HOT FROM FOX...

"ANCHORWOMAN" BREAKING NEWS!

FORMER WWE DIVA LAUREN JONES PUTS TYLER, TX, ON THE MAP WHEN "ANCHORWOMAN" PREMIERES ON A NEW NIGHT, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, ON FOX

Best known for its kindly manners, rose gardens and antique shops, the city of Tyler, TX, will never be the same once ANCHORWOMAN premieres with a special one-hour episode on a new night, Wednesday, Aug. 22 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The series begins airing in its regular time period Wednesday, Aug. 29 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). A comedy/reality hybrid, ANCHORWOMAN follows the trials and tribulations of buxom blonde Lauren Jones as she sets out to transform herself from swimsuit model to hard-hitting news anchor for KYTX Channel 19 in Tyler.

PHIL HURLEY is the owner of a middle-market Texas news station, KYTX Channel 19. Willing to do anything to get viewers to tune in to his newscasts in a highly competitive local market, Phil has shocked the station and the town of Tyler by bringing in a gorgeous model and ex-WWE diva with no previous news experience to be his next ANCHORWOMAN.

Former Miss New York and ´┐Żber-vixen LAUREN JONES packs up her Versace dresses and heads to Tyler to start a new career. Can this bombshell make it as a serious reporter? Will she save KYTX, or make it the laughingstock of the Lone Star State? Lauren wants to show everyone she's no airhead, and this is her big chance to prove she's more than just a pretty face.

The entire newsroom thinks the boss has made a giant mistake. Reigning anchor ANNALISA PETRALIA is not about to lose her Queen Bee status to some L.A. hottie. News Director DAN DELGADO is fit to be tied, fearful his beloved journalistic standards will go out the window. MICHELLE REESE, a hard-nosed reporter bound for CNN, will take no prisoners. Lauren has a big job in front of her as she struggles to fit in with her news team and an unfamiliar town.

ANCHORWOMAN is produced by Fox 21 and The G Group. Brian Gadinsky is the creator and serves as executive producer. Joshua Bingham serves as co-executive producer with Chad Damiani and J.P. Lavin serving as supervising producers.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: ANCHORWOMAN was previously announced to premiere Tuesday, Aug. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.]
