[via press release from The WB]


Burbank, CA - November 22, 2004


From Executive Producer Mike Fleiss Comes The Ultimate Wish Fulfillment Dating Series

The WB Network will kick off the holiday season with the premiere of BIG MAN ON CAMPUS (BMOC). The new six-episode reality dating series featuring college co-eds will premiere on Wednesday, December 15 (9:00-10:00pm ET), it was announced today by David Janollari, President, Entertainment of The WB.

Shot on the beautiful University of Central Florida campus in Orlando, BMOC executive producer Mike Fleiss and his team searched among 41,000 students to find 15 co-eds who were looking for love. Then, the 15 lucky ladies discovered that they would be conducting their own campus-wide search to ultimately choose one special gentleman as their BMOC.

Once the young women choose the guy, it will be up to the BMOC to turn the tables on them to find his perfect match - and that's just the beginning. In subsequent episodes, the BMOC will get to know these young women through a series of group and one-on-one college gatherings and romantic dates. These special outings include pool, toga and slumber parties, a bikini car wash, a football game and tailgating at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. The BMOC will also be introduced to - and scrutinized by - the girls' parents, who are there to make sure he is the right man for their daughter. Every episode will be filled with romance, fun and surprises as the BMOC searches for his Campus Queen.

Our BMOC follows a gradual process of elimination; he starts by narrowing the field from 15 girls to ten, presenting them with a fraternity-type pin. He will continue to eliminate girls each week by asking them to return their pins. Ultimately, he will present the girl who has captured his heart with the final pin.

The series provides a unique, in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at college dating and into the lives of each participant involved. At the end of the journey, the BMOC will have made new friends and quite possibly found true love.

BIG MAN ON CAMPUS is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions. Executive produced by Mike Fleiss, Co-Executive Producer Leslie Radakovich and Supervising Producer Tracy Mazuer.
