CAN BLOWING A VUVUZELA KILL YOU?

SPIKE TV SHOWS YOU HOW IN THE THIRD SEASON PREMIERE OF THE MACABRE COMEDIC SERIES "1000 WAYS TO DIE"

13 All-New Half-Hour Episodes Of The Hit Series From Thom Beers' Original Productions Premiere Beginning Tuesday, September 14 At 10PM

New Season Features Deeper Exploration Into The Science Of Death And A Reexamination Of Infamous Historical Deaths

New York, NY, August 30, 2010 - A shirtless super-fan paints his body blue and dies from hypothermia before anyone notices, but at least he met his maker while supporting his favorite team! A coke addict sneezes while snorting a line and dies when the metal straw jams into her brain - moral of the story? Just say no to drugs.

Spike TV continues to look at the brightly ironic side of death in an all-new third season of the hit series, "1000 Ways to Die" from renowned producer Thom Beers' Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company. The new season premieres on Tuesday, September 14 at 10:00pm ET/PT on Spike TV.

The premiere episode of "1000 Ways to Die" features the bizarre incidents:

a self-liposuction gone wrong

a woman with massive implants gets struck by lightning

a man relieves himself in the Amazon when a fish swims up his urethra

a nature lover attempts CPR on road kill

Other outrageous deaths to look forward to this season include:

death by hairball

a compulsive hoarder trapped by his own collection

a basketball player left hanging while showing off his slam-dunk skills

a Korean foodie whose feast on a live octopus specialty is his last

death of the escape mastermind Houdini, who wasn't able to escape an untimely demise

"1000 Ways to Die" showcases some of the most outrageous true stories about those who succumbed to the grim reaper in the most unorthodox of styles. Each case 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 the myth in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, highlighting the comedic irony in all the crazy ways people can get themselves killed. For the new season, Spike TV will expand its scientific explanations for the subjects' untimely demise so viewers can avoid such an unfortunate fate and will also take a look back through history to explore the causes behind notorious deaths of well-known figures.

Leading up to the third season premiere and throughout the new season, Spike.com will feature sneak preview clips from "1000 Ways to Die." Full episodes and clips from the show will be available online after each episode premieres.

Segal, Nathaniel Grouille and Tom McMahon of Original Productions serve as executive producers for "1000 Ways to Die." Sharon Levy is Spike TV's executive vice president of original series and Tim Duffy is vice president of original programming for Spike TV.
