Spike TV Revs Up Its 2007 Lineup With 'Bullrun'

New Series Follows High Action Automotive Rally Across the Country

NEW YORK, May 2 -- Spike TV speeds into action with a new event series, Bullrun, based on the international automotive rally of the same name. The 10-episode high-octane series premieres in first quarter 2007.

Bullrun is produced by Pilgrim Films and Television Inc., Andrew Duncan and David Green, and Maloof Television. Craig Piligian (The Ultimate Fighter, Survivor, American Chopper), Andrew Duncan and David Green (Bullrun franchise owners), and Phil Maloof and Andrew Jameson (Maloof Entertainment Group) will serve as executive producers. Sharon Levy, Senior Vice-President of Alternative Programming is executive in charge of production for Spike TV.

Bullrun will put real people behind their favorite wheels in an all out rally across the United States, with a big money prize and even bigger bragging rights waiting at the finish line. In each episode, a different driving team will be eliminated based on their strategy and driving performance.

Never knowing where they are going on undisclosed cross terrain routes, or what obstacles lay ahead, the drivers and their cars will be the main characters of Bullrun. Spike TV cameras will chronicle all the behind-the-scenes adventures from the open road in America's heartland to late-night partying when the Bullrun drivers will be blowing off steam after a long day driving.

"From the regular guy who pours more heart and soul into his Camaro in his driveway than his relationship, to the millionaire playboy who drives a $500,000 McLaren SLR, Bullrun provides action for any guy in love with his car and offers the freedom and adventure of the road," said Levy.

Bullrun will also feature some of the most exotic and hottest, tricked-out cars ever assembled on television from the Ferrari Enzo, to the Shelby Mustang to the Aston Martin Vanquish.

Spike TV, the first network for men, is available in 90 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. MTV Networks, a division of Viacom International Inc. (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B).

Maloof Television, a division of Maloof Productions which encompasses film, television, music and other areas, is an entertainment production company founded in April 2004 by the Maloof family, whose diversified business portfolio includes ownership of the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and the NBA's Sacramento Kings.
