VH1 Invites You to the Wedding of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco

New Series "Ev and Ocho" (Working Title) Premieres September 2012 on VH1

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 12, 2012 -- VH1 has signed "Basketball Wife" Evelyn Lozada and her fiance, NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco for a new series showcasing their upcoming wedding, including all the scheduling, details and drama that lead to their special day. The eight-part series "Ev and Ocho" will premiere September 2012 and consist of eight half-hour episodes concluding with a two-part wedding finale.

VH1 has followed Evelyn's story through four seasons of "Basketball Wives" - beginning with the end of her engagement to NBA player Antoine Walker, to her single life and now her current relationship with Chad Ochocinco. After going through their own set of peaks and valleys in this new relationship together, they are ready to take the next step to "I do" - with cameras in tow. Watch as VH1 presents a behind-the-scenes look at Chad and Evelyn and their journey to become "Mr. and Mrs."

Audiences will get a glimpse into all aspects of Evelyn and Chad's relationship, from the tumultuous times, having to deal with cheating rumors and heartache, to dealing with the often negative and always invasive tabloid press, social media criticism of their partnership and tough family decisions about who'll walk Evelyn down the aisle. Viewers will watch Evelyn and Chad work through their dream wedding with celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine and decide on important details including the cake, the designer dress, the exclusive invite list and more. Preparation will not be easy as these stars battle the balance between their hectic daily schedules and planning a celebrity-studded wedding. Planning "happily ever after" is never a smooth course.

RSVP for this special event and tune in to watch "Ev and Ocho" premiering September 2012.

Shed Media and JUMA Entertainment are producing the series. Executive producing for Shed Media is Nick Emmerson, Alex Demyanenko and Sean Rankine. Executive producing for JUMA Entertainment is Bob Horowitz and Lewis Fenton. Executive producing for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman and Jeff Olde.
