Surprise Parties Added to Feel-Good Genre


UPN will give "average joes" the VIP treatment in a new reality series called Get This Party Started.  The show will feature party planners Harrison & Shriftman throwing an extravagant party each week for one unsuspecting person, set up by their friends and family.

Continuing the trend of feel-good reality shows, according to UPN the subjects may have “sacrificed for their loved ones” or “suffered a tragedy.” 

It will be hosted by former Extra correspondent Ethan Erickson and former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari.  The show, which does not yet have a confirmed airdate, will be executive produced by Allison Grodner (Big Brother).
