DESCRIPTION: (from Spike TV's press release, May 2011) Josh T. Ryan (Showtime's "Lock 'N Load") prides himself on being the best salesman alive who has sold everything from cars to guns. To him, the art of the deal is what's most important. The ultimate American capitalist, Ryan puts his master mercantile skills to the test each week in "The Hustler." His challenge will be to outsell another top salesman in their respective business. Ryan will take viewers into the unexplored world of items sold that week and give us insight into how these products are marketed, made, and sold for big bucks with each episode culminating in a friendly wager to see who can outsell each other. "The Hustler" is produced by The Jay and Tony Show and RelativityREAL. Jay Blumenfield, Tony Marsh and Tom Forman are executive producers.
