A&E GREENLIGHTS NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES "BOB SAGET'S STRANGE DAYS" (WORKING TITLE)

DOCUMENTING COMEDIAN BOB SAGET AS HE IMMERSES HIMSELF IN FASCINATING WORLDS AROUND THE COUNTRY

CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION ON SEVEN ONE-HOUR EPISODES SLATED FOR 2010 PREMIERE

NEW YORK � November 17, 2009 � A&E Network announced today a new original real-life series, "Bob Saget's Strange Days," (working title) which busts down barriers to investigate some of America's most fascinating and mysterious worlds. Documenting his journey around America, Saget immerses himself in different unusual cultures from the world of mail-order brides to joining a survivalist cult prepping for the end of the world to rushing a fraternity. The series is currently in production on seven one-hour episode slated for premiere in 2010.

"Bob Saget has been a part of the television landscape for years, but now we'll be seeing him in a completely different light as he travels the country to explore ways of living that most of us know nothing about," said Robert Sharenow, Senior Vice President, Nonfiction and Alternative Programming, A&E. "The show will reveal hidden corners of the real America and the real Bob Saget, who is even funnier and more relatable when just being himself than any other role he's ever played."

Best known for his roles as the loveable Danny Tanner in "Full House," the host of "America's Funniest Home Videos" and for his hilarious stand-up comedy routines, Bob Saget definitely has a unique view of the world. His unflinching observations about offbeat people and lifestyles in his stage performances have sparked him to take a more in-depth, hands-on investigation of this subject matter. He'll go from the back of a Harley with a biker gang, to prepping for the end of civilization with a secretive survivalist group, to living with a group of partying Amish teenagers before they decide on whether or not they'll commit to be baptized as Amish adults, to submerging himself in the world of mail order brides.

"Bob Saget's Strange Days" will enable viewers to get an insightful understanding of what makes individuals tick in these alternative lifestyles and daring situations. Bob will also uncover the humanity and the shared values inside all of these odd and absurd situations that each of us will be able to relate to.

"Bob Saget's Strange Days" (working title) is produced for A&E Network by Tijuana Entertainment ("Obsessed," "The Two Coreys") and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Executive producers for Tijuana are Troy Searer and John Foy. Peter Traugott will executive produce for Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Bob Saget will also serve as executive producer. Executive producers for A&E are Robert Sharenow and Scott Lonker.
