PETER BART AND PETER GUBER ARE "IN THE HOUSE" WITH ENCORE CHANNEL

New Half-Hour Interview Show Set to Premiere in December

Bacardi Brands' "House of Bacardi" on Board as Production Partner

Burbank, Calif., October 7, 2009 � Two legendary Hollywood insiders, Peter Bart and Peter Guber, are set to host "In the House," a new half-hour news and interview show focused on the entertainment industry, slated to premiere on the Encore channel Thursday, December 3 at 5:30 p.m. (et/pt). The show, the first original series to air on Encore, has a two season commitment. The announcement was made by Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president of programming for Starz Entertainment. The series will be produced by Starz and RayV with House of Bacardi�the entertainment arm of the Bacardi rum brands in the U.S. -- on board as production partner.

Bart and Guber previously hosted the Emmy� nominated "Shootout," an internationally syndicated show that featured candid conversations with a wide range of pop culture personalities including Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, P. Diddy, Tom Cruise, Kate Winslet and Mel Gibson. "'In the House' is a perfect fit for Encore," says Shelanski. "Bart and Guber are industry titans and their conversations are always intriguing and often result in the kind of 'insider' revelation our viewers relish."

Monsell Darville, vice president, group marketing director, House of Bacardi Productions said, "The BACARDI brands have a long history of associating with innovative entertainment programs. It's a perfect partnership for us to be involved with - an exciting new production focusing on Hollywood and the movies. In addition, our company and its other distinguished brands have a history of high-profile associations with selected entertainment, franchises, including the popular 'Iconoclasts' series." The partnership with House of Bacardi Productions was brokered by Kirk Iwanowski and Larry Aidem on behalf of Encore, Bacardi and RayV.

'In the House' is for viewers who, like us, love the movies and wish to hear more about - and directly from - the people who actually create motion pictures or who otherwise bring a unique & entertaining perspective about how Hollywood really works to Encore's audience," said Peter Guber, Chairman of Mandalay Entertainment. "We couldn't be happier to have 'In the House' on Encore, which is unquestionably THE most appropriate, like-minded network for this series."

Added Bart, "'In the House' will deal with breaking news and industry trends in our pop culture and will provide a platform for major stars, key filmmakers and other creative and business leaders who wish to comment on their industry. As Peter and I report on the ever changing marketplace - embellished by the people who are changing it - we hope to provide Encore's movie-loving viewers with an abundance of DVD'esque added value features: in depth data & analysis of the box office as well as other industry information & insight."
