THEWB.COM DEBUTS NEW SERIES FOR OCTOBER

Cast and Premiere Dates Announced for Original Series "Rich Girl, Poor Girl," from Producers of "Laguna Beach"

Additional New Series "High Drama: Against All Oz" and "Downers Grove" Also to Premiere

Burbank, Calif. (October 2, 2008) � TheWB.com � a premium, ad-supported, video-on-demand, interactive and personalized network � today announced a rich slate of original programming for the month of October. Kicking off the original series premieres on October 6 is "High Drama: Against All Oz," a behind-the-scenes look at a high school production of "The Wizard of Oz," followed by "Rich Girl, Poor Girl," the latest unscripted series from the creators of "Laguna Beach," on October 20. "Downers Grove," premiering in mid-October, follows four offbeat friends and the quirky adventures they face in their small town.

TheWB.com also announced today that Tarra Woolen, from the swanky Los Angeles enclave of Pacific Palisades, and Angie Riccio, from East Los Angeles, are the stars of "Rich Girl, Poor Girl."

Angie is a 19-year-old sassy, strong-minded and free-spirited young woman who lives in the heart of East Los Angeles. She's a night owl who detests school and lives an unstructured life. Tarra, on the other hand, is a super-achieving 19-year-old from the Pacific Palisades, who is highly motivated, loves structure and routine, and wakes up early every day to exercise. All bets are off when this Westside cheerleader and prom queen changes places with a streetwise teen from Los Angeles.

These new original series round out TheWB.com's already robust collection of new and classic programming available on the site. Visitors can also use TheWB.com's many interactive features to edit and mash together clips from their favorite shows and share them with friends. Viewers can control, customize, reorder, re-edit and reinterpret shows in a very personal way.
