Mark Burnett and VH1 Team Up to Give an Inside Look Into Audrina Patridge's Life on VH1's "Audrina"
"Audrina" Premieres on VH1 April 2011
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2011 -- This April, Mark Burnett and VH1 are teaming up to give viewers a never-before-seen look into the life of Audrina Patridge, a favorite of MTV's "The Hills" and ABC's "Dancing With The Stars," on VH1's "Audrina."
Cameras roll as Audrina takes her career to the next level while working to maintain some sense of normalcy. With the stress of being hounded by the paparazzi, a high-stakes career and looking for Mr. Right, will Audrina manage to handle the pressure and stay grounded?
Besides Audrina's blossoming career and tumultuous love life, the television personality has something else to focus on � her family. VH1's "Audrina" will introduce the world to a never-before-seen side of Audrina � her large, outrageous, Orange County family. As she advances her acting, modeling and business career, she is juggling a prominent role in her large, tight-knit family. With her tell-it-like-it-is mom, Lynn, and chilled-out dad, Mark, at the center of this crazy bunch, Audrina is still expected to have an active presence in the lives of her three younger siblings: former wild child Casey, now married to motocross star Kyle Loza and mother of two; genial younger brother Marky, who aspires to pro motocross himself and has an annoying habit of befriending Audrina's exes; and 15-year-old sister Samantha, who is already exhibiting a rebellious streak that could put Casey and Audrina's to shame.
"We are thrilled to be in business, not only with Audrina -- a breakout star who has captured the attention of our viewers -- but also with Mark Burnett, one of the best storytellers in the business," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, VH1. "We love that Audrina's life plays out simultaneously on two levels. On one level, she is working hard to establish herself in the entertainment industry. But at the same time she has this amazingly real, supportive family in Orange County who keeps her grounded. Ultimately, this is the story of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions all put through the no-BS filter of her family. We love that."
Work-focused and family-oriented, yet still sexy and dynamic, Audrina shows a personal side of herself this April on VH1 that is funny, relatable and endearing to anyone who's ever had to balance the expectations of family and friends against their own hopes and dreams.
Audrina Patridge will produce the series along with her manager Dave Fleming, Michael Bloom and Executive Producer Mark Burnett.
