Tori Spelling IS..."So Notorious"

[via press release from VH1]

Tori Spelling Is�"so noTORIous"

VH1�s First Scripted Comedy, �so noTORIous,� Starring Tori Spelling Premieres Sunday, April 2 With Back-To-Back Episodes Beginning At 10pm*

Also Starring Loni Anderson As Her Mother, �Kiki�

New York, NY � March 27, 2006 � Tori Spelling stars as a fictionalized version of herself in VH1�s first scripted comedy �so noTORIous.� This single camera show is inspired by real events and people in Tori�s life (but this is �so� not a reality show). Also starring is Loni Anderson as her on-screen mother, �Kiki.� The series will premiere on Sunday, April 2 with episode one premiering at 10PM* and episode two at 10:30PM*. The full premiere episode will sneak peek on VSPOT, VH1�s broadband channel (http://vspot.vh1.com) beginning Tuesday, March 28.

Forget everything you've ever heard about Tori Spelling. OK, maybe not everything. It�s true, her dad is the most successful TV producer of all time and she did spend a decade playing the virginal Donna Martin on his hit show �Beverly Hills 90210.� But now that Tori has left that zip code and her parents' mansion behind, she wants the same things we all do: friendship, respect, and love.

Used to tabloid scrutiny, Tori navigates life with a self-deprecating sense of humor and the support of a loyal crew of friends she�s known since high school. She has a devoted manager who rabidly disputes assumptions that Tori isn't capable of taking on a serious role--and keeps the TV movie offers coming in the meantime. Her beloved nanny, who raised her, is still always available whenever Tori needs a reality check. Whatever her critics say, though, the most intense scrutiny still comes from Tori's own mother, Kiki. The ultimate Beverly Hills housewife, Kiki demands perfection, a standard Tori tries and usually fails to meet. New episodes will air every Sunday at 10PM.

In addition to Loni Anderson who plays Tori�s mother �Kiki,� the show also features Cleo King as �Margaret,� the nanny who raised Tori from a baby and is still always there for her, and Jeanetta Arnette as her frenetic and doting manager �Ruthie Rose.� Tori is surrounded by an eclectic group of friends: �Pete,� her self-involved roommate played by James Carpinello, �Janey,� an ambitious, acerbic real estate agent played by Brennan Hesser and �Sasan,� a haughty, gay Persian American played by Zachary Quinto. The only other regular cast member playing herself is Mimi La Rue, Tori�s dog, the most fashionable (and indolent) pug west of the Mississippi.

Extensive �so noTORIous� programming on VSPOT at VH1.com (http://vspot.vh1.com) will include: original broadband packages featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes clips, outtakes, Q&A with the cast as well as the �so noTORIous Guide to LA� which will provide the inside scoop on restaurants, shops, and hotspots from each episode and �Ask The Girls,� a weekly segment where viewer-submitted questions will be answered by Nanny, Kiki (mom), and Ruthie (agent).

Other initiatives include VH1 Mobile clips, voicetones and wallpaper from �so noTORIous� � bringing Tori straight to your mobile phone. Then, beginning on April 10 exclusive content including full episodes, Q&A segments with the cast, behind-the-scenes clips, outtakes and much more will be shown on VH1 On Demand through various cable providers� VOD platforms.
