Los Angeles, January 6, 2012 – On the heels of its most watched season ever, The Style Network’s hit series “Giuliana & Bill,” returns for a fifth season as Giuliana and Bill face their toughest challenge yet –cancer. As with all of life’s obstacles, the duo is prepared to face the challenge head on as a united team. This season will also celebrate many of the wonderful achievements the couple has accomplished such as the upcoming opening of RPM Italian in Chicago, which includes many of Mama DePandi’s recipes, while also continuing to dream of becoming parents themselves. Season five of “Giuliana & Bill” premieres in April on Style.
“Since day one of our marriage, Giuliana and I have let Style viewers into our lives from traveling with us to Italy for our wedding to following our struggles to conceive,” said Bill Rancic. “In 2011 we faced our scariest obstacle yet when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as we start 2012 I am happy to say that I am cancer free and focused on living in the present. Bill and I look forward to this new year of opportunity and good health and can’t wait to once again share our journey with our viewers,” said Giuliana Rancic.
After announcing her fight against breast cancer in October 2011, Giuliana has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from thousands of women and their families who have been touched by her personal story. As a result, Giuliana has teamed with Style to executive produce and star in “Fight with Style,” a series of PSAs educating viewers on breast cancer awareness which will air later this year on the network.
The fourth season of “Giuliana & Bill” marked its most watched season yet +23% in total viewers and +11% in W18-49 over its prior season.
