TV Land Is Chasing Farrah in Reality Series to Debut in March

Network Follows Iconic Actress in Six-Part Series Debuting Wednesday, March 23

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 14 -- TV Land will premiere Chasing Farrah, an original reality series that follows iconic Hollywood actress and sex symbol, Farrah Fawcett, as she goes about her daily life as one of the most recognized stars in the history of celebrity at 10 P.M. on Wednesday, March 23, 2005. The six-episode series will give viewers a rare glimpse into what her life is like in and out of the spotlight.

Throughout Chasing Farrah, viewers go on a wild ride with the jet-set actress as she travels from Hollywood to Miami to New York to her birthplace of Texas, replete with an entourage of managers, publicists and film crew in tow. Viewers will get a rare behind-the-scenes look at the actress, who skyrocketed to super-stardom in 1976 courtesy of her role in Charlie's Angels and further cemented her reputation as a sex symbol with the 1977 release of a poster featuring her in a one-piece swimsuit. Throughout the premiere episode, viewers will follow Farrah as she attends the U.S. Open in New York- where the tennis-loving Farrah caused a stir among such luminaries as Martina Navratilova and Maria Sharapova; as she parties with friend Alanna Stewart and as her management team tries to hire her an assistant.

Additional highlights which will be featured in Chasing Farrah include: Farrah on the town in Miami as she party-hops and tries to elude the paparazzi and Farrah's encounter with a group of New York City Firemen, whom she meets when her Manhattan shopping spree comes to a halt when she passes a store that's on fire. The special will also showcase Farrah as she deals with such ordinary issues as searching for a lost wallet, visiting her parents and getting head-to-toe salon treatments.

"So many of our perceptions of Farrah Fawcett are through the tabloids, quick sound bites on the news and her roles in film and television," explains Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land & Nick at Nite. "TV Land wants to take our viewers into the life of Farrah Fawcett to see what she's really about, since so few of us know what it's like to be a recognized Hollywood icon for your entire adult life. Chasing Farrah hopes to give our viewers a rare glimpse into her life away both on the red carpet and away from the spotlight."

The series is Executive Produced by Craig Nevius (Windmill Productions) alongside TV Land's Vice President of Development and Production, Sal Maniaci. Farrah Fawcett is represented by Evolution's Mark Burg and Talent Works' Harry Gold.

TV Land Productions was created in 2003 to develop original programming that complements the network's successful acquired programming slate. TV Land Productions has also produced The TV Land Awards Show: A Celebration of Classic TV (March 2003 and 2004) and the Emmy-nominated The Dick Van Dyke Show, Revisited, the network's first original special for broadcast, which premiered on CBS in May.
