NEW YORK, NY - February 22, 2011 - Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' Milojo Productions is partnering with Charlie Corwin's Original Media to produce the second season of the hit docu-series "Be Good Johnny Weir," scheduled to air later this year on LOGO Television.

The second season of the series on LOGO will culminate with the debut of "Spectacular."

"Weir has a wonderful story that audiences love and I'm excited to be collaborating with such a fantastic team on this project," said Corwin.

"We are excited to be working with Charlie Corwin, Jay Peterson and the Original Media team again and can't wait to bring fans another amazing season of this awesome show featuring everyone's favorite figure skater, Johnny Weir," said Ripa and Consuelos.

"I am so honored and excited to have Kelly and Mark on board with Be Good Johnny Weir! I have looked up to them for a long time and they have been two of my biggest cheerleaders so it only seems natural that our creativity comes together," said Weir.

The second season of "Be Good Johnny Weir" will be executive produced by Corwin and Peterson for Original Media, Ripa, Consuelos and Albert Bianchini for Milojo and David Barba and James Pellerito for Retribution Media.
