Spike TV Greenlights New Late-Night Comedic Series 'MANswers'

LOS ANGELES, April 3 -- Spike TV answers all of the burning questions men have been dying to ask, but never found socially acceptable in a new nine-episode comedic late-night series, "MANswers." The fast-paced series works to satisfy the curiosity of Spike viewers by asking the tough questions only guys would appreciate and taking the viewers on a wild ride to find out the answers.

In each episode, "MANswers" races through re-enactments, expert one-on- ones and man-on-the-street interviews to educate Spike viewers on the taboo topics in terms only guys can relate to. The truth is never what you would expect and will inevitably end up being talked about around the water cooler the next day. This half-hour original series premieres on Spike TV in the Fall.

"We've set out to answer the questions guys really want to know, such as, how long can you survive in space without a spacesuit?," said Sharon Levy, Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming, Spike TV. "At the end of a hard day, why think about real life issues when you can find out how to blow up an implant?"

Some sample questions that will be posed this season include: Can you beat a breathalyzer?; What's the best human organ to eat if you are a cannibal?; How long can you survive on beer alone?; Can you beat a drug test?; and How tough are silicone implants?

"MANswers" is produced by Super Delicious LLP and Fujisankei Communications International. Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper and Joanna Vernetti of Super Delicious LLP, Michael J. Miller, and Akifumi Takuma of Fujisankei Communications International serve as Executive Producers. Levy, Tim Duffy, Vice President of Alternative Programming, and Wayne Sampson, Director of Original Programming, will serve as Executives in Charge of Production for Spike TV.

Spike TV is available in 91 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. MTV Networks, a division of Viacom International Inc.
