New Premieres Include "All About Aubrey," "Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings," "The World According To Paris" and "The Glee Project"

Network Announces New Development "Love Scouts (WT)" and "Dance Complex (WT)"

PASADENA, CA - January 13, 2011 - Coming off its third consecutive best-year-ever in all key metrics; its most watched year ever in primetime; and staking its claim as the fastest growing women's network among W18-49 and A18-49, Oxygen continues this momentum with an increase in its "Live Out Loud" programming by an additional 32% in 2011. The network continues to deliver its young female viewers fresh new concepts that speak directly to them including new original series "All About Aubrey," "Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings," "The World According To Paris," and "The Glee Project." The network also announced two new series in the development pipeline, "Love Scouts (WT)" and "Dance Complex (WT)." The announcements were made today by Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media.

"Our programming slate is filled with high concept series that continue to help define the "Live Out Loud" brand and speak directly to our young female audience," said Introcaso-Davis. "We've taken areas like friendship, dating, pop culture and celebrity and are serving them up in unique ways to keep our audience engaged and entertained."

In "All About Aubrey," the docu-series chronicles the ups and downs of former Danity Kane band member Aubrey O'Day as she records a new album, tries to find love and balances both. "All About Aubrey" will premiere on March 7 at 10 PM ET/PT.

In April, America's favorite celebrity couple - Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott - will help other couples make their dream weddings come true in the new series "Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings." Also launching in spring, the new docu-series "The World According To Paris" offers an unprecedented and voyeuristic glimpse into Paris Hilton's real life, behind the paparazzi cameras - her friends, family, and her successful businesses.

Rounding out the mid season schedule is "The Glee Project," a 10-episode unscripted competition show that finds and trains a group of phenomenally talented performers, who compete against one another to win a guest starring role on "Glee," one of the hottest shows on television. "The Glee Project" premieres in June.

The network announced two projects in the development pipeline: "Love Scouts" and "Dance Complex." "Love Scouts," produced by Target Entertainment, features a sexy entrepreneur who helps twenty-somethings find love in Hollywood. The over-the-top antics of the "love scouts" team, coupled with hard-to-please clients, makes for a fun and engaging look at the LA dating scene. "Dance Complex" a docu-series produced by Studio Lambert, offers a behind-the- scenes look at one of the hottest dance studios in LA and the dancers and choreographers that inhabit that unique world. These series join the previously announced "Best Ink" (WT), a competition series showcasing the most talented tattoo artists who create ink masterpieces on skin.

Returning series include the second season of the most watched freshman series in Oxygen history, "Hair Battle Spectacular," the competition show that showcases the most talented stylists in the world of fantasy hair design, the powerhouse hit show "Bad Girls Club" which premiered its sixth season on Jan 10. Also returning to the Oxygen schedule is "Love Games" the competition dating show that features three former "Bad Girls Club" stars looking for love; Oxygen favorite "Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, " and the previously announced "Bachelorette Party" all slated to premiere later this year.
