TV One's 'The Ultimate Merger' starring Omarosa to premiere June 17th

(June 3, 2010) Real estate and entertainment mogul Donald Trump has partnered with TV One on a groundbreaking new reality series, Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger, in which Omarosa, The Apprentice cast member Trump helped make into a reality TV star, sets out in search of the perfect husband. Will she marry for love or for money? And can a bevy of bachelors tame this diva? Viewers will watch it play out weekly in one-hour episodes, which premieres on TV One Thursday, June 17 in a 90-minute special at 9 PM/ET, repeating at midnight.

"Omarosa was a great personality on the "Apprentice" that was watched by over 40 million people as it became the #1 show on TV. Omarosa is smart, witty, and difficult, but all of these qualities will make for some very interesting entertainment," says Executive Producer Donald J. Trump.

On the show, Omarosa will put a cadre of 12 hot, successful bachelors through a gauntlet of tests. These challenges are designed to play upon their weaknesses, test their business acumen, measure their seductive strengths, and draw out their true intentions. But these guys will fight back, and Omarosa may just meet her match. But this is all a part of the love dance, and viewers will get to see what happens when "sharks" mate.

Omarosa will be assisted in the challenges by a series of friends and celebrities, ranging from comedians George Wallace and Loni Love to TV One chef G. Garvin to former Video Vixen and author Karrine Steffans, plus several of Omarosa's former "Apprentice" co-stars, including Katrina Campins, Nick Warnock, and Troy McClaine. Pastor Jamal Bryant serves as Omarosa's spiritual adviser and is on hand to provide guidance and support to the bachelors when needed. And the bachelors will get to meet Mamarosa, Omarosa's mother.

"I am happy to be working with Donald Trump again on this exciting project," said Omarosa. "Love is serious business, and I approached this challenge with the same determination with which I do everything in my life, which is why I brought in a team of experts and good friends to help me put these bachelors to the test. And while it has been a much more emotional and dramatic experience than I ever expected, I look forward to making the Ultimate Merger."

"TV One is all about bringing our viewers an entertaining and compelling take on universal aspects of the black experience -- and there is no doubt that creating successful, loving relationships is an important element of that experience. There is also no question that Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger will be unpredictable, full of drama, and a guilty pleasure to watch," says TV One Senior Vice President of Original Programming Toni Judkins.

Donald Trump and Trump Productions President Andy Litinsky created the eight- episode reality series that is produced by Trump Productions LLC and Juma Entertainment. The Executive Producers from Juma Entertainment are Bob Horowitz and Lewis Fenton. The show was filmed on location at the Trump International Hotel and Tower: Las Vegas.

The executives in charge of production for TV One are Craig Henry and Jubba Seyyid.
