A&E SETS NEW PREMIERE DATES FOR ORIGINAL SERIES "FLIPPED OFF" AND "RAMBUG"

"FLIPPED OFF" WILL PREMIERE SATURDAY, APRIL 28 AT 9 PM ET/PT

"RAMBUG" WILL PREMIERE SATURDAY, MAY 5 AT 10 PM ET/PT

New York, NY - March 19, 2012 - A&E sets new premiere dates for real life series "Flipped Off" and "Rambug." "Flipped Off," featuring Russell Hantz of "Survivor" as he enters the high-stakes world of house flipping in the volatile Houston real-estate market, will now premiere on Saturday, April 28 at 9 PM ET/PT.

Flipping homes has never been an easy business, and since the collapse of the housing market it's never been more dangerous. Time is the new enemy as flippers race to rehabilitate properties before renovation costs climb too high and market prices fall too low. This is the type of risk that attracts Russell Hantz, the Master Manipulator from three seasons of "Survivor," where bold moves can make or break you, and the dollar bill is the bottom line.

Throwing down cold hard cash on a house that you just viewed takes brains, intuition and a whole lot of guts. However, Hantz isn't working alone. Determined to be one of the biggest house flippers in Houston, he's bringing along his big brother, Shawn, as his project manager as well as the beautiful and savvy real estate agent, Kristen. The brothers butt heads more than a pair of rams in a staring contest but giving them some semblance of balance is Kristen, who isn't afraid to slap some sense into the Hantz brothers when their egos get in the way of making money.

"Rambug," about a brawny group of hard-working, over-the-top Italian exterminators from Brooklyn who dress in camouflage and wage war on the city's nastiest critters, will premiere on Saturday, May 5 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Robbie "Rambug" is the burly but loveable owner of Rambug Pest Control. With the help of his eccentric team, which consists of actual family members and friends who have been around so long they feel like family, Robbie runs one of the most successful extermination businesses in New York City. This offbeat, macho team rides around town in a truck with a giant cockroach mounted to the top and fearlessly battles everything from rats to roaches to bed bugs... to each other- Rambo style.

The Rambug Pest Control team is led by Robbie and supervised by his older brother Ralph. They both ultimately answer to their traditional Italian mother Mimi. The general manager of the business is Big Rob, who struggles to juggle his work duties, his relationship with office manager Rose and being a father to an often impertinent Lil Rob, who also works at the company. Lil Rob's best friend and wingman James and rat-trapper extraordinaire Steve round out the Rambug crew.
