Whatever Robert Verdi Wants, Robert Verdi Gets on Logo's 'The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi'

New Series Premieres on Logo, February 10, 2010 at 10:00PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, Dec. 21 -- Forget what you know about Robert Verdi! For Robert, having it all isn't nearly enough. He's a successful TV personality, a sought-after celebrity stylist, an event-planning impresario and a popular style guru. But there's something else Robert Verdi wants. Actually he wants EVERYTHING else. In the new reality comedy series "The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi," Robert balances the day-to-day antics of his hectic creative services business with the serious pursuit of his completely insane and over-the-top dreams such as getting his own TV channel, his own shopping mall and his own ice cream flavor named after him. "The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi" - it's a reality show that's not entirely in touch with reality. "The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi" premieres February 10, 2010 at 10PM ET/PT on Logo.

Tired of living in the shadow of his celebrity clients like Eva Longoria Parker and Kathy Griffin, Robert feels he needs more attention, more money, more fame, more free stuff, more stuff named after him, more stuff with his face on it, more stuff, more stuff, more stuff!!!

"The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi" follows the hilarious Robert Verdi and his creative team as they try to take over pop culture one party, product and outfit at a time. Robert pays the bills by dressing Eva Longoria Parker for the Met Ball, planning a party for "Ugly Betty" co-star Ana Ortiz and coming to Kathy Griffin's rescue in a bona fide fashion emergency. But Robert's real passion is pursuing his crazy dreams as he, his devoted staff, friends, colleagues and everyone else who enters his world get caught up in Robert's whirlwind of want and comedy of errors. From starting his own diet craze to starring in a one-man Broadway show, to becoming an internationally beloved children's character, Robert does what ever it takes to bring his dreams to life...and then some.
