                               SERVICES AGREEMENT

                  SERVICES AGREEMENT, dated as of February 9, 2001(this
"Agreement") by and between LAKESIDE VENTURES LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company with principal offices located at 210 East 39th Street, New York, New
York 10016 ("Lakeside"); and HOLLYWOOD MEDIA CORP., a Florida corporation, with
principal offices located at 2255 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33413 (the
"Company").

                                    PREAMBLE

                  WHEREAS, the Company desires to retain Lakeside to provide the
Designated Services (as defined herein) for the Service Period (as defined
herein);

                  WHEREAS, Lakeside wishes to provide the Company with such
Designated Services;

                  WHEREAS, the Company wishes to acquire such Designated
Services by the issuance to Lakeside of Shares (as defined herein) of the
Company on the terms and conditions contained herein and Lakeside is willing to
provide the Designated Services on such terms;

                  NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties, intending to be bound hereby, do
agree as follows:

                  1.       Designated Services; Issuance of Shares.
                           ---------------------------------------

                  1.1      Designated Services, Etc.

                  (a)      Designated Services. For the period of One (1) year
from the date hereof (the "Service Period") the Company has retained Lakeside to
furnish, and Lakeside shall furnish, the services described in Exhibit A hereto
(the "Designated Services").

                  (b)      Payment Notices. The Company shall notify Lakeside in
writing (a "Payment Notice") of any payment obligation of Lakeside with respect
to the Designated Services not earlier than thirty (30) Business Days and not
later than ten (10) Business Days prior to the date such payments are due (the
"Due Date"). Each Payment Notice shall set forth the amount of the payment to be
made by Lakeside, the identity of the payee, the Due Date therefor and such
other pertinent information as shall permit Lakeside to timely make such payment
to the respective payee, and to properly account for the same in its books and
records. In addition, each Payment Notice shall also set forth the aggregate
dollar value of the Designated Services provided by Lakeside to the Company as
of the date of such Payment Notice (but excluding any payment to be made by
Lakeside on the Due Date referenced therein). In no event shall Lakeside be
required to provide the Company with Designated Services pursuant to this
Agreement with an aggregate dollar value in excess of $800,000 (the "Designated
Services Cap"). Lakeside shall notify the Company in writing within ten (10)
Business Days of receiving any Payment Notice in the event that the amount
payable by Lakeside on the Due Date specified in such Payment Notice would cause
the aggregate dollar value of the Designated Services provided by Lakeside to
the Company pursuant to this Agreement to exceed the Designated Services Cap.
For purposes hereof, "Business Day" shall mean any day that is not a Saturday,
Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in New York City are authorized or
required by law to remain closed.

<PAGE>

                  (c)       Notice of Payment. Lakeside shall notify the Company
in writing on or prior to the Due Date with respect to a Payment Notice of the
payment by Lakeside of the amount set forth in such Payment Notice or, if
Lakeside fails to make such payment, the reason therefor.

                  1.2      Issuance of Shares, Etc.
                           -----------------------

                  (a)      Issuance of Shares. In consideration of Lakeside's
(i) providing the Designated Services to the Company during the Service Period,
and (ii) making the payment to the Company specified in Section 1.2(b) below,
the Company has authorized the issuance and sale to Lakeside of One Hundred
Sixty Thousand (160,000) shares of its common stock, $.01 par value per share
(the "Shares") (the "Payment"). The Shares have the rights and provisions as set
forth in the Company's Articles of Incorporation, as amended from time to time
(the "Certificate of Incorporation"). Subject to Section 6.2 hereof, the Company
shall deliver to Lakeside on the date hereof one or more certificates
(collectively, the "Certificates") representing the Shares used by the Company
to pay Lakeside for the Designated Services. The Certificates shall be issued in
the name of Lakeside Ventures LLC.

                  (b)      Payment of Par Value. Subject to Section 6.1 hereof,
Lakeside shall, on the date hereof, pay to the Company, in immediately available
funds, $1,600 in cash to an account specified by the Company to Lakeside.

                  2.       Closing.
                           --------

                  Subject to satisfaction of the conditions contained in Section
6 hereof, the closing of the transaction shall be held at the offices of Pavia &
Harcourt, 600 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10022, on the date hereof, or
at such other time and place as the parties hereto shall agree. The closing
referred to in this Section 2 is hereinafter referred to as the "Closing" and

                  (b) State Securities Law. The sale of the Shares shall have

                  6.2      Conditions to Obligations of the Company. The
obligations of the Company to issue and deliver the Shares at the Closing are
subject to the fulfillment to its satisfaction, on or prior to the Closing Date,
of the following conditions, any of which may be waived by the Company in its
sole discretion:

                  (a) Truth of Representations and Warranties; Performance of
         Obligations. The representations and warranties made by Lakeside in
         Section 4 hereof shall be true, correct and complete on the Closing
         Date; Lakeside shall have performed all obligations and conditions
         herein required to be performed or observed by it.

                  (b) Board Approval. The board of directors of the Company
         shall have approved and authorized the transactions contemplated by
         this Agreement.

                  (c) Proceedings and Documents. All limited liability company
         and other proceedings in connection with the transactions contemplated
         by this Agreement and all documents and instruments incident to such
         transactions shall be reasonably satisfactory in substance and form to
         the Company and its counsel, and the Company and its counsel shall have
         received all such counterpart originals or certified or other copies of
         such documents as they may reasonably request.

                  7.       Additional Agreements of the Company.
                           ------------------------------------

                  7.1      Right of First Negotiation and Last Refusal.
                           -------------------------------------------

                  (a)      Notice of Transaction. In the event that the Company
intends to enter into a subsequent transaction in which it will exchange its or
its subsidiaries' securities for services similar to the Designated Services to
be provided by Lakeside under this Agreement (each, a "Transaction"), at any
time within one (1) year from the date of Closing, the Company shall provide a
written notice thereof to Lakeside (the "Notice of Transaction"). Lakeside shall
have the exclusive right of first negotiation with respect to such Transaction
for a period of ten (10) Business Days after the receipt of such Notice of
Transaction by Lakeside. If Lakeside and the Company are unable, in good faith,
to reach an agreement regarding the terms and conditions of such Transaction
within such ten (10) Business Day period, then the Company shall have the right
to negotiate the terms and conditions of the Transaction with a third party. The
foregoing right of first registration shall not apply to any transactions
between the Company and Viacom/CBS.

                  (b)      Notice of Offer. Notwithstanding Section 7.1(a)
above, in the event the Company receives a bona fide offer from a third party
with respect to a Transaction, then prior to entering into such Transaction, the
Company shall provide written notice to Lakeside, setting forth the terms and
conditions of the third-party offer (the "Notice of Offer"). Lakeside shall have
five (5) Business Days from the receipt of such Notice of Offer to match the
terms of the Notice of Offer. If Lakeside offers to match the Notice of Offer,
then Lakeside and the Company shall enter into such Transaction on such terms.
The foregoing matching right shall not apply to any transactions between the
Company and Viacom/CBS.

                  7.2.     "Piggyback" Registration.
                            -----------------------

                  (a)      Registrable Securities. If at any time or from time
to time, the Company shall determine to register shares of Common Stock for its
own account or the account of any of its stockholders, other than a registration
on Form S-1 or S-8 relating solely to employee stock option or purchase plans,
or a registration on Form S-4, or any successor to such forms, which does not
include substantially the same information as would be required to be included
in a registration statement covering the sale of Registrable Securities (as
defined below), the Company will:

                  (i) promptly give to Lakeside written notice thereof; and

                  (ii) include in such registration, and in any underwriting
         involved therein, all the Registrable Securities specified in a written
         request or requests, made within twenty (20) days after receipt of such
         written notice from the Company, by Lakeside, except as set forth in
         Section 7.2(b) below.

                  For purposes hereof, "Registrable Securities" means (i) any
and all shares of Common Stock issued to Lakeside pursuant to this Agreement;
and (ii) any and all shares of Common Stock issued in respect of the securities
referred to in the foregoing Clause (i) as a result of a stock split, dividend,
recapitalization or the like, which has not been sold to the public. As to any
particular Registrable Securities, such securities shall cease to be
"Registrable Securities" when (w) a registration statement registering such
securities under the Securities Act has been declared or ordered effective by
the SEC and such securities have been sold or otherwise transferred by the
holder thereof pursuant to and in accordance with the plan of distribution with
respect to such securities disclosed in the prospectus (compliant with Rule
424(b) under the Securities Act) forming part of such registration statement;
(x) such securities have been sold in accordance with the resale requirements of
Rule 144 (or any successor rule or provision) adopted by the SEC under the
Securities Act; (y) such securities shall have been transferred and new
certificates evidencing such securities without legends restricting further
transfer shall have been delivered by the Company; subsequent public
distribution of such securities shall neither require registration under the
Securities Act nor qualification (or any similar filing) under any state
securities or "blue sky" law then in effect; or (z) such securities no longer
shall be issued and outstanding.

                  (b)      Underwritten Public Offer. If the registration as to
which the Company gives notice is in respect of a registered underwritten public
offering the Company shall so advise Lakeside as a part of the written notice
given pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(i). If the managing underwriter of an offering
of securities effected pursuant to this Section 7.2 reasonably shall determine
and advise the Company in writing that in its opinion the aggregate number of
Registrable Securities requested to be included in the Company's registration
statement creates a substantial risk that the proceeds or the price per share
that the Company (or in the case of a registration which does not include any
securities being offered or sold for the Company's own account, the person(s)

                                       9
<PAGE>

for whose account the registration statement is filed) would receive pursuant to
the offering would be materially reduced or that the success of the offering
otherwise would be materially adversely affected, then the number of Registrable
Securities to be included in the Company's registration statement for the
account of Lakeside shall be reduced to the aggregate amount deemed appropriate
by such managing underwriter; provided, however, if securities are being offered
for the account of other persons or entities as well as the Company, then with
respect to the Registrable Securities intended to be included for the account of
Lakeside, the proportion by which the number of Registrable Securities intended
to be included by Lakeside is reduced shall not exceed the proportion by which
the number of securities intended to be registered by such other persons or
entities is reduced. If Lakeside disapproves of the terms of the underwriting,
it may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company and the
managing underwriter. Any Registrable Securities excluded or withdrawn from such
underwriting shall be forthwith withdrawn from such registration.

                  7.3      Expenses of Registration. All registration expenses
incurred in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance
pursuant to Section 7.2 ("Registration Expenses") shall be borne solely by the
Company.

                  7.4      Registration Procedures. In the case of each
registration, qualification or compliance effected by the Company pursuant to
this Agreement, the Company will keep Lakeside advised in writing as to the
initiation of each registration, qualification and compliance and as to the
completion thereof. At its expense the Company will:

                  (a) Prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement
         with respect to the Registrable Securities and such amendments and
         supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in
         connection with such registration statement as may be necessary to
         comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the
         disposition of all securities covered by such registration statement.

                  (b) Furnish to Lakeside such numbers of copies of a
         prospectus, including a preliminary prospectus, in conformity with the
         requirements of the Securities Act, and such other documents as
         Lakeside may reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition
         of Registrable Securities owned by it.

                  (c) Use its best efforts to register and qualify the
         securities covered by such registration statement under such other
         securities or "blue sky" laws of such jurisdictions as shall be
         reasonably requested by Lakeside, provided that the Company shall not
         be required in connection therewith or as a condition thereto to
         qualify to do business or, except as required under the Securities Act,
         to file a general consent to service of process in any such states or
         jurisdictions.

                                       10
<PAGE>

                  (d) Cause all such Registrable Securities registered pursuant
         hereunder to be listed on each securities exchange or U.S. automated
         inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities
         association on which similar securities issued by the Company are then
         listed.

                  7.5      Indemnification. In connection with any registration
of Shares pursuant to Section 7.2 hereof the parties agree to enter into a
customary agreement providing for indemnification by each party with respect to
information supplied by such party in connection with such registration.

                  7.6      Rule 144 Reporting. From and after such time as
Lakeside is eligible under Rule 144 to effect resales of the Shares, the Company
hereby agrees to file with the SEC all periodic and other reports required to be
so filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and
regulations thereunder (or, if the Company is not then required to file such
reports, it shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable after the written
request of Lakeside, make publicly available the requisite "Rule 15c2-11
information" in respect of the Company so long as and solely to the extent
necessary to permit resales of the Shares pursuant to Rule 144), and it shall
take such further reasonable action, to the extent required from time to time,
to enable Lakeside to resell Shares pursuant to Rule 144 without registration
under the Securities Act. Upon the reasonable request of Lakeside, the Company
shall as promptly as reasonably practicable deliver to Lakeside a written
statement as to whether it has complied with the foregoing information and
filing requirements.

                  7.7.     Adjustment. The parties agree that the following
provisions shall apply in the event that Lakeside, in its sole discretion,
elects during the Service Period to enter into an agreement with a third party
(the "Counterparty") to hedge all or a portion of its position in the Shares
comprising the Payment (the "Counterparty Agreement"). In the event that the
Counterparty Agreement contains provisions requiring an adjustment to the
financial terms of such transaction if the Company consolidates or merges with,
or transfers all or substantially all of its Shares or assets to another entity
as a result of which the Shares cease to be publicly traded (a "Merger Event"),
and, in addition, as a result of such Merger Event, the Counterparty determines
that (x) the creditworthiness of the resulting, surviving or transferee entity
is materially weaker than that of the Company immediately prior to such Merger
Event, or (y) there is a diluting or concentrative effect on the theoretical
value of the Shares for purposes of the exercise, settlement or payment terms
applicable to such agreement, and as a result of such determination by the
Counterparty, Lakeside incurs additional costs or expenses to the Counterparty
in connection with such hedging transaction, then in such event, and provided a
Merger Event occurs within 24 months of the date hereof, Lakeside and the
Company agree to negotiate in good faith and agree upon an adjustment that will
compensate Lakeside for any such additional costs or expenses. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, Lakeside agrees that any adjustment hereunder shall not exceed
$50,000 in the aggregate, provided that either: (i) the securities into which
the Shares are exchanged as a result of the Merger Event are publicly traded on
the NASDAQ stock market or a national securities exchange both before and after
the Merger Event and the surviving entity of the Merger Event shall have a
market capitalization immediately prior to the Merger Event which exceeds the
market capitalization of the Company immediately prior to the Merger Event; or
(ii) in the case of a Merger Event where the surviving entity acquires the
Shares for cash consideration, the cash consideration per Share is equal to or
greater than $6.5625.

                  8        Indemnification. Each party hereto (the "Indemnifying
Party") hereby indemnifies the other party hereto, and its respective officers,
directors, employees, stockholders, agents and representatives against, and
holds them harmless from, any loss, liability, claim, damage or expense

upon written request), arising from, in connection with or otherwise with
respect to any breach of any representation or warranty of the Indemnifying
Party contained in this Agreement or in any document delivered in connection
herewith or any breach of any covenant of the Indemnifying Party contained in

factual matters contained in any certificate or other instrument delivered by or
on behalf of either party pursuant hereto or in connection with the transactions
contemplated hereby shall be deemed to be representations and warranties by such
party hereunder as of the date of such certificate or instrument.

                  9.3      No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is for

shall be found by a court of law of competent jurisdiction to be invalid,
illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the
remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be affected or
impaired thereby.

liability or asserted liability) for which it or any of its employees or
