'THE BABY BORROWERS: LESSONS LEARNED' TOWN HALL SPECIAL WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6 TO BE HOSTED BY HODA KOTB WITH DR. DREW PINSKY

Teen Couples and Parents of the "Borrowed" Babies from NBC's Controversial Series "The Baby Borrowers" Reunite For the First Time Since Filming Wrapped Last Summer

Town Hall to Feature Spirited Debate of Highly Publicized Teen Pregnancy Issue; Special Guests Include Gloucester, Mass. Teens Who Will Discuss Alleged "Pregnancy Pact"

BURBANK, Calif. - July 29, 2008 - NBC's Hoda Kotb ("Today") will host "The Baby Borrowers: Lessons Learned" an interactive town hall special on Wednesday, August 6 (9-10 p.m. ET) that will bring together the teen couples as well as the parents of the "borrowed" babies of NBC's controversial reality series "The Baby Borrowers" for the first time since filming wrapped last summer. Joining Kotb will be physician and relationship expert Dr. Drew Pinsky ("Loveline") who will engage special guests in a spirited debate on the much-publicized issue of teen pregnancy.

Viewers will get a chance to find out what lessons "The Baby Borrowers" teens learned after they went home to their "real" lives, which teen couples are still together and what they are up to now. The parents who lent their babies to this social experiment will also be on-hand to talk about their reasons for participating in the show, as well as how their child is doing today.

Special guests will include The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy CEO Sarah Brown, "The Baby Borrowers" executive producer and creator Richard McKerrow, as well as three Gloucester, Massachusetts teens who will discuss the alleged "pregnancy pact," which made national headlines. The special will also feature critics of the program, plus experts in adolescent psychology and teen pregnancy.

"The Baby Borrowers: Lessons Learned" will be an interactive event where some viewers will be invited to text in their own opinions and comments about the show and the issue surrounding teen pregnancy. The special will also answer questions submitted by viewers on NBC.com.

David Corvo is the executive producer of "The Baby Borrowers: Lessons Learned."
