SPIKE TV'S NEW GAME SHOW "REPO GAMES" PREMIERES TUESDAY, APRIL 26 AT 8:00PM ET/PT

From 495 Productions, The Producers Behind MTV's "The Jersey Shore"

Los Angeles, CA, April 4, 2011 - Spike TV's new, original, unscripted series "Repo Games" will premiere Tuesday, April 26 at 8:00PM ET/PT with back-to back half-hour episodes. One part "Cops," one part "Jeopardy," the innovative game show will make stops across the country to the homes of unsuspecting debtors armed with five trivia questions. Answer three correct, the car will be paid off on the spot, but if the debtors fail, the car will be taken to the impound lot. "Repo Games," produced by the team behind pop culture phenomenon "The Jersey Shore," 495 Productions, is hosted by real-life repo men Josh Lewis and Tom DeTone. Among the cities visited in season one are Dallas and Los Angeles.

Josh Lewis, 30, was raised in Reed City, Michigan. His first career venture was proudly serving in the United States Navy before earning a degree in Political Science from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. It wasn't until 2003 that he was introduced to the car repossessing business by taking a security guard job for a repo company and soon was promoted to repo man. At his peak, Lewis was making $150 per car and has been addicted to business ever since. Lewis currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.

Tom DeTone, 41, was born and raised in the tri-state area until his mid-teens when his family moved to Arizona. At 19, he was introduced to the repo business after attempting to stop what he thought was an attempted car robbery. His quick reflexes and eye for justice immediately landed him the job as a "spotter" and has been working in the field on and off ever since. Detone makes his home in Phoenix, Arizona.

"Repo Games" is produced by 495 Productions ("Jersey Shore," "More to Love," "Tool Academy," "My Big Friggin Wedding"). Sally Ann Salsano serves as executive producer. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's executive vice president, original series and animation, Tim Duffy is senior vice president of original programming for Spike TV and Joe Weinstock is senior director, original programming.

Spike TV is available in 99.4 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. A unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
