Burbank, CA - November 16, 2004

"SUMMERLAND" STAR LORI LOUGHLIN TO HOST THE 6TH ANNUAL "FAMILY TELEVISION AWARDS" ON THE WB ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2004

Lori Loughlin, star, producer and co-creator of The WB Network's hit drama "Summerland," will host the FAMILY TELEVISION AWARDS, which will be filmed at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on December 1 to air on Thursday, December 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), it was announced today by David Janollari, President, Entertainment of The WB.

The WB will air the annual FAMILY TELEVISION AWARDS for the third consecutive year. The special will present awards for outstanding achievement in seven categories: drama, comedy, reality, movie, specials, actor and actress. Presenters include Christine Lahti ("Jack & Bobby"), Patricia Heaton ("Everybody Loves Raymond") and extreme sports star Tony Hawk. The special was produced and written by Barry Adelman and Ed Driscoll and directed by Chris Donovan.

The SIXTH ANNUAL FAMILY TELEVISION AWARDS (FTA) are an initiative of the Family Friendly Programming Forum. The FTA are the only awards in which the members of the Association of National Advertisers - major corporate marketers - recognize outstanding programming for family viewing.

The Forum was founded in 1998 by Andrea Alstrup, Corporate VP Advertising Johnson & Johnson. The effort was quickly joined by Procter & Gamble and 10 other major advertisers. Today it includes 45 companies, all members of the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. Its key goal is to promote the development and scheduling of movies, series, documentaries and information programs that are aired during hours when children and adults within a household are most likely to watch television together (8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.).

The Forum pursues this goal through several different initiatives:

- The Family Television Awards, which recognize outstanding family television

- A script development fund

- A scholarship program for students who work on family friendly projects

The WB Network was the first to sign on with the fund, resulting in the critically acclaimed comedy "Gilmore Girls" and the comedy/variety series "Steve Harvey's Big Time."

"Summerland," a family drama from producer Aaron Spelling, debuted on The WB on June 1, 2004 to record ratings. The series scored the best premiere on The WB since 2002, and achieved the highest-rated summer launch in The WB%s history. The drama will return to The WB's schedule in January 2005 with all new episodes. Lori Loughlin stars as Ava Gregory, a single independent fashion designer, whose life is changed when her sister and brother-in-law are killed in an accident, leaving Ava to raise their three children with help from her three closest friends.

"Summerland" is produced by Spelling Television, Inc., a Paramount/Viacom company with executive producers Remi Aubuchon ("24," "Lyon's Den"), Aaron Spelling and E. Duke Vincent.
