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?

Viewers can go to MTV.com for sneak peeks of the show including bonus and extended scenes, plus exclusive interviews. For even more information and exclusive content, fans can "like" the "Catfish: The TV Show" Facebook page at https://facebook.com/MTVcatfish.
