[via press release from VH1]




***Programming Note***

Santa Monica, CA - December 13, 2011- VH1 will ring in 2012 by moving its hot new series "Baseball Wives" to Sunday nights starting Sunday, January 1st at 9PM ET/PT following the highly anticipated return of "Mob Wives." Set in Scottsdale Arizona, the home of baseball's spring training, the show features the wives and girlfriends of talented baseball players from various teams. No shrinking violets here, these ladies are fiercely protective of their turf and their men and if they have to bring on a little drama - then so be it. The cast of VH1's "Baseball Wives" includes, Anna Benson (wife of Arizona pitcher Kris Benson), Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago's Mark Grace), Chantel Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City's Jason Kendall) and Brooke Villone (wife of big-league veteran Ron Villone). The inner circle of baseball wives proves to be challenging as the women cope with marriage, gossip and fame. With the baseball season being the longest in professional sports the women count on their friends to be their emotional support while their husbands are on the road but sometimes a friend can be your worst enemy. Rumors swirl and friendships are tested among the professional athletes' wives as they are forced to make emotional decisions, proving that their lives are often just like everyone else's. This captivating group makes for an adrenaline-charged rush of excitement as they showcase their style, humor and fastball drama. "Baseball Wives" moves from Wednesdays to Sundays beginning Sunday, January 1st at 9PM ET/PT.

Shed Media is producing the series. Executive producing for Shed Media are Nick Emmerson, Jennifer O'Connell, Alex Demyanenko and Ross Breitenbach. Executive producing for VH1 are Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes and Tom Huffman.

VH1's "House Of Consignment" -- set to premiere in March 2012 -- is a new 10 episode, half-hour reality series featuring Chicago entrepreneur and fashion maven Corri McFadden who's out to improve the way women shop. Changing the face of the consignment world on a daily basis, Corri and her team of twenty-something fashionistas take in thousands of dollars of luxury brand items from their roster of high-end clients at her sleek, Lincoln Park retail store eDrop-Off. What began as Corri's senior project in fashion design school, has turned her into a young and successful business woman and the owner of a booming multi-million dollar company.

At the store, fashion items and accessories from the likes of Dolce & Gabbana to Hermes and Chanel are catalogued and photographed for eBay auction. Leave your ready-to-wear at home as eDrop-Off only accepts couture items from the most exclusive designers. With only seven days on the block, items sell for top dollar leaving the consignment client with a pretty penny for the resale and stylish shoppers with exquisite items for less. eDrop-Off takes their commission and everyone wins in the ultimate fashion recycle. Make your fashion bid on "House of Consignment" premiering March 2012 on VH1.

"House of Consignment" is executive produced by Stephanie Drachkovitch and co-executive produced by Jennifer Colbert for 44 Blue Productions. Executive producers for VH1 are Kristen Kelly, Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde.

VH1's new docu-series "Mama Drama" -- set to premiere Spring 2012 -- is putting one of the most important human relationships under the microscope - the complex dynamics that develop between a mother and her young adult daughter. But these aren't your run-of-the-mill mini-van driving soccer moms. They're women who refuse to grow up and prefer to be their daughters' best friends. This 10 episode docu-series will uncover five sets of over-the-top, mothers and their adult daughters that leave you wondering, who is the "grown-up" and who is the child? Forced to live together, they will have no choice but to look in the mirror. There will be no host to guide them, no therapist to heal them, just five sets of wildly different women trying to work out their issues under the same roof. Whether they're bonding, fighting or just partying their butts off, they're bound to learn something... whether they like it or not. Tune in for the premiere of VH1's "Mama Drama" this Spring 2012.

VH1's "Mama Drama" is executive produced by SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions. Executive producers for VH1 are Shelly Tatro, Brad Abramson and Jeff Olde. Sean Gottlieb serves as supervising producer.
