VH1 BRINGS BACK THE HUNKS OF THE 80'S AND 90'S IN NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "CONFESSIONS OF A TEEN IDOL"

The Series Will Showcase Seven Former Teen Idols in a Never-Before-Seen Examination of Fame and Its Consequences

"Confessions of a Teen Idol" Premieres Sunday, January 4 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on VH1

LOS ANGELES, CA, DECEMBER 8, 2008 - It's comeback time for seven of the most famous hunks of the 80's and 90's. These men had it all- the fame, the money, the parties, and the girls. In their prime, these former idols not only graced the covers of teen magazines, but they could barely walk down the street without getting mobbed by a group of adoring fans. But those days of fame are now a distant memory. Today, these former heartthrobs have the opportunity to confront their career and personal mistakes and try to make their way back in to the limelight in "Confessions of a Teen Idol" premiering on VH1 on Sunday, January 4 at 8:00 PM.* The eight-part series features Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon), David Chokachi (Baywatch), Billy Hufsey (Fame), Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch), Eric Nies (MTV's The Real World and The Grind), Jamie Walters (Beverly Hills 90210), and Adrian Zmed (TJ Hooker, Grease 2). Each hour-long episode provides a rare, never-before-seen look at fame and its consequences as the guys live together, forming a unique and exclusive support group. "This is the world's most unique men's club. Even the producers are all guys who were famous as teenagers. They speak a different language and this show allows them to not only share their stories of past fame with each other, but forces them to really explore their hopes and fears about daring to want that fame back as grown men," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, VH1. "This is not like any reality show you've ever seen before. It is not a competition and there are no eliminations. But there is refreshingly honest (and at times very dramatic) look at the addiction of fame and a real opportunity for each one of these guys to get that stardom back." Under the guidance of television icon Scott Baio, child star-turned-producer Jason Hervey and celebrity psychology expert Cooper Lawrence, these former heartthrobs will be given all of the tools and connections necessary to make a comeback or be faced with the reality that fame is a lot tougher the second time around. The guys will learn to let go of their past fame, reclaim control of their careers and look ahead to their futures. "I really feel that it's important for people to know what fame is like, and who can give better insight than two guys who have lived through the experience like Jason and myself? We've been there and know what it's like to be in the guys' shoes. We have both learned how to leave the teen idol days behind and move forward with life and our careers," said Scott Baio, former teen idol and an executive producer for the series. "When we were developing the show, Jason and I knew that VH1 would be a perfect home for it, we have done shows with them in the past and I think this series will add a new, very real element to their programming and set the stage for future adaptations of this unique franchise." In the end these former teen idols will be armed with the skills, knowledge and confidence to re-launch their careers in the entertainment industry and chase after one more shot at fame. "Confessions of a Teen Idol" is a co-production from Bischoff Hervey Entertainment and 3 Ball Productions. The series was developed by Eric Bischoff, Jason Hervey, Scott Baio and Michael Swerdlick and is Executive Produced by Eric Bischoff, Jason Hervey, Scott Baio, Michael Swerdlick and JD Roth. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Noah Pollack, and Leah Horwitz oversee the series for VH1.
