LOS ANGELES, April 28 -- Dr. Drew Pinsky announced today the formation of Dr. Drew Productions, which will be based in Los Angeles and focus on high-quality reality television projects featuring Dr. Drew as well as other talent. Pinsky will partner with long-time manager Howard Lapides on this project. Lapides will be the managing partner.

"All projects under the new banner will expand on the Dr. Drew brand of always making a difference," said Howard Lapides.

The first project from the company is a pilot "Estranged with Dr. Drew" where couples decide if they want to reunite or separate. The project is being produced in conjunction with Picture This Television based in New York.

On television, Dr. Drew is best know for the "Celebrity Rehab" franchise on VH1, which is now in production on its fourth season and includes the spin-offs "Sober House with Dr. Drew" and "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew." He also hosts MTV's "Sex´┐ŻWith Mom and Dad."

Dr. Drew is currently in development with Telepictures targeting a fall 2011 premiere. Howard Lapides has been named Co-executive producer on this show.

Dr. Drew is host of the nationally syndicated radio show "Loveline."

He is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America and CRACKED: Putting Broken Lives Together Again. Among his numerous awards, Dr. Drew was honored with the 2008 Larry Stewart Leadership and Inspiration Award at the 12th Annual PRISM Awards. He is a regular guest on CNN's Larry King Live, which he has hosted many times, and is a contributor to The Today Show and most other media outlets. To combat teen abuse of prescription drugs, Dr. Drew developed the RXLocker, a simple locking case to safely store prescription drugs.

Lapides is the executive producer of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" and "Sober House with Dr. Drew."
