Six Episode Series Gives Unsuspecting People Their Best Day Ever

Amazing dreams really do come true when TV Land premieres its new original hidden camera series "Make My Day" on Wednesday, August 5 at 10:30 P.M. ET/PT on TV Land PRIME. The series, which premieres after "How'd You Get So Rich?" starring Joan Rivers, provides an exciting window into the eventful day of an unsuspecting and deserving participant as hidden cameras capture the weird coincidences, extraordinary situations and surprise celebrity appearances that occur for them over the course of a "normal" day. "Make My Day" is executive produced for TV Land by Michael Davies ("Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?").

"Everyone has somebody in their lives whose day they would love to 'Make,'" states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "This is a feel-good fantasy fulfillment show that makes that fantasy come true. And who knows, maybe someday the next time a person has an amazing day they will think they are on 'Make My Day!'"

From a wannabe rapper from New Jersey joining musician Lil Jon on a spontaneous live radio interview to a manager of a high-end pet store ending up on the set of a telanovela spoof with her favorite heartthrobs, Jesse Metcalfe and Cristian de la Fuente, to a guitar shop owner finding himself in a bowling match partnered with "The Sopranos" star Vincent Pastore and meeting football star Amani Toomer, the series guarantees each participant experiences their best day ever. The unsuspecting stars of each episode of "Make My Day" are bound to run into their favorite actors, be given tickets to their dream rock show or hang out with their most beloved professional athlete as each episode culminates into one of the best days of their lives.

"Make My Day" is a six episode 30-minute series produced for TV Land by Embassy Row ("Power of Ten" and "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?"), Monkey Kingdom and Sony Pictures Television.
