NEW SEASON FINALE WILL AIR ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 25 AT 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK -� August 5, 2005 -� Due to the overwhelming success and popularity of the hit cinema verit� style series "Being Bobby Brown," Bravo has added two additional episodes to the schedule. The new episodes will air in its regular 10 p.m. ET/PT Thursday timeslot with the season finale airing on August 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo.

"The first eight episodes of 'Being Bobby Brown' have kept Bravo viewers buzzing and have even helped contribute to adding new catch-phrases to our pop-culture vernacular," said Zalaznick. "This is a highly compelling and engaging series, and we hope two new episodes will satisfy viewers' appetites for more Bobby and Whitney.

Viewers will continue get the inside look at "Being Bobby Brown" in the two additional episodes. The episode premiering Thursday, August 18, will take an inside look at Bobby and Whitney's Atlanta and New Jersey homes. The season finale, premiering August 25, will take a behind the scenes look at "Being Bobby Brown" showcasing some of the favorite moments from the series and will also reveal never before seen footage from Bobby's life.

As one of the hottest R&B stars of the late '80s and early '90s, Brown is credited for popularizing New Jack Swing, a hybrid style of R&B/soul music combined with rap and Hip-Hop rhythms. A founding member of New Edition, Brown left the group in 1986 to embark on a solo career. Brown's second solo album, "Don't Be Cruel," which was released in 1988, landed him on the cutting-edge of modern R&B and spawned the no. 1 hit "My Prerogative," and other chart-toppers such as "Roni," and "Every Little Step," which earned him a Grammy in 1989 for Best Rhythm and Blues Vocal Performance, Male. Brown's other hits include the "Ghostbusters II" theme "On Our Own," "She Ain't Worth It," "Humpin'Around," "Good Enough," "Get Away," and "That's the Way Love Is."

"Being Bobby Brown" is co-produced by B2 Entertainment and Brownhouze Entertainment for Bravo. Tracey Baker-Simmons is executive producer and Wanda Shelley is producer for B2 Entertainment. Bobby Brown and his brother Tommy Brown are co-executive producers of the series.
