WILLIAM SLEDD TO STAR IN BRAVO REALITY PILOT "HEY BITCHES"

BRAVO GREENLIGHTS "HEY BITCHES," FEATURING OUTZONETV.COM PERSONALITY AND YOUTUBE PHENOMEMON WILLIAM SLEDD

Reality Pilot Follows Web Icon As He Contemplates Making the Leap From Paducah, Kentucky To The World Of New York High Fashion

NEW YORK, December 4, 2007 � Bravo announced today that William Sledd, a 24-year-old Paducah, Kentucky native best known for his irreverent web commentary about fashion and pop culture, will star in "Hey Bitches" (working title), a reality pilot produced by Realand Productions for NBCU Domestic Television Distribution and Bravo. Sledd, who currently appears on Bravo's OUTzoneTV.com's web series "Ask a Gay Man," where "Hey Bitches!" is his signature greeting, has been touted as one of the Internet's buzziest personalities, garnering a huge following from fans all over the country including Tony Award-winning actress Christine Ebersole. The pilot will follow Sledd as he contemplates making the leap from his hometown of Paducah, Kentucky, to the world of high fashion in New York. If you've ever watched one of William's videos you know that he can dish it out, but the question is can he take it?

"With over 80,000 subscribers and more than three million channel views to date, William's sense of humor and style have clearly struck a chord with the American public," said Frances Berwick, Bravo's Executive Vice President, Programming & Production. "The response to William on OUTzoneTV.com has been overwhelming; his charm and sense of fun are infectious. People are asking to see more of him and his life."

Armed with a video camera and a mission, Sledd's weekly vlogs (which are several minutes in length) tackle thorny fashion and pop culture topics and offer witty advice about the fashion/style issues of the moment. The baby-faced Sledd, who the Los Angeles Times called "playfully catty and a little bossy," leans toward preppy in his own choice of style, admitting that "it just really bothers me when people look like crap." He first made headlines one year ago when his eighth YouTube installment, exploring the world of denim, was watched more than two million times and quickly thrust him into the national spotlight.

"Hey Bitches" is produced by Realand Productions for NBCU Domestic Television Distribution and Bravo.
