Hold 'Em, Fold 'Em ... It's All in the Cards as E! Presents 'Hollywood Poker Night'

New Series Featuring a Star-Studded Evening Highlighted With a Little Cards, a Little Conversation and an Exclusive Home Tour

That '70s Show's Laura Prepon to Team With Flutie Entertainment, Sara Chazen and Joel Klein as Executive Producers of the Series

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11 -- This March, E! is shuffling the deck on the celebrity poker genre with the launch of "Hollywood Poker Night," a new hour-long weekly series that takes viewers inside our favorite celebrity homes for more than just an innocent game of cards, announced Ted Harbert, President & CEO, E! Networks.

"'Hollywood Poker Night' is E!'s signature take on the celebrity poker craze," said Harbert. "The series offers the fun and challenge of cards, but will also gives viewers a unique glimpse into the lives and homes of some of today's top young stars."

From the diamonds in their hands to those on their fingers, "Hollywood Poker Night" offers viewers more then just a friendly game of poker as three stars and three of their best buddies ante-up for an evening of cards, conversation and good company. Each week, different celebrity hosts take viewers on an exclusive tour of their home, sharing their favorite places to relax, work out, and find solace away from their busy Hollywood lives. After the tour, the fun really begins as the players saddle up for some real Texas Hold'em. Although most celebrities are poker-faced about their private lives, there's no telling what personal info they'll deal up as they kickback and chitchat amongst friends. From their love lives, to families, to friends, work and hobbies, these players lay more than just their cards on the table!

Featured celebrities in the series include Macaulay Culkin, Andy Dick, Shannon Elizabeth ("American Pie"), Mila Kunis ("That '70s Show"), Seth Green ("The Italian Job"), Tom Green, Chris Masterson ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Danny Masterson ("That '70s Show"), Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect"), Wilmer Valderrama ("That '70s Show"), and skaters Tony Hawk and Bam Margera.

Laura Prepon ("That '70s Show"), Flutie Entertainment, Sara Chazen and Joel Klein serve as Executive Producers for the series.

Laura Prepon has been praised for her honest portrayal of Donna on "That '70s Show," which marked her network television debut. She has received critical acclaim for her performance, and Entertainment Weekly called her a "rising star" and "wonderfully deadpan." Prepon recently wrapped production of the independent film "Deadly," which is slated for release in 2005. Prepon can be seen in the independent film "Lightning Bug," a drama thriller set in the South about a young boy who longs to escape the misery of his childhood and the misunderstanding of his hometown. Prepon plays "Angevin Duvel," a young girl who can't seem to let go of small-town life. Prepon starred in the film "Slackers" opposite Jason Schwartzman, James King and Devon Sawa. Her other film credits include a leading role in the independent feature "Southlander" opposite Beck and Hank Williams III. She also co-starred in "The Pornographer: A Love Story" with Martin Donovan, Kathleen Chalfant and Irene Jacob. Prepon got her break portraying the lead character on the groundbreaking Internet series "They Go On." She has also appeared in numerous theatrical presentations, including "A Woman of Property" and "Ascension Day." Although an East-coaster at heart, Prepon currently lives in Los Angeles with her dogs, Cody and Lambert.
