In TLC's New Series GOING HOLLYWOOD, Academy Award Winners and Grammy-Winning Artist School Young Interns in Show Biz
Eight-Part Series to Premiere in Fall 2005
LOS ANGELES, May 31 -- In TLC's GOING HOLLYWOOD, an eight-
part series slated to premiere this fall, young entertainment industry
hopefuls are thrown into the show business fire as each is chosen for a high-
profile Hollywood internship with some of entertainment's biggest stars. But
before they live the high life, they have to start at the bottom. The
respective companies of Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey, legendary
producer Robert Evans and hip-hop star/actor Method Man will host these young
interns in GOING HOLLYWOOD.
In each hour-long episode, GOING HOLLYWOOD shows what it takes to break
into the business. Through our interns, the series delves into the day-to-day
business of being an A-list celebrity in Los Angeles -- not just the red
carpets, the parties, the interviews and the movies, but what it takes to be
successful in film, television, music and online. Each intern will work for
his/her mentor's companies, including The Robert Evans Company (Robert Evans),
TriggerStreet.com/Trigger Street Productions (Kevin Spacey) and Method Man
Enterprises (Method Man).
"The Hollywood featured in GOING HOLLYWOOD is a place few have seen, and
is a refreshing take on what we all believe constitutes 'celebrity,'" said
David Abraham, executive vice president and general manager, TLC. "Beyond the
glamorous premieres and jet-set travel is a world where grit, ambition and,
above all, hard work, are the stuff that dreams are made of. TLC will bring
viewers that world, where success comes only at the price of sweat."
Followed every waking hour, seven days a week, the GOING HOLLYWOOD interns
are under the microscope of Hollywood's top power brokers. They struggle with
the stressful demands of their new jobs and their new city in one of the most
competitive professions in the world, all the while dealing with the high
drama and personality conflicts inherent in living with other people. The
whims of Hollywood can be demanding, fickle, outlandish, lavish and
unpredictable ... will these interns be up to it?
From the sublime to the ridiculous, the tearful to the hilarious, these
ambitious amateurs will endure it all. Their journey through the Hollywood
high life will balance out with the reality of an intern's life -- a box-sized
apartment that they will all share. Will they have what it takes to survive
the cutthroat world of show business? Three interns are GOING HOLLYWOOD ...
but how many will be staying?
