[via press release from CBS]

CBS ANNOUNCES "FIRE ME�PLEASE," A NEW REALITY SERIES IN WHICH PARTICIPANTS VIE FOR A PINK SLIP

Hosted by Dave Holmes ("Total Request Live")

FIRE ME�PLEASE is a new four-episode, one-hour reality series that follows two people starting new jobs on the same day, with the goal of intentionally being fired as close to 3:00 PM as possible. The hidden camera series will premiere Tuesday, June 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Dave Holmes ("Total Request Live") will host.

To most people, getting fired seems like it would be the end of the world but, what if getting fired meant winning $25,000? On FIRE ME�PLEASE, participants begin jobs at the same time in the morning with the goal of getting fired as close to 3:00 PM as possible. The one getting fired closest to 3:00 PM without going over wins the cash prize. Contestants are not allowed to ask to be fired, break the law or say they are on a game show. As participants push the envelope to earn their pink slip, hidden cameras capture the action as they drive their managers and co-workers crazy with outrageous behavior.

Dave Holmes is a writer/actor/comic who started out on the comedy circuit and became a VJ on MTV in 1998. While at MTV, he hosted "Total Request Live," "Say What Karaoke" and "120 Minutes," among others. Currently, Holmes has a recurring role on "Reno 911," and a guest starring role on "Mad TV."

Eric Schotz ("Kids Say the Darndest Things") and Bill Paolantonio ("Kids Say the Darndest Things") are the executive producers for LMNO Productions and Magic Molehill Productions in association with BBC Worldwide. Colin Davis and Robin Meltzer are executive producers for BBC Worldwide.
