Talent from MTV Hit Series "Awkward" and "Girl Code" to Dish on the Delicious Drama Throughout Each Episode

New York, NY (June 26, 2013) - MTV is going retro once again this summer with the return of pop culture smash hits, "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills." The "RetroMTV Brunch" marathon will kick off with the very first episode of "Laguna Beach" on Monday, July 8 from 9:00 a.m. ET/PT until 12:00 p.m. ET/PT. Beginning Tuesday, July 9, the marathon will air every weekday from 8:00 a.m. ET/PT until 12:00 p.m. ET/PT through Friday, August 9 as viewers get to relive seasons one and two of "Laguna Beach" and the full run of "The Hills." Fans of "The Hills," will want to tune-in on Friday, August 9 at 11:30a.m ET/PT as MTV will debut the never-before-aired alternate ending to the series.

During the marathon, stars from the MTV hit series, "Awkward" and "Girl Code" will provide commentary and interviews in celebration of "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills." Join Molly Tarlov, Jillian Rose Reed, Nicole Byer and Nessa as they dish on their favorite fights, couples and moments that took the pop culture world by storm.

"Laguna Beach" (Seasons 1 - 2): In 2004, MTV unleashed the first season of "Laguna Beach," which featured gorgeous teens leading glamorous lives, and viewers discovered what lay beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect community. "Laguna Beach's" Lauren (aka LC), Lo, Christina, Kristin, Morgan, Trey, Talan and Stephen grew up together, and the tight-knit clique granted MTV an all-access pass inside their lives. From spring break to prom to graduation, the "Laguna Beach" posse took us along for the ride of their lives and showed us the real-life drama that unfolded during their pivotal senior year in high school. The de facto leader of the season 1 "Laguna Beach" bunch was down-to-earth LC, who harbored a lifelong crush on her surfer friend Stephen. But Stephen was sort of going out with LC's "rival," Kristin. So wherever the three of them went, drama followed. Season 2 of "Laguna Beach" continued to follow the lives of LC, Stephen and Kristin -- but this time around Kristin was the leader of the pack. After spending just one semester in San Francisco, LC was back in Laguna and Stephen occasionally dropped in to stir things up between her and Kristin.

"The Hills" (Seasons 1 - 6): When season two of "Laguna Beach" ended, MTV followed LC to "The Hills" of L.A. to watch her as she embarked upon a new fabulous journey. It's one thing to be young and beautiful in Laguna Beach. It's another to be young and beautiful in the city that values it most. "The Hills" followed Lauren ("LC" from "Laguna Beach") as she made the move from her O.C. digs to Los Angeles, where she chased her dreams of entering the fashion business while balancing a full course load at college and a full social calendar. Through Lauren we met her new roommate, Heidi, who aspired to make the LA nightlife her whole life, Audrina, a receptionist who moved to LA in hopes of becoming a model/actress, and Whitney, Lauren's fashionable co-worker and confidante at Teen Vogue. These four girls took full advantage of being in the "in" crowd of LA, hopping from club, to party, to hot restaurant as they lived the Hollywood lifestyle to the fullest.
