Hit MTV Show Comes to CMT Allowing Adults to Fulfill Lifelong Dreams

NASHVILLE - July 21, 2011 - It's never too late to chase after a dream and CMT is giving adults the opportunity to do so when CMT MADE premieres Wednesday, August 17 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT. From the producers of the Emmy(R)-award winning MTV show, this eight-episode series follows adults, not teens, as they embark on a mission to transform their life, highlighting both the challenges and accomplishments they face throughout their journey of being MADE. CMT MADE will air in its regular Thursday night one-hour timeslot at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT, beginning Thursday, August 25.

Whether it's a hard-working mother with a desire for speed and to be MADE into a race car driver, or a stay-at-home pastor's wife aspiring to be MADE into a hip hop dancer, each episode will capture what it's like for an individual to work towards fulfilling a dream that was thought to have passed. Mixing in family and work responsibilities, the end goal seems even more unattainable for this new generation of MADE participants.

The premiere episode of CMT MADE features Chris Guerra, a Texas police officer, loyal husband and loving father who has been interested in professional wrestling since he was a child. Now 28-years-old, Chris dreams of getting in the ring, battling against those he once admired on television and being MADE into a professional wrestler. Coached by "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan, former TNA World Tag Team Champion and current seven-foot, 330-pound monster, Chris' resolve will be tested and his lifelong goal will be reevaluated as he comes face to face with the harsh realities of pro wrestling, inside the ring and out.

CMT MADE is produced by One Louder Productions with Bob Kusbit and Francis Lyons serving as executive producers. Jayson Dinsmore and Melanie Moreau are executive producers for CMT.

CMT, a unit of Viacom's MTV Networks (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B), is the leading television and digital authority on country music and entertainment, reaching more than 93 million homes in the U.S. CMT and its website, CMT.com, offer an unparalleled mix of music, news, live concerts and series and is the top resource for country music on demand.
