(August 21, 2001 – Burbank, CA) – “RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT” will make its debut on The WB Network on Sunday, September 30 at 7:00-8:00 p.m. ET as the first part of a package of reality series to occupy the time period throughout the season. “LOST IN THE USA” was originally scheduled to occupy the time slot. However, due to issues at Artists Television Group, “LOST IN THE USA” will not be produced at this time for The WB. The second leg of The WB’s Sunday night reality hour, “NO BOUNDARIES,” will air as scheduled, beginning on Sunday, Dec. 2. “RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT,” which is hosted by Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”) is a televised version of the age-old franchise that introduces people to amazingly unique people and animals such as a woman who has undergone 25 plastic surgeries to look exactly like the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, an 8-foot-11 man and a dog that can do multiplication, play the piano and identify colors. “RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT” is produced by Columbia TriStar Television Distribution.
