TV LAND CELEBRATES THE LIFE OF HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS AND POP ICON FARRAH FAWCETT

New York, NY, June 25, 2009 � TV Land will honor the memory of Hollywood actress and pop culture icon Farrah Fawcett with a tribute presentation with the first two episodes of the 2005 TV Land original series, "Chasing Farrah," which chronicled her daily life as one of the most recognized stars in the history of celebrity, on Saturday, June 27 from 9pm � 10pm ET/PT. Fawcett passed away in Santa Monica, California this morning from cancer at the age of 62. The series gave viewers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the actress and her travels, both in and out of the spotlight.

"Farrah Fawcett was much more than a Hollywood icon, but a friend and colleague," explains Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "We are honored to have known her and worked with her and will remember her fondly. Our hearts go out to Farrah's entire family."

The tribute presentation of "Chasing Farrah" celebrates Farrah as she went to the U.S. Open in New York, relaxed with her close friend Alana Stewart and shared dinner with Ryan O'Neal � the love of her life � at his beach house.

TVLand.com will feature a Memorial Spot � which will also run on-air � and Obituary.

Born on February 2, 1947 in Corpus Christi, Texas Farrah Fawcett always stole the spotlight with her beauty and spirit. While attending the University of Texas, she caught the eye of a celebrity publicist who convinced her to pursue her dream of acting in Los Angeles. She left Texas for the City of Angels and the rest is history. Her television career gained steam throughout the 1960s when she appeared on well-known shows such as "I Dream of Jeannie," "The Flying Nun" and "The Partridge Family" but it was the role of private eye "Jill Munroe" in the TV series, "Charlie's Angels" that garnered her world-wide fame and iconic status. Her growing popularity could not be denied when, during the first season, she posed in a red bathing suit for a poster that to this day has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. Fawcett left "Charlie's Angels" after just one season but continued a successful acting career including Emmy-nominated performances in "The Burning Bed," "Small Sacrifices," "The Guardian" and "Extremities" and in the acclaimed film, "The Apostle."
