Fox Reality Channel Announces New Original Series

"Gimme My Reality Show!" To Feature Celebrity Reality Stars Traci Bingham, Santino Rice, Gretchen Bonaduce, and more!

Premiering only on Fox Reality Channel October 11, 2008 directly after the 2008 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards

LOS ANGELES -- Fox Reality Channel, the only all-reality, all-the-time cable network, heats up this fall with the debut of the celebrity reality series, "Gimme My Reality Show!" announced today by David Lyle, President, Fox Reality Channel. The series�in which celebrities compete for the right to have their own reality show�premieres Saturday, October 11, at midnight ET/PT following the outrageous 2008 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards.

"'Gimme My Reality Show!' is truly unique," said Lyle. "It allows previous supporting reality stars the chance to compete for extra time in the spotlight and for something they've haven't had�their OWN reality show."

Initial celebrity headliners signed for the show include Traci Bingham, Santino Rice and Gretchen Bonaduce. Bingham's exotic beauty and energetic personality landed her most famous role as Jordin Tate, on the hit series "Baywatch." She has since made her mark in the reality television world appearing as part of the cast in several shows including, "The Surreal Life 2," and FOX's own "Celebrity Boot Camp."

Rice, a former graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A., gained instant fame with his design abilities, energy, and brutal honesty on the second season of "Project Runway," Since his semi-finalist finish, Santino has focused on creating one-of-a-kind pieces for his impressive list of exclusive clientele.

Bonaduce was part of the celebrity reality series "Breaking Bonaduce" which focused on the issues and events of the life of her husband Danny Bonaduce. She developed and served as executive producer for "Now My Kid's the Next Child Star" for VHI, and she also has appeared on several television shows including Oprah, Phil Donahue, The Other Half, and VH1's Behind the Music and Partridge Family. Gretchen is an accomplished singer and currently is performing with the MuddFlaps and Anhkesenamun around Southern California.

Fox Reality Channel will continue to cast additional celebrity reality stars before the show begins full production.

Produced by Natural 9 Entertainment ("Fox Reality Really Awards," "Reality Remix"), "Gimme My Reality Show!" will feature the celebrity reality stars battling in a variety of creative challenges to raise as much public and press recognition as possible for themselves. Judging the efforts of the celebrity reality starts will be a panel of reality producers, TV executives, and former reality stars. The ultimate winner will be chosen by viewer voting.

The winner will be announced during the show's grand finale on Election Night (November 4, 2008), and will receive his/her own four-episode Original series to premiere on Fox Reality Channel.
