WE tv GREENLIGHTS NEW DOCU-SOAP "CYNDI" (WT), A BACKSTAGE PASS INTO THE LIFE OF MUSIC ICON CYNDI LAUPER

Series Produced by Mark Burnett's One Three Inc.

Premieres Summer 2012

NEW YORK, NY - March 21, 2012 - WE tv has greenlit the new docu-soap CYNDI (working title) showcasing the over-the-top life of Grammy winning music icon Cyndi Lauper. The series is slated to premiere on WE tv this summer and joins the network's line-up of originals that showcase an unfiltered view of modern family life from a woman's perspective. CYNDI joins the recently announced series KENDRA ON TOP, HAIR DIVAS: HOLLYWOOD (working title) and new episodes of the network's hit series BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES.

WE tv has ordered 12 half-hour episodes from Mark Burnett's One Three Inc.; production begins in April in New York.

"I'm really looking forward to reuniting with Mark Burnett and working with his team and WE tv on my new show," said Cyndi Lauper. "They make a powerful combination so I am going into this venture with an A Team! I love TV and this is something I've wanted to do for a long time."

"I am thrilled to continue our relationship with the amazing Cyndi Lauper," said Mark Burnett, "and very excited to be producing our first show for WE tv."

CYNDI takes viewers on an all-access journey into the personal and professional life of one of pop culture's most beloved and influential icons as she juggles her roles as rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, and philanthropist. With her hectic touring schedule, awards appearances, and recording sessions, Cyndi's family life with her husband of 20 years, actor David Thornton (My Sister's Keeper, The Notebook), and the couple's 13-year-old son, Declyn, is anything but "normal." CYNDI will explore the life of an artist who passionately pursues her creative endeavors, work demands and family life without compromising on any of them. She may be constantly running to keep up, but Cyndi's true colors show equally at a glamorous photo shoot and while cheering on Declyn at a hockey game.

CYNDI is produced for WE tv by Mark Burnett's One Three Inc. Mark Burnett and Cyndi Lauper serve as the show's executive producers. Annabelle McDonald is the executive producer for WE tv.
