IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST TYPE BUT WILL IT BE LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT? FIND OUT WHEN THE NEW MTV SERIES "CATFISH: THE TV SHOW" PREMIERES ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12 AT 11:00 P.M. ET/PT

Cat·fish [kat-fish] noun - a person who pretends to be someone they're not, using social media to create a false identity, particularly to pursue deceitful online romances

New York, NY (October 17, 2012) - Following the success of Rogue Pictures and Relativity Media's critically acclaimed 2010 documentary-thriller "Catfish," the new MTV series "Catfish: The TV Show" tackles the mystery and complexities of dating in a digital world. According to an MTV survey* of Millenials 18-24 years old, 1 in 4 has online dated, 1 in 2 has "a friend" who does it and, in the past three years, traffic to top 10 online dating sites has tripled. In a world where everyone is constantly connected digitally, social media has made communicating easier but this digital world might also complicate relationships. The 12 episode, hour-long series follows Nev Schulman, whose own online love drama was the subject of the "Catfish" film, and Max Joseph as they take viewers on a deeply personal journey that goes inside the stories of young people as their online-only romantic relationships collide with first-time, real-life encounters. "Catfish: The TV Show" premieres on MTV on Monday, November 12 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

In each episode, Nev and Max use their personal experiences, documentarian skills, plus a healthy dose of detective work to delve into the intricacies of each relationship. From a young woman who wonders why the guy she's communicated with for over 10 years won't meet her in person, to a single dad who hopes that his online girlfriend is really who she says she is, to a farmer who believes he's dating a former Miss Teen USA/Playboy model, Nev and Max will uncover the truth. Are these relationships based on reality or are they steeped in lies? And is there hope for a positive outcome when these digital romantic partners finally meet face-to-face?
