[via press release from VH1]


"Stevie TV" Premieres Sunday, March 4TH at 11PM ET/PT

Pasadena, CA - January 14, 2012 - Ever wonder what would happen if the "Millionaire Matchmaker" had to pair up orphans with foster parents or J Lo really went back to "the block" to see her old friends or the Jersey Shore's Deena gave girls advice about when to 'smosh'? Viewers are about to find out in VH1's new ultimate popculture, sketch comedy mash-up series "Stevie TV."

Through comedic sketches, "Stevie TV" will take a humorous and satirical look at popculture events and moments from hit reality shows as well as the social blunders of celebrities and politicians. The new series is created, executive produced, co-written and hosted by funny lady Stevie Ryan who was discovered through web videos featuring her dead-on impersonations of some of today's hottest personalities. Her impressions include Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Kendra Wilkinson, Lady GaGa and even VH1's own stars like the "Mob Wives" and Audrina Patridge. Whether they are grabbing headlines, trending on Twitter or just capturing America's attention, no one is off limits for Stevie's chameleon-like talent. "Stevie TV" premieres Sunday, March 4th at 11PM ET/PT.

Stevie Ryan takes on the hottest subjects in her unique, irreverent and hilarious style. Parodies this season include "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak's "Behind the Music" and Mackenzie from "Toddlers & Tiaras" expressing her true feelings about her parents. Maury Povich's paternity tests get turned upside down and "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" gets the "Stevie TV" treatment as well. Even Facebook's "Like" button isn't out of reach with a sketch entitled "True Life: I'm A Liker."

"We all instantly flipped for Stevie Ryan's irreverent take on everything celebrity in 2012. Her impressive comedic talents and her passion for all things pop culture make VH1 the perfect home for her smart and humorous spin on the celebrities that we can't get enough of." said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President Original Programming and Development for VH1.

As someone who is a fan of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd's silent films, Stevie Ryan has always had a passion for entertaining people. Stevie moved to Los Angeles at age 19 and started working in commercials and print.

(More)A few years later she started producing her own online videos from her apartment and posted them for viewers to enjoy. The comedy-seeking fans took immediate notice, inspiring Stevie to continue creating more hilarious original videos and drawing millions of online viewers with characters like 'LITTE LOCA' and 'KATRINA.'

"Stevie TV" is executive produced by Brian Volk-Weiss, Michael Pelmont, Dan Levy, Stevie Ryan, and Darren Belitsky for New Wave Entertainment. Executive producers for VH1 are Paul Croce, Jill Holmes, Stacy Alexander and Jeff Olde. The series was created by Stevie Ryan, Dan Levy and James Kirkland.
