Series Premieres

MY FAIR BRADY -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 at 9:30 PM ET/PT

"Here's the story of a man named Brady who is living with his supermodel girl ... ."

This is the theme song for VH1's latest love story, "My Fair Brady." Christopher Knight, known as Peter Brady of the 70's phenomenon, "The Brady Bunch" and Adrianne Curry the first-ever, "America's Next Top Model" caught each other's eye during VH1's "Surreal Life 4." Now, almost a year later they are still in love and living together, although the twice-married Chris loves Adrianne he is reluctant to marry her. Adrianne, on the other hand, has been ready to marry Chris since she laid eyes on him and now she's putting on the pressure. Only time, fights, tears, sex, and a special appearance by Florence Henderson will tell if this relationship can move forward before it self-destructs.

BREAKING BONADUCE -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 at 10:30 PM ET/PT

This series is a dramatic, honest, and compelling look into the complex relationship between Danny Bonaduce, his wife Gretchen and their two young children Isabella (10-years old) and Dante (4-years old). Meeting and marrying seven hours into their first date, the Bonaduces, who have been together for fifteen years, have faced addiction, infidelity and Danny's "death wish" antics, but can they continue to survive as a couple? VH1 endeavored to tape a show about their unique marriage and family life but as production ensued the series took on a life of its own. Told through the unique lens of their couple's therapy sessions, nothing is held back and the emotions are all real as they both deal with Danny's descent into drug use, drinking binges, sex addiction and his resulting 30-day stay in rehab.

STORYTELLERS: DAVE MATTHEWS BAND -- PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 10, 2005 at 10 PM ET/PT

"Dave Matthews Band" took their performance from the arenas they typically play in to a more intimate setting for a taping of VH1 Storytellers on Tuesday, May 17 at the BAM Harvey Theatre in Brooklyn. Viewers will get a unique opportunity to hear the inspiration behind such hits as "Where Are You Going?" "Ants Marching," ""Too Much," and from their new album Stand Up, "American Baby," "Dreamgirl," "Steady As We Go," and "Lousiana Bayou." The show will follow in the "Storytellers" format and include questions from fans as well as a new interview with the band about their latest album and the stories behind the songs.

"I LOVE THE 80'S: 3D" -- PREMIERES OCTOBER 24 - 28, 2005

We're back, we're funnier than ever, and because we haven't run out of ideas, we're taking it to the third dimension, with gnarly special effects that'll-like-blow your mind! That's right. Put on your 3D glasses and check out that chick's bangs, this is "I Love The 80s: 3D!!!" "I Love the 80's: 3D" brings you a skewed view of the music, movies, TV shows, fashions, fads, and trends that defined pop culture during every year of the decade. From Oak Ridge Boys to Fine Young Cannibals, Jheri-curl to Rat tails, Cannonball Run to Steel Magnolias. The tearjerkers ... the tacky ... and everything in between. It's 80's-style technology with a 21st century twist. With all your favorite comics, rock stars and celebs coming together to wax poetic about the essential '80s experience, viewers will be bombarded with every aspect of '80s pop culture in amazing 3D.
