OXYGEN STRIKES A POSE! THE JANICE DICKINSON MODELING AGENCY BEGINS PRODUCTION ON SEASON TWO AND HOLIDAY SPECIAL
Over-The-Top Supermodel�s Reality Show Expands to One-Hour Format
With More Drama, More Models and More Janice
�Christmas With The Dickinsons� Special to Air in December and
Brand-New Season Kicks Off in January
New York � October 23, 2006 � Oxygen will begin production this week on the second season of the network�s most successful original series ever - The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, including a special holiday episode titled Christmas With The Dickinsons. The show�s format has been expanded from half-hour to one-hour, giving Season Two twice the drama and outrageous antics of Janice and her business partners, models, and family. The holiday special is set to premiere in December and the rest of the season will kick off with brand-new episodes beginning in January.
While the first season followed model-turned-mogul Janice through the highs and lows of starting her own Hollywood modeling agency, the second season will take a closer look at the lives of the models and explore whether the agency really has what it takes to succeed. From her volatile relationship with business partners to a showdown with disgruntled models from last season, Janice will face many challenges and personality clashes as the business grows.
�Janice�s first season was a big hit � she is a one-of-a-kind personality and our audience couldn�t get enough of her� said Debby Beece, President of Programming and Marketing for Oxygen. �Expanding the second season�s format will give viewers the chance to get to know Janice even better � from her fearless and funny moments to her struggles and conflicts.�
