Nationally Syndicated Reality Courtroom Show �Eye for an Eye� Gets Green Light for Season Four
Charleston, SC, 11 January 2007 � Atlas Worldwide Syndications & Distributions announced today that its nationally syndicated reality courtroom series, Eye for an Eye, returns for the fourth season of production. �I�m thrilled,� Producer Scott Kirkpatrick said, �Judge �Extreme� Akim�s courtroom provides me with one of the most entertaining experiences in my production career.�
The decision to move forward resulted from a strong performance in the 2006 November 2006 Sweeps. �Eye for an Eye�s numbers are higher than most mainstream shows,� Sales and Marketing Consultant David Stephani said. �We�re nailing our demographics, and the enthusiasm from both fans and our stations has been overwhelming. The decision to go forward was a no-brainer.�
After reviewing fan feedback and conducting focus groups, Eye for an Eye underwent changes to its format. �We explored what the audience wanted out of the program, and made changes to create a stronger product,� Kirkpatrick said.
The new format includes two court cases in one 30-minute episode as well as legal advice from Judge �Extreme� Akim concluding each episode. �We wanted to maximize the show�s content by incorporating two court cases in one episode,� Kirkpatrick said.
Atlas Worldwide is the only successful independent distributor in the U.S. to break through the corporate barrier and nationally syndicate a court television strip program. �We work hard to create deals that are financially feasible for stations,� Senior Vice President Matt Slechter said. �Understanding stations� needs and how we can meet them is our priority.�
