OXYGEN MEDIA GREENLIGHTS NEW SERIES 'BACHELORETTE PARTY'
Series Follows Brides-to-Be As They Say Goodbye to Singlehood
With the Help of the V.I.P. Staff at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas
NEW YORK - November 10, 2010 - Oxygen Media greenlights new series, "Bachelorette Party," which follows lucky brides-to-be on a memorable all-access, V.I.P. fantasy weekend with their "besties." The eight-episode series begins production immediately in Las Vegas. The announcement was made today by Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media.
It's every woman's rite of passage and "Bachelorette Party" makes the "last hurrah" an event to remember while cameras are in tow for the festivities. Each week, viewers will be introduced to a new bride-to-be and her friends, as the V.I.P. team at the Palms Casino Resort pulls out all the stops for an over-the-top celebration. The exclusive entourage, led by Palms executive Jon Gray, features V.I.P. hosts Elliot Wronski and Jason (JROC) Craig, and Jon's assistant Erin Ketner, as they go to great lengths to make the future brides' wishes come true...proving that nothing is impossible in Las Vegas.
"What better way to commemorate a woman's final days as a bachelorette than to throw her an unforgettable party in Las Vegas," said Introcaso-Davis. "Viewers will see the emotions, revelry and surprises along the way as we document this significant transition in a woman's life."
"Bachelorette Party" was developed by Gavin Polone of Pariah Entertainment and PB&J Television. Gavin Polone, Kathy Landsberg, Patty Ivins Specht and Julie Pizzi serve as executive producers.
