BRAVO'S CORI ABRAHAM PROMOTED TO VICE PRESIDENT, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION

NEW YORK � August 1, 2007 � Bravo has promoted Cori Abraham - most recently Director of Development and Production - to Vice President, Development and Production. The announcement was made today by Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Bravo, and Andy Cohen, Senior Vice President, Production and Programming, Bravo.

"Cori has a keen sense of what the Bravo audience wants to see," said Introcaso-Davis. "She develops and produces shows that our fans find addictive."

Added Cohen, "Cori has been a key part to Bravo's popular programming," said Cohen. "Her energy and vibe help make our shows uniquely Bravo."

Having joined Bravo in April 2004, Abraham has developed and executive produced some of the network's more buzzed about programs during her tenure. Shows include the Emmy nominated "Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List," the highly-popular series "Work Out," the recent design competition show "Top Design," Bravo's string of "Funny Girl" stand-up specials with Griffin, Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Rivers, Caroline Rhea and Paula Poundstone, and the much-talked-about series "Hey Paula," following pop icon Paula Abdul.

Prior to Bravo, Abraham was Director of Development and Executive Producer at VH1, where she oversaw creative and production logistics and evaluated program pitches. Her VH1 credits include the series "Totally Obsessed" and "True Spin," as well as specials "Stage Moms" and "Bootcamp: Showgirls."

Abraham joined FX in 1999, spending three years as the Director of Comedy Development. In that role, she developed original scripted comedy and reality programming, and worked with many high profile executive producers including Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Moore and Howard Stern. Her accomplishments there include the Emmy-nominated "Lucky," starring John Corbett and the Howard Stern-produced series "Son of the Beach."

Earlier in her career, Abraham worked at Comedy Central as a Development Coordinator, from 1997-1999, where she read and evaluated program submissions. There, she played a role in the development of the network's two most popular series at the time -- "Strangers With Candy" and "The Upright Citizen's Brigade."

Abraham graduated from University of Wisconsin with two bachelor degrees -- one in Communications Arts and the other in Theatre Arts. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.
