LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Circa Pictures and Production Co., Intl., Inc. (OTC:
CPPD) announced today they have signed an exclusive option agreement on the reality television program
Lucky 7 Pro.

According to Constantine Papadopoulos, Circa's CEO: "Poker programming has become a successful staple to
the small screen, and has many followers. When we first saw the format for Lucky 7 Pro, we realized this
program concept 'kicked basic poker programming' up two major notches and sets it apart from all the rest -
without losing the basic fan base. Now, poker can also gain appeal among the audiences of reality
programming. Lucky 7 Pro will begin as an elimination contest, where we will seek out then find the best
seven amateur female players, and then we will syndicate these amateurs into the tournament and professional
play circuits all the while keeping the cameras rolling in and out of the casino play. It is the first hybrid 'poker
reality' program. We will be going past the camera shots of the table and cards and go into the lives of our
new found players as they play as a team and develop into a unit."

The program was created and developed by Kaye Switzer who has a solid track record in television. Among
her achievements includes finding and co-creating "Judge Judy," one of the most successful shows in
syndicated television history. Switzer will also be Executive Producer of the program.

According to Tony Gouveia, Circa's CFO: "As CFO, I rarely get involved with the creative side of Circa, but
with his program, I will be directly participating in the marketing and production of this show as
Co-Executive Producer. I have been a regular cash game player for a number of years and have had the
pleasure of playing with some of the best cash game players in the world, many of whom would be familiar to
any fan of poker. I am impressed with the concept of this show and am glad it and Kaye Switzer are now a
part of Circa."
