STYLE MEDIA ADDS NINE NEW SERIES TO BROAD DEVELOPMENT SLATE FOR 2013-2014

LOS ANGELES - April 18, 2013 - Style Media announces broad development slate for 2013-2014 with the addition of nine new concepts which focus on the network's key pillars of beauty and fashion as well as home design and entertaining. These series in development join previously announced competition series "Glam Squad" (working title) from executive producer and Academy Award winner Charlize Theron. Additionally, the network is teaming up with Selita Ebanks to follow her as she transitions from supermodel to fashion mogul and with Jack Osbourne who serves as executive producer of a comedic look at outrageous, fashion-obsessed divas.

"We are excited to expand our programming slate by developing edgy, fun, informative series that are accessible and aspirational," said Sarah Weidman, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Style. "By partnering with creative and talented producers, Style provides a unique, optimistic environment for our viewers who have an insatiable appetite for looking good and living stylishly."

The series in development are:

"Crazy Beautiful" (working title)
Produced by 20 West Productions with Scot Thor as Executive Producer.
"Crazy Beautiful" provides intimate access to some of the bizarre, over-the-top and, often times, painful beauty regimens and procedures women will endure to achieve their desired looks. From achieving a 20-inch waist with intense corseting, to growing foot-long fingernails, to desiring triple-L breast implants, these individuals strive to defy the conventional standards of beauty.

"The Fabulist" (working title)
Produced by Lionsgate Entertainment with Eli Frankel as Executive Producer.
This humorous half-hour countdown show features tastemakers and pop culture junkies who weigh in on what is hot in the world of vacation destinations, luxury homes and fabulous lifestyles. "The Fabulist" will celebrate the best of the best by counting down all things fun and fantastic.

"Fashion Phenoms" (working title)
Produced by Bray Entertainment with Chris Bray, David Miller and Will Chandler as Executive Producers.
Kid fashion design prodigies go head-to-head with one another in a high-stakes design competition, accompanied by their parents who are learning to navigate the cutthroat world of high-fashion. These "Fashion Phenoms" will be pushed to the next level as they are mentored by some of the biggest designers in the business while challenged to create their own line and compete on the national stage.

"Keep the Party Moving!" (working title)
Produced by Cineflix with Lisa Levenson and Simon Lloyd as Executive Producers.
The "progressive dinner" is a hot trend in home entertaining and serves as the backdrop for this fun and outrageous competition series. Event planners extraordinaire, Kristin Banta and Kevin Lee, will critique four friends as they creatively carve out each course to prove who is the best in entertaining.

"Matched by Design" (working title)
Produced by PB&J Television with Patty Ivins, Julie Pizzi, Adam Ripp and Scott Cushing as Executive Producers.
This half-hour home makeover series introduces Lloyd Princeton, a high-end interior design broker who matches a very wealthy client with an A-list designer. His matchmaking process involves selecting three designers to present their unique vision for the client's renovation. The client then makes their choice with Lloyd managing the project and ultimately, the fabulous final reveal.

"Power House" (working title)
Produced by Magilla Entertainment with Brian Flanagan, Laura Palumbo Johnson and Matthew Ostom as Executive Producers.
Tiana Von Johnson is the founder of a luxury real estate agency in New York, the first to be owned by an African-American woman. She and her team of power agents sell some of the most glamorous and upscale multi-million dollar properties every day. "Power House" follows this team that works hard and plays even harder, where the rule of thumb is - you're only as good as your last sale.

"Reconstructing Beverly Hills" (working title)
Produced by Bunim-Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Rachel Speiser Schwartz as Executive Producers.
Each episode follows patients who have experienced the nightmare of plastic surgeries gone horribly wrong. From the double bubble breast augmentation complication, to collapsed nose jobs, to severe disfiguration from an amateur attempt at liposuction, "Reconstructing Beverly Hills" features heartbreaking patient stories and the Beverly Hills plastic surgeons who restore their bodies and spirits.

"Selita" (working title)
Produced by 51 Minds with Chris Abrego, Ben Samek and Rabih Gholam as Executive Producers.
This docu-series follows supermodel Selita Ebanks as she embarks on a new chapter in her life at the age of 30. After her two-year relationship with TV personality Terrence J ends, Selita's focus shifts to expanding her career beyond modeling to launching a clothing line.

"Style Junkies" (working title)
Produced by Schweet Entertainment with Rob Worsoff, Jack Osbourne and Brian Wendel as Executive Producers.
"Style Junkies" follows over-the-top fashion-obsessed individuals as they indulge in their outlandish fashion fixations. Whether it's a Louboutin collection that takes over every room of a house or a beloved pet with a triple-digit couture wardrobe, this comedic series will capture fashion addicts at their finest.
