The Style Network Announces New Makeover Series "Glam Fairy," A Spin-Off of the Network's Ratings Powerhouse Docu-Soap "Jerseylicious"

New One-Hour Makeover Format Show from Endemol USA Follows Outrageous New Jersey Makeup Artist Alexa Prisco

Glam Fairy (n) - A name signifying one who has the capacity to transform a person by waving metaphorical wands thereby releasing a Glamazon.

Los Angeles, April 12, 2011 - The Style Network has ordered ten episodes of "Glam Fairy," a spin-off of the network's most-watched and highest-rated series, "Jerseylicious." Produced by Endemol USA, the new makeover format show takes viewers inside the glittery, high-energy world of makeup artist extraordinaire and "Glam Fairy" herself, Alexa Prisco. After leaving the Gatsby Salon, Alexa establishes a new business headquarters - 'The Glam Factory' - to serve as home base where she can showcase her makeover magic and build up clientele. Each fashion and beauty-centered episode will follow Alexa, accompanied by her team of "fairies," as she takes on new clients and uses her signature New Jersey style to transform women with hot new looks for all kinds of special occasions. The series will premiere this October on Style.

"I'm thrilled that the hit status of 'Jerseylicious' has spawned 'Glam Fairy' and launched Alexa from a pivotal character in the series to the star of her own makeover show. Her tremendous viewer popularity and extensive expertise make her a natural to continue to sprinkle her fairy dust over more deserving women with her own show," said Salaam Coleman Smith, President, The Style Network.

"'Glam Fairy' is the first exciting spin-off of the growing 'Jerseylicious' brand," said David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America. "Our show's loyal and growing fan base has obviously responded to Alexa's talent and vibrant personality, and we couldn't be happier to extend our partnership with Style for another successful series."

Alexa Prisco is one of the top on-location airbrush makeup artist in New York and New Jersey, and her "fairies," including her best friend and client liaison John, and "Jerseylicious" hairstylist Briella, have business booming despite having just opened their new headquarters, 'The Glam Factory.' Providing hair, makeup and even photo services to women looking to be glamorous is not an easy task and one Alexa can't take on by herself so she decides to hire a young new assistant, also named Alexa, who is eager to follow in her glittery footsteps. Dubbed A2, the new assistant looks to be a promising addition to the 'Glam Fairy' team and shares Alexa's vision in taking business to the next level, but will need to earn her position as a reputable fairy.

In the new series, Alexa and her team's transformations will include a Weight Watchers group who have reached their goal weight and want to celebrate with "after" photos; a group of military wives looking to spice themselves up with retro "pin-up" shots, and a woman who wants to celebrate being 40 and single with a makeover and grand entrance at her "Fab at 40" birthday party. Each emotional episode culminates in a big reveal showcasing Alexa and her team's astounding makeovers.

In addition to revealing Alexa's life-changing makeovers, the series also explores her personal life, including Alexa's attempt to get her body back in shape when the team signs up for a "glammy boot camp." Alexa also begins to think about her future family life and explores a variety of options, including freezing her eggs. And in an effort to clear Glam Factory's spiritual energy, Alexa directs her team to hire a real-life Ghostbusters company.

The premiere of the "Glam Fairy" special on January 30, 2011 drew nearly 250,000 total viewers, which exceeded the time period average by more than +70% thanks to a strong delivery among Women 18-34. The special has gone on to reach over three million total viewers to date. In the special, Alexa showcased her makeover magic on a group of "boring" sorority girls, turning them into total babes by making their beauty on the outside match what's on the inside.

"Glam Fairy" is produced by Endemol USA for The Style Network. Three-time Emmy winner Alex Duda is the Executive Producer, joined by Style Executive Producers Sarah Weidman and Merah Chung.
