NBC JOINS WITH NEW LINE TELEVISION AND KATALYST FILMS TO CRASH THE PARTY WITH NEW REALITY SERIES 'THE REAL WEDDING CRASHERS,' BASED ON HIT FEATURE FILM

Six-episode, Hidden-camera Series Brings New Element of Surprise to Unsuspecting Wedding Guests

BURBANK, Calif. -- August 28, 2006 -- NBC will introduce the new reality series "The Real Wedding Crashers," inspired by last year's hit New Line feature film "Wedding Crashers" - to be produced by New Line Television and Katalyst Films ("Punk'd") -- that will feature hidden cameras that will record improvisational actors who go undercover at real weddings to bring an added element of surprise to the traditional proceedings.

Katalyst's Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg and Karey Burke will be executive producers of the six-episode series along with New Line's Jon Kroll ("Amazing Race," "Amish in the City") and Jim Rosenthal ("Blade").

The announcement was made today by Craig Plestis, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming, Development and Specials, NBC Entertainment.

"Everyone loved 'Wedding Crashers' and we wanted to see if we could capture that same kind of inspired frivolity in a real-life series," said Plestis. "Working with Ashton and knowing his memorable experiences with the jokes he pulled off on 'Punk'd' made it that much more enticing. This series has a big upside potential for hidden-camera humor."

The pranksters are expected to do more than liven up the stress and drama common to many weddings. They also intend to occasionally bring families together in emotional moments.
