Burbank, CA (February 8, 2005) � ABC Family has ordered eight episodes of the original one-hour scripted series BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE (working title), it was announced today by Paul Lee, president, ABC Family. The series, from Sony Pictures Television, follows the highs and lows of two sisters and their mother as they move from a small town in New Mexico to New York City. The series will begin production Spring 2005 and is slated for a two-hour premiere in Summer 2005.

"This is a great project, it�s a smart coming-of-age story about two sisters who move from New Mexico to the big city � we think it�ll be a great addition to ABC Family," said Paul Lee.

�We are thrilled to be producing ABC Family�s first original scripted series,� said Zack VanAmburg, senior vice president, development and cable programming for Sony Pictures Television. �Based on the strength of Michael Rauch�s script, the network has ordered eight episodes�a tremendous show of faith in his talents and commitment to the material.�

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE is the fictional story of the Kerr family - three dynamic women in transitional periods of their lives. When Sophie receives a scholarship to attend a prestigious private school in New York, the girls convince their mother that they should all move to the city from their quiet hometown in New Mexico. Recently abandoned by her husband (who left his family for his secretary), 40-year-old Lynn Kerr is up for the challenge of not only becoming a single parent to Karen (18) and Sophie (16), but giving New York a try. Sophie quickly discovers that her new high school is not the easiest place to fit in. The school is ruled by a popular crowd of wealthy society kids known as Beautiful People, the BP's. Karen, an aspiring model, and Lynn, who gets a job in a dress shop, also find the city full of challenges, but with each other's support, all three women venture on a journey of self discovery.

The series will be executive produced by Michael Rauch, who wrote the pilot, and Paul Stupin ("Dawson's Creek"). BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE will be produced by Sony Pictures Television.
