ANIMAL PLANET PREPS TO GO CLAW TO CLAW WITH NEW SEASON OF "MY CAT FROM HELL"
-- Quirky Cat Behaviorist Jackson Galaxy Returns to Rescue Owners from Their Hellish Cats -
(Silver Spring, MD) - Following the spring success of the three-part miniseries MY CAT FROM HELL, Animal Planet triggers a second season with six one-hour episodes set to air in the first half of 2012. The series is a fan favorite among feline lovers and especially resonates with female viewers, bringing in a healthy audience for the network's Saturday night pet-programming block.
MY CAT FROM HELL features Jackson Galaxy, a cat behaviorist who's tough on the outside but sensitive on the inside - especially when it comes to cats and their owners. Galaxy applies 15 years of feline experience and proven training techniques to help exhausted, distraught cat owners improve their relationships with their hellish cats. Armed with his guitar case filled with cat toys and training aides, Galaxy explains the reasons why these cats are causing their owners headaches and then immediately works with the owners and their cats with the goal of curbing the cats' diabolical habits and rescuing their owners from nightmare situations.
MY CAT FROM HELL is produced for Animal Planet by 3 Ball Productions. Melinda Toporoff is the executive producer for Animal Planet. JD Roth and Todd Nelson and Adam Greener are executive producers for 3 Ball.
