SUNDANCE CHANNEL HAS DESIGN IN MIND FOR 2011 DEVELOPMENT SLATE

Cabler To Expand "Full Frontal Fashion" Franchise with New Series

Network Greenlights Acclaimed Series "Brick City" for a Second Season

New York - February 9, 2010 - Sundance Channel EVP and GM Sarah Barnett today unveiled a slate of new design-inspired series in development for Sundance Channel as well as four original series in development for the network's multiplatform strand Full Frontal Fashion.

Sundance Channel has also greenlit a second season of its acclaimed documentary series "Brick City." Produced by award-winning actor Forest Whitaker and acclaimed filmmakers Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin, the second season of "Brick City" promises to be another dramatic and no-holds-barred look at the immense challenges facing the city of Newark, NJ. Through the lens of local characters, including Newark's charismatic mayor, Cory Booker, the filmmakers will look at the issues that continue to confront a city undergoing tremendous change.

Development deals have been locked with Emmy-nominated production partners including Authentic Media, Full Picture, Magical Elves, Renegade 83 and World of Wonder, known for creating some of the most popular series on television today including "Man Shops Globe," "Project Runway", "Top Chef", "Ace of Cakes", and "Blind Date."

Barnett said: "With its focus on the latest from the worlds of fashion and design, our slate is tailor-made, literally, for Sundance Channel viewers. Our audience wants to be in the know about reigning tastemakers and trendsetters who are leading their respective industries as well as who and what is around the corner in terms of creativity and design."

Launched on Sundance Channel in September 2009, FULL FRONTAL FASHION is a multiplatform destination devoted to the latest from the heady world of fashion. In addition to original series on Sundance Channel, FullFrontalFashion.com features exclusive up-to-the-minute reports by contributors including Lynn Yaeger, Patrick McMullan, Aya Kanai, Robin Sayers and Cator Sparks. Beginning this week, the site debuts two new original series- "Catwalk Countdown" and Douglas Keeve's "Dirty Denim".
