MTV Spices Up The Sunday Stew With New Ashton Kutcher Series

�You�ve Got A Friend� Debuts At 9:30pm ET/PT Flanked By Returning Favorites �Pimp My Ride� At 9pm ET/PT And �Viva La Bam� At 10pm ET/PT

New York, NY (October 1, 2004) � After a sizzling second season, MTV�s Sunday Stew will return on October 24th with a recipe of returning favorites and the all-new series �You�ve Got A Friend.� Executive produced by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg of Katalyst Films, �You�ve Got A Friend� is guaranteed to make the Stew simmer. Although few details have been released about the new series, when asked, the elusive Kutcher simply stated, �For $15,000, would you give the creators of �Punk�d� 48 hours of your time to mess with your life?� The answer will be revealed when �You�ve Got A Friend� premieres at 9:30pm ET/PT on Sunday, October 24th.

�Ashton assures me that �You�ve Got A Friend� will take messing with people�s heads to a new level,� said Lois Curren, EVP of MTV Series Entertainment. �I have full confidence that this new show along with �Viva La Bam� and Pimp My Ride� on Sunday nights will connect with the MTV audience in a big way.�

MTV�s �You�ve Got A Friend� will be flanked by returning Sunday Stew favorites �Pimp My Ride� at 9pm ET/PT and �Viva La Bam� at 10pm ET/PT. After an unforgettable first season of turning less-than-luxurious rides into pimped out masterpieces, MTV will head back into the garage with rapper and car enthusiast Xzibit and the guys from West Coast Customs to make the dreams of a few young automotively-challenged fans come true. Also returning are the antics of skateboarding pro and former �Jackass� star Bam Margera as he lives at home and wreaks havoc on his unsuspecting friends and family in a new season of �Viva La Bam.� The entire cast of characters is back to see what will happen next, and so too are some new familiar faces including Tommy Lee, Dave Grohl, Pharrell Williams & N.E.R.D, Method Man, Jack Osbourne and Johnny Knoxville who all stop by Bam�s place to pay a visit.

�You�ve Got A Friend� was created by Tiger Aspect and originally aired in the UK on channel E4 as �My New Best Friend.�
