MTV�S RETRO MANIA MARKS THE RETURN OF LAGUNA BEACH, THE HILLS AND DARIA
ON WEEKDAY MORNINGS BEGINNING JUNE 25, 9AM TO 12PM ET/PT
Some of MTV�s Most Beloved Franchises Return for a Nostalgia Filled Six
Week Morning Run Including the First Two Seasons Of Laguna Beach, the
Entire Series of The Hills and Daria

New York, NY, June 20, 2012 � Fan favorites Laguna Beach, The Hills and
Daria return to MTV for six weeks as part of its new Retro Mania
programming block, starting weekday mornings on Monday. June 25 from 9AM
to 12PM ET/PT until August 3, 2012. MTV�s Retro Mania includes the drama
filled first two seasons of Laguna Beach, the entire fabulous series run
of The Hills and a selection of MTV�s favorite episodes across five
seasons of the show that featured the coolest and wittiest anti-heroine
ever, Daria.
Throughout each week of MTV�s Retro Mania, several guest stars and super
celebrity fans provide commentary, interviews and hosting duties in
celebration of these shows including Stephen Colletti for Laguna Beach,
Audrina Patridge, Lo Bosworth, Stephanie Pratt & MTV's Layla Kayleigh
(The Hills superfan) for The Hills, and Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer,
hosts of the upcoming Nikki & Sara Show, as the superfan Daria
commentators.
MTV�s Retro Mania Schedule:
June 25 � June 29
Laguna Beach (Seasons 1 and 2)
In 2004, MTV unleashed the first season of Laguna Beach, which featured
gorgeous teens leading glamorous lives, and viewers discovered what lay
beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect community. It was time to
get to know the real Orange County. This series featured Lauren (aka
LC), Lo, Christina, Kristin, Morgan, Trey, Talan and Stephen as this
tight-knit clique grew up together while granting MTV an all-access pass
inside their lives. These rich kids did anything they wanted all day
long but their lives weren't perfect, and money definitely didn't buy
everything. From spring break to prom to graduation, the Laguna Beach
posse took us along for the ride of their lives and showed us the
real-life drama that unfolded during their pivotal senior years in high
school.
July 2 � July 27
The Hills (Seasons 1 � 6)
When season 2 of Laguna Beach ended, MTV followed LC to The Hills of
L.A. to watch her as she embarked upon a new fabulous journey. It's one
thing to be young and beautiful in Laguna Beach. It's another to be
young and beautiful in the city that values it most. The Hills followed
Lauren ("LC" from Laguna Beach) as she made the move from her O.C. digs
to Los Angeles, where she chased her dreams of entering the fashion
business while balancing a full course load at college and a full social
calendar. Through Lauren we met her new roommate, Heidi, who aspired to
make the LA nightlife her whole life, Audrina, a receptionist who moved
to LA in hopes of becoming a model/actress, and Whitney, Lauren's
fashionable co-worker and confidante at Teen Vogue. These four girls
took full advantage of being in the "in" crowd of LA, hopping from club,
to party, to hot restaurant as they lived the Hollywood lifestyle to the
fullest.
July 30 � August 3
Daria (Selection of MTV�s favorite episodes from the series)
In 1997, Daria spun off of Beavis and Butt-head into her own self-titled
series, a biting social satire about popular culture's obsession with
fashion and conformity, and fans quickly embraced the teen who was
willing to take on the world. Daria never wanted to be "popular." In
fact, she despised anything that even remotely pandered to the masses.
However, for five seasons, Daria�s sharp intellect -- and even sharper
tongue -- dissected anyone she deemed superficial � which was basically
just about everyone. With her trademark big, round glasses, combat
boots, blazer and pleated skirt, Daria unintentionally became a cultural
icon and the star of MTV�s wildly popular animated series.

I never really knew; by the time COX got around to getting us MTV the
music era was fading and I was already more the VHI age. :)
