BRAVO AND HEARST ENTERTAINMENT PARTNER FOR A NEW DOCUMENTARY SERIES BASED ON THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

NEW YORK - April 26, 2005 - Bravo has inked a deal with Hearst Entertainment, Inc. to produce six, one-hour episodes of the first documentary series set in the newsroom of one of the world's largest newspapers, it was announced today by Lauren Zalaznick, president of Bravo, and Bruce Paisner, president of Hearst Entertainment. The series is scheduled to premiere on Bravo in 2006.

"The Daily News" (working title) follows the editorial staff of the New York Daily News and provides a behind-the-scenes perspective of a working newsroom at one of the largest newspapers in the U.S. Filmed with the intimacy of a documentary, with total and complete access, but structured and edited like a traditional dramatic series, "The Daily News" presents a handful of key editors and reporters as they cope with deadlines and the competition and pressures associated with journalism at a big-city tabloid. Each episode of "The Daily News" follows four to five characters as they track and pursue New York City's most exciting stories. Against the backdrop of a vicious tabloid war with a competing paper and the unrelenting deadlines that are a part of their world, each character will battle for stories while trying to keep a handle on their personal lives.

"Bravo continues to find new opportunities to redefine arts and culture, demonstrating the creative process across all areas of pop culture," said Zalaznick. "This series provides a unique and unexpected perspective into the working lives of editors and journalists. We are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with Hearst Entertainment in this unprecedented series which will provide a true 'fly on the wall' look at the inner workings of a leading daily newspaper."

"Hearst Entertainment is excited to be in partnership with two great media outlets on this project: the New York Daily News and Bravo," said Paisner. "Les Goodstein, Martin Dunn, Michael Cooke and their teams run one of the most exciting newspapers in America, and now Bravo viewers will witness this world firsthand. For Hearst Entertainment, this project represents an important step forward in its reality production business and will be followed by other cutting edge dramatic reality programs."

"The Daily News" will be produced by Hearst Entertainment Inc. in association with Bravo. Hearst Entertainment's, Jerry Shevick, executive vice president, and James Deutch, vice president, will be executive producers of the series. About Hearst Entertainment Inc.
