Showtime Heats Up In July With Special Event Programming Every Saturday Night

LOS ANGELES, June 23 -- In July, Showtime will be putting on some fireworks of its own with a showcase of the network's hottest event programming featuring music heavyweights like USHER, Jay-Z, and Britney Spears and comedy kings George Lopez and Christopher Titus. The encore special events will air every Saturday night at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

The special event showcase will begin on July 9th with comedian Christopher Titus who shatters the institution of family while mining comedy from tragedy and his real-life childhood memories, including living with an alcoholic father and a suicidal mother. The special NORMAN ROCKWELL IS BLEEDING was taped live at UCLA's Freud Playhouse on the university's campus in Westwood, California.

Then on July 16th Showtime will offer a double feature with an encore presentation of the concert event of the year: One Night One Star Usher Live. This concert is the multi-Grammy(R) winner's only televised concert in 2005 and features songs from Usher's chart-topping album, "Confessions." This will be followed at 11:35 by Multi-platinum recording artist Jay-Z's first full length, televised concert JAY-Z IN CONCERT, which aired on Showtime in 2003. The concert was the first time a hip-hop artist had a full-length concert broadcast live on television.

On July 23, multi-platinum superstar Britney Spears will turn up the heat in a full-length, concert taped live during THE ONYX HOTEL TOUR 2004. The showcase will wrap up on July 30 with the critically-acclaimed comedy special, GEORGE LOPEZ: WHY YOU CRYING? which was Lopez's first solo televised special. This hour-long special was taped before a standing-room-only live audience at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, California.
