    So Little Time
    So, what is it that there's so little time? Well, it's Mary-Kate and Ashley's new TV Series for the Fox Family Channel!

    They play two Malibu teens dealing with their parentsí separation. We follow the girlsí lives and adventures both at home and at Ocean View High.

    Macy and Josh Carlson (Mom and Dad) ran a highly successful fashion design label together for years, until Josh hit his mid-life crisis. In the spirit of "finding himself", he moved out to a trailer which happens to overlook his former Malibu beachfront home. When type-A Mom and laid-back Dad get together on occasion, itís just like old times...lots of bickering. The girls split time between Momís swank beachfront digs and Dadís cozy but cluttered bohemian trailer. Mom and Dad are helped out by Manuelo - the familyís flamboyant nanny.

    Ashley, like her mom, is an assertive overachiever with her eye on Travis, the brooding dreamboat next door. By contrast, Mary-Kate is more like her Dad - laid-back and down to earth. Mary-Kate has the misfortune of being hounded by Larry, the over-eager boy from school who has a huge crush on her and will pull any stunt to get her attention.

    Winning London Plot
    On March 27th, join Mary-Kate and Ashley as they tour the historic sites of England, including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Parliament in their latest movie, "Winning London." "Winning London" follows Mary-Kate and Ashley to England as they participate in their high school's Model UN (United Nations) competition. Once on British soil, adventure ensues as the girls take in the sites, survey the culture, meet some guys and learn that -- ultimately -- winning isn't everything.

    Our Lips are Sealed DVD
    Also being released on March 27 is the Our Lips are Sealed DVD. The DVD contains special features not included in the video cassette such as: * Special introduction by Mary-Kate and Ashley
    * Behind-the-scenes features
    * Feature-length commentary by Mary-Kate and Ashley
    * "Fun with Fashion" segment, featuring fashion highlights from the movie
    * Australian Bridgewalk - watch Mary-Kate and Ashley as they climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge

    Winning London Sountrack

(Mary-Kate and Ashley's company) signed an exclusive global licensing agreement for the production of soundtracks as well as compilations for the "Mary-Kate and Ashley" brand.
