Rob Dyrdek Returns to the Network with New Series "Ridiculousness" at 10:00 p.m., with All New Scripted Horror-Comedy "Death Valley" Debuting at 10:30 p.m.

Check Out Sneak Peeks of Both Series

Santa Monica, CA (June 29, 2011) - MTV today announced two new series to join the Monday night line-up - Rob Dyrdek's "Ridiculousness" at 10:00 p.m., followed by the scripted horror-comedy "Death Valley" at 10:30 p.m., starting Monday, August 29, 2011.

"Rob Dyrdek is one of the most dynamic and talented personalities on the network, and with 'Ridiculousness,' he brings his hilarious take on viral videos as only he can to MTV," said David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming. "'Death Valley' brings a truly unique blend of comedy and horror to the channel. 'Ridiculousness' and 'Death Valley' are two fun, bold and entertaining new series that continue our push toward diversifying the landscape of the network."

"Ridiculousness" features Rob Dyrdek's unique take on some of today's funniest amateur viral videos and builds them into episodes of edgy, funny and timeless television. Each episode features Rob's unique style and infectious energy as he breaks down amusing web clips by putting them in segments such as "Redneck Good Times," "Worst Case Scenario," "Ridiculousness in Training," "Pogo Stuck," "Hot Mess," "What Happened Last Night," and many more. Featuring commentary from co-hosts Sterling "Steelo" Brim, Chanel "West Coast" (the rapping receptionist from "Fantasy Factory") and complete with a studio audience, the series will also include appearances by some of Rob's closest friends. It's sure to be a ridiculous season!

"Ridiculousness" is executive produced by Rob Dyrdek, Jeff Tremaine, Shane Nickerson and Christian Duguay. The show is produced by Dickhouse. Lauren Dolgen, Michelle Klepper and Kristina Edwards are the MTV executives in charge of production.

Viewers will be taken to a place they've never been before, with MTV's new horror-comedy "Death Valley." The scripted series follows the 'Undead Task Force' (UTF), a newly formed division of the LAPD, documentary-style, as they capture the monsters that roam the streets of California's San Fernando Valley. In a world where vampires, werewolves and zombies live freely, "Death Valley" is a fun, comedic non-stop thrill ride featuring chases, hardcore kills and bizarre encounters.

"Death Valley" stars Tania Raymonde ("Lost"), Bryan Callen ("The Hangover"), Caity Lotz ("Mad Men"), Bryce Johnson ('Sleeping Dogs Lie"), Texas Battle ("Final Destination 3", "Dragonball," "Coach Carter") and Charlie Sanders (Funny or Die's "The Big Dog")

"Death Valley" is executive produced by Eric Weinberg, Austin Reading, Julie Kellman Reading and Tim Healy. Tony DiBari is the MTV executive in charge of production. Spider One is co-executive producer of the series.
