goodwill associated with the Business, and all rights thereunder, remedies
against infringement thereof, and rights to protection of such interests therein

         1.2 Assumption of Liabilities. At the Closing, Purchaser shall assume
and agree to pay, discharge or perform, as appropriate, all liabilities and
obligations arising on and after the Closing Date under the Business Contracts
(the "Assumed Liabilities"). Except for the Assumed Liabilities, Purchaser shall
not assume or have any responsibility for any debt, liability, obligation or
commitment of any nature, whether now or hereafter existing, absolute,
contingent or otherwise, known or unknown, relating to Seller, the Purchased
Assets or the Business; provided, however, that Purchaser acknowledges and
agrees that it shall be solely responsible for the liabilities and obligations
incurred or undertaken by Purchaser in connection with the Business Contracts
and otherwise with respect to its operation of the Business after the Closing
Date.

         1.3 Purchase Price. The purchase price (the "Purchase Price") paid by
Purchaser to Seller for the Purchased Assets shall be the assumption of the
Assumed Liabilities plus $300,000 payable in the form of in that number of the
shares of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), of
Hollywood Media Corp., a Florida corporation and the parent company of Purchaser
("Hollywood Media"), determined by dividing $300,000 by the Per Share Price (as
defined in Article XI) for the Common Stock as of the close of business on date
that is four business days prior to the Closing Date. Purchaser shall cause
Hollywood Media to issue the Common Stock as follows:

             1.3.1 Hollywood Media shall issue to Seller that number of shares
of Common Stock with an aggregate value (based on the Per Share Price) of
$50,000 (rounded down to the nearest whole multiple of the Per Share Price) and
delivered such shares to Broad and Cassel, as escrow agent (the "Escrow Agent")
under the Escrow Agreement to be entered into among the parties in the form of
Exhibit 1.3 (the "Escrow Agreement") (such shares are referred to herein as the
"Escrowed Shares"). Within fifteen (15) days after expiration of the ninety (90)
day period commencing on the Closing Date (the "Relevant Period"), Purchaser
shall deliver to Seller and the Escrow Agent a written notice setting forth the
gross revenues generated by the Business during the Relevant Period, which
notice shall be certified as accurate and complete by a duly authorized officer
of Purchaser (the "Revenue Notice"). In the event that the Revenue Notice
reflects gross revenues greater than or equal to seventy-five percent (75%) or
greater of the revenues generated by the Business during the ninety (90) period
preceding the Closing Date (being $29,941.65) (the "Revenue Threshold"),
Purchaser shall cause the Escrow Agent to deliver the Escrowed Shares to Seller
within five (5) days after delivery of the Revenue Notice. In the event that the
gross revenues set forth in the Revenue Notice are less than the Revenue
Threshold, Purchaser shall instead cause the Escrow Agent to release to Seller


                                      -2-
<PAGE>

that number of the Escrowed Shares determined by reducing the total number
thereof by the same percentage reduction in gross revenues set forth in the
Revenue Notice as compared to the Revenue Threshold and to release the remainder
to Hollywood Media for cancellation. Any fractional shares resulting from such
reduction shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share for purposes of the
amount released to Seller. In addition, but only if the Escrowed Shares are not
subject to any lien or pledge in favor of any third party, any claims for
indemnity by Purchaser pursuant to Section 8.3 shall be first satisfied from the
Escrowed Shares. Seller and Purchaser acknowledge that the Escrow Agent is
acting as legal counsel to Purchaser for purposes of the transactions
contemplated hereby. Seller and Purchaser consent to such counsel acting as
Escrow Agent and do hereby waive any conflict of interest resulting therefrom
and agree to indemnify Escrow Agent in the exercise of its obligations to the
extent provided in the Escrow Agreement.

             1.3.2 Hollywood Media shall issue the remaining shares of Common
Stock in the name of Seller and deliver the same to Seller at Closing.

Seller acknowledges and agrees that the certificates representing the shares of
Common Stock hereunder shall bear the following legend:

         The shares of stock represented by this Certificate have been acquired
         directly or indirectly from the Issuer or an affiliate of the Issuer
         without being registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
         (the "Act"), or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction,
         including the Florida Securities Act, and are restricted securities as
         that term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Act. These
         shares may not be sold or transferred unless registered under such Act
         and the securities laws of applicable states and other jurisdictions or
         unless any request for any such sale or transfer is accompanied by a
         favorable opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Issuer,
         stating that such sale or transfer will not result in a violation of
         such laws.

Purchaser acknowledges that Seller intends to pledge the Common Stock as
collateral for a loan to be received from a financial institution or other
lender and, in connection with such pledge, the financial institution or other
lender will acknowledge that the shares of Common Stock are restricted
securities under Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act. Accordingly,
Seller will advise and cause such financial institution or other lender to agree
that in exercising its rights under such pledge it must either comply with the
applicable provisions of the Securities Act or must provide an opinion of
counsel satisfactory to Hollywood Media that any such exercise will not violate
the Securities Act.

<PAGE>

shares of Common Stock, determined as provided in Section 8.3 above, at
Purchaser's sole discretion. The maximum aggregate liability of Purchaser and
its successors and permitted assigns for indemnification pursuant to this
Article VIII shall be limited to the aggregate value of the Common Stock as of
the date on which the indemnification claim is satisfied, determined based on
the Per Share Price as of the date on which the indemnification claim is
satisfied. Purchaser shall have no liability (for indemnification or otherwise)
with respect to Section 8.2 until the total monetary value of all Losses with
respect to such matters exceeds $30,000 and thereafter Purchaser shall be liable
for the full amount of such Losses back to the first dollar, subject to the
limit on the maximum aggregate amount of Purchaser's liability as provided in
this Section 8.4.

         8.5 Survival. All representations, warranties and covenants made in
this Agreement shall survive, and shall not be extinguished by, the Closing;
provided, however, no party shall be entitled to indemnification or payment from

with notice of its claim to indemnification pursuant to Section 8.7 or 8.8 (as
applicable) within one (1) year after the Closing Date.

         8.6 Limitations on Losses. Anything in this Agreement or otherwise to
the contrary notwithstanding:

             8.6.1 No party shall be entitled to indemnification for the amount
of any Losses in excess of the amount of such Losses which would have been

mitigate such Losses upon becoming aware of any claim.

             8.6.2 No party shall be entitled to indemnification for the amount
of any Losses in excess of the amount of such Losses which would have been
incurred, but for: (a) the unlawful conduct of such party; or (b) the breach or
default by such party of any representation, warranty, covenant, obligation or
agreement under this Agreement.

             8.6.3 In determining the amount of any claim for which an
Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article VIII,
the parties shall make appropriate adjustments for tax benefits.

             8.6.4 No party shall be entitled to indemnification under this

         8.7 Procedure for Indemnification - Defense of Third-Party Claims. If
any third party shall notify a party hereto (the "Indemnified Party") with
respect to any matter (a "Third Party Claim") which may give rise to a claim for
indemnification against the other party hereto (the "Indemnifying Party") under
this Article VIII, then the Indemnified Party shall promptly (an in any event
within five Business Days) after receiving notice of the Third Party Claim
notify the Indemnifying Party thereof in writing describing in reasonable detail
the facts constituting the basis for the Third Party Claim; provided, however,
that the failure of the Indemnified Party to so notify the Indemnifying Party of
such Third Party Claim shall not affect the Indemnified Party's right to
indemnification hereunder, except to the extent that (a) the resolution of such
claim is materially prejudiced by the Indemnified Party's failure to give such
notice in such a timely fashion or (b) the Indemnifying Party is required to pay
a materially greater amount or accrue material additional expenses with respect
to such claim. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right at any time to
participate in the defense of any Third Party Claim and, to the extent it
wishes, to assume and thereafter conduct the defense of any Third Party Claim
using legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party; provided,
however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not consent to the entry of any
judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Third Party Claim
without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (not to be
unreasonably withheld). Unless and until the Indemnifying Party assumes the
defense of the Third Party Claim as provided in this Section 8.7, the
Indemnified Party may defend against the Third Party Claim in any manner it
reasonably may deem appropriate. In no event shall the Indemnified Party consent
to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the
Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party
(not to be unreasonably withheld). If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense
of the Third Party Claim the Indemnified Party agrees, if requested by the
Indemnifying Party, to cooperate with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in
contesting the Third Party Claim, or, if appropriate and related to the Third
Party Claim in question, in making any counterclaim against the Person asserting
the Third Party Claim or any cross-complaint against any Person. After
assumption of the defense by the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnified Party shall
have the right to employ its own counsel in such matter, but the fees and
expenses of the Indemnified Party's counsel shall be at the Indemnified Party's
expense. Purchaser and Seller consent to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any
court in which a proceeding is brought against the other party by a third party
for purposes of any claim that Purchaser or Seller may have under this Agreement
with respect to such proceeding or the matters alleged therein. Purchaser and
Seller agree that process may be served on them with respect to such a claim
anywhere in the world.

         8.8 Procedure for Indemnification - Other Claims. A claim for
indemnification for any matter not involving a Third Party Claim shall be
asserted by the Indemnified Party by notice to the Indemnifying Party in
writing, promptly and in any case within twenty Business Days, after discovery


                                      -15-
<PAGE>

of the facts supporting the claim; provided, however, that the failure of the
Indemnified Party to promptly notify the other or to give notice of a claim
within such twenty-Business-Day period shall not affect the Indemnified Party's
right to indemnification hereunder, except to the extent that (a) the resolution
of such claim is materially prejudiced by the Indemnified Party's failure to
give such notice in such a timely fashion or (b) the Indemnifying Party is
required to pay a materially greater amount or accrue material additional
expenses with respect to such claim. Such notice shall describe the facts
constituting the basis for the claim of indemnification in reasonable detail.

         8.9 Escrow; Right of Setoff. Upon notice to Seller specifying in
reasonable detail the basis for such setoff, Purchaser may give notice of a
claim in such amount under the Escrow Agreement. Neither giving nor failing to
give a notice of a claim under the Escrow Agreement will constitute an election
of remedies or limit Purchaser in any manner in the enforcement of any other
remedies that may be available to Purchaser.

         8.10 Exclusive Remedy. PURCHASER AND SELLER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT
THE FOREGOING INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS IN THIS ARTICLE VIII SHALL BE THE SOLE
AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF PURCHASER AND SELLER FOR ANY BREACH OF ANY
REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, COVENANT OR OBLIGATION CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT NOTHING CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION SHALL BE INTERPRETED
TO IN ANY WAY LIMIT THE SEPARATE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THE SERVICE AGREEMENT OR
THE NON-COMPETITION AGREEMENT. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL OTHER
RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES ARISING UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS
AGREEMENT ARE HEREBY WAIVED AND RELEASED.

                       ARTICLE IX - POST-CLOSING MATTERS

         9.1 Discharge of Business Obligations. From and after the Closing Date,
Seller shall pay and discharge, in accordance with past practice but not less
than on a timely basis, all obligations and liabilities it has incurred prior to
the Closing Date in respect of the Business to the extent not assumed by
Purchaser hereunder as part of the Assumed Liabilities.

         9.2 Value of the Common Stock. If on the one-year anniversary of the
Closing Date (the "Trigger Date"), the aggregate value of the Common Stock
delivered to Seller pursuant to Section 1.3 shall be less than $300,000
(determined using the Per Share Price as of the Trigger Date) then Purchaser
shall, within five Business Days of the Trigger Date, pay to Seller the
difference between the aggregate value of the Common Stock as of the Trigger
Date and $300,000 by cashier's check or wire transfer in immediately available
funds to the account specified by Seller. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at
any time prior to the Trigger Date the Common Stock is of a class which is not


                                      -16-
<PAGE>

then listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange or traded
in the over-the-counter market as reported by NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc., or a
successor of NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc., then Purchaser shall immediately pay the
sum of $300,000 to Seller by cashier's check or wire transfer in immediately
available funds to the account specified by Seller and upon receipt thereof
Seller shall return the certificates representing the Common Stock.

         9.3 Compliance with Rule 144. With a view to making available to Seller
the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the SEC which may permit the
sale of Common Stock to the public without registration, Hollywood Media agrees
to use its Best Efforts from and after the date of this Agreement to:

             9.3.1 Make and keep public information available, as those terms
are understood and defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, as
such rule may be amended from time to time ("Rule 144");

             9.3.2 File with the SEC, in a timely manner, all reports and other
documents required of Purchaser under the Exchange Act;

             9.3.3 So long as Seller owns any of the Common Stock delivered to
Seller pursuant to this Agreement, furnish to Seller forthwith upon request a
written statement by Purchaser as to its compliance with the reporting
requirements of the Exchange Act; and 9.3.4 Cooperate with Seller's reasonable
requests in its attempts to dispose of the Common Stock upon satisfaction of the
applicable holding periods under Rule 144.

         9.4 Payments Received. Seller and Purchaser each agree that after the
Closing they shall hold and shall promptly transfer and deliver to the other,
from time to time as and when received by them, any cash, checks with
appropriate endorsements (using their Best Efforts not to convert such checks
into cash), or other property that they may receive which properly belongs to
the other party.

                            ARTICLE X - TERMINATION

        10.1 Termination. Anything herein or elsewhere to the contrary
notwithstanding, this Agreement may be terminated by written notice of
termination at any time prior to the Closing only as follows:

             10.1.1 by mutual written consent of Seller and Purchaser;

             10.1.2 by Purchaser: (a) if Seller has breached any material
representation, warranty or covenant contained in this Agreement in any material
respect and has not cured the same within 30 days after Purchaser notifies
Seller of the breach; (b) if Seller has, within the previous ten Business Days,


                                      -17-
<PAGE>

given Purchaser any notice pursuant to Section 5.2 and the development that is
the subject of such notice has had a Material Adverse Effect; or (c) if any of
the conditions precedent set forth in Article VI hereof have become incapable of
being met through no fault of Purchaser;

             10.1.3 by Seller: (a) if Purchaser has breached any material
representation, warranty or covenant contained in this Agreement in any material
respect and has not cured the same within 30 days after Seller notifies
Purchaser of the breach; or (b) if any of the conditions precedent set forth in
Article VII hereof have become incapable of being met through no fault of
Seller; or

             10.1.4 by any party not in material breach of this Agreement if the
Closing has not occurred by June 30, 2004.

In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to the provisions of
this Section 10.1, this Agreement shall become void and shall be of no further
force and effect, without any liability on the part of any of the parties in
respect of this Agreement. Provided, however, if such termination was the result
of the representations and warranties of a party being materially incorrect when
made or the material breach by such party of a covenant hereunder, the party
whose representations and warranties were incorrect or who breached such
covenant shall be liable to the other party for all out-of-pocket costs and
expenses of the other party in connection with the preparation, negotiation,
execution and performance of this Agreement (including reasonable legal fees),
in addition to all rights and remedies to which such non-defaulting party may
otherwise be entitled.

        12.4 Benefit and Assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and
inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, and their respective successors,
permitted assigns, heirs and legal representatives. Neither Seller nor Purchaser
shall assign or attempt to assign this Agreement without the prior written
consent of the other party. Neither this Agreement nor any provisions hereof is
intended to, or shall, create any rights in or confer any benefits to any Person
other than the parties hereto.

        12.5 Entire Agreement. Except for the Confidentiality Agreement between
Seller and Purchaser dated April 9, 2004, this Agreement supersedes all prior
agreements and communication between the parties with respect to its subject
matter (including the term sheet from Hollywood Media to Seller dated April 22,
2004) and constitutes (along with the Exhibits and other documents delivered
pursuant to this Agreement) a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of
the agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This
Agreement may not be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified except by a
written agreement executed by the party to be charged with the amendment

        12.6  Further Assurances. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement and at no material cost to Seller, at any time and from time to time
after the Closing, at Purchaser's reasonable request, Seller shall execute and
deliver to Purchaser such other instruments of sale, transfer, conveyance,
assignment and confirmation, as Purchaser may reasonably deem necessary or
desirable in order to more effectively transfer, convey and assign to Purchaser
the Purchased Assets. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and
at no material cost to Purchaser, at any time and from time to time after the
Closing, at Seller's reasonable request, Purchaser shall execute and deliver to
Seller such other instruments of assumption as Seller may reasonably deem
necessary or desirable in order to more effectively give effect to Purchaser's
assumption of the Assumed Liabilities.

        12.7  Waiver. The rights and remedies of the parties to this Agreement
are cumulative and not alternative. Neither the failure nor any delay by any
party in exercising any right, power, or privilege under this Agreement or the
documents referred to in this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such right,
power, or privilege, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power,
or privilege shall preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power,
or privilege or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege. To the
maximum extent permitted by applicable Law: (a) no waiver that may be given by a
party shall be applicable except in the specific instance for which it is given;
and (b) no notice to or demand on one party shall be deemed to be a waiver of
any obligation of such party or of the right of the party giving such notice or
demand to take further action without notice or demand as provided in this
Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement.

        12.8  Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid
or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of
this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. Any provision of this
Agreement held invalid or unenforceable only in part or degree shall remain in
full force and effect to the extent not held invalid or unenforceable.

        12.9  Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed, construed and
enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to
conflict of laws principles that would require the application of any other law.

        12.10 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more
counterparts and by facsimile, each of which shall be deemed to be an original
copy of this Agreement and all of which, when taken together, shall be deemed to
constitute one and the same agreement.
