Los Angeles, CA, October 29, 2007 � TV Land is celebrating the Broadway opening of Mel Brooks' new musical Young Frankenstein with a series of events on-air, online and off-air. TVLand.com, the network's revamped website, is offering a trip to New York City to see the highly anticipated production and will feature original interviews with the Broadway cast including Megan Mullally, Andrea Martin and more. TV Land will also show the network premiere of the original 1974 comedic masterpiece, Young Frankenstein.

One lucky winner and their guest will be flown round-trip to NYC to attend Young Frankenstein on Broadway, hotel accommodations for 2 nights and $500 spending cash. Starting November 1, TVLand.com will also feature interviews with the cast of the musical including, Megan Mullally (Elizabeth), Sutton Foster (Inga), Shuler Hensley (The Monster), Andrea Martin (Frau Blucher), Fred Applegate (Kemp) and Christopher Fitzgerald (Igor) as well as highlights from the show.

"We are thrilled to support the Broadway production of Young Frankenstein with our multi-platform offerings," stated Larry W. Jones, President of TV Land. "Fans and critics alike recognize Young Frankenstein as one of the funniest movies ever. It truly stands the test of time and really resonates with our target audience as an important piece of pop culture."

As part of TV Land's Friday night programming block, Movieland, the network will also air the classic Oscar-nominated movie Young Frankenstein on Friday, November 2 at 10PM ET/PT, with an encore on Saturday, November 3 at 1PM ET/PT. The original film Young Frankenstein premiered in 1974 and was directed and co-written by Mel Brooks. Shot in black and white as an homage to monster movies of the past, co-screenwriter, Gene Wilder, stars as a young neurosurgeon who inherits the castle of his grandfather, Victor von Frankenstein. He denies interest in his grandfather's experiments until the discovery of von Frankenstein's journal. With the help of Teri Garr, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Peter Boyle, and Marty Feldman, hilarity ensues as Victor von Frankensteins monster is brought to life.

From the creative team of The Producers, the musical version of Young Frankenstein opens on Broadway November 9 at the Hilton Theatre in New York City. Directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, the production stars Megan Mullally, of Will & Grace and host of the 2006 TV Land Award Show and Roger Bart of Desperate Housewives fame, as well as Sutton Foster, 2002 Tony Award winner for Best Actress in a Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie. The musical features a book by three-time Tony Award winner Mel Brooks and three-time Tony award winner Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Brooks.
