NEW YORK, October 25, 2006 � Famed actress, pop culture icon and mother-to-be Tori Spelling (So NoTORIous, Beverly Hills 90210) and her actor husband Dean McDermott will make the move from performers to proprietors, by opening their own bed & breakfast in a new Oxygen reality series. The newlyweds created the show and will executive produce the series along with executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato of World of Wonder Productions, the production team behind the Bravo series Show Biz Moms & Dads. Six episodes of the 30-minute series are set to premiere spring 2007.

Giving new meaning to the term luxury accommodations, the McDermotts will leave their Hollywood lifestyle behind for the picturesque wine vineyards of southern California to invest Spelling�s entire life savings and her $800,000 inheritance into opening an inn. Partners in marriage and now in business, the couple will give viewers an intimate look at their new life as they try to balance the challenges and obstacles they face as first-time innkeepers with the joys and stresses of preparing for their first baby.

�Not only is Tori incredibly popular with television audiences, she�s also constantly evolving and taking on new challenges, which makes for great television,� says Deborah Beece, President of Programming and Marketing for Oxygen. �Tori and Dean are becoming first-time business owners and parents at the same time. We love that they are brave enough to make those transitions in front of a camera.�

With over two decades in the entertainment industry, Tori Spelling is an accomplished actress with a career spanning both television and film. Spelling shot to stardom playing Donna Martin on the acclaimed drama series Beverly Hills 90210, a role for which she remains beloved by American audiences.

Following her time on 90210, Spelling returned to movies, switching effortlessly between mainstream hits such as Scream 2 and Scary Movie 2 and acclaimed indie performances in movies such as Trick and The House of Yes. Spelling also served as lead actress and executive producer for the VH1 scripted comedy So NoTORIous, loosely based on her own life. Next, she will star in the independent feature Kiss the Bride. She will also make a guest appearance on The CW series Smallville. Recently married to actor Dean McDermott, they are expecting their first child in spring 2007.

Dean McDermott is a veteran film and television actor who has had starring roles in such series as 1-800-Missing and Due South as well as the Kevin Costner directed motion picture Open Range. He also has made numerous television guest appearances on such popular programming as The Closer, NCIS and Without a Trace. McDermott also starred in the television movie Mind Over Murder where he met his wife Tori Spelling.

Executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are the founders of World of Wonder Productions. Based in both Los Angeles and London, World of Wonder is best known for award-winning films and documentaries such as The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Party Monster, HBO�s Monica in Black and White, as well as the Bravo non-fiction series Show Biz Moms & Dads and the Sundance Channel�s Transgeneration. Most recently World of Wonder produced the hit series Million Dollar Listings for Bravo, The Boom Generation for TV Land and is currently producing Showchoirs for MTV.

The series is managed by Aaron Meyerson, Oxygen�s Senior Vice President of Development and Production and Kristen Connolly Vadas, Oxygen�s Vice President of Development West Coast, serves as the Executive in Charge.
