HOT FROM FOX...

"CALIFORNIA GURL" KATY PERRY GIVES A "FIREWORK" PERFORMANCE ON "RAISING HOPE," TUESDAY, MARCH 6

RAISING HOPE Moves to 8:00 PM to Kick off New Comedy Block

Katy Perry will guest-star in the time period premiere of RAISING HOPE airing Tuesday, March 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In the "Single White Female Role Model" episode, Perry will play RIKKI, a prison attendant who claims to be a friend from Sabrina's (Shannon Woodward) past.

"Shannon Woodward told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, 'Why not? Let's do your friend Katy a favor,'" said executive producer Greg Garcia. "Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious. And now people are telling me that Katy is also a singer. I sincerely hope that her appearance on the show helps her get her singing career off the ground. It's a tough business."

"Shannon Woodward is my best friend," said Perry. "A couple weeks ago, I was home, just toasting up a frozen chicken fillet when she called me up and asked if I wanted to do something 'fun' for a change and try out a guest role on her TV show. I thought, 'Sure, I have nothing else to do, and I like chillin' with my best friend.' Greg was nice, but I hope he's not secretly sabotaging my potential future career by type-casting me in the role of just a looker, so that I would never be able to play anything more challenging."

In the all-new episode, Sabrina is arrested after participating in an Occupy Natesville protest and is sentenced to two weeks in prison. Rikki (Perry), the prison attendant, will stop at nothing to make Sabrina's stay in the slammer as dreadful as possible, until she remembers their childhood friendship. Meanwhile, the mayor of Natesville (guest star Mary Birdsong) grants Virginia (Martha Plimpton) three wishes after she helps the town's top official avoid a public scandal.

Katy Perry is a global superstar whose two albums have generated a string of No. 1 hit singles and multi-platinum sales during the past four years. She has just concluded her sold-out California Dreams 2011 Tour with 124 arena performances internationally. The special edition "Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection" will be in stores March 26 and features three new songs, including "Part Of Me," which debuted at No. 1 on iTunes, with more than 400,000 downloads in its first week, following an electrifying performance at this year's Grammy Awards.

RAISING HOPE is produced by Amigos de Garcia Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Garcia serves as executive producer on the series.
