Logo Acquires Off-Cable Syndication Rights to Groundbreaking Golden Globe(R) Award-Winning Drama Series 'Nip/Tuck'

Logo Will Air the Entire Seven Seasons in Sequence Beginning in October of This Year

NEW YORK, July 15 -- Logo announced today that it has acquired the off-cable syndication rights to the groundbreaking dramatic series "Nip/Tuck" in a four-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. This deal marks the premiere for the series in syndication. The agreement includes all 100 episodes spanning the complete seven seasons of the Golden Globe(R) Award-winning and multiple Emmy(R) Award-nominated drama.

Set to premiere this October, "Nip/Tuck" will run in three-episode stacks on one night during primetime, with a new stack of episodes each week. The series will be presented sequentially.

"The celebrity guests, moments of jaw-dropping outrageousness and honest depiction of its gay characters and their friends make the series a perfect fit for our audience," said Marc Leonard, SVP of Multiplatform Programming, Logo. "At the end of the day, we see it as a love story between two straight guys who are challenged by the family that they've created - and that's pretty fierce."

"'Nip/Tuck' has been a distinctive hit program for many years," said Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. "It fits perfectly with Logo's programming strategy, and we believe it will perform in the way all off-net shows are asked to: deliver a dedicated, enthusiastic audience that reinforces the overall cable brand, as well as enlarge Logo's traditional audience."

"Nip/Tuck" explores the lives of doctors Sean McNamara and Christian Troy, two talented, hot-shot plastic surgeons whose initial query of patients, "Tell me what you don't like about yourself," sets the stage for a series filled with secrets and deception. Beauty isn't all it's cracked up to be as the straight-laced Dr. McNamara and his unabashedly narcissistic business partner Dr. Troy manage one of Miami's hottest cosmetic surgery practices. As the duo expand their lucrative business, their friendship is put to the test: Sean's dysfunctional family - including his adulterous wife and rebellious teenage son - forces him to reexamine his perfect fantasy life, while Christian's sexual addiction and questionable morals put him at odds with those closest to him. Approaching mid-life, the doctors question the prosperity that has brought them so much and yet has offered so little. From the beautiful to the utterly bizarre, "Nip/Tuck" presents an unflinching and uncensored look at the plastic surgery industry and the outrageous people who make it tick.

"Nip/Tuck" stars Dylan Walsh, Julian McMahon, John Hensley, Roma Maffia, Kelly Carlson and Joely Richardson. Notable guest stars in the series include Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Portia de Rossi, Rosie O'Donnell, Jennifer Coolidge, Brooke Shields, Oliver Platt and Joan Rivers, among many others.

The series was created by Ryan Murphy ("Glee", "Popular"), who served as executive producer with Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin, Lyn Greene, Richard Levine, Sean Jablonski, Jennifer Salt and Brad Falchuk. "Nip/Tuck" premiered in July 2003 on the FX cable network and its 100th and final episode aired March 3, 2010. In its seven seasons, the program earned multiple awards, including a Golden Globe(R) Award in 2005 for Best Television Series - Drama. "Nip/Tuck" is from The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.
