[via press release from Litton Entertainment]


OCTOBER 29, 2010 - Litton Entertainment announced today that they are distributing the frighteningly funny series SCARE TACTICS for Fall 2011. Hosted and executive produced by actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, the so-scary-it's-funny series will be available in syndication as a weekly hour. Tracy Morgan is loved by fans everywhere for his roles on 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, and was recently on the big screen opposite Bruce Willis in Cop Out. His first HBO Stand-Up Comedy Special premieres November 13.

Now in its fourth season, the hidden camera reality series SCARE TACTICS was a hit from its debut when it became the SyFy Channel's best-ever original series premiere in the 18 � 49 age group. SCARE TACTICS pranks have twice been voted #1 in VH1's "40 Greatest Pranks" specials: "Attack of the Rat Monster" in 2006 and "Satan's Baby" in 2009.

With it cinematic shooting and editing style, each episode of SCARE TACTICS plays almost like a miniature horror movie - with lots of nervous laughter of course. From "Vampire Bikers" to "Ghoul Bus," from "Channeling the Dead" to "Tow Truck Killers," the series has featured a haunted house full of entertainingly evil creatures including vampires, werewolves, crazed maniacs, killer clowns, Bigfoot, psycho hitchhikers, aliens, chupacabras, zombie grandmas and Satan's baby.

Set up by friends and loved ones, unsuspecting victims are placed in elaborately staged scary situations involving movie-style special effects and makeup. The horror hoaxes are skillfully designed to tap into the wildest fears of the prank's prey. Viewers laugh along to the hilarious reactions of the show's "stars" as they are caught off guard and on camera.

Scott Hallock and Kevin Healey of Hallock Healey Entertainment are the executive producers and creators of SCARE TACTICS.

Litton Entertainment, the preeminent independent distributor in the television industry, has been creating and distributing quality programming for over twenty years.
