    The "Fastlane To Fame" Prize Package Revealed


    Shannon Bex, Garry Adams and Alex Boyd Advanced In Last Night’s Premiere Episode Six More Semi-Finalists To Compete On Wednesday, June 4 at 8:00 PM ET/PT

    BURBANK, Calif -- May 29, 2003 -- Over the past several weeks, world-renowned actor/director/choreographer Debbie Allen has been traveling the country looking for the best of the best on behalf of NBC’s new reality series “Fame.” Last night, Shannon Bex, from Lake Oswego, Oregon, Alex Boyd from McLean, Virginia and Garry Adams from Merrick, New York moved on in the competition. The series, which is hosted by multi-talented ‘N SYNC star Joey Fatone, features 24 semi-finalists chosen by Allen from four open cattle calls featuring thousands of hopefuls.

    The prize package, which was unveiled for the first time, features all the deals and connections needed to make it in the entertainment business - a “fastlane to fame.”

    Johnny Wright, President of The Wright Entertainment Group, one of music’s top management companies representing such top names as ‘N SYNC, Britney Spears, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Dream and Boyz II Men, will sign the winner to a one-year representation deal. The deal will feature a guarantee that the winner record a single under Wright’s record label Wire Records. A superstar producer like P. Diddy, Justin Timberlake or Jermaine Dupri will produce the single.

    The Debbie Allen Dance Academy, Allen’s world-class school, will provide the winner with one year of training. The school’s master trainers have come from all around the world: Kirov and Boishoi Ballet, Alvin Ailey’s American Dance Theatre, Broadway and more.

    The W Hotel Los Angeles, sleek in design and superior in service, will be providing the winner with one of their stylish suites for one calendar year while they ride the “fastlane to fame.”

    One of the top Hollywood agencies will guide their careers and living expenses will also be provided.

    “Fame,” the new ten-hour reality series moves to its regular timeslot on Wednesday, June 4 (8-9 p.m.ET).

    “Fame” is produced by MGM Television Entertainment and Stone Stanley Entertainment with David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and multiple Emmy-Award winner Jeff Margolis serving as executive producers.

    Any idea how this timing will work?

    I mean we've already seen 2 hours... and there are still three more elimination hours before we are faced with the final 12. So that leaves 5 hours to determine a winner out of 12 (plus any additional contestants chosen from website entries.)

    Assuming they add only 1 new contestant, they would still need to boot somewhere around 3 contestants each week from the final 12 to make it on time? Give or take a 2 hour finale or so?

    If that's the case... talk about streamlining the process in comparison to AI!!!

    Anyone have any idea?

    I hope not. Hopefully, the good ratings the show is receiving so far will convince NBC to expand the show so that one person is eliminate each week. However, considering the fact that three people are getting eliminated each week now, I think it would be a safe bet to say that's what they are going to continue to do. I hope not, though.
