Spike TV Gives Little Person Wrestling a New Name When 'Half Pint Brawlers' Premieres June 2 at 11 PM, ET/PT

Six-Episode Unscripted Original Series Follows the Wild Antics of Infamous Little Person Wrestling Troupe

NEW YORK, May 19 -- Spike TV explores the outrageous world of little person wrestling with "Half Pint Brawlers," a new unscripted half-hour, six-episode series premiering Wednesday, June 2 at 11:00 PM, ET/PT. This original series chronicles the often-absurd yet astonishing adventures of one of the most extraordinary performance wrestling groups in the country who will do just about anything inside and outside of the ring.

A combination of "Jackass" and "Little People, Big World," the series will be seen through the eyes of these extreme little people, "The Brawlers." These self-proclaimed hardcore little person wrestlers, led by gregarious owner Puppet "The Psycho Dwarf," entertain crowds in venues all across the U.S. with their unique brand of wrestling prowess. Along the way, Puppet deals with issues surrounding little person wrestling events while, at the same time, keeping his rambunctious wrestlers in line. The series follows their actions inside the ring, but also their wild lifestyles outside the ring, filled with chaotic parties and over-zealous groupies.

The "Half Pint Brawlers" consist of Puppet, the leader and founder of the group; Bobby, the ladies man; Kato, Bobby's brother and veteran wrestler; Mad Mexx, the Immigration Sensation and hard core wrestler; Turtle, the rookie of the group paying his dues to become a Brawler; Teo, the smallest and most athletic member; and Spyder, the regular-size announcer for the group.

In the premiere episode, "The Brawlers" start off the wrestling season with two shows in Kansas City, MO and Wichita, KS. They keep busy by hazing Turtle, the group's newest member, and push him to see just how far he's willing to go to become a Brawler. During the first wrestling event, Kato's head is split wide open and he receives 55 stitches to his dome. Determined to wrestle in the big match in Wichita, Puppet is forced to decide between Kato's safety and pulling off a great show.

Spike.com will feature exclusive "Half Pint Brawlers" content, including clips from the show, extended footage, interviews with the cast members and bios for each of the brawlers. Fans can catch the action at halfpint.spike.com.

"Half Pint Brawlers" is produced by Lumberjack Crew, The Idea Factory and Stephen David Entertainment with executive producers Darryl Silver, Stephen David, Duke Straub, Royal Malloy, Jeff Guerriero and Trip Taylor ("Jackass," "Wildboyz"). The show is created by Straub and Guerriero. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's senior vice president of original series, Tim Duffy is vice president of original programming for Spike TV and Joe Weinstock is director of original series for Spike TV.
