UNRELENTING DEADLINES & COMPELLING NEWS STORIES COUPLED WITH VICIOUS TABLOID COMPETITION CREATES UNFORGETTABLE REAL-LIFE DRAMA - ONLY ON BRAVO

NEW YORK, NY - June 12, 2006 - On Monday, July 24, 2006 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Bravo will premiere the new original series "Tabloid Wars," the first unscripted documentary set inside the newsroom of one of the world's largest newspapers, The New York Daily News. "Tabloid Wars," a six-episode one-hour series shot in the form of a procedural drama, is like a visiting tornado that provides a personal and powerful peek into the world of tabloid journalism where everyday is a deadline, a competitive edge is key, and breaking news never stops. Each episode of "Tabloid Wars" follows the working lives of four to five compelling characters, the journalists of The New York Daily News, as they report on crime, murder, war, and celebrity news with New York City as the backdrop.

"This smart, funny and at times emotionally wrenching series taps into Bravo's arts and culture core and delves right into the fast-paced working lives of the journalists and the newsmakers they cover," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. "This unprecedented series goes beyond entertainment in many ways and imparts a truly educational and unique glimpse at the inner workings of a competitive leading daily newspaper."

"Tabloid Wars" provides a raw firsthand look at the news before it hits the ink. Viewers are brought right into The New York Daily News newsroom where they will experience the dramatic world of newsgathering and reporting. The colorful journalists portrayed include crime and city reporters, gossip columnists, sports writers, and top editors, all of whom are wholeheartedly dedicated to their trade. The stories they cover vary from complex murders, to the war in Iraq, to Robert De Niro's thieving nanny and a Gotti family party. Filmed fly-on-the-wall style, with complete access, but structured and edited like a traditional dramatic series, "Tabloid Wars" documents how New York City's most timely and exciting stories make it to print and to newsstands nationwide.

Filmed during the summer of 2005, "Tabloid Wars" is produced by Hearst Entertainment Inc. for Bravo. Hearst Entertainment's Jerry Shevick, executive vice president, and James Deutch, vice president, are executive producers of the series along with executive producers Belisa Balaban and Ted Skillman.
