A Master of Juggling Celebrity Egos, Discovering Untapped Talent and Running a Drama-Filled Office of Young Staffers, Costello's Career Ambitions and Over-the-Top Personality Let Nothing or No One Get in the Way of Her Success

Los Angeles - September 17, 2013 - In today's world of social media, 15 minutes of fame can happen in an instant, but to make it last a lifetime, Hollywood hopefuls need one thing: Marki Costello. Whether at home with her family or running the show at her business, Creative Management Entertainment Group, one of the busiest and most successful management firms in Los Angeles, Costello is the queen bee. Costello, the granddaughter of Hollywood royalty, famed comedian Lou Costello, knows the exact formula for turning nobodies into somebodies. A highly sought after manager who has worked with countless Emmy Award winners and has coached the likes of Kelly Osbourne and CeeLo Green, a best-selling author and the creator of the world renowned Hosting Bootcamp seminar, she has been the go-to talent guru for up and coming television hosts for over two decades. As her clients and staff can attest, Costello's loud, direct and in your face approach to life is the secret to her success and has consistently proven one thing: What Marki Costello wants, Marki Costello gets. "The Drama Queen" premieres Sunday, November 10 at 10:00pm on E!

"With a Hollywood pedigree that dates back for generations, Marki Costello knows firsthand what it takes to make it in the cut throat entertainment business," said Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming & Development, E! "The road to fame starts with Marki and if talent can survive her unfiltered, hyper, honest point of view, they might just make it. But either way, it is fun to watch."

"The Drama Queen" will take viewers inside Costello's world as she's hard at work not just building entertainment careers but building brands and teaching her clients how to be stars. Taking up the majority of her time is her "second family" at the office filled with a slew of characters from her demanding clients, up and coming talent associates and impressionable young interns, all vying for her attention and accolades. Costello recently launched a kids division and stress levels have never been higher when she butts heads with some over-bearing and demanding stage moms.

While Costello brings her "Marki magic" to her business on a daily basis, her long-term artist boyfriend Tommy takes the reigns when it comes to the daily charge of their young son Finn. Giving up control at home to Tommy isn't easy and along with her teenage son Lucas, Costello makes sure she knows everything going on at all times concerning her loved ones. As with all working moms, she faces the same challenges as everyone else and works tirelessly to balance her extremely busy work life with her equally demanding family life.

"The Drama Queen" premieres Sunday, November 10 at 10:00pm and is executive produced by Jeff Collins, Mike Aho and Michael Hammond for Collins Avenue Productions, with Andrew Perry serving as Executive Producer.
