SPIKE TV CRANKS OUT ITS FIRST ORIGINAL COMEDY WITH "FACTORY"

Produced By 3 Arts Entertainment, Six-Episode Series Delves Into The Mundane Yet Hilarious Lives Of Four Friends Working Together In A Factory

Premieres Sunday, June 29 at 10 PM Only On Spike TV

New York, NY � April 28, 2008 � Spike TV debuts it's first original comedic series with "Factory," a day-to-day look at the lives of four disinterested small town factory workers who spend their time fraternizing while avoiding their drab work. Directed, produced by and starring "Strangers with Candy" co-creator Mitch Rouse, this painfully funny look at life as a factory employee premieres on Spike TV Sunday, June 29 (10:00-10:30 PM, ET/PT).

"'Factory' is a unique improvised comedy that captures the everyday lives of four regular guys," says Bill McGoldrick, vice president, original programming at Spike TV. "This is Spike's first original comedy and a great example of the type of comedic series which we are looking to develop. The humor speaks directly to our viewers and Mitch's sensibility is a perfect match for our brand."

Produced by 3 Arts Entertainment ("The Office," "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" and "Everybody Hates Chris"), "Factory" is a send-up of blue collar America and a comedy in the vein of "The Office" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." The series also stars Michael Coleman ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Jay Leggett ("In Living Color") and David Pasquesi ("Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Strangers with Candy"). In the first episode, a work-related accident results in a prime new job opening at the factory. When the supervisor trusts the four friends to decide who among them is best for the job, the guys find themselves covertly trying to sabotage each other with hilarious results.

Bill McGoldrick is Spike TV's vice president of original programming. Lisa Ullmann, who brought "Factory" to the network, is executive in charge of production for Spike TV.

Spike TV is available in 96.1 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. A unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
