REELZCHANNEL BUILDS ON THE SUCCESS OF RETURNING "BEVERLY HILLS PAWN" WITH NEW SLATE OF GROUNDBREAKING, DISTINCTIVE AND FUN ORIGINAL PROGRAMS THIS FALL AND WINTER

Network Committed to Producing More Original Programming

"JFK: The Smoking Gun" Shared Global Premiere on Sunday, November 3, 2013 in U.S., Canada and Australia

Season Two of "Beverly Hills Pawn" Premieres Wednesday, November 6, 2013

"The Capones" Premieres Saturday, November 9, 2013

"Hollywood Hillbillies" Premieres January 2014

(Beverly Hills, CA) Sunday, July 28, 2013 - ReelzChannel, the fast growing cable and satellite network, today unveiled highlights to its 2013-14 season lineup with an emphasis on producing even more original programming.

"Building on the success we're enjoying with our first reality series Beverly Hills Pawn, we're introducing more series and characters for our viewers to enjoy," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel. "With next season's slate of groundbreaking, distinctive and fun programs, we're committed to delivering untapped stories to give viewers a rich, emotional and entertaining experience when they tune in to Reelz."

With Kennedy programming clearly in the network's DNA, Sunday, November 3, 2013 marks the shared world premiere of JFK: The Smoking Gun, an explosive special investigative documentary based on the work of veteran Police Detective Colin McLaren, who spent four years on the forensic cold-case investigation of JFK's assassination. The docudrama special will air simultaneously in the U.S., Canada and Australia, and using modern ballistics and evidence analysis, promises to solve the case and actually name the second shooter.

Among the new productions announced by Mr. Hubbard is the launch of a new reality sitcom, Hollywood Hillbillies in January 2014, which follows the lives of viral YouTube sensations Michael "The Angry Ginger" and his grandma "Mema," along with their wild southern-fried family as they move the family, and their showbiz ambitions, from their home in rural Georgia to the entertainment capital of the world - Hollywood.

Additionally, Mr. Hubbard disclosed that Reelz's hit reality series Beverly Hills Pawn has been picked up for a second season and will return Wednesday, November 6, 2013 with new episodes slated to run through March of 2014. Beverly Hills Pawn, starring store owner Yossi Dina, delves into the wonder and values of Hollywood memorabilia, high-dollar collectibles and fine jewelry, where the people and stories behind these rare items are even more extraordinary.

Previously announced reality series The Capones follows the drama-filled lives of the family related to, and sharing the name with, infamous gangster Al Capone as they try to keep the peace while running the family restaurant and all living together under one roof in Chicago. The Capones premieres on Saturday, November 9, 2013.

About Hollywood Hillbillies

Hollywood Hillbillies chronicles the hilarious antics of internet superstars Michael "The Angry Ginger" and his "Mema" as they trade in their simple country living in Georgia for the bright lights of Hollywood. With the fame and fortune from more than 150 million YouTube views, Michael, his grandma Mema, aunt Dee Dee, uncle "Big" John and the rest of the clan are ready to take Hollywood by storm. The question is not whether they are ready for LA, but rather is LA ready for these outrageous Hollywood Hillbillies? Hollywood Hillbillies is produced for ReelzChannel by Asylum Entertainment.

About JFK: The Smoking Gun

JFK: The Smoking Gun is a two-hour docudrama special chronicling the work of veteran Police Detective Colin McLaren, who spent four years on the forensic cold-case investigation of JFK's assassination and believes he has found the "smoking gun" that killed the president. What he had, and other investigators did not, was modern technology and access to all the evidence, facts and eyewitness testimony, and he has managed to solve a crime that is every bit as shocking and incredible today as it was when it happened 50 years ago. The docudrama is a Canada-Australia co-production and is produced by Muse Entertainment (The Kennedys) and Cordell/Jigsaw/Zapruder (Go Back Where You Came From) for Discovery Canada, SBS Australia and ReelzChannel in the U.S. It is written by Steve Lucas (Exhibit A: Secrets of Forensic Science), directed by Malcolm McDonald (The Extraordinary Tale of William Buckley) and produced by Jesse Prupas (March to the Top) and Michael Cordell (Anatomy of a Massacre). Executive Producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys) and Simon Egan (The King's Speech).
