Logo Greenlights New Docu-Reality Series "Sex Rx" (WT) and Expands "The A-List" Franchise to Dallas for 2011

Logo Also Orders New Seasons of Hit Series "The A-List: New York," "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race" Along with 2012 Installment of the "NewNowNext Awards" Tentpole

LOS ANGELES, April 18, 2011 -- Logo, the entertainment network for gays and their families and friends from MTV Networks, a unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), today announced a number of greenlights for the 2011/2012 programming year. The slate features two new projects, including the expansion of a hit franchise and four returning viewer favorites.

On the eve of the premieres of two previously announced originals, "Setup Squad" (premiering April 25th) and "Pretty Hurts" (premiering May 9th), Logo is augmenting its 2011 originals lineup with the docu-reality series "Sex Rx." "Sex Rx" will cast an honest and unflinching eye on the world of sex addiction, dysfunction and relationships in a unique show that shadows clients who are seeking treatment for sexuality issues in a group setting.

2011 will also mark the expansion of Logo's popular "A-List" franchise with a new locale, cast and series. Proving you don't have to reside in N.Y.C. to be fabulous, the cast of "The A-List: Dallas" is set to gallop onto the reality scene with a group of Dallas-based gay men and sassy straight women who lead racy and high-limits lives.

"Sex Rx" and "The A-List: Dallas" are slated to premiere in the fall prior to the second season of "Be Good Johnny Weir" which is currently in production exclusively for Logo's winter 2012 line-up.

Also returning in 2011/2012 will be new seasons of Logo's highest-rated, hit series "RuPaul's Drag Race," its dishy companion series "Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race" and "The A-List: New York." Logo's "NewNowNext Awards" tentpole event will also return in 2012.

"Logo continues to extend our lane of unique, provocative programming that not only engages our trend-defining audience but gets them talking on all our platforms," said Dave Mace, Senior Vice President of Original Programming, Logo. "'Sex Rx' is an eye-opening show that isn't for the timid and we hope to continue to turn 'A-List' heads with a new season in New York and now spinoff in Dallas. We're also honored to once again super serve the fans of our real 'Head Queen in Charge,' RuPaul, with new seasons of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and 'Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race.'"

Details on greenlights follow:

"SEX RX" (WORKING TITLE) (10 Episodes - 1 Hour) Premieres Fall 2011

Noted sex addiction specialist, Christopher Donaghue, offers guidance to a sex treatment group in this series that tracks each member's progress around infidelity, trust issues, relationship intimacy and sexual addiction.

Each week, the cameras break away from the group and provide a deeper examination into the treatment process for one group member. While the clients come from all walks of life and attend the group for a multitude of presenting symptoms such as depression, self-destructive behavior and relationship issues, sexual dysfunction and sexuality issues are at the root of every case.

Christopher Donaghue is a Sexuality Specialist in private practice. Christopher has extensive clinical experience working with adults in individual and group psychotherapy in both inpatient and outpatient settings and is the former Program Director at La Ventana Rehab's Sexual Addiction Program. His clinical specializations include the sexuality spectrum and addictive behaviors such as sexual compulsivity/sex addiction and substance abuse, as well as mood and relational intimacy disorders.

Executive Producers: Julie Pizzi and Patty Ivins Specht / PB&J Television, Dewayne Jones and Jai Rodriquez

"THE A-LIST: DALLAS" (11 Episodes - 1 Hour) Premieres Fall 2011

Logo says "Yee-Haw!" to Dallas with the expansion of its hit docu-reality "A-List" franchise from the producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Deep in the heart of Texas, this cast of socialite scene-making men and women are out to prove their New York counterparts have not cornered the market on having big dreams and bigger dramas. Dallas has recently surged onto the pop culture radar as a focal point for food, fashion and fabulous, earning it a spot worthy of exploring with this top-tier cast of natives.

Executive Producers: Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh for True Entertainment

Details on returning series follow:

"RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE" (Returning Series, 14 Episodes - 1 Hour) Premieres Winter 2012

"RuPaul's Drag Race" made history as it premiered as the first-ever reality television show featuring drag queens. And on the heels of its most successful season yet, Logo has ordered a fourth season of its original competition series. RuPaul, the world's most famous drag queen, has pushed the boundaries of popular culture on an international level and will be back to search the country for another drag queen superstar in the making.

On the first three seasons of "RuPaul's Drag Race," thousands applied but only a handful of the nation's hottest, most glamorous drag queens were chosen to fight for the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar." Now a new batch of drag performers will have an opportunity to fill RuPaul's high heels when he proclaims, "Gentlemen, start your engines. May the best woman win!"

While "RuPaul's Drag Race" took a look at the outrageous world of drag, it also revealed the courage, perseverance and humanity of men who have overcome and endured the hardships of a masculine dominated society that mocks and makes fun of men who act like women. Not only did viewers get a bird's eye view of what it takes for these chameleons to transform themselves but were also able take away the secrets of the artistry of drag. This fourth edition will reflect the same hallmarks as well as the now classic "lip synch for your life" segment.

Executive Producers: World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and RuPaul Charles serving as Executive Producers; Chris McKim also serves as Executive Producer.

"UNTUCKED: RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE" (Returning Series, 12 Episodes - 30 Minutes) Premieres Winter 2012

One of Logo's highest-rated originals, "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked!" is the all-access pass to the drama that you didn't see on the runway of "RuPaul's Drag Race" -- the backstage bitchiness, the catfights, the struggles, the tears and the secrets. See what happens behind the scenes when the queens let their tucks breathe... and let their emotions flow. Will the drag queens crack under the pressure of competing to become "America's Next Drag Superstar?" RuPaul narrates us through the trials and tribulations of what happens when a gaggle of queens are up against each other... and themselves.

Executive Producers: World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and RuPaul Charles serving as Executive Producers and Chris McKim and Steven Corfe as Co-Executive Producers.

"THE A-LIST: NEW YORK" (Returning Series, 11 Episodes - 1 Hour ) Premieres Summer 2011

They're stacked, packin', fierce and ambitious! Logo's much buzzed about docu-reality series, "The A-List: New York," returns with cast members Reichen Lehmkuhl, Rodiney Santiago, Mike Ruiz, Ryan Nickulas, Derek Saathoff and Austin Armacost. Also added to the mix this season will be a straight female cast member who's outrageous enough to "hold court" with the veteran cast. The show follows these members of New York's social elite plus their families, best girlfriends, and romantic interests as they navigate being fabulous in the city. Follow their tangled friendships, rivalries and aspirations as they hop from benefit to beach house to pied-a-terre, dropping serious coin on toys for grownups all along the way. From the producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," "The A-List: New York" explores the excess and envy of a new population, taking its rightful place alongside the greatest of guilty pleasure television.

Executive Producers: Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh for True Entertainment
