SPIKE TV ANNOUNCES SEASON TWO OF "FLIP MEN"

Original Series Follows Two Real Estate Investors Who Turn Foreclosed Property Into Profit

New York, NY, February 1, 2012 - Spike TV has picked up 12 episodes for a second season of "Flip Men," the network's successful original non-scripted series. The announcement was made today by Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV.

In its first season, "Flip Men" improved its Tuesday timeslot by +74% with Men 18-49, 61% in Persons 18-49, and 34% in total viewers. "Flip Men" is the latest original series that aims at broadening Spike's audience. The network has found similar success with originals "Auction Hunters," "Bar Rescue," and "Ink Master."

"Flip Men" showcases the young, entrepreneurial duo of Utah-based Doug Clark and Mike Baird, who constantly roll the dice with their financial fates by buying and flipping foreclosed property. In each episode, the hosts walk viewers through the often-tenuous process that is involved and provide tips and analysis along their journey.

The show spotlights the fierce, daily bidding war at housing auctions where Doug and Mike acquire foreclosed homes often sight unseen. Following the purchase, cameras follow them as they enter a newly purchased house, where you never know what's behind the door: a biohazard, a meth lab, or a squatter who just doesn't want to leave. Time is of the essence as they have to clean up the place, renovate it, stage it, get it to market and flip it. It's a race against time because every day means thousands of dollars out of their pocket.

"Flip Men" is executive produced and created by Dave Broome ("Biggest Loser") and 25/7 Productions and is shot on location in Salt Lake City. Production details and air dates for season two will be announced shortly.

Spike TV is available in 99.8 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks. A unit of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Viacom Media 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.
