RUSSIAN DOLLS COME TO LIFE IN LIFETIME'S NEW REALITY SERIES PREMIERING AUGUST 11

Exclusive Access to Close-Knit Brooklyn Neighborhood Provides Rare Look into Life in Russian-American Community

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (July 27, 2011) - With unprecedented access to one of the most interesting and mysterious communities in the U.S., Lifetime will premiere Russian Dolls (formerly Brighton Beach), its all-new reality series following the fast-paced comings and goings of eight larger-than-life men and women who live fully, love passionately and work hard as only they can in Brooklyn's historic Russian-American neighborhood, Brighton Beach. Russian Dolls will premiere on Thursday, August 11, at 10:30PM ET/PT.

Over the course of 12 half-hour episodes, Russian Dolls will provide a rare and entertaining look at Brighton Beach's colorful multi-generational families whose dramas and dreams contend with their Russian heritage while living in this famous, alluring, vibrant and highly protective community. By going deep inside the daily life of this charismatic group of close-knit friends and family, we'll see that they are anything but wooden dolls:

Anna (22) -- An aspiring model and skillful flirt, Anna recently opened her own modeling school. She craves the spotlight but still lives in a tiny apartment with her parents and meddling grandmother.

Diana (23) -- The goal in life for this princess is to find a man she can marry. Of course, her prince will need to drive a nice car and pay for absolutely everything.

Anastasia (26) -- Graduating college is not in the cards for this Russian darling who seems more interested in going to the gym, tanning, applying makeup and making sure her hair extensions stay in place.

Eddie (26) -- A handsome lady-killer, Eddie is looking to make a name for himself in the world, while juggling the ladies and his busy social calendar.

Albert (26) -- A wheeler-dealer who values his money and social status in Brighton Beach, Albert knows exactly what he wants: to make millions of dollars and bring a nice Russian girl home to his mom.

Marina (34) -- Dripping in furs and diamonds, Marina is all about status. When she isn't going head-to-head with her spirited mother-in-law, Eva (age 56), Marina runs the popular local club/restaurant Rasputin with her husband Michael and knows everyone in Brighton Beach.

Renata (47) --Sweet, energetic and whimsical, Renata hosts a popular Russian radio show. She's always trying to make nice when it comes to her friends and lovable, yet overbearing, husband Boris.

Sveta (47) --She rules her 30-year marriage with an iron fist, while her husband Sasha runs a local jewelry store.

Russian Dolls is produced by Left/Right and executive produced by Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman (Mob Wives, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, This American Life), and Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Colleen Conway of Lifetime Television, with Elina Miller, Alina Dizik and Edward Simpson co-executive producing.
