THE CW IS LOOKING FOR THE NEXT PUSSYCAT DOLL

NATIONWIDE CASTING STARTS IMMEDIATELY ON THE CW'S FIRST NEW REALITY SHOW

EIGHT EPISODES OF SERIES ORDERED FOR 2006-07 SEASON

(Burbank, CA) August 2, 2006 - In its first series pick-up announcement since the May Upfront, The CW Network will welcome performing and recording artists The Pussycat Dolls in a new eight-episode reality series chronicling the group's search for a new member, tentatively titled �The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll.� The announcement was made today by Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, The CW.

�At its core, this show goes beyond just finding a new Pussycat Doll; it's about female empowerment, self-discovery and personal transformation,� said Ostroff. �The CW's adult 18-34-year-old viewers recognize that fame and fortune are within their reach and this series gives one lucky young woman her big break to join one of today's most popular musical groups, The Pussycat Dolls.�

�The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll� (working title) features a group of diverse young women from all walks of life, who will learn to express their femininity with both confidence and poise through performance, and discover that in every woman there's a Pussycat Doll.

Under the guidance of The Pussycat Dolls creator and founder Robin Antin, these young hopefuls will live together and have their singing ability, dance moves and sheer self-confidence put to the test, as they vie for the opportunity to join the chart-topping singing sensation The Pussycat Dolls, as the group expands from six members to seven. Additionally, certain elements of the series will be broadcast live.

Slated to air during the 2006-07 broadcast season, the nationwide talent hunt begins immediately for the select group of women, who will appear on the series and be transformed from wannabes into world-class performers. Video submissions can be sent to Pussycat Doll Casting, 2801 Ocean Park Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405. Cities and dates for local open casting calls will be announced shortly. Additional questions can be directed to pcdcasting@gmail.com.

The winner will join The Pussycat Dolls, which includes Ashley Roberts, Melody Thornton, Kimberly Wyatt, Nicole Scherzinger, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta, who will also appear in the series. Multi-platinum recording artists The Pussycat Dolls have become a global phenomenon, as their debut album, �PCD,� has sold almost 5 million copies worldwide and remained among the Top 50 albums for 45 weeks. Singles from PCD, which include �Don't Cha,� �Stickwitu,� and their latest �Buttons,� have hit #1 in eight countries and broken into the Top 10 in 14 countries.

�The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll� (working title) is executive produced by Ken Mok (�America's Next Top Model�), Robin Antin (The Pussycat Dolls), Steven Antin (�Young Americans�), Jimmy Iovine (Interscope A&M Records) and McG (�Supernatural,� �The OC�). The new series is from Warner Horizon Television, 10 by 10 Entertainment, Pussycat Dolls, LLC, Interscope A&M Records and Wonderland Sound and Vision.
