Reality Comedy Series KENNY VS. SPENNY Returns for Its Second Season January 14 on GSN

Longtime Friends Compete for Supremacy in Outrageous Challenges

PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 13 /-- GSN, the network for games, will premiere the second season of KENNY VS SPENNY on Saturday, January 14 with an episode in which stars Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice compete to see who can kiss more women. The announcement was made today by Rich Cronin, President and Chief Executive Officer, GSN, as part of the network's Television Critics Association presentation.

KENNY VS. SPENNY focuses on the sibling-like rivalry between these two longtime friends who first garnered attention for their feature film "Pitch," a favorite at the Toronto International Film Festival. A contemporary real-life odd couple, Spenny is a neurotic "stress case" who believes in winning by playing fair, hard work and preparation. Kenny, on the other hand, is charismatic and a self-proclaimed 'devious genius' who likes to bend the rules in order to win a challenge. These fundamental differences fuel the competition and provide some very twisted comedy.

Each weekly episode brings a new outrageous competition to life. The challenges are no laughing matter to Kenny or Spenny, however, as the result is glory and gloating for the winner and a specially selected humiliation for the loser. The competitions are varied and range from endurance contests to the more sublime mental challenges. The humiliation for the loser comes in the form of an odious task chosen by the winner.

The new season will feature such competitions as "Who Can be the Best Journalist?" "Who Do Old People Like More?" "Who is Braver?" "First One to Talk Loses" and "First One to be Mean Loses." With the competition as intense as ever, the boys' antics continue to escalate and Kenny kidnaps Spenny's mother in an episode and Spenny reacts by holding Kenny's collector recordings hostage.

The most talked about show in Canada amongst the media and its cult following, KENNY VS. SPENNY is one of the highest-rated Canadian-produced reality programs. Known by many as "North Park" and following in the footsteps of "SCTV" and "Kids in the Hall," KENNY VS. SPENNY is not only one of the most popular shows in Canada, but has an online cult following of international proportions.

Created and executive produced by Hotz and Rice, KENNY VS. SPENNY is produced by John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern, Ira Levy, Peter Williamson and Abby Finer. Hotz and Rice also serve as producers and directors; Hotz was recently hand-picked by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, fans of KENNY VS. SPENNY, to write/consult on the Emmy Award-winning ninth season of "South Park."

Blueprint Entertainment develops, packages, produces and finances dynamic and innovative television programming for the worldwide marketplace. Founded in January 2002 by John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern, Blueprint completed or green lit projects with an aggregate budget of US$35 million in its first year.
