OXYGEN TAKES TO THE RUNWAY! ONE OF THE WORLD�S FIRST SUPERMODELS RETURNS TO TV WITH THE JANICE DICKINSON PROJECT (WORKING TITLE)

Oxygen Picks-Up 10-Episode Reality Series That Follows Notorious Model As She Starts Her Own Agency

------

NEW YORK, December 27, 2005 � Get ready to see a side of one of America�s first supermodels that no one�s seen before in The Janice Dickinson Project (Working Title), a reality series that follows Janice Dickinson (America�s Next Top Model) as she makes the transformation from model to mogul by starting her own Hollywood modeling agency. The series is scheduled to debut Spring 2006.

The 10-episode series from Krasnow Productions and FremantleMedia North America offers viewers an intimate view into Dickinson�s life as she tackles the grueling work of starting her own business and teaching a new generation of aspiring models the business from the ground up. Viewers watch as Dickinson juggles motherhood, champions her new models, and tries to run a profitable agency -- all while dealing with skepticism from the industry she helped to define. The show goes beyond Dickinson�s runway persona to show a woman on the verge of a new phase in her career and determined to redefine American beauty.

�We love Janice because she�s the quintessential Oxygen personality. She�s outrageous, in command and bigger than life. And there's nothing one note about her. She's a real person with dimension to her character. In this series we see a warm side of her with heart. We also see that she�s a true expert in her field,� says Debby Beece, Oxygen President of Programming. �She�s starting a new business with all its challenges, while trying to be a good mom and guide new models through a tough business. It�s a balancing act for her � and it�s fascinating to watch her as she goes through it.�

Seeking an untraditional and unique look, Dickinson auditions over 500 aspiring models. Drawing on her years of experience in the industry, Dickinson mentors candidates on look, style and composure, even taking their photos personally. Finally, she narrows the search to five models who become the first to be signed by her agency.

Stuart Krasnow for Krasnow Productions, and Janice Dickinson serve as executive producers for the series. Janice Dickinson, credited as one of the world�s �first supermodels,� is a model and photographer who was most recently seen as a judge on America�s Next Top Model.

Stuart Krasnow is a seasoned reality television producer who has served as executive producer for such programming as Average Joe, Dog Eat Dog and The Weakest Link. In conjunction with FremantleMedia North America, Krasnow founded Krasnow Productions in 2005.

The Janice Dickinson Project is managed by Aaron Meyerson, Oxygen�s Senior Vice President of Development and Production and Alice Dickens, Oxygen�s Manager of Development West Coast.
