FOUR MEN IN A CAR JUST TRY TO GET THROUGH THEIR DAY -- AND THE REST OF THEIR LIVES -- ON THE PREMIERE OF ABC'S NEW COMEDY, "CARPOOLERS," TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2
Monday, September 17, 2007 -- Life in the fast lane - the carpool lane, that is -- proves a hilarious occasion for male bonding for four guys from very different backgrounds in ABC's new Fall comedy series, "Carpoolers." These four use their commuter confessional as a way to commiserate about their jobs, their families, their hopes and their secrets, because in the carpool lane, no one can hear you scream. "Carpoolers," premieres TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network
Meet Laird (Jerry O'Connell, "Crossing Jordan"), a dentist and recent divorcé turned womanizer who was left with nothing intact but his libido. Laird's best friend, Gracen (Fred Goss, ABC's "Sons and Daughters"), is a mediator, a voice of reason, and the unofficial leader of the pack. Then there's self-sacrificing Aubrey (Jerry Minor, "Saturday Night Live"), with a brood of kids and a stay-at-home couch-potato wife, and newlywed Dougie (Tim Peper), the carpool neophyte who's willing to risk his life to save a coveted parking space for the team.
In the premiere episode, "Pilot," Gracen wonders aloud how his lovely "house flipper" wife, Leila (Faith Ford, ABC's "Hope and Faith," "Murphy Brown"), can afford to buy a $200 designer toaster and how his deadbeat son, Marmaduke (comedian T.J. Miller), who struts around the house in nothing but his jockeys and a smile, suddenly lands an internet job making more than his dad. By the end of the day, the guys have their mission: to steal back the respect Gracen deserves by any means necessary.
"Carpoolers" stars Fred Goss as Gracen Brooker, Faith Ford as Leila Brooker, Jerry Minor as Aubrey, Tim Peper as Dougie, Allison Munn as Cindy, T.J. Miller as Marmaduke Brooker and Jerry O'Connell as Laird.
Guest starring are Troy Evans as Mr. Heggie, Taylor Parks as Aubrey's daughter, Drew Matthews as Aubrey's son, Stephanie Reibel as woman, Scott Thompson as rich carpooler #1, Eddie Goins as rich carpooler #2, Irene White as Sue, Stephen T. Brophy as Ted and Andrew Cherry as Rikki.
"Pilot" was written by Bruce McCulloch and directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.
Bruce McCulloch ("The Kids in The Hall") created the series and serves as executive producer and writer. Marsh McCall ("Just Shoot Me"), Anthony and Joe Russo ("Arrested Development," "You, Me and Dupree"), Justin Falvey ("Las Vegas"), Darryl Frank ("Las Vegas") and David Miner ("30 Rock") also serve as executive producers. "Carpoolers" is a production of ABC Studios. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with a 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.
This episode will be available on abc.com the day after airing on the network for users to watch online.

caught up with him in at a private estate in Beverly Hills on Oct.

"We are going to have a small quiet wedding possibly this holiday
As for whether
he considers Rebecca a bridezilla, Jerry assured Star: "No. Not
at all. She couldn't be further from it. She is amazingly calm. However,
I am a groomzilla. I just get very nervous and I don't know exactly
what to wear and I just want everything to be right!"
asked if he'd like to have a family, Jerry beamed: "Definitely.
I would love to have kids in the future."
In the meantime,
the couple already has their holidays mapped out. For Halloween, Jerry
says, "Rebecca and I are going to Universal Studios. It's haunted
and we wear masks so we don't get bothered. It's usually really scary
and we can't wait for it."
on to Thanksgiving. "This year Rebecca's mom is going to cook,
which is good because if I were to cook, everyone would get salmonella!"
Jerry joked. "We will have a turkey and it's exciting because
Rebecca's mom is a really good cook. It's a change having a home-cooked
meal for Thanksgiving. My family is famous for getting a turkey at
Koo Koo Roo, putting it in the oven and then claiming they cooked
it themselves, even though they just re-heated it!"
And for the
end of the year, Jerry crowed: "We do a lot of lights on the
house," says Jerry. "We are very big on holiday lights!"
A few weeks
ago, Rebecca Romijn asserted that she and Jerry will be getting married
and said "There will be a wedding. It's not going to be anything

PLANTED VINEYARD FOR ROMIJN
O'CONNELL planted 800 grapevines for fiancee REBECCA ROMIJN, after
being inspired by a romantic getaway to California's wine country.
The actor followed up his visit by planting 800 Merlot and Cabernet
grapevines on the property the couple owns north of Los Angeles. Romijn
says the gesture was "the most romantic gift". The burgeoning
vineyard is now a favourite spot for the pair to spend their leisure
time. The X-MEN beauty has placed a rocking chair in the vineyard
and brings her two poodles and German shepherds with her while she
reads scripts and O'Connell shoots golf balls or tends to the vines.
The couple's home was a former brothel in the 1930s called The Wagon
Wheel Ranch and, taking into account the history of their home, they
plan to eventually bottle Wagon Wheel Wine.

Rebecca Romijn Recalls Falling For Jerry O'Connell
fell for her fiancé Jerry O'Connell after he agreed to help
her film a documentary in Las Vegas, Nevada. The actress was working
on a project researching the behind-the-scenes workings of the Bellagio
Hotel's elaborate water fountain show and convinced O'Connell to sign
"We'd met years ago at a party and then re-met again in Las Vegas
when I was at a party when I was about to start working on a documentary
with a friend of mine. We had this fantasy of choreographing the giant
fountains at the Bellagio Hotel. We actually did the fountain show
and it's in permanent rotation and plays four times a day. Jerry overheard
us talking about it when we were in Vegas and said, 'Can I be your
boom operator on the movie?'"
joined the documentary crew a week later and worked the large sound
microphone during the shoot. She adds, "He worked with us for
10 days on this documentary and that's how we met. We made him wear
a half-shirt, so every time he would hold the microphone up, his shirt
would come up (to the top of his chest) and he was so game I was like,
'You're cool!' It was funny."
ROLE PLAYS WITH O'CONNELL
X-MEN star REBECCA ROMIJN and fiance JERRY O'CONNELL frequently dress
up as goofy characters and go out in public places as a joke. The
couple dress up in outrageous costumes, complete with special hair
and make-up. She explains, "We're not nightclub people, our idea
of fun is getting dressed up. "I have a costume closet at home.
Part of it is like daring each other to go out in public dressed like
that." The couple were addicted to US reality series SHOWDOG
MOMS AND DADS and became obsessed with one of the couples on the show.
She adds, "Showdog Moms and Dads is like (the movie ) BEST IN
SHOW, but with these very overzealous dog owners. "There was
one couple in particular we were inspired by and Jerry and I decided
to dress up like them and go to Wal Mart Portrait Studio and have
our portrait taken. That's our idea of fun."

to guard her privacy, especially since she's engaged to another actor,
Jerry O'Connell. "I'd like to talk about Jerry all day long,
but I just can't. It's too private," she says. Still, she can't
help herself from divulging a few sweet details. For instance, when
he's on hiatus from "Crossing Jordan," O'Connell drives
her to and from work every day. "It's an extra hour or two that
we get to spend together," she says. "We run lines and bounce
ideas off each other. And it's really fun." Carpooling with Rebecca
and Jerry—that's what passes for excitement when you're working 18-hour
days on a new show. "I've already gotten the speech from Jerry
where he's, like, 'You have to be able to go out to dinner and have
a glass of wine and get your mind off 'Pepper Dennis'," she says.
After all, variety, not pepper, is the spice of life.

to have fun no matter what she does," says her fiancé,
In the summer
of 2004 Romijn flew to Las Vegas to produce a project of her own,
a documentary titled Wet Dreams about the slipper challenges of choreographing
the fountains at the Bellagio hotel (an insanity -- as opposed do
a vanity-- project, you might say). It was there she reconnected with
O'Connell, whom she had met at a party a few years earlier. The Crossing
Jordan actor, already smitten, volunteered his services on the documentary.
"I'd have done a lot crazier things to have spent more time with
her," he says. 'If she had asked me to paint her house, I would
have said yes." From Romijn's veiwpoint, it was an ideal way
to test the waters of their mutual attraction. "There was a group
of us, and we all went out together to shows at night -- it was great.

ways, in O'Connell she has found someone who appreciates a gabfest
as much as she does. The garrulous couple share a perpetual effervescence
and zany elan. Whether trysting at quirky hotels like the Madonna
Inn on California's Central Coast, or skipping to the DMV to renew
a license, they do it with a blithe spirit. Last summer, back from
a decadent wine country jaunt, they added 800 vines of merlot and
cabernet grapes to their expansive ranch, with its lemon grove and
hundreds of oak trees. "We're vinters!" Romijn says excitedly.
"The vineyard was a gift from Jerry. It was the most romantic

("When I think of wilderness I think of Washington Square Park,"
he deadpans), while Romijn is the classic outdoorsy California girl.
"It's been really fun showing him California, "Romijn says,
adding that they're still deliberating over the location of their
upcoming wedding. While they got engaged at his parents' Manhattan
apartment, the wedding will most likely take place in her home state.
What is certain is that it will be a much less lavish affair than
her first one, in 1998, complete with an ivory gazar-and-Chantilly-lace
Badgley Mischka gown. "It was big, and I don't need to do that
again. It's completely different now -- we're not doing this for anybody
but ourselves." And though she scoffs at rumors that she's pregnant,
Romijn says she's ready for kids.
O'Connell doesn't understand the fuss: "I never saw her as being
overweight, and I feel like she's too skinny right now."
