SPIKE TV INKS NEW SERIES, "TATTOO RESCUE"

New 10-Episode Series Features Joey Tattoo Who Helps Turn Failing Tattoo Parlors Into Profitable Businesses

Network Also Announces A Second Season For "World's Worst Tenants"

New York, NY - November 13, 2012 - Spike TV has ordered 10-episodes of a new, one-hour original series "Tattoo Rescue." The show follows renowned tattoo expert Joey Germinario (aka "Joey Tattoo") and his team of experts as they travel the country transforming failing tattoo studios into profitable ventures.

"Tattoo Rescue" is produced by Charlie Corwin's Original Media. Vem Miller's Sweatshop Media also serves as executive producer. The series is scheduled to debut next summer.

At one time, they were the symbol of the culture's dark underbelly, but now tattoos have gone mainstream with an industry gross of well over $2.3 billion. Despite the fact that more Americans than ever crave permanent ink to wear like a badge of honor, every day countless tattoo shops go out of business, many falling to the stereotypes of being dark, inhospitable and full of unsavory characters.

Joey Tattoo, a native of Hoboken N.J. will use his 22 years of experience in the tattoo business and his larger-than-life personality to rescue these establishments from financial ruin before it's too late. His knowledge of the tattoo industry is well-known in his home state of New Jersey where he has personally guided a bevy of shops into economic success.

In "Tattoo Rescue," Joey will often have to deal with belligerent owners, obstinate tattoo artists and shops with massive health code violations in his seemingly impossible weekly quest.

Also, Spike TV will once again beat down the door of the most despicable, outrageous, dangerous and insane tenants with a second season of the original series, "World's Worst Tenants." The premiere season of "World's Worst Tenants," (airing June-August), averaged a robust 1 million viewers and improved the timeslot in Men 25-34 by 96% and Persons 18-34 by 114%.

The half-hour series follows Todd Howard, along with his team of eviction specialists, business partner Rick Moore and wife Randye, as they forcibly remove problematic tenants from any of the residential, commercial and retail units in which they manage. Howard and his team will take viewers behind closed doors into the most heated, high-stakes disputes between landlords and their tenants. Each mission documents the process and procedure that allows this no-holds-barred team to operate within legal guidelines to resolve each case on behalf of their clients.

"World's Worst Tenants" is produced by Barry Poznick and John Stevens of Zoo Productions.

Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series and Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike TV. Justin Lacob serves as the network's Executive in Charge of Production for "Tattoo Rescue" and Chris Rantamaki and Jeff Savaiano for "World's Worst Tenants."
