MORE REASONS TO "LOVE LUST," SUNDANCE CHANNEL'S SERIES CHRONICLING THE HISTORY OF POP CULTURE PHENOMENA: SIX NEW EPISODES BEGINNING JUNE 7TH AT 10 PM

Six New Episodes Range from "Street Eats" to "Sex Symbols" to "The Undead"

New York - May 10, 2011 - From the foods we love to eat to the mythical creatures that love to eat us, Sundance Channel's "Love Lust" will take on our guiltiest pleasures this summer, including the undead (vampires, zombies, etc.), social networks, sex symbols and secret societies. Airing Tuesdays nights, beginning June 7th at 10 pm ET/PT, each hour-long episode of "Love Lust" provides a definitive and entertaining account of how life's cultural innovations progress from novelty to ubiquity.

The series kicks off the first of six new episodes on June 7th at 10pm et/pt with 'Street Eats,' a delicious account of the world's oldest and most beloved way to dine: on the street. Our experts chew on the savory history of the food trucks and sophisticated finger foods that have helped build communities and bring people together of every ethnicity and viewers will meet the surprising people that helped cook up the our cultural melting pot and the modern day pioneers that are elevating street food from grunge to gourmet.

The first installment of "Love Lust" debuted on Sundance Channel in February 2011, kicking off fashion week with stories of iconic sartorial staples like the 'Bikini,' and 'The Little Black Dress.' Four hour-long episodes unraveled the origin, and stitched together the evolution of various fashion must-haves.

The schedule for LOVE LUST is as follows:

"STREET EATS"

Tuesday, June 7th at 10pm

Whether it's an early morning fix, lunch on the go, or a drunken midnight meal, street food is the world's oldest and most beloved way to dine out. From sophisticated finger food to down and dirty pig-outs, street food is a global phenomenon that builds communities and brings people together. Now, street food has become an American obsession. All over the country, a new generation of gastronomic food trucks is bringing bold, inventive flavors to the people. LOVE LUST: STREET EATS explores this phenomenon's delicious history and looks at where it's headed.

"SEX SYMBOLS"

Tuesday, June 14th at 10pm

They're the people we fantasize about, the faces that stir up passion and the bodies that define hot. They're sex symbols - those icons of sensuality that captivate, titillate, and allow us to project our most intimate desires. From the curvaceous Marilyn Monroe to the androgynous idols of the 1970s, what makes a sex symbol is more than pure beauty. It's the ability to tap into and represent the social and cultural politics of the time. LOVE LUST: SEX SYMBOLS delves into how these unforgettable objects of desire personify generations, reflect popular tastes, and drive social change.

"THE SOCIAL NETWORK"

Tuesday, June 21st at 10pm

Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, and Friendster ... Social networks are the technological way we come together now, but they've been part of our lives since cavemen first gathered around a campfire. LOVE LUST: THE SOCIAL NETWORK explores not just the modern day roots of social networking, but also the surprising connections to social networking in the past, like the fashionable 17th century salons of Paris where every bon mot could be either a compliment or a dagger in the heart. As technology makes connecting with more and more friends easier, faster, and cheaper, the raw human element of touching another person's life may be sacrificed in the process. Is it better to have lots of friends at your fingertips or to run around outside with just a few? Sundance Channel's plugged-in experts break down the sites we love and take a fun look at our love affair with the social network.

"THE UNDEAD"

Tuesday, June 28th at 10pm

The Undead have risen, and they've taken over popular culture. Far from being a recent phenomenon, vampires and zombies have haunted us for centuries, evolving to fit the challenges of each culture and era. Simultaneously bewitching, repelling, seductive, and terrifying, these blood-suckers and brain-eaters embody both society's greatest fears and its secret, carnal desires. LOVE LUST: THE UNDEAD looks at how every generation defines itself with monsters, from Dracula to "Twilight" and from Vlad the Impaler to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

"THE PARANORMAL"

Tuesday, July 5th at 10pm

From sightings of UFOs to mysterious ghostly apparitions and unexplained psychic phenomena, all over the world, regardless of the country, culture, or era, the paranormal has always had some degree of prominence in the public psyche. Sundance Channel's LOVE LUST: THE PARANORMAL explores the deepest hopes, fears, and desires fueling our fascination with the paranormal. Our experts look through history to find a wide range of strange phenomena, revealing the people behind the stories and examine how UFOs, ghosts, and the occult have found their way from underground subcultures to the mainstream as well as where the future of the paranormal might be headed.

"SECRET SOCIETIES"

Tuesday, July 12th at 10pm

It takes more than a secret handshake to crack the world's most secret societies. Shrouded in mystery and cloaked by riddles, these hidden groups fascinate us, making our imaginations run wild with conspiracy theories both far-fetched and tantalizingly real. From their cryptic origins to their secluded initiation ceremonies, our thirst for information about secret societies is a witch hunt to last the ages. And just why are they so secretive anyway ... is their goal a fun diversion or total world domination? Whether it's "The Da Vinci Code", "The Godfather", or an episode of "The Simpsons," the media has stoked the fires so much that now it's hard to tell fact from fiction. LOVE LUST: SECRET SOCIETIES separates truth from rumor and give viewers an insider's look at the most captivating mysteries of past and present.
