Oxygen Gears Up For Fifth Season Of 'Tori & Dean' With Marathons, Cast Tweeting


Oxygen Media is supporting the fifth-season bow of its Tori Spelling reality series with a ton of tweeting.
NBC Universal's women's-targeted service on March 29, beginning at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) will run a marathon of episodes from past seasons, accompanied by on-air tweets from Spelling, Dean McDermott, best friend Mehran, the Guncles and their superfans.
The tweets, presented as on-air snipes, provide new perspectives from the series stars and fans on seasons past. The on-air and online celebration at www. Oxygen.com, featuring interviews and family photos to virtual gifts and more tweets, continues all week, leading up to the return of Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood April 5 at 10 p.m.
That day, Oxygen will repeat its all-day marathon with seasons three and four installments, leading into the fifth-season premiere.
In the upcoming season, the series will take a closer look into Tori and Dean's family life and relationship, which will include a first-ever Spelling-McDermott cross-country family road trip. In the premiere episode, Tori and Dean feel a little disconnected -- to remedy the situation they decide to take Liam, Stella, the Guncles and dogs on a cross-country RV trip to visit their dear friend Patsy. Along the way, there are detours to some unusual pit stops, including an ostrich farm, a Cadillac graveyard and a 72-ounce steak family challenge.
