New York, NY � April 3, 2008 - MTV's Emmy Award series, "MADE" (http://made.mtv.com) is back for another season of fun, exciting, and life changing episodes premiering on Saturday, April 12th from 10am � 1pm.

Below are detailed descriptions of the shows that are scheduled to air from 10am - 1pm ET/PT:

� Made: Rock Star (10am) - Straight A student Andrew Hisel doesn't have very many friends, so to gain some rocker popularity he wants to compete in his school's Battle of the Bands. The only problem?

� Made: Baseball Player (11am) - Drama club devotee Stephen LaMonica loves stealing the spotlight on stage. But being gay doesn't always get him the kind of attention he enjoys at school or at home in a family of jocks. Now he wants to find his inner athlete to prove he's more than just the "gay theater kid" by become a hard hitting, speed ball throwing, varsity baseball player. With just five weeks to master the game and win over the returning players, find out if Stephen strikes out or hits it home.

� Made: Ballerina & Made: Tap Dancer (12pm � 2pm) - Two kids. One School. One very big Talent Show at Winthrop High School. Vanessa Caruccio's a hard-hitting jockette who wants to show everyone she can be a girlie girl. So she's being MADE into a graceful and elegant ballerina. Kevin Clucas is a popular senior, a jock who wants to find his creative side. So he's being MADE into a tap dancer.
