Experience High School All Over Again With TVLAND.COM's 'Digital Yearbook' in Support of Network's New Original Series, High School Reunion

User Generated Microsite Allows Visitors to Upload Their High School Photos, Share Memories and More

TVLand.com To Feature Original Mini-sodes Taped at The Cast's Actual High School Reunion

NEW YORK, March 3 -- Break out those yearbook photos and get ready to relive the glory ... or gory days of high school all over again as TV Land announced today the launch of an all-new user generated High School Reunion section of TVLAND.COM where users can upload photos, interact with others, share high school memories and much more. Available immediately, the site supports TV Land's new original series, High School Reunion premiering on Wednesday, March 5, 2008 at 10:00PM ET/PT.

TVLAND.COM users can create a profile in the High School Reunion microsite to upload their favorite high school and current photos and choose an archetype that they think describes them best (i.e. the Jock, the Popular Girl, the Stud, etc.) -- then and now. This completely interactive site also gives users the chance to vote on each others photos, search for classmates, post messages about their high school experiences, send profiles to friends and determine the winners of high school-themed online contests like "Best Prom Outfit," "Most Improved" and "Best Shoulder Pads." Also, each week one lucky user's profile will be featured on-air in an episode of High School Reunion.

"Providing increased interactivity for High School Reunion allows TV Land viewers to reconnect with high school memories and have some fun with the past," states Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. "Our audience can readily identify with the people on High School Reunion and may even be inspired to rekindle past relationships or build upon current ones. Either way, this experience is highly relatable and definitely something our viewers will enjoy."

Additionally, on March 5 -- the night of the on-air premiere of High School Reunion -- TVLAND.COM will launch behind the scenes extras from the show including a photo gallery by cast member Kat, a weekly post-show blog by cast member Glenn, never-before-seen footage from the taping of the show, extended scenes, sneak peeks of upcoming episodes and streaming of full episodes.

Then, after the series on-air run, TVLAND.COM will offer seven original mini-sodes shot on location in Dallas chronicling the cast's actual high school reunion. The mini-sodes will also catch up with each cast member and reveal the inside scoop on what has happened with all of them since their time in Hawaii.

TVLAND.COM is continuing to set records, as traffic for TVLAND.COM is currently pacing +42% higher than last year. Video streams are pacing +51% higher than the previous year's levels and page views are up +34% over February 2006.

High School Reunion, which is produced by Mike Fleiss and Lisa Levenson from The Bachelor, gives viewers an inside look at what happens when 15 classmates unleash their deep-seeded high school emotions, painfully or not, 20 years later.
