Pop Icons, 1970s on Tap for VH1


Hoping to capitalize on the success of its I Love the `80s series, VH1
will turn its attention to the decade of the 1970s in a 10-part special set to
launch in August.

The special is part of several upcoming programs set to debut on the network
this summer.

The 10-hour, five-night I Love the`70s special -- which looks at the
music, culture fashion, movies and television shows of the decade -- will bow
beginning Aug. 18, VH1 said.

In July, VH1 will premiere VH1's 200 Greatest Pop Culture Icons, a
look at people who have become cultural phenomena, the network said.

In addition, VH1 will return several series, including The Fabulous
, VH1 Goes Insideand Red Hot Red Carpet, as well
as a hip-hop version of its popular Bubblegum Babylon
