[via press release from MTV]


New York, NY (July 14, 2006) - Football season gets a head start on MTV with the launch of the new documentary series �Two-A-Days� on Wednesday, August 23rd at 10:30pm ET/PT.

From MTV�s critically acclaimed News & Docs department, which created shows like �True Life� and �Cribs�; �Two-A-Days� follows the 2005 football season of the Hoover High School Buccaneers, of Hoover, Alabama.

Viewers will not only watch as the Bucs chase their fourth state championship title in five years, but they will also get an inside look on how players balance the normal pressures of being high school seniors and dealing with personal relationships. In Hoover, football is not just a sport it�s a WAY OF LIFE so losing is never an option. Players face the pressures of demanding coaches and practices twice every day while trying to earn football scholarships to some of the country�s most respectable colleges.

Each of the eight episodes of �Two-A-Days� will culminate in a big game; but the drama off the field often affects what happens on the field.

Fans will have access to exclusive content with the cast on MTV.com and broadband network, MTV Overdrive (www.overdrive.mtv.com). The site will offer episode descriptions, tune-in information and cast bios and photos. Beginning August 23rd, each week the Overdrive "After Show" will offer exclusive cast interviews including �In The Huddle� -- a post-game analysis featuring the Coach and the team discussing the big game of the week. In addition users can watch the �Fumbled Scene,� an offering of deleted scenes and other bonus footage from that week�s episode.

MTV Mobile will feature selected short-form segments from the MTV Overdrive (www.overdrive.mtv.com) �After Show� on mobile video, as well as the show trailer. In addition, fans will be able to download one-liners and coach catchphrases as ring-tones and wallpapers featuring photos of the cast and more.
