Celebrity Uber-Couple Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin to Open Their Doors to TV Land in New Reality Docu-Soap 'Harry Loves Lisa'
Six-Episode TV Land PRIME Original Series To Air In Fall 2010
NEW YORK, Jan. 11 -- TV Land announced today that it has greenlit a six-episode docu-soap entitled "Harry Loves Lisa" featuring pop culture sensation Lisa Rinna and her heartthrob husband, Harry Hamlin. The series will be executive produced by Jason Carbone ("Run's House") and centers on the relationship between Rinna and Hamlin as they navigate together through the highs and lows as a devoted family living a hectic Hollywood lifestyle. "Harry Loves Lisa" brings to life the romantic notion that opposites attract as Lisa's playful spontaneity differs from Harry's more reserved demeanor. Audiences will watch as the two balance their differences in the midst of insane professional lives as working actors and entrepreneurs who are parenting two pre-teen daughters. One of Hollywood's most enduring? couples, the Hamlins' contradictory personalities make for amazing chemistry both on-screen and off. The TV Land PRIME original series is scheduled to air in Fall 2010 on TV Land.
"We are thrilled to be working with TV Land!" states Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. "Our show will shine the spotlight on the adventure that is our life and the magic that holds us together."
"There is no denying the chemistry of this amazingly beautiful, smart and sexy couple," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "When I met them, I was immediately blown away by their relationship. They are so proud and supportive of each other. It's clear why this relationship works on so many levels. Our audience will love seeing their honesty, humor and often-outrageous antics."
Rinna and Hamlin have been married for over eleven years and became fan-favorites on "Dancing With the Stars" with Lisa dancing her way into America's living room in Season 2 and Harry in Season 3. Rinna, a spunky go-getter, is well-known for her fiery roles on "Melrose Place" and "Days of our Lives" and recently landed on the New York Times Best Seller list with her inspirational book, Rinnavation. Classically trained and Yale-educated, Harry Hamlin skyrocketed to fame over 20 years ago with his starring role in "Clash of the Titans." His show-stealing performance on "L.A. Law" - for which he garnered three consecutive Golden Globe nominations - turned Harry into a household name, landing him the title of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. Most recently, Hamlin appeared in the CBS thriller series, "Harper's Island." In 2007, the couple costarred in the long-running Broadway hit musical, "Chicago."
The deal for "Harry Loves Lisa" was brokered by Creative Artists Agency.
