Spike TV Takes a Ride With New Orleans' Best Bounty Hunter With the Series Premiere of "Big Easy Justice" Tuesday, April 10 at 10 PM ET/PT

10 Episode Series Produced by Jennifer Lopez's Nuyorican Productions, Al Roker Entertainment and Bodega Pictures

NEW YORK, March 19, 2012 In New Orleans, he is the top dog of bounty hunters. Spike TV's new unscripted original series "Big Easy Justice" centers on the gritty underworld of post-Katrina New Orleans and follows legendary bounty hunter Tat-2 as he hunts down some of the city's most elusive criminals and brings them back to justice. Ten half-hour episodes of "Big Easy Justice" will premiere starting Tuesday, April 10, with two back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30 PM, ET/PT. Following the premiere, new episodes will telecast for nine weeks on Tuesdays at 10 PM, ET/PT.

With the support of local law enforcement and deep knowledge of the streets as a New Orleans native, Tat-2 (real name is Gene Thacker) has a single mission, to keep his city safe by keeping the bad guys off the street. A military veteran as well as a former police officer from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana, Tat-2 shows no fear on the job and utilizes any means, either physical or psychological, to apprehend his prey. Over his 12 year bounty hunting career, he's brought back more than 10,000 fugitives to jail, whose crimes range from armed robbery, murder, drug possession, domestic abuse and assault, among other crimes.

As a bounty hunter, otherwise known as bail enforcement agent, Tat-2's job is to track down and bring back fugitives who fail to honor their obligations of bond with the court system. The series chronicles Tat-2 and his Elite Fugitive Recovery Team consisting of agents Viper, Wally and Arsenio. Spike TV follows them as they kick down doors, go on stakeouts and put their lives directly in the line of fire as they track down criminals and bring them back to justice. The hours are long and grueling and the work is extremely tough, but Tat-2 and his teams are what hardened criminals fear most in The Big Easy.
