USA NETWORK GOING TO CAMP WITH STEVE-O

Network Greenlights Pilot with Bunim-Murray Productions and Star of "Jackass" and "Wildboyz"

(Los Angeles, CA � August 10, 2006) USA Network has greenlit production on CAMP STEVE-O, a 30-minute reality pilot starring Steve-O of "Jackass" and "Wildboyz" fame, as he attempts to "de-wussify" the men of America with his own special brand of boot camp. The pilot is being produced in partnership with reality powerhouse Bunim-Murray Productions ("The Real World," "The Simple Life " "Starting Over"). The announcement was made today by Jeff Wachtel, USA's executive vice president, original programming.

"Talk about unique characters! CAMP STEVE-O will certainly bring something different to USA," said Wachtel. "We're looking forward to working with Steve-O and Bunim/Murray to create an energized, fun show that will grab you by the... er, let's just say, that will be very entertaining!"

"We are thrilled to be collaborating with USA Network in bringing back someone with such a sizable, existing fan base on cable," added Jonathan Murray, Chairman and President, Bunim-Murray Productions. "Steve-O is certain to complement USA's innovative programming."

CAMP STEVE-O will follow the adventures of the indomitable Steve-O - a member of a dying breed of live-life-to-the-max daredevils who is disgusted with the alarming number of wussified men - as he travels around in a camper van invading the homes and offices of wimps, nerds and couch-potatoes who have been nominated by their buddies, girlfriends, wives, mothers and co-workers to be "de-wussified." Administering his wild brand of "extreme attitude adjustments" - including shockingly hilarious stunts and embarrassingly funny and demented dares specifically tailored to each "Steve-O-in-training," Steve-O will confront the guys where they live and shock them out of their shells where it matters most - in their hometowns in front of their family and friends!

Bunim-Murray Productions is the leading independent producer of innovative entertainment content. The company is widely credited with creating the reality television genre with its hit series THE REAL WORLD (now already in its 17th season on MTV). Bunim-Murray's other current programming includes REAL WORLD ROAD RULES CHALLENGE (MTV), THE SIMPLE LIFE (with its fourth season on E!), STARTING OVER (syndicated) and the upcoming BAD GIRLS CLUB (Oxygen).
