MTV Gives Paris Hilton Fans a Glimpse Behind the Glamour With the Premiere of 'Paris, Not France' on Tuesday, July 28th at 8:30PM (ET/PT)

Exclusive Documentary Reveals Candid Moments, Commentary and Confessions

'Paris Hilton's My New BFF' Finale To Air August 4th at 10:00PM (ET/PT)

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 27 -- Will the real Paris Hilton please stand up? MTV, in partnership with Paris Hilton, debuts a new documentary "Paris, Not France" that provides viewers with a never-before-seen look at Paris Hilton's life. The special, premiering on Tuesday, July 28(th) at 8:30PM (ET/PT), follows the media magnet around the world from red carpets to business meetings to photo shoots, providing a back stage pass into what it really takes to maintain the life, business and brand of Paris Hilton.

The documentary, shot in 2006 in London, New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, strips away the glamour and provides an intimate look at the real person and real life of the self-made starlet. Featuring commentary from her family, close friends and the media, Paris shares with viewers some of her most treasured home videos from her childhood, talks candidly about her set-backs and controversies along her rise to fame, and provides viewers with a raw look at a side she has never before shared publicly.

Often considered just a partying heiress, "Paris, Not France" shows Paris as a passionate and focused entrepreneur who travels the world to pursue her business and branding ventures. When retracing the steps during her swift climb to the A-List, Hilton recalls, "Paris the Heiress was a character I made up."

The film dives into the evolution of the Paris Hilton phenomenon, the ongoing love affair between Paris and the worlds media, and how it defines this moment in culture.

"Despite all the criticism and misunderstanding of Paris, there is no doubt that she is one of the biggest and most recognizable icons of our generation," said Adria Petty, film director and producer.

"Paris, Not France" was an official selection of the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival and has never aired in the US.

Immediately following the film at 10:00PM (ET/PT), viewers can expect an all-new episode of "Paris Hilton's My New BFF." On August 4(th) at 10:00PM (ET/PT) MTV will air the series finale as Paris chooses her new BFF.

"Paris Not France" is a documentary by Adria Petty and Executive Produced by Tom Whalley, Cary Woods and Ken Hertz.
