created the segments to honor these brave and courageous women and to support them while their husbands defend our country. We also wanted to create a safe online community for them to gather and socialize with one another to receive encouragement until their servicemen return home safely."

The poignant Homecoming: Real Army Wives segments feature a number of spouses discussing the challenges of raising families and running homes when their husbands are deployed. Wives appearing in the webisodes include Cora, who works at Fort Hood's Army Casualty Office and always prays she will not see her husband's name on an injured list; Shannon, a mom who doesn't tell her children that their father is coming home until she surprises them by taking them out of school; Susannah, an understanding wife - because she's a soldier, too; and Amyelitza, whose husband is returning from his fifth deployment and whose three children can't wait to hug their "number one hero." Others feature a woman who brings the family dog to greet the head of the household and another who can't wait for her husband to get to know his seven month old son.

In addition to the webisodes, myLifetime.com streams full-length episodes of Army Wives, Lifetime's most successful series in its 25-year history. The website will begin streaming the second season of the series on Thursday, May 21, to bring viewers up to speed in anticipation of the June 7 debut of the program's third season on Lifetime Television.
