 SCOTT BAIO SIGNED TO HOST 'BEHIND THE SCENES' SERIES
 ON E! ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION
 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Scott Baio has been signed to host E! Entertainment Television's nightly "Behind The Scenes" series, it was announced today by Marta Tracy, vice president, Talent & Development for E! The debut episode hosted by Baio will premiere Monday, Oct. 12 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
 The addition of Baio to the show marks an evolution in "Behind The Scenes," and the first time a host has been incorporated into the show. He will serve as guide to the series' half-hour looks at the inner-workings of the entertainment world, capturing its stars, directors, producers and technicians at work. Past "Behind The Scenes" episodes have visited the set of films such as "Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Lethal Weapon 3," television movies and series such as "Sinatra" and "Tales From the Crypt," and music projects from "Phantom of the Opera" to the making of Hammer's latest music video.
 According to Tracy, Baio's extensive experience in entertainment made him an ideal choice. "Scott's many years in Hollywood -- both in front of and behind the camera -- will make him a terrific guide for viewers who enjoy being part of the action as some of entertainment's most exciting projects are created."
 Baio most recently starred in the television comedy, "Baby Talk," and is well-known as the title character of the long-running series "Charles in Charge," of which he also directed several episodes. Earlier television roles included Chachi in the hit comedy "Happy Days," which launched the spin-off series, "Joanie Loves Chachi." Other credits include the films "Bugsy Malone" with Jodie Foster and "Zapped!" with Shelley Long, the HBO Family Playhouse "The Truth About Alex," and several Afterschool Specials, including "Stoned," for which he earned an Emmy nomination.
 "Behind The Scenes" is a popular element in E!'s prime time lineup, which debuted late last year; the lineup also includes the nightly series "Extreme Close-Up," "E! News Daily," "Talk Soup" and "Inside Word."
