TVLandPRIME.com Lampoons the Network's Hit Series 'High School Reunion' With 'High School Reunion: Celebrity Edition'

NEW YORK, March 13 -- Inspired by TV Land's hit original series "High School Reunion," TVLandPRIME.com's blog contributor Sammy Buck casts his own version of the reality series with some of the hottest names in Hollywood. From Brad Pitt as "The Jock" to Bruce Willis as "The Class Clown" to Sarah Jessica Parker as "The Ugly Duckling," Buck offers a master class in sociology and stereotypes in this fun and exciting list. Visitors are sure to have their own opinion on which high school labels belong to their favorite celebs. "High School Reunion" airs weekly in TV Land PRIME on Wednesdays at 10:00PM ET/PT.

In addition to selecting which red hot celebrities fit the labels on the show, Buck's blog entry also explores those age-old yearbook predictions including what Angelina Jolie (The Cheerleader) and Joaquin Phoenix (The Loner) were "most likely to" achieve in future endeavors.

TV Land's "High School Reunion" website also offers other amusing activities such as the "80's Me" application -- where visitors can upload a current photo of themselves and blast back to the days of big bangs and shoulder pads and the "Awesomely 80's" music video widget that participants can upload to their favorite social networking sites. Visitors can also check out cast members' personal photo galleries, watch exclusive video taken by the cast as well as bonus moments not seen on-air, read weekly behind-the-scenes cast blogs and play free, exclusive games such as "High School Volleyball," where contestants can test their volleyball skills in real time against other online gamers.

"High School Reunion" features nineteen classmates from the 1988 graduating class of Arizona's Chandler High who have been brought together for their own special reunion set on an exotic and romantic Kauai estate to rekindle old relationships, reveal long-held secrets and resolve deep-seated issues from 20 years ago. The TV Land original eight-part reality series premieres on TV Land PRIME, TV Land's new primetime programming destination designed to appeal to the attitudes, life stage and interests of people in their 40s. "High School Reunion" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Regular TVLandPRIME.com writer Sammy Buck has been a member of the TV Land Awards website writing team and has written trivia games for "Star Trek" and "M*A*S*H" on tvland.com. Buck wrote the book and lyrics for the musical "Like You Like It" and the book for "Common Grounds."
