TWO NEW REALITY SERIES JOIN THE CBS LINEUP IN JANUARY

"Wickedly Perfect" Premieres Thursday, Jan. 6, 8:00-9:00 PM

"The Will" Debuts Saturday, Jan. 8, 8:00-9:00 PM

CBS announced January premiere dates for two new mid-season programs -- the reality series WICKEDLY PERFECT, the search for the next great style maker, and THE WILL, a new reality series from Mike Fleiss, who describes it as "reality TV meets 'Dynasty.'"

The search for the newest authority on at-home living begins on Thursday, Jan. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) with the premiere of WICKEDLY PERFECT.

Hosted by Emmy Award-winning journalist Joan Lunden, WICKEDLY PERFECT pits 12 people with a creative knack for the finer things in life in a no-holds-barred competition to crown the country's new authority on at-home living. These perfection-obsessed contestants, whose motto is "anything you can do, I can do better," will compete in different areas of beautifying the home and entertaining, including party planning, gardening, cooking, baking, sewing, crafts, floral arranging and decorating.

In addition to chronicling the sometimes funny, sometimes factious relationships that develop among the tightly wound, extremely competitive participants, each week a contestant will be eliminated from their luxurious estate located in New England.

The winner will receive numerous prizes, including six appearances on "The Early Show" on CBS, a development deal for a lifestyle-oriented television show and a publishing deal with Atria Books, a division of premier publisher Simon & Schuster.

Renowned chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill), Emmy Award-nominated stylist David Evangelista ("The Rosie O'Donnell Show") and best-selling author Candace Bushnell ("Sex and the City" and "Trading Up") will serve as judges.

The series is produced by LMNO Productions. Eric Schotz and Bill Paolantonio are executive producers.

THE WILL premieres Saturday, Jan. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

In this new series, a wealthy patriarch will put a large portion of his estate up for grabs as 10 potential heirs, both family and friends, compete against each other in both physical and mental challenges in an effort to win rewards and stave off elimination. As each potential heir fights to stay in the game, they'll also need to stay in the patriarch's good graces in order to survive. Family reunions will never be the same as we finally discover if blood is truly thicker than water when the last member standing wins the inheritance and claims the title of most deserving heir.

THE WILL is produced by Next Entertainment, in association with Telepictures Productions. Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette") is executive producer.
