Series Premieres October 6 At 10 P.M. ET/PT And Captures The Humor, Honesty And Often Outrageous Antics Of This Celebrity Couple

Beverly Hills, CA, August 6, 2010 - Celebrity Hollywood couple Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin allow TV Land cameras to take a candid and open look inside their marriage when the reality series "Harry Loves Lisa" premieres on Wednesday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Television and movie star Harry Hamlin stepped away from the spotlight over ten years ago to be a devoted father to his two beautiful daughters. Daytime and primetime TV star Lisa Rinna has grabbed headlines for years thanks to her famous lips and the often outrageous things that come out of them. Now that Harry and Lisa's children are older, both are eager to figure out what comes next in their lives. Throughout the series, viewers will get to watch them navigate the highs and lows of their hectic and fascinating Hollywood lifestyle. As they take the next steps in redefining themselves both personally and professionally while raising their children in the spotlight of fame, they manage to work through it all because of their amazing chemistry and sense of humor. "Harry Loves Lisa" brings to life the romantic notion that opposites attract as Lisa's playful spontaneity counteracts with Harry's more reserved demeanor. The series is executive produced by Jason Carbone ("Run's House") under his Good Clean Fun banner. Eliot Goldberg serves as executive producer from TV Land.

"Harry Loves Lisa" showcases the couple's highs and lows as Harry attempts to jumpstart his acting career, Lisa struggles with the tabloids and they both try to keep their clothing store Belle Gray afloat. The series offers full access to their lives as celebrities and shows that despite their many differences, this Hollywood marriage has managed to survive thanks to their values and undeniable chemistry. Whether Harry rolls his eyes or wrings his hands and Lisa is frustrated by his caution and frugality, Harry truly does love Lisa and the feeling is mutual. Their secret to marital bliss is acceptance... and a sense of humor.

"We couldn't be happier to be working with TV Land," said Rinna and Hamlin. "Our show is truly a no-holds-barred, revealing look at the ups, the downs and the craziness that is our lives. We even discovered things about ourselves and our marriage that we never knew! Viewers will be surprised to see an unexpected and lighter side of us and will see why our Hollywood marriage works."

"Harry Loves Lisa" is a truly honest look at the lives of this amazingly beautiful, smart and sexy Hollywood couple," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "Our audience will love watching them deal with the spotlight of fame and will also be able to relate to the ups and downs of their happy marriage and traditional family."
