WILL SPIKE TV'S NEW REALITY SERIES "LAST FAMILY ON EARTH" DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF MANKIND?

New One-Hour Competition Reality Series Features Families Competing for a Spot in an Underground Bunker Built to Survive an Apocalypse

New York, NY, June 5, 2012 - If the apocalypse comes at the end of 2012, Spike TV will have a part in the re-population of civilization thanks to its new competition reality show, "Last Family on Earth." The stakes could not be higher for the families who are vying for a spot in an underground state-of-the-art Vivos bunker that is fortified to withstand nearly any end-of-days disaster scenario.

Produced by Pilgrim Studios, the six-episode one-hour series will premiere on Spike TV this fall, with the finale airing just in time for the family to move into their bunker, built by Vivos, the leader in this type of structure construction, and await the world's potential cataclysmic demise on December 21, as predicted by the Mayan calendar.

The families chosen to participate come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are among the 15% of the world's population, according to a recent Reuters poll, who believe the end of civilization is near.

The competition will showcase survival techniques and provide key information that like-minded viewers may also use in preparation for doomsday. In addition to endurance and physical skills, challenges will test the contestants' leadership abilities, integrity and character. A panel of three survivalist-expert judges, along with viewer input via social media, will help determine which family is eliminated each week.

"Last Family On Earth" will not only focus on the Mayan interpretation of the Apocalypse; the show will help prime contestants for a wide range of annihilation scenarios, including a pandemic, global government or economic collapse, nuclear war, reactor meltdowns, solar flares, massive asteroids, lethal climactic change, a pole shift, calamitous earthquakes, and even widespread anarchy.

A reserved spot in an impervious Vivos underground bunker, the show's grand prize, was conceived and developed by Robert Keith Vicino, CEO and Founder of The Vivos Group, whose goal is to provide a long-term shelter for 1 in every 1 million people on Earth to whatever lies ahead in 2012... or beyond.

Details regarding host, casting, and challenges will be announced this summer. "Last Family on Earth" is produced by Pilgrim Studios for Spike TV. Craig Piligian is Executive Producer. Ralph Wikke, Mitch Rosa, Ken Schur and Jason Adler are Co-Executive Producers. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President, Original Programming, and Chris Rantamaki oversees production of "Last Family on Earth," and is Vice President of Original Programming for Spike TV.
