truTV to Create Special Fan-Only Bonus Episode of OPERATION REPO If Fans Reach Half a Million "Likes" for the Show's Facebook Fan Page

Eighth Season of OPERATION REPO Set to Launch Tonight at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

It's not uncommon for online fans to rally together and save a television series from cancellation. Now, for the first time, truTV is offering fans of OPERATION REPO the chance to have a special bonus episode created just for them. As the hit series launches its eighth season of outrageous encounters in the high-pressure world of car repossessions, truTV is asking the show's fans to help the network reach 500,000 "Likes" for its OPERATION REPO Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/OperationRepo). If fans hit the target by the end of the season in April, truTV will create and present a bonus, full-length, fans-only episode on the OPERATION REPO Facebook fan page.

truTV's "OPERATION REPO Facebook Fan Challenge" launched today in the buildup to tonight's season premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). Later in the week, an additional incentive will be unveiled: Fans who invite at least five Facebook friends to take part in the challenge will receive access to a special compilation video of the best moments from the show's previous seven seasons.

"We know fans have been hungry for new episodes of OPERATION REPO and now, in addition to getting an all-new season on truTV, they have the chance to have a special bonus episode created just for them," said Mary Corigliano, senior vice president of brand strategy and digital content/multi-platform development for truTV. "This full-length bonus episode is our way of saying thanks to all the fans for making OPERATION REPO such a tremendous success."

truTV's OPERATION REPO fan page on Facebook features video clips from the show, behind-the-scenes photos, series updates, exclusive interviews and more. truTV will cross-promote the "OPERATION REPO Facebook Fan Challenge" extensively on-air and online.

OPERATION REPO follows a repossession team that has been together for more than seven years and has repossessed everything from hot rods to hot air balloons. The team consists of Luis Pizarro, the owner; his sister, Sonia Pizarro; her ex-husband, Froy Tercero; Froy's best friend, Matt Burch; and Luis' daughter, Lyndah Pizarro.

This season, Lou and his team are back on the job, hitching up cars, trucks and other big-ticket items after the property owners reportedly fail to make payments. But resentment starts brewing as team members Matt and Froy become convinced that Lou is playing favorites, giving most of the jobs to his sister and daughter while leaving the two of them with little to do. The tension sets the stage for an explosive conflict as Matt and Froy consider starting up their own repossession company. The pair also get caught up in an international incident when they take business south of the border.

OPERATION REPO premiered on truTV in April 2008. It has since become one of the network's biggest hits.
