GSN PAINTS THE TOWN WITH "SKIN WARS," AS NETWORK ORDERS 8 EPISODES OF NEW ORIGINAL SERIES

The One-Hour Elimination Series Puts Competitors Through a Variety of Wild Artistic Challenges to Find the Most Talented Body Painter in the Country

September 12, 2013 (Santa Monica, CA) - GSN announced today that the network has ordered eight episodes of the new original series SKIN WARS, an hour-long competition show that seeks to find the most talented and versatile body painters in the country. SKIN WARS will premiere on GSN in 2014.

"Body painting is in the zeitgeist, popping up everywhere from the streets to magazine covers to national ad campaigns," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, Programming and Development, GSN. "It is a world filled with fascinating characters and astonishing art. As GSN doubles its programming efforts in the next year, we are thrilled to have Skin Wars as our first original entry into the arced competition arena."

"Artists have always known that the human body is a work of art-now SKIN WARS takes that concept to a whole new level," said Michael Levitt, Executive Producer. "I can guarantee that viewers will be utterly amazed by the creations and jaw dropping reveals they see unfold on the screen."

"The contestants are highly competitive, passionate artists with fascinating personalities who all want to prove they have what it takes to win," added Jill Goularte, Executive Producer.

Body painting: the hot new intersection of art and Madison Avenue. There is no more compelling canvas for artists than the human body and SKIN WARS is the first ever competition show designed to find the country's most talented, most versatile body painting artist. This elimination series will put a bevy of talented competitors through a series of ingenious artistic challenges, which may include camouflage, graffiti, multiple model installations, corporate ad campaigns, animal art, and more. Each week one competitor will be eliminated until one winner is the last artist standing.

SKIN WARS is executive produced by Michael Levitt of Michael Levitt Productions ("Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," "Ask Oprah's All Stars," "Billboard Music Awards") and Jill Goularte. The producer is Robin Barcus Slonina, body painter, artist and owner of Skin City Body Painting in Las Vegas.
