Santa Monica, CA (July 23, 2007) � For three seasons fans have lived, loved and come of age with the teenagers of "Laguna Beach." This season, MTV is moving up the coast to Newport Harbor. Join a new circle of friends as they discover first loves, face new rivalries and suffer new heartbreaks as "Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County" premieres on Wednesday, August 15th at 10:30pm ET/PT on MTV.

"It has been three years since the Stephen, Lauren and Kristin love triangle drew viewers to the real life drama of Laguna Beach," said Tony DiSanto, Executive Vice President, Series Development & Programming for MTV. "Now we are moving up the coast to a new town with new faces and a new high school, but with the same drama of dealing with relationships, cliques, family and friends. The real OC is a beautiful backdrop to this universal story and this year we go back to the heart of the drama...that wistful last year of school."

And on the same day as the television premiere, fans will be able to hang out with the new cast, party, relax and shop in the same places they see on-air for themselves in Virtual Newport Harbor, available at www.vmtv.com. From checking out the Main Street Surf Shop, to running to the store known as Etc. Etc. Etc. for the perfect outfit to wear, viewers will be able to virtually live the same story-lines they see on-air, including some of the biggest events of the year like the prom and graduation, and meet new cast member Chrissy on opening night.

Meanwhile, former best friends compete for the affection of a younger beauty.

A new town means new beauty, new drama, and new faces. Meet the cast of "Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County"�

Chrissy

Pretty and popular, Chrissy is a senior who grew up in Newport Beach and is lifelong friends with Sasha and Grant. An only child to doting parents, Chrissy has recently blossomed into a head-turning high school senior. As smart as she is beautiful, Chrissy has three colleges to pick from as she prepares to leave the family nest. While everything seems to be going her way, Chrissy longs for the one thing that has eluded her: a boyfriend. Now that the hottest guy in school � a junior named Clay who also happens to be her neighbor � has taken an interest in her, Chrissy appears headed for a storybook romance. Along the way she'll need to navigate roadblocks including an overprotective dad and rivals for Clay's affection.

Clay

Clay is a junior and although shy with girls, he is regarded as Newport Harbor's hottest guy. Born and raised in Newport, he takes full advantage of his oceanfront playground. Whether he's fishing from his own speed boat off Balboa Island or surfing at one of Newport's famous breaks, Clay catches girls' glances wherever he goes. Clay's humble attitude belies his looks � and he often turns to Grant, his gregarious friend, for a boost of confidence. While it seems Clay could have any girl he wants, his shyness has kept him from having a relationship. But when Clay develops real feelings for Chrissy � and she responds accordingly- it could be his chance to break out.

Allie

A stunning senior, Allie is the girl that all the boys want and all the girls want to be. She seems to have it all: a beautiful home on the tip of Balboa Peninsula, carte blanche with her dad's credit cards, and a hip family restaurant in which she holds parties for dozens of her friends. But all this wealth and confidence masks a vulnerable side to Allie. She may be a huge flirt with the boys, including Clay, but Allie really longs to rekindle romance with her seventh-grade boyfriend, Chase. Apart from romantic challenges, Allie struggles with leaving her privileged life behind as she prepares to strike out on her own.

Grant

While only a junior, Grant rules the school. Whether it's throwing parties, his luck with the ladies or his money supply, Grant is the epicenter for entertainment. Grant is constantly living up to his nickname - G-ball, for "Goofball"- and keeps a smile on everyone's faces. Not one for a serious relationship himself, Grant is content to act as a sounding board for both his childhood friend Chrissy and her new crush Clay. Former childhood friend Chase has recently turned into Grant's nemesis, as they compete for the affection of Chase's on and off girlfriend, Taylor. After spending a summer at military school, Grant is trying to reform his bad boy ways, or at least think about his future beyond Newport.

Chase

A strapping senior, Chase lives just a skateboard ride away from the surf shop where he works. He has a way with girls; no matter how many hearts he breaks. Although dating a sophomore named Taylor, he openly flirts with his ex flame, Allie and often gets in hot water with both of them. To make life even more complicated, Chase has a bitter rivalry with his former best friend Grant as they often compete for the same girls. For the time being, Chase seems to regard love as a game to be won. Although he acts as a player at school, he has a close relationship with his mom and brothers at home, who he has formed a close bond with since his parent's divorce.

Taylor

While it looks like Taylor just walked off the pages of Sports Illustrated, she is really just a sophomore in high school. When she's not with girls her own age Taylor hangs out with Chrissy's clique. The boys have taken notice of Taylor and the attention presents many challenges for this fragile girl. She wants to be serious with her boyfriend, Chase, but he seems to have an eternally wandering eye. When other boys, including Chase's arch rival Grant, show an interest in Taylor she is torn.

Sasha

A loyal childhood friend and neighbor, Sasha is part of Chrissy's inner circle. Blonde and beautiful, Chrissy and Sasha share a passion for tennis and are partners on the high school team. Their heart to heart talks often occur courtside between matches where Sasha gives Chrissy advice about how to get closer to Clay. Apart from scholastic achievement and school crushes, the girls also share a value system instilled by their strict parents.

The third season of "Laguna Beach" reached over 70 million fans and was the most watched program in its time period among viewers ages 12-24 across all of television, even out-delivering broadcast.
