Spike TV's 'MXC' Is Back for Season Five With the Most Shocking Matchups to Date!

Fifth Season of Spike TV's Hilarious Hit Series Premieres Friday, November 10

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16 -- The new season of Spike TV's side-splitting hit comedic series, "MXC," is back for a fifth season, premiering Friday, November 10 at 12AM (ET/PT). Complete with the most outrageous match-ups yet, the new season of 13 episodes kicks off with the premiere episode irreverently pitting "Gay Rights" against "The Religious Right." In this long-awaited, controversial first episode, Adams and Eves combat the Adam and Steves in painfully hilarious competitions, including "Sinkers and Floaters," "Dope on a Rope" and "Rotating Surfboard of Death."

Season five of "MXC" will continue to have viewers' jaws dropping and doing double takes with all new showdowns, hysterically painful challenges and an absurdly comical script. New match-ups scheduled for the fifth season include: My Space vs. Superheroes, Sexual Pioneers vs. The World of Violent Films, Famous Stoners vs. Health Nuts, Famous Felons vs. Babe Magnets and The White House vs. The World.

This critically-acclaimed comedic series is a combination of "Fear Factor," "Jackass" and "Iron Chef," with a touch of "Mystery Science Theater 3000." Using the actual footage from one of the most popular primetime Japanese reality game shows, "Takeshi's Castle," the new series is re-written to create an entirely new comedic storyline. The series is not dubbed and there is not a single trace of literal translation from the original show.

Season 1 of "MXC" will be available October 3 on DVD. For more information, visit http://www.magpictures.com.

Paul Abeyta, Peter Kaikko, and Larry Strawther of R.C. Entertainment serve as executive producers for "MXC." The show is voiced by producers Victor Wilson, Christopher Darga, Mary Scheer, and John Cervenka. Herbert Goss, Ray James, Cece Pleasants and Roy Jenkins also serve as producers. Sharon Levy and Tim Duffy serve as executives in charge of production for Spike TV.

Spike TV is available in 90 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. MTV Networks, a division of Viacom International Inc.
