WHAT:      "Death of a Celebrity: A PR Nightmare?"

           A local, national, and international media feeding frenzy was on
           almost from the moment Anna Nicole Smith was found unconscious
           at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood.  Her
           celebrity, questions surrounding how she died, and the status of
           her infant daughter were just a few of the reasons Anna Nicole's
           passing continues to make news around the globe.

           PRSA Gulfstream takes an inside look at the death of a celebrity
           through the eyes of three people who were there.  Learn how
           public relations professionals and the press operate in crisis
           mode and how situations can effectively be managed by
           understanding what both sides want and need.
