GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER will.i.am TO REMIX THE ICONIC "ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT" THEME SONG

Modernized Theme to Debut on October 25, 2012

Studio City, CA, October 23, 2012 - Multiple Grammy Award-winning Producer and Entertainer will.i.am is set to re-orchestrate the iconic theme song from CBS Television Distribution's ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT which he will debut on ET on Thursday, October 25.

The updated version of the composition will have a new bass line, vocals and added electronic elements to reflect today's popular dance music. The revised theme will be featured in the nightly installment of ET as well as the weekend edition of ET.

"The ET theme is a pop culture anthem, a theme song that represents families sitting together watching television and being entertained. My approach is to translate all the colors that the original theme includes, and bring it forward to today's sound," said seven-time Grammy Winner will.i.am.

"The ET theme has been woven into pop culture for decades so we are excited to have a contemporary, dynamic force like will.i.am reinvigorate our song for millions of fans to hum along to nightly for years to come," said ET Executive Producer Linda Bell Blue. "We are extremely honored to be working with the infinitely talented will.i.am on this exciting ET milestone."

The ET theme song was originally composed by Michael Mark in 1981 and was re-orchestrated in 1990 and 1994 by former ET host and musician John Tesh.

will.i.am, a multi-faceted entertainer and creative innovator, is a seven-time Grammy Award winner and the front man and founder of the Black Eyed Peas who have sold 31 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. will.i.am also works with some of the industry's biggest names including Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, David Guetta, and film composer Hans Zimmer. In addition to his multiple Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award, will.i.am is the recipient of two NAACP Image Awards, the BMI President's Award and a 2008 Webby Award.

Currently entering its 32nd season, ET is produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution and is taped in Studio City, CA. Linda Bell Blue and DJ Petroro are the executive producers. Nancy O'Dell hosts. Chris Jacobs and Christina McLarty are correspondents.
