ESQUIRE NETWORK GREENLIGHTS HIT SERIES, "CAR MATCHMAKER," FOR THIRD SEASON PREMIERING JUNE 22, 2016

16-Part Series Features A Wide Range of Guest Stars Including Arch Motorcycle Company Co-founders Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger, Jerry Seinfeld, Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit Model Genevieve Morton, Karrueche Tran and Los Angeles Angels' Tyler Skaggs and C.J.Wilson

Esquire Network's Resident Car Aficionado Spike Feresten Returns to Lend His Expert Advice to Perspective Buyers Looking For The Perfect Maserati, Vintage truck, Mini Cooper, Motorcycles and More

LOS ANGELES - April 7, 2016 - Esquire Network announced today season three of the popular franchise CAR MATCHMAKER, premiering Wednesday, June 22 at 9 pm ET/PT. With 16 half-hour episodes, this season will feature consummate car guy Spike Feresten taking on an entirely new set of challenges as he draws upon his two decades of knowledge and expertise to find the perfect match for his clients, which include a couple looking to live completely off the grid for a year; an Art Director who wants a motorcycle with a sidecar for his best friend Lily the bulldog; and a retired NFL player who wants a luxury lifestyle but is now 'ballin' on a budget.' Featuring a massive range of vehicular eye candy, from a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro, to the new Lamborghini RWD Huracan, to a Classic 1978 Toyota FJ40 and a Saleen Tesla GTX, this season of CAR MATCHMAKER truly puts Spike's skills to the test.

This season, Spike visits Arch Motorcycle Company to see the company's state of the art KRGT-1, the final product of years of building and testing to develop the ultimate performance motorcycle by co-founders Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger; plus, fellow car aficionado Jerry Seinfeld comes along for the ride when CAR MATCHMAKER goes on the road, traveling to the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance event in Florida to help another buyer who has his eyes on Jerry's prized 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR.

In each half-hour episode of CAR MATCHMAKER, Feresten meets with someone in need of a vehicle, gets to know their personalities and preferences, and then draws upon his two decades of expertise and instinct to find three different options perfectly suited to the buyer. After taking the ultimate test drive, the perspective buyer picks their favorite vehicle and rides off into the sunset.

Whether it's Los Angeles Angels Pitcher Tyler Skaggs looking for a car that reflects his professional athlete status, while gaining the respect from his car mentor C.J. Wilson; actress Karrueche Tran searching for that fast, sexy, sleek vehicle to help her escape the paparazzi; or Genevieve Morton, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model on the hunt for her first classic American muscle car, Feresten always comes up with interesting and unique cars to meet everyone's needs.

Feresten's passion for cars began when he was a television writer for "Seinfeld" and "Late Show with David Letterman." Letterman, a car aficionado himself, was the catalyst which fueled Feresten's passion leading to him owning over 50 prized cars in his lifetime. Feresten's uncanny ability to match his celebrity friends with vehicles has made him Hollywood's consigliere of cars. Not only is Feresten a car expert, during his time on "Seinfeld," he earned three Emmy nominations, including one for his well-known "Soup Nazi" episode. In addition to "Seinfeld" and "Letterman," Feresten also hosted his own Late Night series on FOX, "Talkshow with Spike Feresten" in which he executive produced and co-wrote for the series. Feresten has also written and developed other television comedy, penning episodes of "The Simpsons," "Space Ghost Coast to Coast," and "The Jamie Kennedy Experiment.

CAR MATCHMAKER is produced by Critical Content with Tom Forman, Spike Feresten and Ellen Rakieten serving as executive producers.
