SPIKE TV ORDERS SEASONS FOUR AND FIVE OF "1000 WAYS TO DIE"

New York, NY, April 12, 2010 - Spike TV has ordered a fourth and fifth season (a total of 28 episodes) of "1000 Ways to Die" from Original Productions, it was announced today by Sharon Levy, senior vice president, original programming. "1000 Ways to Die," the highly-rated original series showcases some of the most outrageously true stories about those who succumbed to the grim reaper in the most unorthodox of ways. The third season, consisting of 13 episodes, premieres Tuesday, September 14 at 10:00pm ET/PT.

The most recent season of "1000 Ways To Die" (which aired December-February) averaged a robust 1.7 million viewers with a 1.3 rating in Men 18-24. Also, during the course of its second season, "1000 Ways to Die" was ranked among the top five original shows on Spike.com. The average online weekly audience increased 79% versus the prior season and clips from the show continue to be among the most popular video content on the site. In December, the series was the most-watched show on Spike TV's Video-on-Demand.

Each episode takes viewers through a fast-paced full reenactment, interlaced with dramatic witness testimonials, fun historical tidbits, scientific expert explanations and vibrant CGI effects reminiscent of classic comic books. Playing off the commonly misconceived notion, "that could never happen to me," "1000 Ways to Die" works to dispel that myth in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, highlighting the comedic irony in all the crazy ways people can get themselves killed.

Acclaimed producers Thom Beers and Philip Segal of Original Productions serve as executive producers for "1000 Ways to Die." Levy is Spike TV's senior vice president of original series and Tim Duffy is vice president of original programming for Spike TV
