PAX TV REVOLUTIONIZES THE MAKEOVER SHOW WITH �XTREME FAKEOVERS,� AN ORIGINAL PRIMETIME SERIES PREMIERING MONDAY, APRIL 18 AT 8 P.M. ET/PT

-Award-Winning Hollywood �Master of Disguise� Kevin Yagher Transforms Ordinary Men and Women Into People Their Own Mothers Wouldn�t Recognize-

(West Palm Beach, FL � April 8, 2005) � PAX TV will premiere �Xtreme Fakeovers,� a new breed of comedic reality, combining the elements of full body makeovers and hidden camera TV, on Monday, April 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. In each weekly one-hour episode, two everyday people undergo a complete makeover, setting out to fool their unsuspecting family or friends, with the help of a skilled �fakeover� crew led by award-winning Hollywood make-up effects artist Kevin Yagher (�Aeon Flux,� �Face/Off,� �Hulk,� �Matrix� sequels). Using prosthetic techniques, body sculpting wardrobe and unique movie magic accessories, Yagher and his team miraculously transform men into women, young into old and ordinary people into cultural icons.

Once the makeovers are complete, the subjects receive a crash course on how to �walk the walk� and �talk the talk� from a veritable pit crew of fashionistas, coaches and craftsmen. Finally, it�s showtime when the newly minted men and women try to fool the people who know them best, with hidden cameras at the ready! Whether it�s for revenge, exoneration or just plain fun, the show�s incredible transformations reveal an often-surprising side of the subjects and their targets.

The 13-episode series will feature transformations of a young man into �Velvet,� a female professional wrestler, a 20-something Caucasian woman into an 80-year-old male Indian yoga instructor, a 35-year-old male into a 60-year-old woman and many more.

�Xtreme Fakeovers� is a production of Keller Productions and Woody Fraser Productions, with award-winning executive producers Eytan Keller (�American Gladiators,� �Celebrity Mole�) and Woody Fraser (�Good Morning America,� �The Mike Douglas Show�) as creators and executive producers.
