FOX REALITY CHANNEL'S MOST SUCCESSFUL ORIGINAL FRANCHISE SOLITARY RETURNS WITH AN ALL NEW SEASON OF SOLITARY v4.0 SATURDAY, JANUARY 30th AT 10P/9C

LOS ANGELES, CA � The most controversial Fox Reality Channel original series, Solitary reloads for a fourth season, Solitary v4.0, on Saturday, January 30th at 10p/9c following the premiere of Seducing Cindy at 9p/8c. New twists and turns are guaranteed to test the contestants' endurance and lead them to the brink of psychological and physical collapse. Nine all new contestants and one returning player will push their mind and body to its limit, while obeying every whim of Val, their omnipresent digital taskmaster.

As with the first three seasons, the premise of Solitary v4.0 is simple: the last person to leave their pod � small, barren and completely isolated � wins bragging rights and $50,000. There are no councils, no alliances, and no votes. No one goes home until they themselves choose to push the red button and quit. All contestants willingly place themselves in their assigned "pods" to undergo grueling tests and treatments assigned by their sarcastic, omniscient digital taskmaster, Val. These individuals are subjected to sleep deprivation, extreme temperatures and other forms of environmental stress meant to "break" them, thus causing them to leave their pod and lose. Perhaps the most challenging part about Solitary is that contestants have no idea what the other contestants are doing or how much longer they must endure the competition.

Never-before-seen challenges for Solitary v4.0 include "The Virtually Amazing Race," a physically grueling and puzzling journey through a virtual maze; "Don't Fence Me In," where the contestants' tiny pods become even more claustrophobic as jail cells from which they must escape; "Slap Unhappy," which requires the guests to drive a sound meter into the red zone by slapping themselves; and "Head of Nails," which is part iron maiden, part electric chair, and 100% excruciating!

Fox Reality Channel will give viewers even more Solitary v4.0 with exciting online content, including 30 webisodes posted on foxreality.com. Videos will give users an opportunity to view special footage, which will not be seen on-air.

Solitary v4.0 is executive produced and co-created by Emmy Award-winning producer Andrew Golder (Identity, World Series of Blackjack, Win Ben Stein's Money) and Lincoln Hiatt (Unan1mous).

ABOUT THE PRODUCERS OF "SOLITARY"

Andrew Golder and Lincoln Hiatt are co-creators and executive producers of the "Solitary" franchise. They have brought the format to other countries including "Solitary: Brazil" and "Solitary: Germany." Their partnership dates back fifteen years to a start as writers on "Let's Make A Deal" for NBC. Golder, an Emmy award winner for "Win Ben Stein's Money," has produced more than a dozen game and variety shows including "Identity," "The Chair" and "You Don't Know Jack." Hiatt was the creator and executive producer of the hit FOX reality series "Unan1mous," as well as "Unan1mous: Russia" and his experience encompasses a long history in both reality television ("The Contender," "The Family") and feature films ("Godzilla," "Independence Day"). "Solitary" itself is the ultimate voyeuristic social experiment and reality game show. Funny and macabre, it reflects the lighter and darker sensibilities of the two men who produce it.
