Popular and Beloved Cast Reunions Will Run on Facebook's Watch
Every Thursday

Time Inc. (NYSE:TIME) today announced that it will launch an
"Entertainment Weekly Cast Reunions" video series for Watch, Facebook's
new platform for video. The series, debuting today with the cast and
creators of Will & Grace, is now available on the new Watch
platforms on Facebook's mobile, desktop and TV platforms. The first
season of "Entertainment Weekly Cast Reunions" will run for eight
episodes, with a new episode airing each Thursday. Brand new, exclusive
cast reunions of Family Matters and Blossom are scheduled
to follow the Will & Grace premiere.

"Entertainment Weekly Cast Reunions," produced by Entertainment Weekly
Studios, is a true labor of love—fueled by EW's unparalleled access, and
its belief in the power and positivity of nostalgia. Entertainment
Weekly's editors bring pop culture friends and families back together,
right where they've always been, in our hearts and minds. Additional
reunions to be featured on Watch include the casts of Buffy the
Vampire Slayer
, Friday Night Lights, Pretty in Pink, Aliens, and
The Princess Bride
.

"We're thrilled to bring Entertainment Weekly's iconic cast reunions to
Facebook's Watch, as we continue our mission of delivering premium video
to viewers on all platforms," said David Flumenbaum, Executive Director,
Digital Video, Time Inc. "On Watch, we hope to build a new community
around one of Time Inc.'s signature shows, and deepen the connection
with an even wider audience."

"Our cast reunions are wildly popular and a distinguishing hallmark of
EW," added Entertainment Weekly Editor-in-Chief, Henry Goldblatt. "With
each reunion we strive to give our audience a truly unique gift. We're
proud to bring our unparalleled access to the most beloved entertainers
to Facebook's Watch."

"Cast Reunions," which will appear in the Hero section of the Watch
platform, is the third Time Inc. series to be featured on Facebook's
Watch. Earlier this month, Time Inc. announced the premiere of "Homemade
vs. The Internet," for Watch, and in August, People's "Celeb Moms Get
Real" debuted as one of the new platform's launch shows.
