truTV Expands Hit Series SPEEDERS� With Premiere of SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK

New Series Details What Happens When Motorists Go to Court to Fight Tickets

SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK Premieres Thursday, Oct. 16, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) Following All New Episodes of SPEEDERS

truTV's is revving up the concept behind its popular series SPEEDERS� with the launch of SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK. This new series details the fascinating and often hilarious things people say and do in court in desperate attempts to get out of tickets. Premiering Oct. 16, SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK will air Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT), following all-new episodes of SPEEDERS.

Based in Broward County, Fla., SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK shows everyday citizens who transform themselves into some of the wackiest legal eagles ever, giving viewers a laugh-out-loud trip to traffic court. From high-speed daredevils to in-your-face road-ragers, these amateur advocates will say and do anything to get out of a ticket. Experienced and tough, Chief Magistrate Brenda Di Ioia keeps everyone honest as they have their day in court.

Among the wackiest pleas and arguments featured in SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK are the following:

� "Officers pull over red cars more than any other car on the road. It's not fair!"

� "The officer pulled me over because I had a Mohawk."

� "The police have a 'vindictive' against me."

SPEEDERS FIGHT BACK is an expansion of SPEEDERS, the popular truTV series that gives viewers a front-row seat to the madcap excuses and outlandish confessions that cops hear from drivers every day. From the Jersey shore to Hollywood Boulevard, law enforcement patrols the highways and byways to keep roads safe, while contending with displeased motorists from around the country.
