"DOWNTOWN GIRLS" TAKE ON MANHATTAN IN NEW MTV SERIES

PREMIERING TUESDAY, JUNE 1st 2010 AT 11PM ET/PT

Reality-Sitcom Chronicles Five Friends as they Discover Life's Lessons Together in New York City

NEW YORK, NY (April 27, 2010) - MTV steps inside the New York City social scene in "Downtown Girls," a new series premiering Tuesday, June 1st at 11PM ET/PT. The show chronicles the real-life exploits of Shallon Lester, a blogger for Glamour.com, and her friends: Gurj, a digital marketing guru at Atlantic Records; Nikki, a fashion boutique owner; Victoria, an aspiring attorney; and Klo, a bride-to-be, as they show they have what it takes to make it in the city, together. From crazy nights out to swapping ex-boyfriends to supporting each other through difficult times by laughing through tears, these young women often find themselves in situations that test their views of life, romance and friendship. Although their adventures sometimes lead to disaster, the girls know they can always rely on each other in the end. Some women come to Manhattan looking for that perfect uptown life, but these girls prefer the wild, unexpected ride that makes them Downtown Girls.

Meet the Girls:

Shallon: As a relationship blogger for Glamour.com's Smitten, Shallon writes about sex, love and relationships, examining the lives and loves of those around her as well as her own dating dramas. Career-driven and boy-crazy, she has a knack for falling for younger men and has experienced many heartbreaks of late. Shallon might be able to dish out good advice professionally, but she often forgets to take that advice herself. For more on Shallon's blog, go to: www.glamour.com/contributors/shallon-lester

Gurj: A brassy, strong-willed London rocker, Gurj can usually be found at the center of the Manhattan music scene. She works in digital media for Atlantic Records, and is not only Shallon's ticket to "hot rock musicians" but also serves as a great voice of reason to the girls. She has a serious musician boyfriend, who is frequently away on tour with his up-and-coming band.

Nikki: Having claimed to have dated every Jewish guy in Manhattan, Nikki is on the hunt to find her Prince Charming. She is also one of Shallon's roommates and often acts as her partner in crime. Although Nikki comes from a wealthy Long Island family, she works very hard and owns a high-end boutique called Nikki Laura, with a celebrity clientele. Unfortunately for Nikki, her store is not immune to the current economy, and she struggles to keep her boutique open while the stores around her close one by one.

Victoria: An aspiring attorney, Victoria is Shallon's other roommate, whose eccentric ways provide a source of rattlebrained comic relief. Victoria recently graduated from law school and is currently awaiting the results of her second attempt at the bar exam. Like her roommates, Victoria is also single, and is infamously known as the "queen of the first date."

Klo: Shallon's best friend and a bride-to-be, Klo is a newly reformed party girl in the midst of planning her wedding to the man of her dreams. Even though she and Shallon don't hit the town together like they used to, Klo is always around to give Shallon her blunt and often comical opinion.

Executive Producers are Rico Martinez, Dan Lindau, Brooke Posch and Conan Smith for Crossroads Television. Liz Gateley and Christy Spitzer are executives in charge of production for MTV.
