HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!TV) 2013/9/2 – “‘Party On’ is a bold, fun VIP tour of the most sparkling party destinations on the planet,” says E! programming and development EVP Jeff Olde. “We are excited to take viewers around the globe and behind the velvet ropes for fun in the sun at only the hottest, most elite vacation locales.”
Emmy-nominated Bold and the Beautiful actress and singer Jacqueline M. Wood will host. Each episode will visit one glamorous location where Jacqui will spend 48 hours checking out the sights, tasting the delectable cocktails and cuisine, and trying extreme activities that make each destination one-of-a-kind. Jacqui is joined by celebrities, jetsetters and local legends who share her two-day adventure and keep the party going as she experiences the best of the best of each hotspot.
“We love the ambition that everyone at E! has for the show and are thrilled to be working with them,” says Monkey Kingdom executive producer David Granger. “Jacqui is a brilliant host and we all see a wonderful opportunity to produce something very new and different given the high end glamour and sun soaked mischief that Europe has to offer.” Party On is produced by the BAFTA award-winning production company Monkey Kingdom, part of NBCUniversal Television Production, and is executive produced by David Granger, Will Macdonald and Daniel Marlowe.
