"THE GREAT CHRISTMAS LIGHT FIGHT" PREMIERES DECEMBER 9 ON ABC

First Reality-Competition Program of its Kind is Produced by FremantleMedia North America

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's" Michael Moloney & Sabrina Soto to Judge

"The Great Christmas Light Fight" is a new competition series in which 20 families from across America will decorate their homes to the extreme for Christmas - in ways that would certainly make even Clark Griswold envious - with a total of $250,000 in prizing ($50,000 won each week). "The Great Christmas Light Fight" will air on MONDAYS, DECEMBER 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT), DECEMBER 16 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) and DECEMBER 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) with back-to-back episodes on those two nights. Michael Moloney & Sabrina Soto (both from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition") will serve as judges for the series.

In the first Christmas lights competition of its kind for television, 4 families will compete each week to transform their homes for the holidays in just 21 days. These 20 families were chosen through an extensive nationwide search based on their previous elaborate Christmas light displays, incredible choreography and over-the-top designs.

"The Great Christmas Light Fight" comes from FremantleMedia North America ("American Idol," "America's Got Talent"). Executive Producers for the series are Brady Connell, Max Swedlow, Thom Beers and Jennifer Mullin.
