TLC GETS INKED IN THE BIG APPLE WITH ALL-NEW SERIES "NY INK"

Network Announces New Docu-Series to Premiere in June 2011

(New York, NY) - TLC invites viewers back into the world of tattoos with the new series NY INK. Ami James, brash and loud with a big personality and heart to match, became a household name thanks to the groundbreaking series MIAMI INK in 2005. As the first tattoo artist to gain such celebrity, Ami gave us an inside look into the tattoo culture on the hot streets of South Beach. After taking the industry by storm in Miami, this sharp-tongued, quick-tempered artist has now set his sights on dominating the birthplace of American tattoo style: New York City. TLC has ordered eight hour-long episodes slated to premiere in June 2011.

Even though viewers have seen Ami's inimitable in-your-face attitude conquer Miami, NY INK follows Ami as he puts it all on the line to become the Tattoo King of New York. Always looking for his next big challenge, Ami's new shop (Wooster Street Social Club) will be opening up right in the heart of SoHo. A new shop means hiring a whole new crew, and with that, a whole new set of problems.

As the network continues to build off the success of this franchise, TLC's hit series LA INK and MIAMI INK have proven to be ratings gold and leading forces in the digital space. In 2010, premiere episodes of LA INK received an average number of 1.5 million P2+ viewers. Between June and December of 2010, LA INK drove an average of 4.5MM page views a month, and garnered a whopping 7.2MM page views for the Tattoo Flipbook on TLC.com. In its peak when it was on the air (2005-2008), MIAMI INK averaged 1.2M P2+ viewers, and still continues to be a driving force online as the third largest fansite on TLC (2.5MM page views a month) between June and December 2010.

NY INK is produced by Original Media for TLC.
