The Jim Henson Company has chosen to utilize Disney-MGM Studios and the post-production facilities at Disney i.d.e.a.s. near Orlando, Fla., for their upcoming project, the "how-to'' creative-parenting series "Donna's Day.''

The announcement was made by Bob Allen, vice president of Disney Production Services Inc.

"We are excited to be working with The Jim Henson Company on their new production, 'Donna's Day,''' said Allen. "The production will utilize most of the one-stop-shopping facilities Disney-MGM provides. This project is part of our long and rewarding relationship with The Jim Henson Company.''

"Donna's Day,'' features columnist and award-winning author Donna Erickson, the nationally recognized expert on parenting. In each episode, Erickson uses innovative, easy-to-do and entertaining activities, recipes and strategies to strengthen relationships and communications between adults and children and to build family traditions.

"Donna's Day'' is being produced for cable by Jim Henson Television. Erickson is host and creator. Hugh Martin ("Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood'') is executive producer and director. Production on "Donna's Day'' begins Aug. 25, 1999.

"All of us at the Jim Henson Co. are delighted that we are producing this wonderful show at Disney-MGM studios,'' said Rod Perth, president, Jim Henson Television Group Worldwide.

"Donna Erickson has an extraordinary ability to relate to and connect with children and their parents; therefore, we are confident that families visiting the Disney-MGM studios will take great delight in watching the show being produced.''

The Jim Henson Company, an established leader in family entertainment for more than 40 years, is an independent multimedia production company; one of the top licensors in the industry; a leading publisher of children's books; and home to Jim Henson Television, Jim Henson Pictures, Jim Henson Interactive and Jim Henson's Creature Shop (TM).

The company has headquarters in Los Angeles with offices and production facilities in New York and London. The Jim Henson Company's Web site is located at www.henson.com.

Disney-MGM Studios is comprised of multiple sound stages, a unique Studio Backlot, and state of the art post-production facilities, including cutting-edge sound design capabilities, making it a convenient one-stop-shopping mall for all aspects of production. Located near Orlando, Disney-MGM Studios and Disney i.d.e.a.s. is an ideal spot for East Coast productions.
