TV LAND'S NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, HIGH SCHOOL REUNION, PREMIERES ON MARCH 5, 2008

Alums from JJ Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas Journey to Maui to Celebrate Their High School Reunion

Los Angeles, CA � February 20, 2008 -- TV Land has assembled alumni from the JJ Pearce High School (Richardson, TX) to experience the reunion of a lifetime. High School Reunion, the newest TV Land Original Production, premieres on March 5, 2008 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The six-episode series, set on a sun-drenched multi-million dollar Hawaiian estate, revolves around the reunion getaway for alums from JJ Pearce High, several of whom have not seen each other since graduating 20 years ago.

Executive produced by Mike Fleiss and Lisa Levenson (The Bachelor), High School Reunion reunites classmates from all walks and stages of life who have some issues to address and resolve since their days at Pearce. Whether opening some painful wounds inflicted by the resident bully or rekindling old romances, High School Reunion will give viewers a front row seat to the emotional and compelling rollercoaster ride throughout its six-week run.

"High School Reunion provides TV Land viewers with a fascinating window into how classmates who knew each other in the 1980's have evolved over the last 20 years," explains Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. "By bringing together several alumni for a two week get-away, High School Reunion allows the classmates to really experience how they have changed � or have not changed � since graduation.
