[via press release from UPN]

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING POP ICON BRITNEY SPEARS AND HUSBAND KEVIN FEDERLINE COME TO UPN

New Series To Share Their Personal Love Story Through Private Home Videos And Revealing Interviews

MTV Music Group To Take Exclusive Second Window for the Show

Grammy Award-winning pop icon Britney Spears and husband Kevin Federline have reached an agreement with UPN to broadcast a new television series that shares their personal love story though exclusive, never-before-seen private home videos they shot themselves during their courtship, engagement and wedding. The series will include six episodes to be broadcast on UPN later this season, it was announced today by Dawn Ostroff, President, UPN.

This fun, uniquely personal series, shot mostly by Britney and Kevin with their own camera, will give viewers a rare glimpse inside the couple's relationship and life together. The footage begins shortly after Britney and Kevin first met in Los Angeles and headed off to Europe together on tour, leading up to and including their wedding day. UPN is also shooting new footage and commentary with Britney and Kevin that will guide viewers through their story. The show will have an exclusive second window on MTV Music Group channels.

Britney stated, "I am so excited about the series. From the day that Kevin and I met, there have been constant rumors and inaccurate speculation about our lives together. I feel that last year the tabloids ran my life and I am really excited about showing my fans what really happened rather than all the stories, which have been misconstrued by journalists in the past. As I mentioned before, I am now going to be expressing my personal life through art. This series will show us falling in love and all the adventures that went on overseas during the European leg of my Onyx Hotel tour. It's going to be an exciting ride." Kevin feels this project will speak for itself. Simply put, he says, "It is a documentation of love."

"Britney Spears is a superstar who is very popular with UPN's viewers, making her and Kevin's show in this format a perfect fit for our network's audience and programming sensibilities," said Ostroff. "As we all know, Britney and Kevin's life together has been played out in front of the public through Internet speculation, the gossip columnists and entertainment magazines, but now, for the first time, their millions of fans will get to see and hear the couple's real story on UPN as told directly by them."

"From her cutting edge videos to her multi-platinum albums, Britney has been a dynamic force in the music industry, MTV and VH1, and we are excited to partner with her on this special project," said Brian Graden, President of Entertainment, MTV Music Group and President of LOGO.

The deal includes repeat broadcasts of the series on MTV and/or VH1 music channels, which will run after the initial UPN broadcast. In addition, leading into the big finale on UPN, the MTV Music Group channels will run a marathon of the already televised episodes.

UPN has had incredible success with alternative programming and is home to several high-quality brands, including AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL and THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT. AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL has emerged as the most popular series in UPN history with young adults and women. Currently in its fourth cycle, AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL ranks first in its time period among women 18-34.
