Detroit Lions' Shaun Cody to Star In Spike TV's 'Super Agent'

Reality Series Chronicles How The Lions' Second Round Pick Decided Between Nine Sports Agents

NFL Superstar Tony Gonzalez To Serve as Host

Series Premieres Friday, July 22

NEW YORK, July 19 -- Spike TV chronicles the arduous decision-making process Shaun Cody, Detroit Lions' rookie and former USC All American defensive lineman, endured in picking a sports agent in Super Agent. The new reality series premieres just as NFL training camps open on Friday, July 22 (10:00-11:00pm ET/PT). In the series, Cody decides between nine prominent sports agents angling to represent him. The eight-episode original series is hosted by Kansas City Chiefs five-time All-Pro tight-end Tony Gonzalez. Detroit Lions running back Kevin Jones appears in the series as well.

Gonzalez, the Kansas City Chiefs' future Hall of Famer, will serve as host and provide council to Cody as he puts the nine agents through a litany of challenges and tasks to ultimately represent him.

"This series lifts the curtain on the intriguing decision-making process top athletes go through in deciding on an agent," said Kevin Kay, Executive Vice President, Programming and Production, Spike TV.

The tasks the various agents will be judged on will showcase their skills in negotiating deals, evaluating football talent, and handling personal relationships with friends and families. From the sidelines of the Senior Bowl, to Super Bowl hospitality tents, to Cody's living room in Hacienda Heights, CA, Spike TV's cameras will follow the agents in their quest to land the multi-million dollar client.

In each episode, a different agent who fails to impress Cody in the assigned task will be eliminated. Gonzalez will serve as his trusted advisor and mentor through the process and will be on hand in each episode to share his eight years of NFL experience in dealing with agents with his younger neophyte. The winning agent is selected on the final episode. The series culminates on NFL Draft Day as Cody receives the most anticipated call of his life from Matt Millen, President of the Detroit Lions.

"The most critical business decision a college athlete makes when becoming a professional athlete is choosing his agent," adds Gonzalez.

Gonzalez, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, has spent his entire eight-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs and is regarded as the game's preeminent tight end. In 2004, he became the first tight end in NFL history to record over 100 receptions in one season. Gonzalez grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and was the rare athlete to play both Division I football and basketball at the University of California at Berkeley.

Jack Bechta, Josh Ripple, and Tami Holzman created the show for NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution and are executive producers. Rick DeOliveira and James DuBose also serve as executive producer and Brian Keith Etheridge is co-executive producers.

Jordan Harman serves as Executive in Charge of Production for Spike TV.
