(February 3, 2003 – Burbank, CA) - Just one month after the series premiere of The WB’s “HIGH SCHOOL REUNION,” a green light has been given for a second installment of the network’s hit reality series. The record-setting ratings, beginning with the January 5, 2003 premiere, proved strong enough for the network to give the go-ahead to seven new episodes that will shoot in spring 2003. “Working with Mike Fleiss has been amazing,” said Keith Cox, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming. “He delivered a sexy, unpredictable program that gave our mid-season schedule a shot in the arm. We always envisioned ‘HIGH SCHOOL REUNION’ as a franchise and we wanted to move quickly into production of the next installment.” “We had a lot of fun the first time and are delighted the viewers liked the show as much as we did,” said executive producer Mike Fleiss. “We feel our new classmates will give us just as many laughs, romances and surprises as our first group did.” The second-semester classmates will be from the 1993 graduating class of Round Rock High School in Round Rock, Texas, a town just north of Austin. The show’s format will remain the same: a select group of former classmates whose lives were intertwined during high school will be reunited ten years later at an undisclosed fantasy location. As the first reunion classmates proved, no matter how successful, confident and beautiful these people have become since graduation day, each of them will come face-to-face with the person they were in high school. “HIGH SCHOOL REUNION” is executive produced by Mike Fleiss and is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions.
