The reality is, there’s never been a night like this! After five seasons, fans say goodbye to Lauren Conrad with her last appearance on THE HILLS during the one-hour season finale at a special time and date, Sunday, May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV. Fans won’t even have time to catch their breath as the evening is then handed over to SNL skit-master and host Andy Samberg at 9 p.m. ET for the 2009 MTV MOVIE AWARDS. MTV’s biggest night ever features highly anticipated performances from hip-hop heavyweight Eminem and burgeoning international rock stars Kings of Leon, as well as sneak peeks of the new Twilight film New Moon and summer blockbusters Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

It’s never easy to say goodbye. MTV keeps fans glued to the couch for a special eight-hour HILLS marathon beginning at 3 p.m. ET on May 31. For those who missed out on any of the double-crossing, boyfriend-stealing and altar-crashing antics of Season 5, catch up with Lauren and the gang. Helping viewers cope with LC withdrawal, Canada’s own Dan Levy and Jessi Cruickshank join viewers with interstitials within THE HILLS beginning at 7 p.m. ET, live from the red carpet at THE 2009 MTV MOVIE AWARDS. All of the action culminates to the highly-anticipated season finale of THE HILLS airing at 8 p.m. ET.

Before THE HILLS Season 5 comes to an end, aficionados Levy and Cruickshank bid Lauren Conrad farewell when she heads to Toronto to join them for what could be the last time when the THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW finale is simulcast live with the MTV U.S. on Monday, May 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET on MTV.

– National Team trains for 2008/09 World Cup season –

– One-hour special acts as prequel to upcoming 10-part snowboard series OVER THE BOLTS, commissioned by Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium –

Toronto, ON (October 30, 2008) – Canada’s national snowboard team embarks on the ultimate journey towards the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games in MTV PRESENTS: SUMMER SESSIONS. Premiering Thursday, Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, the 60-minute, original, reality-drama special is a prequel to the upcoming original snowboard series OVER THE BOLTS. Commissioned by Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium and produced by MTV, OVER THE BOLTS is the first of many original programs commissioned by the Consortium for CTV and its channels in advance of the 2010 Winter Games.

Filmed over the course of four weeks in Whistler, BC in June 2008, MTV PRESENTS: SUMMER SESSIONS features some of Canada’s most accomplished snowboarders, including Michael Lambert (Toronto), Kimiko Zakreski (Calgary), Dominique Vallée (Montreal), Jasey-Jay Anderson (Mont Tremblant, QC), Alexa Loo (Richmond, BC), Pat Farrell (Oakville, ON), and Simon Bonefant (Mont Tremblant, QC).

With 15 months remaining until the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, the Canadian national snowboard team isn’t wasting any time. This group of competitive athletes has started training for their long journey towards the podium. This “summer session” is the first of a series of training opportunities for these riders as they battle big mountains, bad weather – and each other – for the few coveted national team placements. Some of them will make the Olympic team – some will not.

MTV stays with the Canadian national snowboard team as they continue their journey in the new original series OVER THE BOLTS. Commissioned by Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium and produced by MTV’s in-house Field and Documentary Team, the 10-episode, half-hour series follows the team as they continue to prepare, train and compete for a spot on the Canadian Olympic snowboard team. OVER THE BOLTS, which began filming this month in British Columbia, is set to air on MTV in 2009. Executive Producers are Don Young, Mark McInnis and Ben Rotterman. Senior Producer and Director is Tom Chenoweth.
