REVISED: NBC ANNOUNCES THE 'COUGARS' AND 'KITTENS' VYING FOR THE AFFECTION OF AUSTRALIAN TENNIS SUPERSTAR MARK PHILIPPOUSSIS IN NBC'S UPCOMING REALITY DATING SERIES 'AGE OF LOVE,' PREMIERING JUNE 18

BURBANK, Calif. � June 4, 2007 - In NBC's upcoming reality dating series "Age of Love," premiering June 18 (9-10 p.m.) and hosted by popular actor Mark Consuelos ("All My Children"), seven beautiful, sophisticated women in their 40's, playfully nicknamed the "Cougars," will vie for the affections of 30-year-old Australian tennis superstar Mark Philippoussis, with six fun, enthusiastic women in their 20's, coined the "Kittens."

"This summer we are bringing romance back to NBC by trying to answer the simple question, when it comes to love, does age matter?" said JD Roth, the series' executive producer. "The answer is...love is ageless...you can't ignore pure chemistry. And as a viewer, it doesn't matter what age you are, there are women to root for and against, and that makes for great story telling."

"Age of Love" features a timely, unique twist on the reality dating show format. More than just a dating competition, it's a social experiment based on the question: When it comes to falling in love, does age really matter?

30-year-old Australian tennis superstar Mark Philippoussis will attempt to find true love among women ranging in age from 21-48 in this unique series based on the current phenomenon of younger men dating older women. Philippoussis will date 13 women from two very different groups -- the "Kittens," six fun, enthusiastic women in their 20's, and the "Cougars," seven beautiful, sophisticated women in their 40's.

But only one woman can win Mark's heart. Is she an attractive, experienced woman who knows what she wants and has already carved out a niche of her own? Or, is she a sexy younger woman who lacks the experience of her older counterpart, but has an enthusiasm for life that only comes with the inexperience of youth? In the end, both Mark and the viewers will discover if love is truly ageless.

The suspense builds in early episodes as Mark -- unaware of the concept -- is first introduced to the "Cougars." As he meets them one by one, their ages increase much to his surprise. The series takes a dramatic turn when Mark learns there's a second group of much younger women -- the "Kittens" -- who will also be attempting to vie for his affections. Unaware of each other, the two groups of women meet for the first time taking the competition for Mark's affections to a whole new level. From there, each week the field of women will be narrowed down with the remaining vying for his attention -- but only one can win Mark's heart.

"Age of Love" is produced by 3 Ball Productions. JD Roth ("The Biggest Loser," "Beauty and the Geek"), Todd A. Nelson ("The Biggest Loser," "Beauty and the Geek"), Adam Greener ("Unan1mous") and Craig Armstrong ("Survivor," "Super Nanny") are executive producers.
